Diet Choices The word “diet” oftentimes strikes a dreadful chord to most who’ve tried so many but have failed to achieve long term weight loss, the most common goal of those who go on them. Some actually feel so deprived as the foods they were used to enjoying were completely prohibited. The result is temporary weight loss but as soon as soon as they go off the diet, they binge and gain the weight back and then some.

The recipes shared are far from fads and trends and are founded on practical achievable and sustainable principles. Vegetarianism and veganism are eating lifestyle practises that take out animal products in varying levels. On the other hand. high-fiber, gluten- and lactose-free, low-carb and low-sodium are guidelines that characterise food selection and consumption. These can overlap and benefit from each other.

It is recommended to adopt an eating plan that is enjoyable and nutritious, economical, achievable and sustainable. One can go on an occasional fad diet to lost weight quickly to get into a party dress but a lifestyle lifetime change towards healthier eating is much better.

Go on a simple keyword search or on various websites or visit the health or food section of any bookstore and it’s easy to get confused by the enormous amount and variety of information from celebrities, doctors and clinics who all claim that their diet is the key to weight loss and health. These continue on to provide testimonials from success stories but rarely reveal the complete picture.

The majority of these “prescriptions” entail a lot of restrictions on what one should eat and strict measurements of what one can. To give an idea of the variety of diets out there, dozens of categories from “Asian diets” to “Detox diets and cleanses” to “Weight loss clinic diets” that dictate food combinations; prohibit food combinations; count calories; weigh food or outright sell a product or set of products, usually food supplements, meal replacements and whatnot.

Those who espouse a lifestyle choice discourage diets and instead promote a reasonable gradual lifestyle change to eating more healthily. They also recommend transitioning into any chosen practise. For example initially going 20% vegetarian then progressing to 50% then higher then eventually going 100%. Some go further and turn vegan completely giving up animal products.
