Why Nutrition is a Main Factor of Any Diet Plan?


I have read lots of diet books, plans & methods and trust me when I say “a lot” because reading is my passion and fitness is my hobby. I try to keep finding tips & ways that cannot only help me stay in shape but also give me more material to create customized diet plans for my clients. After reading every famous & popular diet plan, I can safely say that every single plan has focused on one major factor i.e. Nutrition.

Diet Plans & People’s Psychology


Many diet plans added workouts and exercises just to play with people psychology. It’s a fact that most people believe that if you have to lose weight, you have to be in gym for hours and stop eating everything which is delicious. This, however, is nothing but further from the truth. You can lose weight while eating normally but healthy. Take for example Dukan’s  Diet Plan or 17 Day Diet Plan (which is basically same as Dukin). They give you so much choices to eat that you can actually diet while dining out which seems impossible. Then we have “500 calorie diet plan” where you don’t need to do workout as you are focus in on calorie intake rather than burning existing fat.

What If Your Weight Loss Plan is Missing Exercises?

Considering the above examples, I find it totally possible that anyone can lose weight or maintain healthy weight by simply adjusting what he/she is eating. Replacing some of the foods, which are harmful for your body anyway, with some healthy foods is a no-brainer. You will not only lose weight but your overall health and body condition will also improve. Having said that, lets dive into how eating healthy will be sufficient to lose your weight without any pills or special workouts. You should add following foods in your daily diet.

Foods to Include In Your Diet


  • Proteins
  • Good Fats
  • Minerals
  • Probiotics
  • Fluid

Foods to Exclude From Your Diet


  • Carbohydrates
  • Sugar
  • Processed foods
