Weight loss diet plans can be a very beneficial process for people who are looking to lose bodyweight healthily and sustainably. As the health and wellbeing industry continues to grow, so does the number of plans for losing body fat. Every day, it seems, there is a new trend or fad that 'guarantees' results. These of course should all be taken with a pinch of salt. The right diet plan is the one that is best for you, your lifestyle, and your health.
You shouldn't just jump on board with a diet fad and assume it's going to work, because, they'll either not deliver the unrealistic expectations you promised, or they'll affect your mental health. The latter of which should be paramount above any desire to lose weight.
That's not to say that there aren't genuinely good diet plans out there, because there is. And, in today's blog, we're going to be looking at a handful of them that aren't fads or gimmicks, but real-life choices that can help inhibit sustainable weight loss over a long period. None of these is going to see you drop a jean size overnight, and that's a good thing! A proper weight loss plan should take a good deal of time.
At Diets 2 Go, we're passionate about helping people gradually lose weight with our delicious meal prep service. Offering healthy foods that do not sacrifice flavour (you won't find boiled chicken and rice on our menus), we're confident we have the meals to help you come good on your weight loss plan. To see what meal prep plans we have, head over to our dedicated page.
In the meantime, check out some programmes that could be ideal for you, and help you achieve your weight loss goals.
5 Diets That Could Potentially Be Suitable For You
We must say from the outset that before you start any diet, do consult with your doctor and, or, a medical professional. Everyone is different and may have health conditions. Therefore, we'll all react differently to different plans, so it's important to have that chat before embarking on anything significant. That said, we've picked out the following because they are broad, open to everyone, and not overly expensive to maintain for long periods, which is essential if you have a long term goal.
If you regularly have a busy week and are worried about not being able to achieve your goal weight in a sensible amount of time - why not check out our meal prep plans? We have plans for all budgets that include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. We also cater to people with different dietary requirements and are proud to cater for everyone.
What follows are some that we'd recommend.
In a nutshell, a keto diet plan is about getting your body to reach a metabolic state called ketosis which is where fat is burned from your body, for energy. It involves eating more proteins and vegetables and is an effective way of burning fat. Meat, cheese, and vegetables that grow above the ground are just three food types that make up a Keto diet.
People who have diabetes, high blood pressure, and breastfeed should NOT do a ketogenic diet. For those that are not in those categories, and want to start this diet, its health benefits can be positive over time, as long as foods such as pasta, bread, and rice are avoided.

Low-Carb Diet (similar to an Atkins Diet)
This kind of diet is pretty self-explanatory. Essentially, the theory is that to reduce body mass, you reduce the number of carbohydrates that you consume. It is a very simple and effective diet (for the right people), and we have plenty of low-carb meals at Diets 2 Go. For this diet, there are lots of foods you can eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. These include eggs, salmon, high-fat dairy products (cheese, butter, etc), olive oil, and virtually all types of meat.
This simplicity, and the fact it doesn't require too much of a lifestyle change, makes it very popular. And, as long as you avoid starchy vegetables, sugar, and trans fats you can expect to be successful over time.

For those with heart conditions, or at a higher risk of stroke, a plant-based diet could be a good option. By now, you're probably aware of what a vegan diet is made up of - everything except animal products, including eggs and dairy. While a lot of people do this for ethical reasons, from a dietary perspective, there is evidence to suggest that they are good for effective weight loss.
There is arguably less of a need to track calories with vegan programmes because of the types of food you're consuming.

The DASH programme is ideal for people that have conditions such as high blood pressure. Good nutrition is essential for everyone, but even more so for people with these health conditions because it can go on to cause heart disease and kidney failure.
Standing for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, DASH focuses on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and lean meats. Rather than specific foods, DASH focuses on different food groups such as whole grains, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Avoiding salt is a key part of the DASH programme too.

If In Doubt, Opt For A Balanced Diet
If you're ever unsure about the range of programmes out there, just opt for a healthy, balanced one. A balanced diet that has a good amount of vegetables, fruit, and meat will go a long way to helping you feel fitter, healthier, and happier.
Regardless of whether you want to lose weight or not, we should all be aiming to eat a balanced amount of produce from all the food groups. With the occasional treat of course, after all, it is balanced for a reason!
At Diets 2 Go, balance is at the heart of all our meals and while we cater to all types of diets and preferences, our chefs work hard to ensure that there are just the right amount of ingredients in each meal.
