Are you on a “diet?” Before you start yet another diet, think about what a diet really means.
Begin a diet keeping in mind that diet means a permanent eating plan. And to be realistic, there is no perfect weight loss diet.
The best diet is the eating plan that you can stay on for the long term.
It’s your lifestyle.
Definition of diet
Here’s the Merriam-Webster definition of diet:
So, when you use the word diet, you are describing what you eat and drink, regularly, habitually, and as a lifestyle regimen that’s repeated daily.
When you begin a diet, select one that you will remain on daily, but it’s OK to have a cheat day.
When you change your diet, you are making a lifestyle change, but stay realistic – you’re going to cheat every now and again.
Why is this important to admit?
Diets are meant to be a permanent, lifestyle change – not a program to follow for a short time. That said, it’s OK to cheat for special occasions like birthdays and holidays.
I highly recommend one Cheat Day a week. If you deny yourself having some of your favorite foods, like bread on a sandwich, the chances that you’ll stick to a healthy eating program typically lessen.
So cheat every now and again, and the foods you are avoiding won’t become demonic cravings.
Which Diet Is Best For You?
If you are starting a new “diet“, remember that you are beginning a new lifestyle. Select an eating plan that not only results in weight loss, but in better health.
Remember that everyone is different, so the right diet for you may not be the right diet for your spouse or another family member.
Do your research when beginning a new diet (eating plan), and try different diets as you research which eating style is the best for you. There are many different diets out there, and again, there is not a one-size-fits-all.
Do your research and re-learn some personal data:
- what’s your body type?
- what are your blood sugar levels?
- what are your BP and cholesterol levels?
- what’s your perfect weight for your body type?
- what are your health concerns?
I recommend counseling with a personal health coach, and before you get started, have a hair analysis done to determine if toxins are present (toxins can slow your progress), and to see what your nutrient levels are (which can accelerate your progress).
Detoxing typically results in weight loss, too.
