Failing to plan is planning to fail
There are reasons fad diets usually fail. First, fad diets place unreasonable restrictions on calories, foods, or both. Not only do they not provide the nutrition your body needs for good health, hunger and deprivation lead many dieters to cheat on their diets.
Second, even when a diet produces results, they are rarely long-term results. If you lose a large amount of weight in a short period of time, you can expect to regain the weight.
How can you tell the difference between a fad diet and a meal plan that will work? Fad diets promise fast results. With a fad diet, you will be expected to limit the foods you eat, or consume an unreasonably low number of calories per day. One difference in a good meal plan is the emphasis on nutrition. You want to lose weight, but you also want to be healthy. This means consuming the proper mix of foods from each of the four basic food groups every day.
A good meal plan reduces your daily intake of calories, but you will consume enough calories for health and energy.
A third factor is the plan includes daily exercise. In addition, the plan you choose should emphasize long-term results, rather than overnight results. Long-term results can only be accomplished with changes to your overall lifestyle. When you develop new, healthy habits, your ideal weight can be permanent. Instead of looking at diet and exercise as a short-term solution to your weight issues, plan to make these habits a part of your life on a long-term basis.
Designing the best meal plan for you
Your registered holistic nutritionist will design your meal plan to best suit your health needs, health goals, budget and time availability. There are different approaches you can take to meal plans. One example is a plan that includes basic recipes you can make at home. If you enjoy preparing your own meals, you can have all the information you need for nutritious, low-calorie meals.
If you do not like to cook, or have little free time, you can have a plan with meals that are prepared for you by a service. When you select the plan that meets your needs, you are assured of high-quality, delicious products. The biggest disadvantage of this approach might be the cost, although the convenience can’t be beat.
As each person is unique, your nutritionist will work with you to design the solution that will work for you. You can shed unwanted pounds and fat while your body benefits from the nutrition. Instead of the tired, hungry feelings that often accompany deprivation and starvation dieting, you will have strength and naturally aspired energy.
Consuming the proper amount of calories through nutritious food, adequate water intake and daily exercise will produce the results you want. You will be delighted with your slimmer appearance, healthier feeling and more energetic life.
