Questions to ask yourself before you start a diet

You’ll increase your chances for success if you can answer yes to the following questions:

  1. Does the eating plan include foods from all the food groups (whole grains; fruits and vegetables; low-fat dairy products; lean protein like fish, poultry, and beans or legumes; and healthy fats)?
  2. Does it allow you to eat your favorite foods and foods that you will enjoy eating for the rest of your life, not just a few weeks or months?
  3. Are foods on the plan available at supermarkets where you usually shop?
  4. Do the eating strategies fit your lifestyle and budget?
  5. Does it include enough physical activity?
