How to Find the Right Diet Plan and Stick to it?


It’s a fact of life… women seem to be always dieting! Whether it’s for a wedding, after having a baby, or getting ready for swimsuit season, it seems we just really aren’t very happy with the way our body looks!

You also may choose to diet for health reasons – someone who has just discovered they have diabetes, for example, may have to go on a sugar free diet, while another individual has to start living a gluten free lifestyle.

There are all sorts of diet plans, and what works for one person doesn’t always work for another. So how do you find the right one for you?

If you do a search for “best diet plans for women” using googles search engine, you come up with over 93,000 results. If you have tried diet after diet, hoping for that magical fix that would produce the perfect figure, a healthy feeling, and an energy level you haven’t seen for years, you know it just doesn’t work very well. The big question is WHY?

The answer is really quite simple. Going on a diet is almost always a certain way to guarantee failure when you’re trying to lose weight or improve your health. The word “diet” has a very negative connotation. It is associated with denial of pleasure, high costs, calorie and carb counting, and foods that we really don’t like!

We try vegetarian diets, water diets, liquid diets, limited calorie diets, carb counting diets; we buy frozen TV dinner diets that have little or no taste…all in the name of good health.

The best diet plan is one that you can stick to, and that means a diet that doesn’t leave you feeling deprived. It means a lifestyle change, and not some miracle diet. Sure, you might lose some weight on a liquid diet – who wouldn’t? But how long are you going to be willing to maintain that diet? And when you stop, you will most likely gain the weight back – and often more, since you have been denying yourself the foods you crave.

Diet plans need to include controlled portions of the foods that you normally eat. Adding more fresh fruits and vegetable, as well as eight glasses of water a day, will help you ingest fewer calories, still leave you feeling full, and help with weight loss.

Losing weight can be a challenge, but when you go about it in a sensible manner rather than trying to follow a fad diet, you can be successful!

For now, we recommend you choose a diet plan from this selection at Women’s Fitness.

    Good one! Finding a diet you can actually stick to is so much more important than just following the plan that should give you the best results. The best results from a diet plan, detox program or workout routine is always the plan that you stick to — even when you don’t feel like it! Thanks Sophie, really good article!
