Healthy eating needs to be seen as a lifestyle change, not a diet. A diet is “to restrict ones-self to small amounts of food or special kinds of food in order to lose weight” but in reality changing your lifestyle is the key to keeping symptoms away, for good. The challenge is to recognise your eating weaknesses & what triggers them & then create strategies to overcome them.
There are many fad diets that promise to “lose 30lbs in 30 days” and they DO achieve fast weight loss. But please be aware that this weight loss is temporary and most people regain the weight plus a little bit more. Most fad diets have a failure rate of about 95% leading to frustration, depression and a sense of failure. But what happens after that and how healthy are they really? Fad diets are often low in nutrition and low in fibre. Some are so low in daily caloric intake that the body goes into "starvation mode". The first thing it does to your body is reserve fat stores and cannibalise your muscles to use as energy, often leading to lethargy as your body slows everything down.
I write individually tailored nutrition plans to help you achieve your fat loss goal. Each plan is formulated after various questionnaires. By following the food plans you can lose a guaranteed 2lbs of fat per week and if you use this in-conjunction with a tailored training program this will certainly be mostly fat loss and not muscle loss.
