7 FORGET THE CRAZY FAD DIETS
Nutritionist Teresa Boyce (thehealthwhisperer.com.au) dishes her advice on the three most-asked questions about kilo-shedding.
I’m confused – do I try paleo, detoxing, quitting sugar or juice cleansing? Help!
Don’t get caught up in fad approaches. Clear the confusion by taking a step back and looking at a wellness approach that suits your body type, goals and lifestyle. A nutritionist or dietitian can help you figure this out. The truth is there’s no blanket approach to weight loss.
I always ace healthy eating for a day or two, but then fall off the wagon. Why?
People need accountability and support in reaching a goal. Whether you get these things from a nutritionist, an online support group or a friend, locking in regular sessions will provide you with vital support and encouragement while keeping you on track.
How much should I eat to lose weight but also have the energy to work out?
There’s a fine line between eating enough to support energy and muscle recovery, and eating to also drop body fat. Ditch the kilojoule counting and focus on portion control, whole foods, lots of vegetables, quality protein, healthy fats and making your own meals. Weight loss will be a by-product if you’re also burning energy at the gym.
