The best diet to lose weight or lower body fat
Everywhere we look, in recent times more so than ever, there seems to be another new diet or fat loss method.
There is the ketogenic diet, carnivore diet, paleo diet, vegan diet, Atkins diet, to simply name a few of the many diets out there.
With all these different options available, it is easy to get confused and frustrated in figuring out which option you should choose to bring you the best results and get the most out of your hard work in the gym.
When choosing the best diet to lose weight, it is important to understand that all of these diets can bring you great fat loss results, provided you are in a negative energy balance (caloric deficit). However, for the majority of individuals, these approaches are often not enjoyable nor sustainable.
Personally, I am a fan of inclusive, rather than exclusive eating. I find this approach to be more enjoyable and therefore sustainable for both myself and my clients. This is why I am not a huge fan of the diets mentioned above, as they can be restrictive, unenjoyable and therefore lead to short term adherence, only for you to quickly end up back where you started. This can obviously be extremely frustrating.
My advice would be to follow a diet (it doesn’t need a label) where you can consistently eat in a caloric deficit, enjoy your nutrition while consuming adequate protein intake and a total calorie intake that allows you to achieve your fat loss results while still being able to train hard and enjoy a healthy, happy lifestyle.
