What to Look For in Your Best Diet

Pay attention to calorie balance – In order to lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you burn every day. Weigh yourself weekly. Fridays are good: if you’ve had a good week, the scale will tell you so, and it’ll help you stay on track for the weekend. A safe rate of weight loss is 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week.

Take in adequate amounts of healthy, lean protein.  High-protein diets have been shown to increase energy expenditure and help the body to maintain lean body mass. Aim to have a source of protein at each meal and snack.

Focus on healthy carbohydrates and cut back on salts, sugars and starches.  Vegetables, fruits and whole grains are healthy sources of carbohydrate. Vegetables have the fewest calories per bite, followed by fruits, and then grains. All are important to a healthy diet, but while you’re trying to lose, you can shift your focus a bit towards more veggies.

Watch fat intake, and focus on the healthy fats.  The calories in fats add up very quickly, so do your best to trim your fat intake wherever you can. Use small amounts of healthy fats—like olive oil, or nuts, or avocado—to add flavor to foods, but don’t overdo it.

Practice portion control.  Even if you make the right choices, you won’t lose weight if you are still eating too much. If this sounds like you, try cutting your portion size by about 20% to start. It’s a small enough change to not be that noticeable, but it could be just enough to get your weight moving again.

Eat at regular intervals.  Skipping meals rarely works as a weight loss strategy—most people just get too hungry.

Lift weights 3 Times A Week.  By lifting weights, you will burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing   weight.

Do a “Carb Re-feed” once per week.  You can take one day “off” per week where you eat more carbs. Many people prefer Saturday. If you must have a cheat meal and eat something unhealthy, then do it on this day.  If you start doing it more often than once per week then you’re not going to see much success on this plan. You will gain some weight during your re-feed day, but most of it will be water weight and you will lose it again in the next 1-2 days.

Try on Your Skinny Jeans Every Friday –Why Friday? Weekends are typically a tougher time to stay on diets, she says. And the Friday morning try-on will motivate you to watch your eating during the weekend.

There is no single, magical way to lose weight. Everyone’s body is different, which means everyone’s optimal diet is also different. But essentially, losing weight comes down to three main factors: exercise, food, and mindset.

If there were a single best diet for weight loss—one that worked for everyone—we probably wouldn’t hear about some new diet craze every few months.  The best weight loss diet for you is one that will take your lifestyle, your usual eating patterns, your likes and dislikes into account.
