Dieting for success

Proper diet

What is the right diet for you?

You should look for a diet that is something compatible with your lifestyle. When we say diet, we don’t mean the fad diet. The idea is to find a system that includes a well-balanced diet and becomes part of your daily life. Fad diets and meal replacements involve drastic changes in your daily diet and are very difficult to follow in the long term. That is why they are only temporary solutions. You want permanent weight loss, not temporary weight loss.

The diet should include an adequate balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. It should have a high content of high-fiber carbohydrates, unsaturated and non-hydrogenated oils, and low in refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour, and starch) and saturated and hydrogenated fats (high-fat butter, margarine, shortening, sauces creamy). Read food labels on all food products before buying them.

Ask these questions before joining a diet or weight loss program:

1. Are the people who run the program qualified?
2. Could it be seen participating in it for a long period of time, or is it impractical to do so?
3. Is it based on real foods or meal replacements, supplements or food products sold by the organization?
4. Are there health risks? If so, what are they?
5. Is the program designed for a specific period of time or is it based on behavior modification and an improved lifestyle?
6. How much does the program or book cost?
7. Does it offer any support or will you be alone?
8. Do you offer an exercise recipe with specific guidelines?

These are some of the questions you should think about before buying or joining any weight loss program. There are many available online. There are some that are very good. Before buying one, make sure it is practical and offers a good money-back guarantee.
