There is no way of eating that will work for every single person because you have to find what works for you.
Every single diet can be considered a fad in that someone at some point tried it because they read about it in a magazine or heard about it from a friend or family member who was having great results.
Now please don’t get me wrong. I am not putting down or making fun of any of these ways of eating AT ALL. So if something on the list below is working for you, that’s fantastic!! Keep doing it.
What I AM saying is that if something on this list doesn’t work for you, it’s not because there’s something wrong with you. It’s because the DIET is not right for you.
If you really like potatoes, probably don’t try keto. If you really enjoy rice or chickpeas or dairy (and you’re not lactose intolerant), then Paleo isn’t a great option. And if you have a history of eating disorders then I definitely wouldn’t try the Whole30 program no matter how amazing you might feel after it’s over.
After trying to eat a certain way for many years I can say from experience that any way of eating that restricts foods you like isn’t the right way of eating for *you*. In order for a diet (what you eat) to be sustainable you need to LIKE what you eat. If you don’t like what you eat, you’re not going to be able to eat that way for very long. And if even if you do reach your goals on it, it’s going to be kinda hard to maintain the results if you go right back to eating how you used to eat before.
