A person’s body weight is influenced by many factors including genetics, learned eating patterns from childhood, unbalanced hormones, blood sugar imbalances, body shape or blood type, or may be just the end result of overeating and under-exercising.

With the lure of “get slim fast” diets and products widely available, it is not surprising that these options are very popular. However, the best long-term plan is based on a healthy and nutritionally balanced program that can also examine individual reasons behind emotional eating.

Rules before starting a new eating plan

  • The best time to start a new eating regime is when you are highly committed and motivated.
  • Choose a diet that gives you the most healthy, varied and easy-to-prepare menus.
