What is a good diet for me

Question: I have to lose a lot of weight (about 50 pounds) fast. What would the best diet or weight loss plan be for me?

Answer: The right diet for you really depends on your personal tastes and lifestyle. If you chose a diet that is well-suited to your taste in food and your lifestyle; it will be so much easier to stick to it and it will really enhance your chances of success. A healthy diet is one that becomes a new way of eating, so the weight you do lose can stay off permanently. A recent scientific study on choosing a diet suggested that; as long as you choose a healthy and well balanced diet, the actual mix of protein, carbs, and fats is not that important. It is far more important that you are able to stick to the plan and make a permanent lifestyle change.

For example; if you love red meat the Atkins Diet may be the best weight loss plan for you, while the Mediterranean Diet may be just the one if you love fish. Of course, if cooking is your pet hate, something like NutriSystem may offer a better fit to your lifestyle. If you are the type of person that needs more structure and support, Weight Watchers offers a proven approach and support network.

So take your time and choose your diet carefully considering everything you’ve learned from your past weight loss experiences. Whichever one you choose, break that 60 lbs down into mini-goals and celebrate the achievement of each; then the whole weight loss journey will not seem quite so daunting. There is nothing that motivates like success.

And if your first diet choice turned out to be the wrong choice, try something else until you find a weight loss plan that works for you.
