When it comes to losing weight, there is literally tons of information online available to anyone looking to lose either a little, or a lot of excess weight. If you’re searching for this type of information, and trying to figure out what is the best diet for weight loss, then you could probably use a little guidance in deciding which program to follow.
I know it can be a bit frustrating to visit 10 weight loss sites and read about 10 different ways to shed those unwanted pounds. I mean, a person can literally get stuck in “information overload” when it comes to choosing a healthy diet plan that they feel comfortable in following.
This is especially true if you have already tried many plans, and you’re still searching for one that you really like. You see, the reason why so many people fail on any particular diet plan is because they often pick a plan that’s not suited for their lifestyle, or, their personality.
When you go shopping for a car, the results you’re looking for is something that will get you safely to and from where you want to go. Similarly, when you go looking for a new pair of shoes, you know that when you put them on, they’ll help you walk from point A to point B. In reality, there are many more things that you consider when buying a car or a pair of shoes. It’s not just about transportation, or covering your feet. You also consider style, luxury, how it makes you look and feel, etc.
This same principle applies when looking for a healthy weight loss diet plan. All diet plans have the end goal of helping you to lose weight. But, they all go about it differently. You should consider what types of foods you’ll be eating, when you’ll be eating them, how much you get to eat, what kind of stages does the plan have, what does it cost to get started, is exercise built into the plan, or not mentioned at all, the basic science behind the plan, and, most importantly, is the plan easy for you to follow?
Here are three top diet plans that have worked for many people without busting their budgets:
Every Other Day Diet (EODD) – This best-selling weight loss plan was created by a guy who doesn’t even like dieting. His name is Jon Benson and he’s a fitness author and life coach. He created the Every Other Day Diet for people who don’t particularly like to diet, but do want a no-nonsense way to lose weight, while still enjoying tasty food.
This plan works so well because Jon has created what’s called the SNAPP eating system, which tells you exactly which foods to incorporate into your diet every day. The plan has three phases designed to assist the beginner, the person looking for intense fat burning, and people who are into extreme bodybuilding style fitness. Most folks will feel comfortable sticking with phase one. EODD allows you to have “feed days” where you get to eat whatever you want. He also offers motivational support for everyone on the plan.
Carb Rotation Diet – This is a great plan for those looking to lose 25 pounds or less. There’s been lots of discussion in books and the media about the amount of carbs a dieter should consume. Some plans want you to eat a lot of carbs, while others want you to eat very little. This can get a bit confusing. The Carb Rotation Diet does exactly what the title says – it rotates carbs in your diet, so that you’re never going hungry, or feeling overstuffed with heavy food.
The creator of this plan, Jason Hunter, is a registered dietitian who is well versed in what various types of food can do for your body. His plan incorporates calorie cycling, so you’ll always be eating healthy meals that include protein, carbs, and a certain amount of fat. This type of carb eating plan is way better for your energy level and overall health.
Yay Food Diet – People who have a lot of weight to lose (30 pounds or more) have the most difficult challenge ahead of them. First of all, there’s the psychological hurdle to cross to convince yourself that you can even lose X amount of weight. It’s so much harder to lose weight when you’re going it alone and have no one to share your anxieties and questions with.
The creator of the Yay Food Diet, Rachel Rofe, understands exactly what this feels like, because she’s been there and done that. She successfully dropped 100 pounds and her story was featured in Woman’s World magazine. Not content to rest on her own success, she created a diet membership site where anyone can go and feel like they’re amongst friends. This is a diet plan and support group all rolled into one.
