If you’re trying to lose weight, the list of diets to choose from can lead you searching for comfort food. How do you know which one is really the best? It turns out, the answer is up to you.
Research shows most diets lead to the same amount of weight loss by six months, as long as you’re burning more calories than you’re taking in, and sticking with the program. Consistency seems to be the most important.
A “diet” shouldn’t be a diet at all, but a long-term lifestyle change. Afterall, the first three letters in the word diet, spell die.
But consistently making wise nutrition and activity changes, that’s where you really find success in losing—and more importantly, keeping off weight.
Lifestyle changes that are easy to follow, get a “thumbs up” from your doctor, and are ones you want to stick with, will be the best for you. Ultimately, the key to cutting calories may just be … commitment.
