Weight Loss Diets Are A Distraction - Don't Complicate It! Image

People waste their time jumping from diet to diet.

Let’s face it, you can’t just diet, lose weight and then go back to your old ways of eating. It always fails.

Instead, how about finding a well-balanced, non-restrictive, nutritional eating style you can adopt for your whole life. Then tweak that slightly to fit your lifestyle as needed.

There are so many different diets out there right now. Of course, all of them claim to be “the one” that’ll change your life. Some

are based on science, while others are more or less based on someone’s ideas.

Some of them work, some of them don’t and some of them seem to work, but in the end, isn’t that great.

Are any of these diets right for you?

Here’s the skinny on low-carb and no-carb diets?

These types of diets dramatically limit your carbs. These include carbs from grains, beans, and fruit. These types of diets limit dieters mostly to proteins, fats, and limited amounts of certain vegetables.

Diets like Keto, Paleo, and variations of these are all low-carb diets.

Now, don’t get me wrong here. I’m not condemning any of these diets mentioned in this episode. You should check them out and see if they suit your own lifestyle. For some people, low-carb diets can be very difficult to maintain.

Just a note here. There’s no such thing as a zero-carb diet. Carbohydrates are in almost every food known to man. It’s just that some foods are naturally high in fat or protein so they’re called fat or protein foods. They still have some carbs.

Low-carb diets just require you to restrict carbs from all foods to below a certain number per day. 

I have tried the Keto diet. It was quite difficult, but it did help me to lose weight, FAST!

But after I went back to my normal diet, I put it all back on again. Keto for me wasn’t the kind of diet I could maintain for a long time. There are many arguments online as to whether it’s sustainable or not.

For me, it wasn’t the best diet. But, maybe for you, it might be.

At first sight, these diets make sense because carbs are one of the three main energy-yielding nutrients. The idea here is that without carbs for energy, the body will have to break down its stored fat reserves and burn that for energy.

Starvation has a similar effect.

This logic seems sound, but these diets have a couple of holes.

For one thing, proteins are also an energy-yielding nutrient. They yield just as many calories per gram as carbohydrates. And, if you overeat protein, it’ll also store as fat in the body.

Also, fats – from meats and dairy products – yield more than twice as many calories per gram as proteins or carbohydrates.

There’s also the matter of acidic waste that’s created from digesting protein. We sometimes see this showing up as gout or stones from overconsuming protein.

This isn’t a problem when you eat meat as part of a normal and healthy diet. But when most of your dietary energy is coming from digested proteins, it can cause problems. It’s something to be aware of.

I love to eat fruit. Eating fruit has so many benefits and they’re very nutritional. Fruit seems to have become the enemy these days with the arrival of low-carb diets. Despite popular belief, fruit doesn’t make you fat when eaten the right way.

To find out how to do this, check out the link I mentioned at the beginning of this episode.

When you stop eating fruit, beans, and grains, your body gets less beneficial fiber and misses out on the vitamins and minerals it needs that are found in those foods.

Why are these diets so popular?

Because they work. You can lose weight fast on one of these diets. That’s mainly because avoiding carbs means avoiding unhealthy carbs like junk food and sweets.

The better solution would be to allow yourself to eat fruit and beans as well as non-processed grains like whole grains, and cereals while limiting fat from animal sources like meat and dairy. A well-balanced diet is the best way for sustainable weight loss.

What about Low-Fat or No-Fat Diets

Fat is also not the enemy. If you research the whole non-fat argument, you might stumble across information that it was the sugar industry who created the whole “fat is bad for you” lie. Why? Because they wanted to move the negative attention off sugar, make people forget how bad it is for you. Misdirection!

Of course, not ALL fat is good for you in large amounts.

Fats from some animal sources can be unhealthy for you – the exception is fat from fish like salmon. The fats from many plants – in the form of oils – are usually good for you. Google to research what oils are best for health and the ones to avoid.

Your body needs fats and even if you were somehow miraculously able to avoid them all, it really wouldn’t be good for you.

Too much processed-sugar stores a lot more fat and creates disease. Reduce that and processed carbs for your health’s sake.

Is the Mediterranean Diet Good For You?

A popular diet based on science that has the approval of many health experts is the Mediterranean diet.

Basically, it’s the diet of people in the Mediterranean region, specifically Italy and Greece. This diet stresses consuming plants and plant oils, especially olive oil, as well as limited amounts of whole grains.

It also limits red meats a lot. Meat that is higher in unhealthy fats, and encourages eating fish and chicken.

Chicken is lower in unhealthy fats than red meat and fish can be higher in fats but has a healthier form of fat.

The Mediterranean Diet is a very well-balanced diet, not to mention delicious.

Basically, the diet stresses variety and moderation so that you avoid unhealthy sources of excess calories while allowing yourself everything that the body needs to thrive.

It’s interesting to note that a number of Blue Zones countries eat this way.
