First, it is worth considering why we seek a weight loss diet program.
After all, to lose weight we simply need to take in fewer calories than we burn. It is a proven equation and it should be straightforward. The problem is, calorie counting is tedious and can be complicated.
Whilst we may in principle understand the idea of cutting back in order to lose weight it is still helpful to have some kind of planned diet programme to follow.
To find the weight loss system that is right for you, first get clear about your own preferences.
Do you want to attend a weekly meeting and meet other individuals who are dieting on the same program?
Do you want meal replacements to help you lose weight?
Are you looking for a weight loss system that targets a particular food group such as a low carb diet plan?
Do you need to be told what to do in detail or are you happy to take a set of general principles and adapt those to suit your lifestyle?
Are you more interested in weight loss systems that incorporate exercise as part of their plan?
It’s only by being clear about what you want and need from a diet program that you can then begin to look at what is on offer and see which ones match your particular needs.
Just about any diet program will work for you if you stick to it. The truth does sound brutal but there is no miracle to weight loss and perhaps you should be a little careful of any weight loss system that claims miracle results. No system by itself can be miraculous. It is you who will be doing the work.
In much the same way as a piece of gym equipment will never make you fit if you don’t use it, no weight loss diet program can help you to lose weight if you don’t stick to it.
Take some time, read the marketing materials, attend meetings as a guest, explore some websites. Get a feel for how the various diet programs work. If you know you will not be happy in the long term eating restricted amounts of foods, perhaps discount those programs that give you a calorie or point allocation per day. Instead, favor those programs that allow you to eat as much as you like but restrict the types of foods from which you can make your selections.
If food quantity is not so much of an issue for you but food variety is, you may be happier eating whatever you want but stopping when you have ‘spent’ your daily calorie or points allowance.
If you find it very difficult to exercise any self control around food or if you have a lot of weight to lose you might want to look at those weight loss systems that include meal replacements as part of the deal. This means you will be substituting at least one and sometimes all meals with a soup, shake or bar provided by the diet company. (This is sometimes not the most social of options).
The diet program that will work for you is the one you find it easiest to stick to and for that reason you need to research the options offered by the various weight loss diet programs on the market, to make the best possible choice.
