How to Choose a Diet that Works for You

One of the things that’s really great about the field of fitness and nutrition is that it’s ever evolving. There’s no one right way to accomplish anything really. There’s a million different ways to hit you weight loss, fat loss, muscle gaining goals, evidenced by the phenomenal amount of information that’s out there, and the phenomenal amount of results that people have gotten in different methodologies. You can be a vegetarian and be a body builder, and you body builder and you can be a ketogenic diet eating primarily fat and moderate protein and be a body builder, and by that same token as you can get remarkably lean doing the same things.

Now the problem I think that a lot of people have is, when they embark on a program, they try and fit into and conform to that said program, and what’s important o acknowledge is that you don’t have to always conform exclusively to one set program. As you need to take things from one thing that you know is going to work from you, and apply it, and if it works great, but if it doesn’t, don’t be afraid to move on to something else that may resonate a little bit more, or that you’re more willing to commit to and if you are committed to something, but it’s not helping you reach your goals, then it might also not be the right program for you.

Don’t try and fit into the standards of one set program, identify the program, the components of a program that seem to be working for you, and if they’re not working, then be okay dismissing them. The reason I bring this up is because I have a lot of people that come to me and say well, this person says I need to do this. For example this person says I need to eat seven times a day, in order to lean out, and have 30 grams of protein at every single meal. I’m like dude, you barely eat two times a day, is that even realistic for you? Well no, so why are we even having this conversation, and that’s my point.

Is take things that you know you’re willing to commit to, and be okay plugging them in and if you see things, if it’s part of a program, like I need to exercise five times a week, and right now I’m not doing any, that might not be the most realistic plan for you. You need to have some goals, but you also need to know what’s realistic for you to commit to, in order to accomplish those goals. I hope that’s helpful for you. For fun, go ahead and comment below and let me know some of the most ridiculous guidelines that someone has told you, you need to do, as part of a weight loss nutrition diet plan fitness plan, something like that. I’d love to hear what you guys have been subjected to, and then we can discuss. Thanks.
