A friend of mine wants to lose weight and recently started a new diet. For this diet, she only ate blended up fruits and vegetables and one or two granola bars per day. She』s very excited because she』s already lost 5 kilos, but I』m a little skeptical. I don』t think this diet is very healthy. There are a lot of fad diets like this one. They are often extreme and are popular only for a short time. And these diets almost never work. That』s because you can』t eat blended up fruits and vegetables forever! It』s just not sustainable. It』s also not very balanced. This diet doesn』t give your body everything it needs. Sure it may have plenty of vitamins and minerals, but it doesn』t have much protein or fat.
If you really want to lose weight, you need to make small changes in your lifestyle and your eating habits. It』s important to eat consistently throughout the day. That means three meals and probably some snacks. Your meals should have lots of vegetables, some grains, and lean proteins like chicken. You should cook with oil and not butter. You shouldn』t eat too much sugar and you should avoid junk food like chips. Instead of junk food, maybe you could have some fruit.
Making small changes to balance your diet will lead to a much healthier diet than most fad diets. People like fad diets because they want fast results, but small changes will keep you healthier for longer.
