Top 10 Diet Rule Experiment: How To Tell If a Diet Will Work For You
If you and I went to the local magazine stand and scanned
the covers of the fitness magazines we would find dozens of ‘weight loss’
In fact we could spend the rest of the week reading
magazines about the latest greatest weight loss tricks many of which may
actually work for someone. But realistically there’s just no way you could
actually follow ALL of them. So how do you know which ones are right for
The easy answer is you have to decide which rules fit best
for YOUR life and then try to stick to just one or two that will make the most
sense for you and have the most benefit.
This may be the first time in your life you become a
scientist, and your experiment is you. Here’s what you do…
Browse any of the popular magazines, blogs, websites or
anywhere you like to get fitness information. Read up on the diet and weight
loss tips and tricks, these could be simple changes like not drinking calories,
or a bigger philosophy like limiting the amount of carbs that you
Make a top 10 list of diet strategies you’d like to try, and
that sound doable to you. At this point add one new diet strategy to your life
for two weeks. Record your bodyweight at the beginning of the two weeks and
again at the end. If you haven’t lost any weight this strategy doesn’t work (for
you). Discard it and move on to the next one.
This is the simplest way to tell if something will work for
YOU. If the strategy you picked sounds like a good idea but seems too difficult
for you to manage then it’s simply not a good fit for you in this stage of your
life. If it worked for your friend but not for you that’s ok, there will be one
that works just for you, this is why you make a top 10 list and try each of
them, one at a time.
Let’s suppose you find one that works over a two week period
and you don’t want to stop. That’s fine, just add the next one in the list, if
you can handle more than one strategy at once more power to you and you’ll
probably lose fat even faster. My guess is that sticking to more than one or two
rules will be almost impossible, so it will be pretty easy to tell which
strategy is really working.
For me the simpler the diet is the better, (which is the
main premise behind Eat Stop Eat).
Even when you are following the Eat Stop Eat lifestyle you
can still use the top 10-diet rule as a way to guide how you eat on your ‘eat
