Choosing a diet or weight loss program can
be overwhelming. There are so many claims out there, so many diets, so many fad diets,
what’s the next best thing. How do you choose what’s right and evaluate it effectively?
This is Alice Monsaert with some tips for you on just how to do that. If you see a diet
that makes a claim that you can lose 30 pounds in 30 days be aware. If you see a diet or
weight loss plan that eliminates one food group such as carbohydrates, be aware. Proper
nutrition involves taking in enough calories and taking in those calories from all three
food groups which includes carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Realistic weight loss
is about a pound to maybe a pound and a half a week so those claims out there that say
take this pill and lose 30 pounds in 30 days are too good to be true. You really need to
seek the advice of perhaps a personal trainer or a dietitian to help you with your weight
loss goals. It is a daunting process. In real life it actually is pretty simple to do, stay
away from all of the claims that say this is easy. It is not easy. It takes day after
day of diligent work to make sure that you are ingesting the right amount of proteins,
carbohydrates and fats to get the calories that your body needs to function daily. So
choose wisely and seek the advice of a professional should you need more help.
