Diets are important! Without a diet you may just eat everything you want then that can cause health issues in the future. Lets talk a little about diets. We are going to start with definitions:
Diet – a special course of food to which one restricts oneself, either to lose weight or for medical reasons.
Calories – A calorie is a unit that is used to measure energy. The Calorie you see on a food package is actually a kilocalorie, or 1,000 calories.
Maintain – keep (something) at the same level or rate.
Now that we got those our of the way we are going to explain what a diet is:
A diet is where you modify what you eat to meet a goal like losing weight or staying healthy. It is also important to keep moving by doing exercise during a diet to stay healthy.
Should you eat a pre-made diet?
It depends because you can have a pre-made diet but there may be risks for your body. Some diets may include foods that your body is not able to eat if you have food allergies. Though some may be completely fine for one person to eat
Choose a diet for you!
You should choose foods that have a healthy balance in nutrients and calories.
There are also other things you should keep in mind when choosing a diet some include, your past diets, your food preferences, your budget ($), health conditions.
In your diet you want a mix of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, protein, etc.
What is a diet/food app?
There are many apps that have diet programs built into them but it also depends on who you are and if you wish to try and log all your food into an app. Most apps also require payment subscriptions to unlock their programs and it may not be an option for some people. Though you can always have a diet without an app.
Is a diet a good idea?
It depends. If you feel like you want to achieve a goal in weight, have a medication that requires only certain foods or just are very conscious
How can I maintain a diet?
- Have weekly goals – A REWARD!
- Keep tempting food away
- Tell your friends about your diet so they don’t eat foods in front of you that can cause you to break the diet.
- Make sure you feel happy, keep reminding yourself about what’s at the end of the diet. (Your goals)
Do what feels right for you, you want to worry about keeping your body healthy and not about what other people think.
