If you are besieged by the latest fad diet or celebrity endorsed way of eating, perhaps it is best to look at the diet plan which has proved safe and effective for years!
Aside from the most important technique - prevention of weight gain and obesity in the first place - fat loss should take into consideration the following guidelines.
Make sure you feel comfortably satisfied during a diet. Often the worst part of a diet is the perceived deprivation that you are sure you have to face and the rumbles of protest from your empty stomach. If you add fiber to your diet, control your blood sugar levels by eating regular small meals per day and stick to low glycemic foods you don't have to "starve yourself" to diet effectively.
If your food tastes good and provides variety in flavor, smell and texture, you'll be more inclined to stick to your diet plan and actually enjoy the food you eat whilst dieting.
Of course, you must reduce your calorie intake so that you are losing weight, but only enough so that you are losing a healthy pound or two per week approximately. You'll also find fat loss easier if you take some exercise daily, which will help by keeping your metabolism elevated and stop the starvation response that often occurs in dieters who restrict calories but remain sedentary.
Before beginning any weight loss plan or diet, have a thorough checkup from your doctor and if possible try and review your progress with your doctor during your weight loss period. It is also a good safeguard to take a nutritional supplement, such as a vitamin and mineral formula, because restricting food intake often leads to a deficiency in many essential nutrients. If you are exercising regularly for the first time a supplement can help to support this new level of activity and demand on your bodily processes as well.
The most important factor in any healthy diet plan is to ensure that the program is convenient for you and fits in with your lifestyle. Any regime that is enforced or a chore to follow will be too disruptive and likely not to be followed.
Make sure your diet plan is cost effective and works within your budget. Make sure it can be followed for literally your lifetime - it must become part of your lifestyle - and you will be rewarded with a healthy fat free body for life.
