There are many different types of diets on the market, such as Atkins diet, the Paleo, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc. It is important to remember that a diet limits food portions to a very small size or excludes certain foods entirely to promote weight loss. Unfortunately, this may not be effective over the long term. It is much easier to maintain a diet that takes into account the foods that you like, dislike, and also include combinations of foods with enough calories and nutrients that promotes good health.

Types of Diets:

Fixed-Menu Diet – Provides a list of all the foods you will eat; easy to follow diet, but you get very few different food choices; Boring and hard to follow when you are away from home

Exchange-Type Diet – A meal plan with a set number of servings from each of several food groups; Within each food group, foods are about equal in calories and can be interchanged as you wish; You will have more day to day variety and you can easily follow the diet when you are away from home

Prepackaged-Meal Diet – Require you to buy prepackaged meals; These meals will help you learn portion sizes, but can be very expensive

Formula Diet – Weight loss plans that replace one or more meals with a liquid formula; This diet is easy to use and follow, but most people regain the weight as soon as they stop using the formula

Questionable Diets – You should avoid any diet that suggests you eat a certain nutrient, food, or combination of foods to promote easy weight loss; Some of these diets may work in the short term because they are low in calories; Often times, these diets are not well balanced and may cause nutrient deficiencies

As you can see, there are so many factors involved in choosing the right diet. The most important factor is to choose an eating plan that you can live with. The plan should also teach you how to select and prepare healthy foods, as well as how to maintain your new healthy weight. Remember, people tend to regain lost weight so focus on eating a healthy and nutritious diet to maintain your new weight, combined with regular physical exercise which helps to prevent weight gain.
