Choosing the right diet

I figured that if I am struggling to find the diet to suit my family as well as my health issues, others may be too. So I am going to share some of the tips that I am finding:

  1. There is a quiz you can take: Best diet for me (for me it left me with too many options)
  2. I really like this website for helping you find the right diet for you: DietTV
  3. Here is another quiz you can take: The ‘Right Diet’ Eating Personality Quiz
  4. You should follow a healthy diet that you like and that you can stick to. The diet should be low in fats (especially saturated and trans fats) and sugars, and high in fiber and protein.
  5. Make changes you can make a part of your everyday life.
  6. I want a diet that is easy to follow for the long haul
  7. I want a diet that is easy to Stick With
  8. I want a diet that is simple to understand
  9. I want a diet that makes eating out easy
  10. I want a diet that is fits into my busy schedule

I was surprised when I saw the thing about the dieting personality with that particular link. I didn't think any other site besides diet.com dealt with the Personality Type Diet Plan. It really is different (and I think more realistic) than other popular diets. Thanks for giving it this attention.


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
