The Right Diet For You
There is no one-size-fits-all diet, so we share information on several diet plans found to be healthy and effective. Choosing the proper short-term weight-loss and long-term maintenance diet plan is highly personal. Each body has unique micronutrient needs and each diet affects different bodies differently. (Psssst! The better your food choices taste, the greater your conviction to stick with your diet plan!)
Perhaps the most important factor in the success of any of these diet plans is your conviction to stick with it. If you don’t like the food, you probably won’t stick with it.
