If you want lasting results, make as few changes to the way you eat as possible. Nope. That wasn’t a typo. Make as FEW changes as possible. Daily, you are bombarded with claims that one eating style or the other is THE way to lose weight. The truth is that the most effective way to eat is the way that you will actually follow.
You eat the way you do right now for a reason. Your eating style is driven by convenience, taste, or even budget. While completely overhauling your eating style to get results may seem like the way to go, overhauls rarely last. When your new diet collides with your schedule, your preferences, or your budget, it rarely survives. You go right back to your old way of eating because that is what comes naturally for you. And, any weight that you had lost finds you again.
