How to Choose a Diet That's Right For You
From your Weight Loss Guide
No one diet works for everyone: you need to find a diet that fits for your needs. A detailed description of each is in the diet index linked below.
- If you are sedentary, select a diet that emphasizes exercise.
- If you crave sweets, consider the Carbohydrate Addict diet.
- If you are insulin-resistant and not grossly overweight, consider the GO-diet.
- If you have blood sugar or cholesterol problems, consider the Dr. Atkins diet.
- If you do body building, check for the Targeted Ketogenic or Cycling Ketogenic diets.
- If you are a vegetarian and want a more stringent diet, or have liver or gallbladder problems, try one of the low-fat diets.
- If you want to adjust your taste preferences to enjoy simpler foods, try a short-term fast (no more than 3 days) it will refresh your taste buds.
- If you tend to overindulge in tasty, high-sugar and fatty foods, try the Raw Food or Macrobiotics diets. Though these diets aren't intended for that purpose, they can be very effective.
- If you feel that you need support, join an organized weight-loss program like Weight Watchers.
- If you are in search of a spirituality-based program, check into the Weigh Down diet.
- If you don't like restrictive diets, try Suzanne Somers' diet.
- If you would like to go on a low-carb diet but can't give up fruits and unlimited vegetables, try the Protein Power diet.
- If you have heart or blood pressure problems, avoid Ephedrine-containing diet pills.
- If you have obesity-related health problems, ask you physician if you can benefit from one of the weight-loss prescription drugs.
- Choose a diet that you know can be a part of your life style.
- Do not trust diets that promise fast weight loss without any effort.
- Do not trust diets that promise results without exercise and/or changes in eating behavior.
