I think these are all sensible guidelines for diet plans. These are good guidelines that can help us in the long run and this is a great place to start.
If you don’t eat enough, you die. These are good guidelines to follow. If you eat too much, you’ll grow fat. This is a good place to start.
A diet that includes plenty of fruit, vegetables and grains may be a good thing to start with.
Although I think most of these sound good, their application may be limited in some cases. You must keep track of everything that you eat. That can be difficult even for the most disciplined of dieters. The only way to lose weight is to eat less stuff. So although these may sound good, they may not actually be helping to reduce the number of calories we’re eating.
There are plenty of studies that show that even a small amount of calories taken in from other foods will cause weight gain. In fact, research that looked at over 13,000 diets over the course of several decades found that people on diets that included less than one tenth of a gram of fat per day gained an average of 8 pounds. Also, a diet that included too much of a particular food did not help to lose weight. It just added more calories.
The truth is that we are not actually aware of the calories we are eating, so it is easy for us to gain weight. The weight gain has nothing to do with a lack of calories, but a lack of awareness about what we are eating. A diet that focuses on the wrong foods that are not a good source of calories can put us at just as much harm as a diet that focuses on the right foods that are a good source of calories.
This is just another way to say that we are not aware of what our body is doing. The key is to be aware of the reasons for this, not to overeat or eat too much.
So if you are planning to diet, do so with a plan. That means you have a list of foods that you can eat and a list of foods that you can’t. This is the most important part of a diet because dieters usually find it easier to lose weight if they have a plan.
Dieters should always think of their health first. This means paying attention to their diet as a whole and giving them an opportunity to do this. Remember that a diet is a long term plan. It takes time to build up a habit and once that habit takes hold then dieting is fairly easy.
As well as being a habit, it’s a good idea to eat a wide variety of foods. This is the whole reason why many dieters eat the same foods day after day. They don’t want to do this, because the food they eat is boring, and they think it’s unhealthy. This is a bad idea because you end up eating the same foods for so long you get used to them, and then they get boring. There is no point in getting bored.
