Which Fat Loss Diet Is Right For You?
A fat loss diet should be aimed at burning more calories in your body than you are consuming. However, in my opinion there is not a clear cut ideal diet for losing body fat that works good for everyone. There are several diet plans that would be effective for getting lean. The important thing is that they have to be safe and effective for the user.
With that said, the issues that affect the safety of a low calorie eating plan is how low, how long and what do you eat? For example, I don't believe that extremely low calorie diets are necessary or most effective when you look at the long term, but I do reduce my carb intake to an aggressive level temporarily when I want to get lean fast, so what I'll do is reduce my starchy carb and grain intake during that brief period when I’m working on that really “ripped” look. I'll try to include lots of vegetables.
It’s very important for the reason of compliance to include foods that you enjoy and allow options for a wide variety of food choices. In nutrition and obesity research over the past several years researching all types of diet plans has concluded that almost any diet that is not completely absurd can work in the short term.
Long term compliance is the key for reaching your fat loss success with diet. It’s not so much about the high carb low carb, eat more or eat less. All these are arguments and debates on fat loss. But what really matters for fat loss is remaining in a calorie deficit long enough to reach your ultimate goal. The trouble is, restricted diets and staying in a calorie deficit is difficult in general, therefore most people can’t stick with any diet program and they choose the wrong diet they fall off the program quickly, which can be any program. I believe that a lot of our attention needs to shift away from pointless debates about which diet is best, right or correct.
There is no one diet that will work for everyone. Any diet is right for you as long as it works for you. All you want from a fat loss diet is burning more calories than you consume, and with addition strategies you will ensure that muscle mass is maintained in the process.
