Nowadays it seems like everywhere you look a new diet is being touted as the best one for you. This can be confusing as you have so much contrasting information presented to you, it can make the decision on what you should eat, overwhelming.
You have one friend who has started ‘keto’ and dropped 10kgs effortlessly and you have another friend who has gone vegan and has never felt better, yet the thought of removing meat or carbohydrates from your diet makes you want to weep into your roast chicken sandwich.
So, what is the perfect diet for everyone?
The truth? It doesn’t exist. Or at least not in the way you have been searching for.
There is no one perfect diet for everyone, just like there is not one perfect diet for someone for life. What might be the perfect diet for you now, may not be next week, or next year even.
Imagine the diversity between individuals and you can start to see why a cookie cutter approach to nutrition just doesn’t work.
- Body type: some people may be overweight with a great lipid profile, while others could be a stick figure with triglyceride levels through the roof.
- Activity levels: You have athletes and you have sedentary office workers
- Stress levels
- Budget: some people can afford all the paleo cereal and cacao nibs they can get their hands on, whilst others are strictly Pak’n Save shoppers.
- Ethical practices: some people don’t eat meat for religious or ethical reasons, regardless of health views.
- Time: some have the time to prep and plan every meal whereas some have no choice but to rely on Uber eats multiple times per week.
