Confused about what to eat?11th March 2015
How many diets have you been on? Paleo, Weight loss, Vegetarian, 5:2 and Raw food diets are trendy right now and over the years we have seen some good, bad and pretty scary diets.
The Grapefruit Diet, also know as the Hollywood Diet was born in 1930. The popular low-cal plan called for eating grapefruit with every meal. In the 1950s there was the Cabbage Soup Diet which promised you could lose 5-7kg in a week by eating a limited diet including cabbage soup every day.
Then there was Slim Fast, Atkins, Zone, Ketogenic, Macrobiotic, South Beach and Lemon Juice Diets which were accompanied with “diet products” by the same name.
It’s confusing right? How do you determine what is a fad and what we are meant to eat?
Firstly, begin with a better understanding of your current food choices.
