Here’s how they work
For Weight Watchers, it’s about controlling portions through
a daily point allotment. For Atkins and South Beach, it’s about eating fewer
carbs. Other diets have you eating more fiber or watching fat intake. But no
matter how fancy the diet or involved the program, what it all boils down to is
eating fewer calories.
Who needs a one-size-fits-all diet plan when you can do it
yourself? We’re not saying some people don’t find diet plans helpful, but it’s
really about cutting out high-calorie habits. So think about where you can
scale back. Lots of sodas and juice drinks are loaded with calories. Same with
fast foods. Serving yourself a mondo portion packs calories. Do you only eat
fruit once a week? Do you add extra cheese or butter to everything? Instead of
following a rigid plan, substitute an unhealthful habit for a better one. Stick
to water and skim milk. If you always eat cookies and candy, go for nuts and
fruit instead. Eat smaller portions, and add veggies.
