Fad Dieting Is Not a Healthy Way of Reducing Weight
You have to be 100% convinced about the diet you decide to follow; half hearted attempts are bound to fail and land you in deeper trouble eventually (read heavier than before).
Take up a diet only if it agrees with you enough for you to be able to follow it long term.
The diet must work out practically for ‘your’ situation, requirements and circumstances. You are an distinct individual with a certain lifestyle, work pattern, personality type, body needs and hunger time.
Focus on nutrition first, the calories will take care of themselves. When you plate something that is good for you (nutritionally), you automatically eat foods that are lower in calories, so lose weight and gain health both.
