Want to know about the best fad diets? Curious about diets that actually work and fad diets that work fast? Read on! You may be surprised by this information about top fad diets.
I have to confess something.
The headline of this post, "What are the best fad diets?" is a trick question. Simply put, there are no best fad diets. When it comes to losing weight and keeping it off, your best bet is
adopting lasting lifestyle changes.
I know this may not be what you want to hear. But my job isn't to gloss over the science and lie to you. My job is to help you get healthier in a way that's going to make you feel good and that's going to last.
This is why I'm sharing with you today how to lose weight and keep it off, including superfood trends actually worth following. I'm also going to tell you about some horrible fad diets that I'd love for you to skip. Ready? Let's get started.
Nutritionists Say This is the Worst Diet
Before we get into the diet advice you should follow, I'm going to tell you about the advice you should absolutely ignore. As a bride to be, I've been immersed in all things wedding lately. So some pretty scary weight-loss tactics mentioned in online bride groups got me very concerned, and that's why I wrote this article for Food Network. Many of these strategies can put your health at risk, which is the opposite of what you're looking to accomplish with a weight-loss plan. While this post is wedding focused, the advice on weight-loss tips to skip applies to everyone!
Healthiest, High-Fat Foods You Should be Eating
When people ask me how to lose weight and keep it off, my answer is pretty simple: Eat a diet rich in lean proteins, healthy fats, veggies, fruit, and whole grains. It sounds pretty simple, right? Many folks are afraid of eating fatty foods, but the fact is they're good for you (when eaten in moderation!). And the fats they contain actually help you absorb other important nutrients. This is why I put together this Reader's Digest list of the healthiest high-fat foods out there, including info on portion control. Learn about seeds for weight loss, too.
Amy's Recipe of
the Week: Mango Overnight Oats
Are oats good for weight loss? Yup! Just a second ago, I mentioned how important it is to eat a balance of healthy food groups. This overnight oats recipe provides exactly that balance. You get protein from the Greek yogurt; fiber from the oats, mango, and bananas; and healthy fat from the almonds. All three of these nutrients help you feel fuller for longer, which helps you cut down on unnecessary snacking! Love overnight oat recipes? Also try pistachio high-protein overnight oats.
