Selecting diet plans can be almost as challenging as actually sticking to your diet once you’ve started it. It’s hard to know which one of the thousands available is right, especially since they all contradict each other. Keep reading to learn some of the advantages and disadvantages of some of the more well known diets.
There’s a popular diet that’s been around for a few years that’s known as the Paleo or Caveman Diet. The idea of the diet is to eat in a healthy way like Cave Men did before junk food was created. This means giving up tasty foods, such as chips and pizzas, which is not an easy thing for lots of people.
And if you thought cutting out junk food was bad enough then listen to this: you must also cut out grains as there weren’t many grains back in caveman times. On the other hand, you can eat vegetables, fruits seeds and animal products, including meat, though it should preferably be from natural sources. Not everybody will cope with this diet, so it’s a good idea to do some more research on it before you dive into it.
Some folks center their attention on fat reduction. There are many low fat diet plans, and if you choose one you have to be careful about eating a healthy and balanced diet, which includes some fat. Oils are an important element to your health, without overdoing, you can get these valuable oils in fish, olive and flaxseed.
One example of a good source for healthy fat would be nuts and legumes. Animal products and trans fats are where you find the bad fats (saturated fats), it would be a positive move to lessen the intake of these as well.
Theories abound as to why the same diet plan doesn’t work for everyone. Your blood type is what determines the foods you should eat, according to one theory. While this theory may or may not be true, it is true that some people can have great success with one diet, while others don’t.
Some people feel better following a vegetarian diet, for example, but others will only feel run down. In order to determine the best diet for your body, you need to pay attention to how various foods make you feel.
The number of available diet plans means you may have to try a few before finding the right one. Some diets have more flexibility to what you can eat than others. But you will do better with a diet that doesn’t leave you feeling deprived.
