5 Reasons Why You Should Follow a Personalized Diet Plan

Curious about trying a personalized diet plan? First, let’s consider your options. Every person is different, yet so many diets are the same. Many programs take a general approach to weight loss that’s supposed to work for most people — count your calories, cut your carbs, exercise more — without providing much support. Others hone in on food fads, like celery juice cleanses or the keto diet for a “quick fix.” If you’re tired of getting conflicting weight loss advice, a personalized diet plan might be just what you need to start losing weight. Unlike a generic meal plan that anyone can follow, a custom diet plan takes your unique lifestyle into consideration. If you’re looking to lose weight, consider these five reasons to try a personalized diet plan.

Simple Carbs vs. Complex Carbs: What’s the Difference?

Carbohydrates often get a bad rap when it comes to weight loss, but understanding the differences between simple and complex carbs is key. Compared to the keto diet, which can call for severe carbohydrate restriction, there are healthy ways to enjoy your favorite foods — even if you’re following a low-carb diet. Carbohydrates are not only an important part of a healthy, well-balanced diet, but when eaten in the right amounts and in the right form, they may actually help your weight loss efforts!

 

Read on for our complete guide to carbohydrates, which includes information about why they’re important; a discussion of simple vs. complex carbs and which ones can support health and weight loss; and a list of healthy carbs to include in your daily diet (and ones you may want to avoid).

11 of the Best Foods for Men's Health

Convenience and healthy foods usually don’t go hand in hand (unless, of course, you’re following the Jenny Craig program!) Generally speaking, foods that are ready to eat right off the supermarket shelf — think greasy potato chips or a sugar-laden box of cookies — typically offer little or no protection from heart disease, diabetes, or obesity. To find healthy foods for men, you need to look beyond the boxes and bags. 

 

The foundation of your diet should be a mix of high-potency vegetables and fruits, healthy fats, and complete protein. With that in mind, we scoured the research to find foods that may not only boost men’s health, but also may support weight loss and muscle growth. So the next time you’re at the grocery store — you’ll want to load up on these 11 foods. If you’re following the Jenny Craig program, you’ll find most of these foods incorporated into your meals.
