Starting, stopping and jumping between diets has become a nationwide phenomenon in a constant effort to lose weight. Dozens of differently named diets boasting new techniques and methods promise rapid results but the bottom line is that it doesn’t matter how you diet, just as long as you stick to it. A recent review of 48 randomized weight loss trials showed that all popular diets cause weight loss because they cut down on overall calorie count, and not because of any unique aspects of each diet. All of the different types of diets produced similar results. Therefore, the best diet for you is really the one that you think you can stick to over an extended period of time.
