Good Health comes with a healthy weight, neither too more nor too less. The Key to healthy weight is what we eat and how much we eat along with moderate to high exercise.In recent years, there has been a proliferation of fad diets which are sold as low fat diets and the best way to lose weight. Enough research evidence exists that low fat diets don’t work as these replace fat with easily digested carbs.They try to restrict select nutrients from our daily intake, which results in short term weight loss which ultimately leads to nutrient deficiency .

Hundreds of diets have been created, many promising fast and permanent weight loss. Remember the Atkins diet? The grapefruit diet? 3 day water diet? Low carb.. Blood type diet.. and various celebrity diets?
Fact is that any diet will work which gives us fewer calories than what we intake.
The best diet for losing weight is one that is good for all parts of your body, from your brain to your toes, and not just for our waistline. It should also be one which we can manage for a longer period of time without too much issues. Ideally a good diet plan is one that offers plenty of good to taste and healthy choices, excludes only few foods, and is easy on wallet and availability.
The Most common diet that fits the above bill is a Mediterranean-type diet.
Mediterranean diet and its variations which typically consists of
· Several servings of fruits and vegetables a day
· Whole-grain breads and cereals
· Healthy fats from nuts, seeds, and olive oil
· Lean protein from poultry, fish, and beans
· Limited amounts of red meat
· Moderate wine consumption with meals .

    1. Intermittent fasting is a way of life. It should be opted as lifestyle and not as a temporary diet. One must do it carefully while keeping a close observation on their body and its reaction to a change in lifestyle.
