They say the word diet contains the word “die”. And this may be one reason no one likes to diet. It is a boring and tasteless process that leaves you exhausted and craving all the delicious junk food in the world. It is a fact that the body has a set point.  

Thus if you tinker with the food supply by as much as a few slices of bread per day, your body will have you eat a whole pizza later on to compensate for the deficit. So the right method of eating to lose weight is not to forgo any one nutritious element but to eat everything in moderation. 

If there are any diets that actually work in real life, they can be counted on the fingertips. The Atkins Diet which stresses on the consumption of high quality proteins and fats and the elimination of refined carbohydrates has some truth to it. Then the Mediterranean diet where you enjoy citrus fruits, lean meats, olive oil, whole grains and vegetables is another path that leads to weight loss.

Arthur Agatston’s South Beach Diet has a lot of wisdom to it, but you won’t be able to follow it for long. Dining on fish, chicken, lentils, beans, leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds as well as good fats in the form of extra virgin olive oil is a sure fat-burning formula. 

Meanwhile, the Slow Carb Diet popularized by Timothy Ferris bans all white refined carbohydrates such as flour, rice and sugar. But the problem is it also cuts out all fruits and dairy products. However, you get to eat all you want once per week.

The thing is that while these stratagems may work for a while ultimately everyone down to the last man and woman will revert to his or her original style of eating. So the most sensible methodology is to eat everything that you were enjoying previously but to divide it up into portions. 

Thus if you were eating three meals a day why not divide each one so that you will be eating six mini meals per day instead. It is overeating that causes obesity. Moderate the fats and the carbohydrates and keep the proteins high. And drink tons of water but not with meals since it interferes with proper digestion. 

Recognize when you are satisfied and stop eating at that crucial stage. Most of all eat slowly, enjoying each bite, and thoroughly chew your food. That is the only sane style of losing the pounds for good. All the rest is mere commentary and will only make your goals more complicated.
