People often wonder if there is a best diet or way of eating for weight loss.
Despite what you read online, or hear from your friends and family, it may come as a surprise to learn that there is no proven "best diet" for weight loss! The calorie content of food is the only food property that has been consistently demonstrated to affect body fat gain or loss. There have been countless studies comparing the different diets out there like, low carbohydrate diets, the ketogenic diet, low-fat diets, intermittent fasting, etc. We lovingly call this the 'Diet Wars Debate'. But many large studies show that there are minimal and inconsistent differences in weight loss and health outcomes in the long run when you compare these different diets.
Contrary to popular belief, eating carbohydrates is not the cause of fat gain. The only consistent finding is that adherence (the ability to stick with a calorie-reduced diet plan) is most strongly associated with weight loss and improved health.
