The perfect diet

I needed some help with this one. We're on the look out for the perfect diet. Is there such a thing? In my opinion, no.

With weight loss, I'm often asked what the best diet is, and my answer is always "yours". You are familiar with your own diet, you know what you like and don't like, and the easiest diets for weight loss are the ones you can stick to.

If you're trying to lose weight, strictly speaking, it doesn't matter what you eat, just how much. If you consistently eat and drink more calories than you need, you will put on weight, and in contrast, if you consistently eat and drink fewer calories than you need, you will lose weight.

It's obviously a good idea to eat a diet full of fresh fruit and veg, lean protein, complex carbs and healthy fats, but it's OK to eat the so-called 'bad food' every now and then. In fact, there's no such thing as a bad food, only a bad diet. Consistently eating a diet full of high fat/sugar/salt foods is going to do nothing for your health, so while it IS possible to lose weight eating these foods, I don't recommend it.

It's all about taking baby steps, and introducing small habits that you can implement over time that will lead to long-term, sustainable weight-loss, and this is what my upcoming online coaching program is all about.
