How to choose a healthy diet

Most diets, including low carbs diet plans are best approached with care, because although one may work for your best friend, it may not work for you. For those who have serious weight problems and also have pre-existing issues such hypoglycemia, the popular diets usually will not do the trick. People are all individuals therefore need eating plans that cater to individual needs. Having said that, it must be pointed out that there are some diets that will be beneficial for most of the population.

To assess which particular diet plan will be beneficial, you can follow the guidelines below.

  1. Diet offers sufficient balance and a variety of carbohydrates, protein and fats.
  2. Diet does not exclude one particular food group, and encourage excessive consumption of another.
  3. Diet encourages exercise to complement sensible eating habits.
  4. Diet encourages awareness of portion sizes.
  5. Diet does not encourage unrealistic quick weight loss.
  6. Diet is backed up with medical research data.

These points are very much common sense, and provide a good framework which many nutrition professionals would broadly follow.
