Use your kids dishes!
Worked for me, pay attention to portion size and drink lots of water.
Using the smaller spoons, forks, bowls, and plates makes you think you're eating more, and it wont cost you anything!

I don't like diets (of course no one does). I just eat healthy...fruits, veggies, watch portions and limit fats and sugars. Pretty basic, but I'm almost back to my prepregnancy weight. I use a calorie counter on about.com to make sure I'm getting enough calories because I'm breastfeeding. I also try to stay active, but I stay at home so it's a little easier for me to do these things.

how bout just eating fresh foods. Don't buy anything that comes in a box or bag. I'm at prepreg weight at 7 weeks, last time it took me 4 months.

My husband does the Suzanne Somers diet whenever he needs to lose a lot of weight fast. He usually loses 20 pounds in a month. She has books at the library that go into detail about it and have recipes, but it basically goes like this: no sugar, alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine, and you don't mix carbs and protein in the same meal. There's no portion control, no counting calories, etc, but there are lots of little rules, like you can't eat this with that, you have to wait so long after eating that to eat this, etc. But it works and it's healthy because you're eating lots of fruits and veggies and whole grains. As for being cheap, I guess it depends on how expensive food is where you live. We eat out a lot, so when my husband does the diet we don't so we end up saving lots of money that way. Good luck!

South beach!! It sucks the first few weeks, but put your mind to it and it works! You can find everything online, or they sell the book for $10 I think. ( if you do it with your spouse be prepare to get mad, they lose the weight way faster then you!!) it sucks;)
