Aim For A 100% Fad-Free Diet

fad-dietSteering clear of fad diets is the best way to achieve lasting weight loss.

Fad diets don’t work for the long term because most people can’t continue to stick to them. If you’ve tried one, you probably remember feeling grouchy, starved, irritable, or deprived.

A healthier strategy is to avoid drastic changes and focus on one step at a time, such as learning what proper portion sizes look like, until it becomes a normal part of your routine.

Tips for a well-balanced weight-loss plan include:

  • Always eat breakfast, and never skip meals.
  • Eat a variety of lean meats, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.
  • Limit the amount of sugar, refined flour, and saturated fats that you eat.
  • Eat smaller portions.
  • Watch out for liquid calories, especially sugary sodas and juices. Drink water.
  • Make physical activity part of your daily routine.
