How To Choose The Best Diet For You?

Nutrition is critical to fitness, weight loss or healthy lifestyle. If we don’t pay attention to the food we eat, we may sabotage our exercise efforts or any other efforts toward healthy body and mind. It is vital to know how to harness your meals to support your efforts, not distract from them. Even the best workout regimen cannot counteract the harmful effects of unhealthy diet. Some of us are really good following exact plan and executing it to a tee. The most effective diet is the one you will actually do, depending on your goals and your lifestyle.  Stick to it for at least 30 days whichever you will choose. Ideally I would recommend 12 weeks. Here are main principles of few popular diets:



If yoor priority is helthier diet and longevity try Paleo. Thought of as the “caveman diet,” the paleo diet eliminates any food that our hunter-gatherer ancestors would not have eaten. This diet allows meats, fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthy oils. Eliminated from the diet are dairy, grains, legumes, refined sugars, and processed foods. Proponents of this eating pattern argue that consuming a diet that is high in protein, fruits and vegetables, and low-glycemic carbohydrates prevents diseases associated with the contemporary Western diet including obesity, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes.” Read more…

If you like to experiment this might be it. Personally, took me forever to adjust to ketogenic diet, my body didn’t like it too much, but I loved the study energy and no ‘’crashes” throughout the day . Ketogenic diet is high in fat, low in carbohydrates, and adequate in protein. Fat is consumed in a 4-to-1 ratio to combined carbohydrates and protein, and high-carbohydrate foods like bread, pasta, and starchy fruits and vegetables are eliminated from the diet. Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred source of energy and when there are not sufficient carbohydrates in the diet, the body will burn fat for fuel. And we all have plenty of fat. Read more…


If your priority is to lose some weight fast IF is a great tool. Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern characterized by alternating between periods of fasting, consuming only water or low-calorie drinks, and non-fasting. I did 16 hours fasting, 3-4 times a week. Easier to start fasting in the evening, so hours that you sleep are counted as a fast.  There is no conclusive evidence that this diet is beneficial to one’s health, however supporters of the diet suggest that those who eat less and less frequently live longer.

If you tried it all many times and still cant seem to find a diet that fits you. Weight Watchers is a great lifestyle change that focuses on losing weight through diet, exercise, and a support network. The points system is considered by many as the easiest tool for a person who aims to lose weight over the long term. Dieters learn how to self monitor on a daily basis – thus making themselves accountable for each day. Portions of foods are assigned points. For example if a food is high in fiber and/or low in fat it is worth fewer points. Dieters can either join a Weight Watchers program online or in person…

This one I call “One Size Fits All”. The Atkins Diet has been around for decades, known as much for the controversy surrounding it as for its emphasis on high-protein, low-carb meals and snacks. But the new Eco Atkins Diet, aims to keep the nutritional goals the same while moving away from the all-meat-all-the-time mentality that made the original plan famous. Proponents love that with unlimited protein and fats, you rarely feel hungry. Plus, the Eco version includes vegetarian and vegan options so you don’t have to sacrifice your principles for your waistline. And if you don’t have time to cook, you can order prepared meals and snacks online. Read more…

 

Not everyone is good at following strict plan, the others feel better with general guidelines, so there is no need to beat yourself down every time we slip. If you don’t care for a quick fix and rather become healthier a bit every day, there more than few rules to follow. But you don’t need to adopt all of them at once, start with few or pick one a week…. see how you feel and take it from there. How to create your own diet read in next week’s article.
