When it comes to losing weight, what you eat is extremely important to your success. After all, your diet can mean the difference between finally finding a thinner you or continuing to struggle with your weight day after day.
So, if you’re looking for a menu plan that will bring you results for a lifetime, here are the three best to consider:
#1: High Protein Low Carb Diets. This eating style has been shown to not only help you lose weight, but it lowers your cholesterol levels too. It involves creating a menu that includes a lot of protein, fruits and veggies and a limited amount of carbohydrates. A couple of the most prominent high protein low carb diets include Atkins and the Paleo Diet (also commonly referred to as the Caveman Diet).
#2: Natural, or Raw, Diets. Although this diet style is just now emerging in popularity, it has been around since our primitive ancestors from long ago. The basis behind this diet is to eat foods only in their natural, or raw, state to get the most out of them nutritionally (thereby eliminating processed foods that tend to be high in fat). Those who take the strict approach to this diet even forego cooking their foods as they don’t want to alter their vitamin and mineral composition. Generally, these eating plans are referred to as Clean Eating Diets or Detox Diets.
#3: Everything In Moderation Diets. Whereas the previous two examples focus on eating certain types of foods, there are also a lot of diets that stress that you can maintain a healthy weight eating a variety of foods as long as you eat them in moderation. These types of plans focus on portion control and watching your overall calorie intake. Some of the most notable moderation based diets are Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig.
All of these diet types have been successful in helping people lose their excess weight. Pick the one most appealing to you and give it a try. What do you have to lose, other than the fat you’ve been trying to lose all along?
