Best diet for a healthy fitness?

Best diet  for a healthy fitness?

No single best but:: There is no consensus, even among "experts"; no single diet is best for everyone as we have different needs based on genetics. I advise emphasizing organic vegetables, fruits and nuts & seeds; eat whole foods; avoid fried foods, sugars and artificial chemicals. Organic dairy, eggs, wild fish and organically-raised meats in moderation. See http://tinyurl.com/nq4sx63 and http://tinyurl.com/lcjahnx ...Read more

What is a good healthy diet soda?

Zevia- avoid others: In general, there is no such thing as a "healthy diet soda." most diet sodas are extremely unhealthy- sweetened with toxic chemicals & increasing weight! see http://kimberlysnyder.Net/blog/2011/12/01/8-dangers-of-diet-soda/ the only one that may not have these hazards is zevia. However, while certainly less toxic than the others, I am not ready to call it healthy. I advise kombucha. See comment:. ...Read more

Should I start a low carb diet or is a balanced diet more healthy for weight loss??

Should I start a low carb diet or is a balanced diet more healthy for weight loss??

Interesting question: There are gazillions of fad diet programs out there & don't be hard on yourself if you feel like a deer in the headlights trying to figure out which one to select. Low-carb diets (depending on how low you go) work well, but you don't want to starve your brain from glucose. Healthy (polyunsaturated) fats are great appetite reducers, and you need protein as well to maintain your muscle mass. Cont-> ...Read more

Total caloric intake is far more important than the ratio of fat to protein to carbohydrate. Diet implies temporary and "diets" are generally discouraged as they do not maintain weight loss. Wt loss and maintenance is not solved by a diet but by lifestyle change. ...Read more
