How To Select The Right Diet For You

By Phil Graham


In Summary

- Appropriate calorific intake (the major determinant of weight loss and muscle gain)

- Essential Nutrients (fats, protein and micronutrients)

- Food likes and dislikes (your hardly going to stick to a program of food you don’t like – one sure way to encourage binge eating)

- Metabolic abnormalities (underlying medical conditions etc)

- Flexibility and diet breaks – Realize, you won’t be able to stick to your program 100% day in day out. There will be times when things will slip. Don’t stress, such is life. Having the right plan in place that allows you to compensate and get on with things effortlessly is crucial.

- Ask yourself one question: How long can I stick to my current diet & training program?

If you sighed deep down inside and answered: I don’t know, until the holidays are over, 6 weeks, 18 weeks or after the wedding.

You really don’t need me to state the obvious – What your doing isn’t sustainable, your results aren’t going to be sustainable – its time for change!
