Find out why diets designed for anyone and everyone might not work for you.
When it comes to weight loss plans, one size does not fit all. The government issues guidelines for healthy eating, and a seemingly infinite number of weight-loss plans can be found online and on the shelves of your favorite bookstore. But our bodies are as unique as we are, causing us to gain and lose weight for reasons specific to us individually.
Plan to Succeed at Losing Weight
Of course, weight gain has many causes. Stress and other issues can contribute to emotional eating. Poor planning and busy schedules can result in bad food choices. A personalized meal plan can help you prepare for whatever comes your way during the week and avoid potential weight-loss roadblocks.
Meal Plans for Individual Needs
Customizing your routine is the key to success. After all, no two bodies are alike, so why should our eating habits be the same? Think about how foods or medications can trigger allergic reactions in some people but not others. Our bodies react differently to various substances, so it only makes sense that what we eat can impact our weight in different ways.
The Problem with One-Size-Fits-All Diets
Trying to figure out the right diet plan for your system can be frustrating. You may not have success with eating regimens that have worked well for others. Or you lost weight in the beginning, but your results became less impressive–or non-existent–over time. Sometimes, these diets are too restrictive to be sustainable. Often, though, they just aren’t compatible with your system.
The Science of Personalized Meal Plans
The impact of food on metabolism and weight can be tracked by a number of medical tests. Genetic, blood sugar and food sensitivity tests are some of the measurements that can be used to help determine the optimal diet for your body. The way your body processes and metabolizes foods says a lot about how they affect weight loss and gain. For example, an imbalance in blood sugar levels can contribute to weight gain. Monitoring post-meal blood-sugar spikes and the foods that caused them can help pinpoint weight-gain culprits, while genome testing provides clues to what your body needs due to genetic predispositions.
The Test of Time
The way you feel is a good indicator of the effect your diet has on your body. Although a major change in eating habits can negatively affect your mood and physical state in the first few days, you should be able to tell how your new eating plan is affecting your overall well-being after about six weeks.
