Which Diet is Best?

First of all, let's get our terms correct.

Webster Dictionary defines "diet" as what is regularly or habitually consumed. What's interesting is that the 3rd definition down describes what one might consume when trying to lose weight because let's face it, when we go on a diet, we're trying to lose weight.

My first point I would like to make is to first re-frame your thinking. You are already on "a diet"- it's how you regularly eat. What you're about to do is go on a cleanse, a fast, or program to achieve the goal of losing weight, having more energy, or just simply to feel better overall.

So- what program, fast, or cleanse should you choose? That's a more difficult question because not all "diets" are going to work for you.

You must choose a cleanse that best fits YOU! It's like a Cinderella shoe. One shoe doesn't not fit all feet.

I've provided a summary of some popular diets and why I might choose one over the other. My best advice is that with whatever you decide:

1. Stick with if for at least 1 month before saying that it's not working for you.

2. If you didn't get the results you were looking for, and maybe you've even gone in the wrong direction, discontinue this eating plan and re-assess. This is where you might want to see a Naturopathic doctor for guidance on which diet plan is best for your body.
