I'm trying to eat healthily but I'm struggling to stick to it. Are there any diet plans that could help keep me on track?
As you are probably all too aware there are literally hundreds of different diet plans out there. From Paleo to the 5:2 they offer different approaches to both weight loss and becoming a healthier person. Go online and you’ll even find tests designed to find out which regime will work best for you. The simple fact of the matter is there is no definitive right or wrong diet plan for you. And what is also important to remember is there is no ‘quick fix’.
We’d suggest that a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg, fibre and vitamins and minerals, along with lean protein and ‘good’ fats, is essential if you want to stick to healthy eating. So check that any diet plan you choose is providing these. When looking at the best diet plan for you ask yourself this simple question: Have I the time and the motivation to stick to it? If you regularly feel hungry, and as a result are tempted to eat unhealthy snacks, it’s likely your current attempts at healthy eating aren’t providing all the nutrients you need.
Remember, being healthy doesn’t necessarily mean small portions. So, if you want to be healthier, get fitter and watch your weight you have to work at it – it all about getting into a routine and learning good habits. Actions like keeping alcohol down to the minimum and fitting exercise into your weekly routine play a key role too.
