We are all told that dieting was the way of the past and 'healthy eating' is the way of the future.  Why is dieting such a dirty word, when essentially all dieting means is changing your diet with the short term goal of losing weight?  Well I guess we have to thank the many dangerous dieting techniques available that have adversely affecting people’s health.  Below is a list of some of the favourite diets around at the moment:


  • 100-Mile diet
  • Atkins diet
  • Cabbage soup diet
  • Calorie restriction
  • The Cambridge diet
  • Detox diet
  • High protein diet
  • Liquitarian diet
  • Low-carbohydrate diet
  • Mediterranean diet
  • Organic food diet
  • Sugar Busters
  • Total Wellbeing diet

Some of the dieting processes mentioned above have been considered unhealthy long term, such as the liquidation diet or cabbage soup diet.  However others such as the Total Wellbeing Diet is based on a well balanced approach.  The key to dieting in a healthy manner is always a well balanced approach.  What you need to understand in dieting is that you will always lose weight when your calorie burn is greater than your calorie intake.  Given that fruit and vegetables have such low calorie values (compared to fats and carbohydrates) it only makes good sense to include them in any dieting technique.  Dieting with generous amounts of fruit and vegetables ensures you enhance your chance of successful healthy dieting. 

So dieting should not be seen as a dirty word if you take a well balanced approach rather than a lose weight at all costs one.  Here are some general dieting tips to keep in mind.



  • Sit instead of standing while eating.  Research has shown it will make you more conscious of what you are eating, at thus make you more aware of your dieting habits. 
  • Don't eat in front of the refrigerator.  70% of people dieting have confessed to eating high calorie food whilst standing in front of the refrigerator. 
  • Use calorie counting to help dieting.  Dieting can often be very frustrating when you lose weight for 2 weeks and then put weight back on the next week.  Calorie counting is such and effective way to help dieting as it keeps you motivated and takes the guess work out of dieting.
