“Diets” don’t work.
That’s my experience.
The reason? We think of diets as temporary, something we have to endure for a certain amount of time before we can go back to our regular habits.
Eating right can’t be a temporary thing. I’ve learned this the hard way. Eating right has to be a lifestyle. It has to be something we do nearly every day, for the rest of our lives.
Its wonderful to lose weight. In fact, it feels really good to shed unnecessary pounds. However, doing it with a diet will only assure that the weight comes right back as soon as your diet is over.
Instead of picking a “diet” learn about nutrition, how your body uses and changes certain types of foods and start making changes in your kitchen to reflect that knowledge. Start writing down (or entering into a smartphone) everything you eat. This will tell you where your nutritional deficiencies are and where you need to start making changes first.
Don’t assume that this is “easy”. Many people find that it is very hard to break their addictions to sugar, soda, and unhealthy carbs.
Start slow, take it one step at a time and make meaningful changes that you can live with for the rest of your life.
Look at what you’re eating, and the answer will probably be right in front of you.
