Since starting this page, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the subject of what is a healthy lifestyle. If you are doing the same as me, you’ve seen the massive over-load of very contradicting expert sources. One weight-loss guru will say avoid following any rule based diets, then the next guru tells you about his amazing new dieting plan that you should follow to lose 30 pounds in just a short period of time. What these guys don’t want you to know is that they are making bank when they provide you with this information, true or false. So instead of reading all the “proof” they have backing their diets, it’s best to just try it out. You can spend hours researching what diet is best and in the end, all you find is an endless hole of constant arguments between the promoters of these diets.
So here’s my plan. I’m simply going to pick a random diet, take it seriously, and tell you about the results. I will take measurements of my body and posts weekly updates. This way, if you are stuck on what diet to chose from, you can see what works and what doesn’t!
A quick search brings thousands of different options to the table. You could go with Atkins, 80/10/10, the 4 day diet and so many others that you can’t know whats going to work unless you actually try them out. As far as I’m concerned, diets are like shoes. They will fulfil their intended purpose, you just need to pick the one best suited for your style.
Most of the time, these diets are successfully promoted because they actually helped people lose weight. Atkins would not have the name recognition it has today unless it actually helped people. So I’m not going to break my back trying to find a diet to follow, I’m simply going to put one to the test. I found quite a long list here. Sifting through it quickly I found this diet to be the one I am most confident in being able to follow.
I chose the caveman diet because of it’s simplicity. Look it up real quick and you’ll find tons of information supporting it’s claims. Though, common sense says it’s really impossible to have the diet they had in Palaeolithic times, but we have enough good food around to get as close as possible to a true caveman diet.
