What Is The Best Diet To Follow For Weight Loss?
Regularly, we see the question of “what is the best diet to follow?”
As the guys over at Examine.com state:
“The best diet is the one that is supported by scientific evidence, healthy, and sustainable for a given individual.”
So when undertaking any diet, you need to ask yourself the following:
– What evidence supports this diet or is it merely a made up fantasy in a pill?
– Will this diet improve my health in the long term?
– Is this sustainable for me and my lifestyle?
Regardless of the diet you use, the foundation will be maintaining a caloric deficit to elicit fat loss. End of.
Many diets, especially “named” ones, have generated systems to enable such a deficit without getting too deep into calorie counting. Instead, they offer a framework to get you results.
With weight loss and fitness, our primary goal is to improve our health for the long term. That and of course to look sexy, but that should be a by-product of health.
So always look to ensure a diet protocol will consider your health.
Avoid very low calorie diets and ones that get you to drink super amazing fat busting shakes instead of eating nutritious food.
And lastly, aim to develop a nutritional foundation that will provide sustainable results. Because even the best diet in the world is useless if you cannot last more than 2 weeks on it.
Aim to build good eating habits, make better food choices, but most of all, reduce food volume enough to create a calorie deficit.
Over time you will see great changes to your health, mind and physique.
Developing and understanding the fundamentals to nutrition will go a long way towards long term health and happiness.
Try and avoid the fad diets that have you rebounding afterwards and back to where you started.
