There is an old proverb which says ‘One Man’s Meat is Another Man’s Poison’. I love this saying, as it reminds me of the very simple fact that we are all different – and thank goodness we are, otherwise the world would be a pretty boring place. So that is why it amuses me greatly when I see a ‘diet’ published in womans’ magazine that GUARANTEES weight loss despite the fact it takes NO WAY into account the metabolic rates, activity levels, health statuses or the different palates of those who may wish to try the diet.
I recently stumbled across a ‘Non-Dieters’ Diet’ created by respected dietician Susie Burrell. When I read through the meal options on the three eating plans offered I almost died – there would be no way I would possibly lose weight on any of these eating plans: in fact, I would probably gain a kilogram or two over a fortnight.
In case you missed the diet, here it is: http://cleo.com.au/nondieters_diet.htm
Let’s take the ‘On-The-Go’ Diet: If I were to have the second breakfast choice, the sushi for lunch and potato for dinner, I would positively ‘blow up’ from starchy carb overload. Not only that, I think that my body would go into ‘fruit deprivation’ meltdown as, for me, having at least 3-4 pieces of fruit every day is what I need to maintain my weight.
Don’t get me wrong – there may be some people who could lose weight perfectly following the ‘Non Dieters’ Diet’…but I would certainly not be one of them. And I am sure I would not be alone – I deal with a lot of clients whose body simply couldn’t lose weight with such a large carbohydrate allowance.
This is why at The Natural Way we do not have a ‘one diet fits all’ approach to our eating plans. We appreciate that everyone is different which is why we spend so much time in the first consultation trying to get an overall health and lifestyle ‘picture’ of our clients, so we can pick the best plan to suit their needs. Naturally, if we happen to choose an eating plan that doesn’t quite suit, it doesn’t matter – we simply just pick another one of our many options and work with our client until we find one that suits their tastes and gives them the best results on the scales.
