For the record, I don't recommend ANY diet.
Because they ultimately fail and I want everyone I know to succeed at their goals.
Why do diets fail? Because they are not our diets, so how can anyone else provide a diet that is right for us.
So what do I recommend?... Paying attention to our behaviors. We all have our own issues:
We have to decide what is ultimately best for us – what will serve us well.
Here's the thing though, we don't need someone to tell us eating packaged, processed food, fast food, and junk food is bad, we all know this, but the trick is how do we do what's good and stop what's bad?
We need to set our own boundaries and we monitor and measure our adherence. Ultimately setting a few boundaries will actually increase our freedom.
It's not unlike a bank account. Most of us can't buy anything and everything we want. We need to know how much we have to spend and how much items cost.
Yet, this exactly what we do with our diets – eating what we want, when we want in whatever quantities we want without counting the cost.
The truth is if we want lean, strong, and healthy bodies we need to pay attention.
Using an app like My Fitness Pal helps us pay attention and informs us of the best way to refine our habits to serve us rather than destroy us.
If our body is not looking or feeling the way we want it to, the secret is to look at what we do everyday– It is what we do daily, not occasionally that adds unwanted pounds and subjects our bodies to chronic illness.
The flip side is also true. If we watch our habits and behaviors daily, we will begin to make choices that lead us where we want to be, but it all starts with paying attention.
The best diet is the one that you create intentionally to become the person you want to be. Using My Fitness Pal is a free tool that can help us do this.
