Finding the Best Diet Plan

Amazon Disclaimer

The new year has begun and a lot of people are trying to find the best diet plan that they can actually stick to throughout the year and lose the weight they so desperately have been trying to shed in the past.

When searching for the best diet plan it can be overwhelming because there are so many options and even more claims that this one or that one is the quickest way to lose weight. Instead of setting yourself up for failure, doing a little research and finding the best diet plan that will actually work for you is worth the effort.

Find the Best Diet Plan & Lose the Weight For Good

It seems like everyday there is a new infomercial or ad for a diet that is guaranteed to make you lose weight faster than ever before or easier than any other diet. I have even heard of some diets that claim to change the way your body processes foods and you can lose weight with just one simple change.

This is not true at all! If you are overweight chances are you need to make a complete overhaul of the way you eat and how you see foods in general.

The average person has no idea what is actually healthy anymore due to the constant claims by big companies that their products are made with whole ingredients, fat free, low calorie, sugar free, and many other phrases they slap on a label to fool consumers into thinking they are making a smart choice. Most of these claims are not only false but they are there to distract you from what else has been put into the products, learn more about secret ingredients not listed on the food label here.

Finding the Best Diet Plan

The best way to know what is actually in the foods we eat is to only eat foods without a label. Unfortunately that truly is the only way to know for sure what you and your family are consuming.

When trying to find the best diet plan, healthy eating should be the most important factor and it is also the quickest way to lose weight.

A few diets that incorporate healthy, real foods into your weightloss journey are:

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, this is my personal favorite because it has helped me heal as well as many others with a variety of illnesses as well as lose weight fast. I didn’t start the diet out trying to lose weight, that was a pleasant side effect in my journey of getting healthy after the diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis. You can pick up the book Breaking the Vicious Cycle and get started losing weight immediately after implementing the diet plan.

Another diet that has helped many heal themselves from disease without poisonous medicines is the The Paleo Diet
This diet has also helped many lose weight and incorporates real food that doesn’t come in a package.

Lose the Weight

I like both of these diets because portion control has never been my thing. On SCD (the Specific Carbohydrate Diet) I can eat whatever I want within the diet at anytime I want without any measuring, ever! That is a great thing for those of us with a large appetite and very little patience. At certain points in the diet, I was eating ice cream for breakfast, cookies for lunch, pizza for dinner, and still losing weight!

Some people do great with portion control and if that sounds like you than the 21 Day Fix may be the diet you are looking for.

A few diets that seemed to be popular lately that may be worth looking into are The Whole30, The Negative Calorie Diet, and 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. These are all great options if you want to shed a few pounds and incorporate more healthy foods into your diet.

Best Diet Plan

While choosing which diet plan will work for you keep in mind that any lifestyle change is going to be hard to adjust to but if you really commit yourself, eating healthy will become your new normal.

    I am looking forward to getting back on track this year. I have been eating like crap lately and need to get back to working out.

  2. Diet plans don’t work for me, so I just exercise a lot and cut back on my intake. This is great information, though.

  3. I started back on counting calories in the fall, and I’m going to continue with that. It’s the only thing that works for me! I use Sparkpeople.com, and it does wonders for me. Just seeing a log of what I’m eating everyday is motivation for me to cut back, no exercise needed!

  4. I am trying to figure this out for myself. I have gained weight this year and I really don’t like him so I need to figure out a way to eat healthier.

  5. I’m always trying to lose weight. Emphasis on trying. I love that you listed out some different weight loss options here.

    Hola Senorita Supermom, those are some fine looking naranjos y platanos you got there ese! Where do you get your produce from, I haven’t seen fruit like that since I left Tiajuana!

  7. This is really helpful. I’ve been hearing lots about the paleo diet and the 21 Day Fix. It seems like people can get great results with both.

  8. I’m big on low carb / sugar free / keto style lifestyle. It helps me with a lot of illnesses which I suffer from. I need to get back on track so I can drop some weight this year.

  9. Dieting and eating in general is really hard!! So many conflicting circumstances!! I think you are right! Eating things without labels is probably the best way to eat!

  10. I definitely stand by eating healthy and whole. I haven’t completed the Whole30, but really really want to sometime this year! I am mainly Paleo, and feel so much better when I am eating healthy!

  11. These are excellent points for dieting. So many people focus on losing weight and dieting in the new year. It is good to do research beforehand so you can figure out what works best for you!

  12. Thanks for listing these, I am doing my research to incorporate the best ones for my husband and I.
    I’ve never been able to follow through on a diet plan for more than a few days, I blame my will power to eat when we are not home. This year we have set up an eating out schedule of Saturdays only, to try and follow through with a better eating routine.

  13. The Paleo Diet is pretty popular. I’ve tried several diet plans over the years I may have not achieved my desired weight yet but I try to eat healthy and clean.

  14. I’m trying to eat healthier this year. It’s one of my goals or resolutions. I’ve already started and I hope it’s going to be a success. 🙂

  15. I’m one of those stuck in the vicious cycle. I buckle down and get serious … lose a lot of weight … and then eventually just gain it all back. I’ve recently lost 15 pounds, which is just a fraction of what I need to lose, but I’m proud that – even though I’ve stopped losing – I have kept those 15 off!

  16. I love the way you reviewed all of the different diets.

    My husband and I both got quite lazy last year in regard to watching what we ate, and we need to find a plan that works well for both of us. I clicked on your link for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and I will give it a read through.

  17. I thrive on a pescetarian diet. But man is it hard in the house of men that demand their chicken and beef!

  18. I have never really followed a diet…I just eat clean and eat what makes me feel good. Which means, no dairy, gluten, or meat for me!

  19. Bonnie+@wemake7 says:

    I’m looking to lose a mad amount of weight but not dieting this time. I’m doing my own thing and it’s working.

  20. I gained 5 pounds over the holiday so incorporating veggies and nuts in my diet is what I am doing. Thanks for introduccing these diets to us.

  21. I need to make my cousin read this post. She has been trying to lose weight for a long time now but she just cant find a good plan to try.

  22. CourtneyLynne says:

    Diets come and go, but a healthy lifestyle will last forever 😉 wish more people realized if they made afew lifestyle changes they can change there waistline 😉

  23. 15 pounds! Bravo! I just got back into the gym and it feels amazing. I don’t know if I lost anything but I’m hoping once I fit in my dream bikini and don’t look like a suasage, I have surely achieved my goal lol.

  24. I try to eat clean, unprocessed food at least 90% of the time. That has worked really well for me, along with regular exercise.

  25. I’m horrible at living by rules so diets don’t work for me. I will share these with my mom who is great at sticking with them.

  26. What you eat makes such a difference – I have loved seeing a nutritionist it has been so helpful!
