Some of them work well, some don't; they have their advantages and disadvantages, and they all share the common ground; diets are not sustainable for an extended period of time.
You can force yourself to stick to the particular diet, to remove a group of food or to keep low calories but sooner or later you will drop the ball. Your body will demand that. And you will put the weight back on, and you will have to start again.
This is the main reason we are losing the battle against the fat.
The cards are stacked against us.
There is too much food around us, and we are programmed to eat as much as we can. We simply cannot help ourselves.
We try too much, going on diets, trying new, perfect pills, etc.
You cannot outsmart your body and crash dieting works only for a short period.
So next time, instead of going ''on a diet'', try to implement those couple of rules and claim your health back!
- Keep it simple.
- Don't count calories.
- Eat when you are hungry.
- Eat foods with the high nutritional value, mostly vegetables, healthy fats and proteins.
- Cook from scratch.
- Don't eat anything from the package; processed and over marketed. Good food doesn't need a flashy box and TV advert.
- And lastly, if in doubt, ask your great-grandma: if she cannot recognise it, it's not food.
And that's it.
