Can I simply go on a Diet to reduce weight?

Diet Plan for Weight Reduction
The moment we realize that we are getting overweight we plan to go for a diet. We often prepare this diet plan on our own from available sources. But, there are couple of questions that we need to consider before going for a diet plan. We need to take time to genuinely answer these questions.

  • Is there a common healthy diet for everyone to follow?
  • Can I start dieting without consulting a Professional? 
  • Am I able to consistently follow the diet plan?
  • What best physical activities I can accommodate along with my diet plan?
There is no common diet plan which suits for everyone. The diet plan has to be customized to get the targeted benefits. Though we can find lot of tips on diet plan from Internet, it may not fit for our purpose. The diet plan highly depends on individual body type and condition. The moment we think about overweight, we decide to reduce the Fat and Carbohydrates in our food. But, the reality is different; it is not the fat, protein, or carbohydrates that making us fat. It is the inability of our body cells to convert the foods into energy called metabolism. Hence, it’s getting stored as fat. To overcome this, we need to have right balance of food with appropriate ratio of fat, protein and carbohydrates to fuel our body metabolism to work. This cannot happen by just following a common diet plan, but with highly customized diet to meet the purpose.

Getting customized diet plan is a Science, we need to acknowledge this and consult experienced Professional to get our diet plan done. The dietician will calculate the BMI based on our weight and height, analyze the body type, and listen carefully our current food intake, lifestyle, medical condition to prepare a detailed diet plan. This is the best way to get our diet plan customized to suit our body type and health condition. Finding the right food for our body that can convert into energy is the only way to reduce the weight. This can be done only by Professional, if we try to prepare the diet plan on our own it may not help and may leads to poor health condition.

After customizing the diet plan with the help of Professional, it is important to follow the diet consistently. We need to take a pledge to follow the diet plan without any break to reap the full benefits. There are no shortcuts in weight reduction, we need to keep this in mind and work towards the goal with lot of patience and high level of perseverance.

Once we get the proper diet plan and we pledge to follow the diet diligently, we need to accommodate good physical activities such as walking, jogging, swimming or cycling. This could be anything related to cardio exercises and this has to be practiced at least five days in a week.

To summarize this, if we go for a diet plan on our own without Professional help it may not give desired result for us. We could be in one among the millions trying to do it on their own and failed, gained weight instead of losing. Remember, diet without scientific backing leads to food craving which results in overeating. Hence, it is advisable to follow well defined steps as outlined above,
  • Evaluate the body type and health condition by Expert
  • Get diet plan prepared by a Professional
  • Pledge to follow the diet consistently
  • Add good physical activities to supplement the diet plan.

My metabolism is so screwed up that no matter what diet I try, what I try to reduce or how much I walk or work out, weight doesn't come off. The only thing that works is when I'm in a constant state of stress, anxiety, depression or panic and I don't eat at all. And to be honest I'd rather keep the weight than go through that kind of mental anguish.

My metabolism is crazy fast. It was when I was a child, but it seemed to level off once I hit high school. It only sped up again after having my daughter. Now I struggle to keep weight on.

Very interesting info, Jeno.
But I don't opt for any diet plan. I can lose weight a bit cause I eat in smaller portion now.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog so I could visit you. Of course I'm thinking about a diet at the moment after the over indulgence of Christmas. Very helpful, but raises more questions than I want to think about at the moment. Happy New Year!
