  1. 1. Diet ChoicesThe word “diet” oftentimes strikes a dreadful chord to most who’ve tried so many buthave failed to achieve long term weight loss, the most common goal of those who goon them. Some actually feel so deprived as the foods they were used to enjoyingwere completely prohibited. The result is temporary weight loss but as soon as soonas they go off the diet, they binge and gain the weight back and then some.The recipes shared are far from fads and trends and are founded on practicalachievable and sustainable principles. Vegetarianism and veganism are eating lifestylepractises that take out animal products in varying levels. On the other hand. high-fiber, gluten- and lactose-free, low-carb and low-sodium are guidelines thatcharacterise food selection and consumption. These can overlap and benefit fromeach other.It is recommended to adopt an eating plan that is enjoyable and nutritious,economical, achievable and sustainable. One can go on an occasional fad diet to lostweight quickly to get into a party dress but a lifestyle lifetime change towardshealthier eating is much better.Go on a simple keyword search or on various websites or visit the health or foodsection of any bookstore and it’s easy to get confused by the enormous amount andvariety of information from celebrities, doctors and clinics who all claim that their dietis the key to weight loss and health. These continue on to provide testimonials fromsuccess stories but rarely reveal the complete picture.The majority of these “prescriptions” entail a lot of restrictions on what one shouldeat and strict measurements of what one can. To give an idea of the variety of dietsout there, dozens of categories from “Asian diets” to “Detox diets and cleanses” to“Weight loss clinic diets” that dictate food combinations; prohibit food combinations;count calories; weigh food or outright sell a product or set of products, usually foodsupplements, meal replacements and whatnot.Those who espouse a lifestyle choice discourage diets and instead promote areasonable gradual lifestyle change to eating more healthily. They also recommendtransitioning into any chosen practise. For example initially going 20% vegetarian thenprogressing to 50% then higher then eventually going 100%. Some go further and turnvegan completely giving up animal products.
