What type of weight loss diet is the best?

what type of weight loss diet is the best

To say that weight gain is purely due to an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure is a huge oversimplification of weight loss. As we know everyone is different and responds differently to foods and eating styles. There is no ‘one diet fits all’ or a ‘quick fix’ for weight loss. The key questions I investigate to help determine diet adjustments for my clients include :

  • Do you have sugar cravings/insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome?
  • Do you suffer from depression or have emotional issues around eating?
  • Do you comfort or binge eat?
  • Are you adrenally exhausted and fatigued or not sleeping well?
  • Is your body in a state of inflammation (eg rheumatism, IBD, SLE)?
  • Are you injured and unable to exercise?
  • Are you over-training?
  • Is your job sedentary?
  • Is your extra weight mainly stored around your abdomen?
  • Are you in menopause or suffering hormonal imbalances such as PCOS?
  • Do you have an under-functioning thyroid?
  • Do you have digestive or gut issues?
  • Do you have a fatty liver or problems digesting fats?

Then, along with a detailed case history of my clients and an understanding of their motivation and lifestyle, I work with them to make the changes to support them to achieve their weight loss goals. The changes vary per client but can include :

  • Promoting and explaining an anti-inflammatory diet.
  • Decreasing simple carbohydrates and switching to complete carbohydrates. • Adjusting protein requirements to their needs.
  • Work on portion control.
  • Increase water intake.
  • Promote bowel function and gut health.

So with summer around the corner, why not book in for a consult to ensure your diet is working for your weight loss goals.
