To be honest with you, I think that diet is a negative word, that’s why I like to call it a healthy eating plan.
Don’t you agree that the word diet enforces negative connotations among most people? And usually with good reason.
This is mainly because of a bad experience or experiences in the past.
I prefer healthy eating plan or something along those lines. You can pick your favourite word and insert here.
So what makes up the right healthy eating plan for the right person?
I mean there are so many out there at the moment that the mind boggles.
Don't Fall For Diet Shakes
Just of the top of my head I can name the Zone, Atkins, diet shakes, hi carb, low carb, carb cylcing, you get the point right?
There’s way too many to mention and it seems that a new one comes out every day.
First up - diet shakes are a big no-no. Same goes for lemon detox diets and anything that make you drink a sugary syrup to lose weight.
Ditto for acai berry scams, green tea diet scams and anything else that tells you to drink magic potion X to lose 20 pounds almost instantly.
On a side note, the real acai berries are apparently very good for you but you don’t need to pay some stupid kings ransom to get them in a magic pill.
Same goes for Green Tea - it’s a great addition to your eating plan because of all the antioxidants.
My mate and fellow Aussie fat loss expert James Kerrison is a big green tea advocate as he wrote in the comments section of my recent 13 tips to fire up your fat loss furnace blog post.
BUT that doesn’t mean you need to use some ‘magic’ diet that makes you drink green tea until it comes out of your ears - and pay a premium for it to mind you.
There is one thing you should know though if you have tried these.
It’s really not your fault. So don’t feel too bad. If I didn’t know any better from my years in the industry I probably would’ve been sucked in too!
The marketing is pretty slick. I admit that.
The only smart way to do it is to roll up your sleeves and crank out some resistance training, mix in some cardio intervals and make sure your diet is as clean as possible.
You can’t out-train a bad diet no matter what anyone or any pill wants you to believe you can.
Eat lean meats, eat fresh veggies and fruit, eat nuts and seeds.
Eat food as nature intended it to be and don’t eat the processed rubbish.
That is the safest way and the best way to find your “right diet”.
Why take a short cut and go for the processed stuff when all you will get from that is increased belly fat, clogged up arteries and a shortened life expectancy.
Surely you don’t want that? I know I don’t.
