I said in my last blog, that I would look at various diets to see which one is the best. Of course, I was being facetious. There are literally hundreds of thousands of diets. There are hundreds of reasons why one is better than another because they have different purposes. There are belief-based diets, vegetarian diets, semi-vegetarian diets, weight control diets, low-calorie diets, very low-calorie diets, low-carbohydrate diets, low-fat diets, crash diets, detox diets, diets followed for medical reasons, and bunches of other diets.
As we have said before, we describe a diet as a set course of eating and drinking in which we plan the kind and amount of food out in order to achieve weight loss, weight gain, or weight maintenance according to a desired lifestyle. However, for most of us, weight loss is the diet we are trying to follow.
The basic three criteria for choosing a weight loss diet is first, can you lose weight on the diet. Second, is it sustainable. And third, is it healthy. We will look into these criteria in the next few days.
