Diets

There is not a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to dieting. What works for someone else might not work for you. Of course, there are some basic principles that should be followed: healthy fats and proteins with every meal; plenty of fruits and vegetables throughout the day; staying hydrated by drinking water or other fluids like tea or coffee (with no added sugars); limiting simple starches such as breads, pasta, rice etc.; reading food labels carefully to avoid hidden sugar sources like corn syrup which can lead to insulin spikes making you hungrier faster. We’ll cover these and more in a series of posts designed to keep you informed and making decisions that work for you.

Paleo Diet

The paleo diet is based on the idea that eating like a caveman will help you lose weight and avoid chronic diseases. The paleo diet is now being touted as "the lazy person's diet" because it promises quick results without hard work. However, the main problem with this diet is its lack of variety, which may leave you feeling hungry or unsatisfied.
1) Variety- Some people are not able to follow a restrictive diet for long periods of time.  If you're bored or find yourself craving foods not allowed on the paleo diet, you might find yourself looking for an alternative to relieve your cravings and ensure your body's needs are being met.
2) Lack of fiber- Replacing grain-based foods with meat means that your fiber intake will be reduced drastically. Fiber helps regulate your blood sugar levels which can prevent overeating since it keeps you feeling full longer.
3) Lack of nutrients- Meat and fish are great sources of protein and iron but they don't provide carbohydrates or any other essential vitamins and minerals found in grains, fruits, and vegetables which can lead to deficiencies in vitamin D, calcium, magnesium etc.
4) Carbohydrates limit fat storage: Studies show that the consumption of simple sugars like white breads might actually make it more difficult for your body to store fat rather than helping with weight loss. This is because when sugar enters the bloodstream quickly (from carbs), insulin levels spike which tells the body to store excess energy as

Keto Diet

The keto diet is one of the most popular diets in recent years. Keto followers eat a diet high in fat and protein while restricting carbs- thus, "keto" comes from the word "ketosis," which is when your body starts to convert fat into ketones for fuel.
Keto dieters often report feeling more satiated on this type of plan, which may be due to the high-fat content. The keto diet also promotes weight loss because it causes fat cells to release their stored energy.

Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest diets you can follow. It’s a no-nonsense diet that focuses on healthy fats, like olive oil; fresh fruits and vegetables; whole grains; and legumes. The Mediterranean diet also includes moderate amounts of fish and poultry, as well as dairy products like cheese and yogurt.
What we all need to know about diets is that they're not one size fits all when it comes to weight loss. People have different needs when it comes to their bodies, which means just because something works for someone else doesn't mean it will work for you. There are some basic principles that should be followed: everything in moderation, healthy fats and proteins with every meal; plenty of fruits and vegetables throughout the day; staying hydrated by drinking unlimited water or other fluids like tea or coffee (with no added sugars); limiting simple starches such as breads, pasta, rice etc.; reading food labels carefully to avoid hidden sugar sources like corn syrup which can lead to insulin spikes making you hungrier faster.

Intuitive Eating

Intuitive eating is a term that's often used to describe how people can eat intuitively without dieting or restricting foods. Intuitive eating is also sometimes called healthy eating. It has been proven to lead to weight loss, improved health and happiness, and better quality of life.
Intuitive eating is not about what you should or shouldn't eat. Instead, it focuses on when and how much you eat, according to your hunger and fullness cues, as well as the needs of your body and mind. This can be done through mindful awareness of your emotions, thoughts and behaviors around food – without self-judgement. Intuitive eating doesn't define any specific diet plan or prescribe any specific rules for food intake; instead it accepts the person's natural inclination for how they want to behave around food.
The goal of intuitive eating is threefold:
1) To listen closely to our bodies' signals for hunger, fullness or satisfaction with meals
2) To find balance in eating "in tune" with our bodies and minds
3) To move toward a more accepting relationship with food rather than an obsessive one
