If you’re one of the millions of people who are looking to lose weight, there’s a good chance you’ve asked yourself what the best diet plan to lose weight is. It can be pretty confusing considering there are so many types of diets! Low carb, high protein, low fat…..the list of diets is huge! Today we’ll look at how you can pick an appropriate diet plan for you.
First off, congratulations on making it a goal to lose weight! I don’t want that to sound corny, but I really mean it. Deciding to lose weight is one of the best decisions you can make as it will improve your health, appearance, energy levels and confidence. Now it’s time to pick an action plan and stick to it!
So what’s the best diet plan?
As you may or may not know, I’m always a fan of keeping it simple. I believe that people are constantly trying to over-complicate things when it comes to not only dieting, but many aspects of life. Complicated is usually not better!
So with that in mind, the key to choosing a reliable diet is pretty easy. You need it to be HEALTHY.
Now I know that doesn’t sound groundbreaking, but it’s a simple rule to follow. Your body thrives off of healthy food, and healthy foods tend to naturally be low in fat and calories.
So what exactly does that mean?
First off I always preach avoiding three things whenever possible: too much sugar, saturated fats and trans fat. These three thing can have a nasty effect on your body weight and if you cut down your intake, you should see some major results.
And this in actually quite simple (just how I like it)! If you aim to reduce your intake of these three things, it really isn’t difficult as you don’t have much to look for when reading nutritional labels.
Now of course, common sense applies to other areas. You do want to know approximately how many calories a day you should take in based on your body weight and sex. As well, try to keep your carbs to a reasonable level, but don’t be scared of them at the same time!
Other than that – eat healthy! It’s not hard to pack your diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and nutritious-packed foods that are delicious. Many people are a little hesitant at first if they’re not used to shopping for healthy foods, but it takes no time at all to get in the swing of things.
Bottom line, losing weight doesn’t have to be rocket science! The best diet plan to lose weight is a healthy one that is combined with plenty of exercise.
