Dispelling Diet Myths: How to break those bad diet habits today!


There isn't a more confusing time for starting a healthy eating plan than now. You probably have tried most of the fad diets out there. including a few new ones, and I'm here to say that it really comes down to these 3 things. Diets do not work long-term. It's all about a healthy eating plan and a little bit of knowledge.

1. Whether you eat 10 times or 2 times a day, your total calorie intake over 24hrs determines weight your loss/gain. Start keeping a record of the food you eat for the first week, along with the caloric intake, and I am willing to bet you'd be surprised at what you find!

2. Be realistic with the diet plan as it relates to your food preferences. If you love bread and the new diet that says absolutely no to bread, it will never work long-term! Don't set yourself up for failure before you even start.

3. Unless you're an alien, every human being on planet earth works on a calories in/calories out to gain or lose weight. Try and make the calories you eat as healthy as you can with the right amount of calories for your goal. Stick to your caloric goal daily. It is as simple as that.

I've personally tried all the diets out there and all of them at best work short term. The important thing is to find what works for you and don't be afraid to change the plan if it's not working.
