3 Reasons to Forget Fad Diets

Forget Fad Diets

It’s time to forget fad diets and focus on health. If you are trying to eat healthier, you have probably encountered the many restrictive diets sold by writers, bloggers and Instagram. With so much conflicting advice, it is easy to become confused. Instead, try focusing on a life-long healthy eating pattern that will set you up for long-term success.

3 Reasons to Forget Fad Diets

  1. Patterns Create Change. One meal does not mean success or failure. What you eat most of the time is more important. Fill up on fruits and veggies- produce should make up about half of your plate. Focus on whole grains, beans, seafood and nuts for the rest of your meals.
  2. Foods to Enjoy in Moderation. Eat less red and processed meats, sweetened drinks, desserts and processed grains. You do not have to entirely limit these foods, but making them an occasional indulgence in an otherwise healthy diet will set you up for success. Added sugars should make up no more than 10 percent of your diet.
  3. Consult our Health Coach, Dr. Karen. It can be difficult to figure out a diet that works well for your lifestyle, budget and individual needs. Consider meeting with Dr. Karen, especially if you have concerns about restricting certain foods or are on a special diet. Dr. Karen can help you wade through the sea of diet information, and instead find a healthy eating pattern for life.
