The best diet you can recommend from your own experiences?
There's so many of them, I can't decide which one should I start to lose 5 kg/11lbs?
I started a lower carb diet back on February 10th and to date I've lost 17 pounds. I cut out rice, white potatoes, pasta, and breads. I also cut back on my sugar intake and have to say that this is one of the more successful diets I've tried. Every once in awhile I will have whole wheat pasta, but when I do I eat a much smaller portion than what I used to.
That is not much weight to lose (says me because I deal with food addicts who usually have suffered with a lot of weight over a long period of time), so it really depends on how fast you want to lose it.
You could try a detox or a fast (by fast I mean having freshly squeezed juices only for a few days). This route may give you unpleasant but temporary symptoms but is healthy for the body and works fast.
Otherwise, a diet per se is not really necessary. Just cut out the junk, exercise, and perhaps swop one meal a day for fruit.
You don't need a diet. Besides, its been shown that only 5% of all dieters actually lose their weight and keep it off, so rather just make a few changes.
If it was me, I would go on an all vegetable and fruit diet. That works wonders.
I recommend kimchi and yerba mate tea. Both speed up metabolism which is the secret to losing weight. Also, decrease sugar intake in all forms (sweeteners, soda pop, juices, candy, pastries, etc.)
I wish I didn't know what diets are good and bad. From my own experience the best diet is one of moderation. Simply make sure that your portions are appropriate size, don't eat unnecessary snacks and up your activity.
Figure out how many calories your body needs in a day just to maintain your weight right now, then cut that amount by 500 calories a day and increase your exercise and you should lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. 1 pound a week if you do not exercise.
I like the Paleo Diet which I wrote about here: http://blissfulwriter.hubpages.com/hub/ … ithic-diet
You eat lots of vegetables, meats, and healthy fats on this diet so that everything taste good. No restriction on calories. Just restrictions on type of food. You should not feel hungry on this diet.
The goal of the diet is to eat healthy and avoid anti-nutrients. It is more of the idea of getting healthy in order to lose weight, not losing weight in order to get healthy.
As a nutritionist, please don't do fad diets such as juice diets, low-carb diets, low-fat diets, extremely low calorie diets, or other fads. They will only get you into trouble in the long-run by lessening your thyroid function which decreases your metabolism. In the end, you only gain back your weight and sometimes more. It's best to stick to all natural foods (no pre-packaged, processed, or refined foods), and eating them in balance with a protein, carbohydrate, and fat source. Carbohydrates include vegetables, fruit, and starches. Try to include mostly greens and colorful veggies with most of your meals as they provide an alkaline pH level for your body which reduces inflammation and rids the body of toxins (including body fat). Limit your fruit to 2 servings per day, and only have your starches after a strenuous workout twice per week for fastest fat loss. You may check out my hubs to further assist you. Good luck!
