I am looking for something like WW but free and very simple, no brainer.  Like probably with menus.  But something that I can input preferences, like for example I hate eggs as a dish (they are ok in a recipe) but all the diets I have found online (if they even have an option to exclude something like eggs) exclude the eggs from the entire diet not just as say, scrambled eggs.  I HATE scrambled eggs/eggwhites  - it shouldn't be so hard to find something without those on the menu.  lol.  Or if anyone can summarize what WW is like now - I was on it before and calculating those points became an obsession and i was obsessed with food which led to me eating MORE.  I need something simple with menus or menu choices so i can just pick stuff to eat for the week without a lot of agonizing and obsessing and calculating. Does WW still do points? (Also, I prefer something free vs WW anyway.)  Help!

Thanks!  I definitely don't want something like a typical low calorie no calorie diet, I guess more examples of healthy eating meals that are filling and taste good preferably with the calorie counts shown.  Because I don't really know what to eat besides obvious stuff like salads and grilled chicken.  I am sooo not into that anymore.  I know its possible because my sister is rail thin and eats what appears to be normal food and not salads all the time.  I am checking out sparkpeople right now...
