Choosing the Right Diet for You

It's just days into the new year, and many people have a goal to lose weight during 2013. But what works for most people?
 
"I eat healthy, it keeps me going, and at my age, it's what I do," said Josephine Taylor of Mill Creek.
 
"I have trouble keeping weight on, so I have to eat fattening foods," said Marshall Tracy of Pocahontas County. "My wife has trouble with weight, so she has to stay on a diet."

A key factor is finding a diet plan that works with your lifestyle, something that will motivate you to continue with it.
 
Now, of course, what works for one person, may not work for everyone, some people like to diet alone, others like to be more social about dieting for support. One of the best things to remember is simply eating healthy can make a huge difference.
 
"I always tell patients all the time that diets aren't really good for the long term, unless it really changes how you eat on the long scale," said Ashley Bainbridge, a 3rd year resident of UHC Family Medicine.

Fad diets are always popular, but they're not as effective as you might think. Diets often get contradicted down the road, and another one becomes the new "it" diet. So, find a plan that works for you, and stick to it, rather than changing up methods.
 
"Maybe with a New Year's resolution, maybe a week or two and they'll go off it," said Tracy.
 
"Yes, I have tried different things, but it doesn't work for me. I just don't lose any weight. I eat very little, but I don't lose any weight," said Taylor.
 
When in doubt, just stick to eating lean meats, lots of fruits and vegetables, and limit your fat intake.
 
"Exercise and diet, and by diet I mean keeping with healthy foods, and watching portions small. Exercising as much as possible is really the best way to go," said Bainbridge.
