Diet plans are an area where even the experts don't agree, as you'll find a broad range of theories and opinions on what works best. Books that portray themselves as the best solution for dieting are often contradicted by other bestsellers that seem to be stating the exact opposite weight-loss solution. In what follows, you will read about a couple of dieting theories and programs which may help you decide on a weight-loss program.
In particular there is one very well like diet called the Caveman Diet, or the Paleo Diet, that has been around for quite some time. The general belief is that humans ate much better before junk food was made. This isn't as simple as it sounds, as this means you have to give up many modern convenience and junk foods that most people take for granted. If that wasn't enough, you even have to stop eating most grains, as the Paleo Diet is taking us back to the pre-agricultural period! The plus side is you can eat fruits and vegetables, as well as seeds and meats. The Caveman Diet isn't for everybody so it would be a good idea to look into it more to make sure you agree with it.
The area that most feel is critical is watching their fat intake. Some fat is still necessary to maintain a balanced diet even when you opt for a low fat diet, low being the key word. There are oils such as olive, flaxseed and fish that provide you with the healthy fats that are very important. Another way to get healthy fat is through nuts and legumes. Saturated fats come from trans fats and certain meats, it's best to avoid these fats as often as possible, (these are the bad ones).
Though this may seem very simplistic, getting enough sleep and reducing the stress levels, may be the most important ingredients to a successful diet. Losing weight is virtually impossible if you don't sleep enough and if your life is full of stress. If you find yourself constantly eating because you are stressed, or if you feel tired all the time, this could be a metabolism issue as well.
So you should do everything you can to reduce stress in your life and get enough rest. Aside from feeling more relaxed, you'll also find it easier to stick to your diet and reach your ideal weight.
In conclusion, with so many diet plans to choose from, you may have to try a few of them before you find the one that works best for you. Some require a strict diet plan that tells them exactly what to eat, while others like a little more flexibility. You'll generally do better with a diet plan that doesn't make you feel deprived, even if you do have to cut back on your calories to some degree.
