The Best Weight Loss Diet For You

The low sugar, low carb, high fiber eating plan continues to be the eating plan of choice for me. This plan, along with a healthy dose of daily exercise, keeps my weight normalized, reduces blood pressure and blood sugar, and maintains good cholesterol numbers. See this post: Forget Counting Calories To LoseWeight - Count These Critical Items Instead.
But it’s not the only eating plan that works.

For example, Mark Hyman’s 10-Day Detox and his transition plan into “normal” eating accomplishes wonders in terms of weight loss and healthy numbers. See this article: 

AND, I have a friend who finds the FASTdiet effective for weight. It’s simple – fast 2 days a week at 500 calories per day. The rest of the week you can eat whatever you want. Yup, I hate counting calories because all calories aren’t created equal, BUT who am I to critique a healthy diet that helps people drop weight? See Can't LoseWeight? Here's Two State-of-the-Art Scientifically-Based Methods To Lose WeightFast.  

The FASTdiet does’t always deliver quick weight loss, but 1 pound per week sounds like steady progress toward a target. Once you achieved your target weight, the “forever” eating plan is to fast 1 day a week.

Granted, 500 calories 2 days a week appears to be difficult, but apparently it’s not for this person. The name of the game is to eat low calorie, high food value calories. My friend eats a small cereal with raisins and almonds in the morning, cut up veggies for lunch, and a salad with protein or soup for dinner.

The point is . . . do whatever works for you.

Make sure it is a forever plan or can be transitioned into one.
