The Shrinkinguy Diet
People often ask me how I eat and what diet do I follow. First of all, there is no Shrinkinguy Diet. I reject the word diet. On one had it just means the particular food plan you follow, but on the other there is a connotation of a temporary change in the way you eat in order to achieve some specific short-term results. Like "I need to lose a few pounds in order to fit into this dress," so a woman might drastically change the way she eats for a few weeks in order to quickly accomplish that goal. Yes, the goal might be achieved, but not in a sustainable manner. The woman has no intention of living like that forever, and chances are it wouldn't be healthy to live that way anyway. That's the opposite of healthy weight loss.
If the changes you make aren't permanent, then the results you achieve won't be either. Isn't the overall objective to lose and keep the weight off? You need to lose the weight in a manner that you feel comfortable doing for the rest of your life. In addition to the Mayo Clinic principles above, here are some guidelines for eating that I use for myself and encourage others to follow:
There are more tips and advice I could give, but these are some good basic ones. Keeping these principles in mind you'll achieve the weight loss success you seek.
