Are you confused about the right diet for you?
There’s a lot out there, but today I’m sharing information that may change your life forever.
In 2018, there was a 12-month study conducted and funded by researchers hoping to prove once and for all that the low carb diet was superior to a low fat diet when it came to weight loss results.
You can read the whole study here.
The results of the study found that “there was no significant difference in weight change between a healthy low-fat diet vs a healthy low-carbohydrate diet,” and that adherence was the greater determining factor in weight loss success.
So if it doesn’t matter which diet you follow, how do you decide which one is right for you?
First off, think about the diet that you want to be on.
You may say none, but let’s be real, in order to lose weight you must be in a caloric deficit, so you are going to have to change something.
Of all the things you could change, what are most willing to change?
When you think about your future– what appeals to you more?
Can you give up bread forever?
Are you willing to track your food?
What is the plan you are willing to follow– not just today, but one, five, ten years down the road?
The problem many people create is that they select a plan they can follow for a brief period of time to get quick results (a’ la HCG diet), but then once the diet is over, there is no sustainable way to maintain their weight loss.
The fastest way to lose weight is actually the slowest way to lose weight.
Losing half a pound per week on a sustainable plan is far superior to losing five pounds in a week, and then having no idea how to keep it off.
So let me tell you how you decide.
You revise as neessary.
Many clients come to me totally capable of sticking to a plan six days a week, but when they get to Saturday they seem to go off the rails. Often times this isn’t because they are on the wrong plan, it’s because their head isn’t in the game.
If you want to go from being someone who is on a diet to someone who gets to get goal weight, then finding the plan you can stick with for good, AND being willing to do the (mindset) work to create consistent results is all you need to finally get to your goal.
