Previously, we have talked about how Calories are the determining factor in weight-loss .
If Calories and energy are so important, then why do you see diets that don’t talk about Calories at all, like low-carb and the paleo diet? They all seem to work for some people, how come? This is an excellent question. We will analyze seven popular diets and explain how each of them can work for people looking to lose weight.
The Low-fat diet
The Low-Carb diet
The Keto diet
The Paleo diet
Alternate day fasting
Take home message
Many popular diets work, all the for the same reason: They consistently put you in a Calorie-deficit. There is nothing magical about ____ diet, it is just a different method of achieving the same Calorie-deficit. The best diet or plan is the one that works for you and your lifestyle. A low-carb diet won't work if you cannot live without bread. Typical intermittent fasting won't work if you have to have meds in the morning that need to be consumed with food. You need a diet that's made specifically for you.
