I agree with killernj13, both works well for me--finally! once I got my head around the fact that just because I couldn't eat one Krispy Cream Donut that I could eat a whole a whole box of gluten-free donuts. I like the meetings for the accountability but I like the online resources because it's easier to calculate points of my gluten-free recipes. Good luck you can do it. I really believe (after years of struggle) that 99% of losing weight is all in the head--the fork is just a tool.
