What Is The Best Diet Plan For Weight Loss?

Are you looking for the best diet plan for weight loss? Look no further. In this article we explore the important things to look out for, and what to avoid, when looking for a safe and effective weight loss plan.

 

FINDING THE BEST DIET PLAN FOR WEIGHT LOSS

 
Many clients come to our clinic are confused as to the best diet plan for weight loss. The truth is, there is no one size fits all. Everyone has different goals, health challenges and lifestyles etc. However, there are a few non-negotiable that you should be looking out for.
 

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

 

A diet that fulfils all of your micronutrient requirements. It’s vital that your body gets the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients it needs to function optimally.
 
A diet that provides an optimal amount of protein. Too little protein leads to muscle loss and thus a reduction in metabolic rate, lining you up to regain the weight you lose. Protein is also essential for skin health. Collagen and elastin are made from protein so it’s vital you consume enough to support skin health and prevent sagging.
 
A diet that provides enough high quality fats. The days of low fat diets are thankfully behind us. Healthy fats are essential for health.
 
A diet that is sustainable. Any successful plan needs to work around your lifestyle. You shouldn’t have to put your life on hold for it.
 
A plan that is more than a short term fix. One that gives you an understanding of how to nourish your body and establish healthy habits that will support you long term.
 
A plan for maintenance. Losing weight is one thing, maintaining it is another thing altogether. The statistics around weight regain are not good and the majority of people who lose weight go on to gain it back again afterwards. Ensure that any plan you embark on includes a plan for maintenance too.

 

WHAT TO AVOID

 
On the other hand, there are a few things it’s important to avoid.
 
Firstly, the best plan for weight loss should not leave you feeling constantly hungry. You should feel satisfied after meals. This requires eating enough food so avoid diets that advocate eating very few calories for extended periods of time.
 
Those that do not provide the vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats as outlined above. These nutrients are essential for many aspects of health. We should never compromise health for the sake of weight loss.
 
Finally, use your common sense. Ask yourself if the plan supports you physical and mental health, or whether it’s likely to do more harm than good.

 

HOW TO FIND THE BEST DIET PLAN FOR YOU

 
There is no one-diet-fits-all. When you’re not sure as to what strategy suits you best, it can be hard to stay motivated to stick to it.

We then further refine your plan to ensure it’s bespoke to your goals, health status, lifestyle and food preferences. We provide ongoing support to ensure you overcome weight challenges, reach your happy weight and maintain it long term.
