How To Choose The Right Diet For You?
There are several diets that you may come across in the world of weight loss and fitness. But that doesn’t mean you should blindly pick any diet plan from the pile and stick to it. Especially when it comes to weight loss, a one-size-fits-all approach does not work. That’s because you are unique, so is your body.
There are some general tips and strategies you can follow to ensure you end up with the right diet. Want to know how? Just ask yourself these below-listed questions while choosing the right diet for yourself, and you should be good to go!
Does the diet include foods that are easily accessible to you?
What’s the whole point of following a diet if the foods included are not within your reach? Ensure that most of the foods recommended by the diet can be easily found at the nearest supermarkets and local stores.
Additionally, ensure that the recommended foods are affordable and something you can easily prepare and enjoy.
Does the diet suit your usual eating style?
If you’re usually used to eating two meals a day, but the diet plan requires you to eat five meals daily, it is unlikely that you’ll stick to the diet. No matter how healthy the diet is, taking a huge leap from 2 meals to 5 meals a day is rather difficult. Hence, it is best to opt for a plan that matches or is at least close to your regular eating pattern.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Is the plan family-friendly? Can everyone at home follow the eating pattern?
- Can the diet plan accommodate my dining-out and traveling plans?
- Can I really stick to the recommended number of meals or timing?
- Do I have to learn a special cooking technique?
- Can I live on this diet forever?
One of the first questions you need to ask as soon as you come across a diet plan is if you can live on it forever? That’s because once you go back to your “before the diet” lifestyle, like it or not, but the weight will come back too.
Can I still consume my favorite meals and snacks?
Some strict diet plans come with a long list of “forbidden” foods, allowing little to no room for indulgences. Such strict restrictions can also trigger food binges and cravings in some people.
If you cannot go a day without having a cup of sweetened tea or a glass of wine, then you should look for a more flexible diet that allows you to consume your favourite foods in small portions.
Does the diet match my exercise tolerance?
Everyone should do at least some kind of exercise regularly. However, while some people don’t mind hitting the gym for a good 1-2 hours of high-intensity workout, others do well with some relaxing yoga or other aerobic exercises.
