This is what a “diet” really means

Many people go out there saying they are on a diet without paying attention to the real definition.

To begin with, let’s explore the roots of the word diet.

It comes from the greek diata, which means “a way of living”

So this means that when you say “you’re on a diet”, in reality, you mean that this is what you do on a daily basis.

So considering you are on a diet every day (regardless of the approach you take), you are already on a diet… even when you don’t think you’re in onne.

But, what does this has to do with fat loss…

And to be more specific, how can you use this concept and understanding to lose far?

The answer lies in the actual question.

If you go on a fat loss phase and take an approach that no matter how great, sexy or appealing it may look, you end up not being able to stick to it and maintain it, then you will get the weight back you put off in the first place.

You have to first know that doing those quick “X week challenges)” are what is going to help you navigate to your ideal body and not gain the results back, then you know that’s not true.

To make consistent results and actually make sure you don’t have to make another diet again to lose the same weight, then you have to change your eating preferences.

One thing worth mentioning…

This doesn’t mean you have to go super low on calories for the rest of your life or that you will be doing something like IF or keto to then get back to what you were used to doing before.

It all means you have to know that short-term fixes won’t get you long-term results.

4 questions to choose the right diet for you (out of thousands)

Out of the dozen (maybe a hundred) diets out there, which one you choose will determine whether you get the results – and how much you’ll keep them.

Not because there is anything special or magical about a specific diet,…

but because if you don’t know which one you should choose, you are very likely to keep repeating the same cycle again and again.


Because the diet you choose is key to helping you lose weight fast, how long you’re gonna keep that weight… 

assuming you lose weight in the first place.

Now, here’s my simple steps to know which diet is the best option for you:

Ask yourself these 4 questions (in order):

  1. What type of food you cannot give up, no matter what? → Important: think not only as a sacrifice for 90 days, but rather you won’t be able to eat them ever again.
  2. What’s the reason you cannot leave that food out of your diet? (be specific, of course).
  3. Is there a diet that allows you to eat this type of food you cannot give up? Y/N 
  4. Can you make this diet a lifestyle? Y/N

This will get rid of most of the options you hear out there and focus rather on something based on your preferences and current situation.

If you’re wondering why I’m asking you these 4 questions and whether they make sense, just think about it this way.

It doesn’t matter if you think keto is “the diet” for you to lose weight, yet you can’t eat only fats and protein all day long, or you simply can’t give up the idea of eating something like potatoes, rice, bread and any other carb.

That’s why you need to choose something that works for you.

In this epidemic of fad diets and constant quick fixes to long term problems is vital for you to at least 

Don’t underestimate the questions.

We tend to like what seems so complicated and then rationalize it as the reason we couldn’t get results in the first place.

That couldn’t be further from the truth.

First, assess your current preferences and diet in order to know what you can tolerate and follow rather than simply throwing 

And if you want to know more ways on how you can make the next diet you make the last one you’ll need with simple tips like this one, then you’re gonna want to sign up below:

Not all weight loss is created equal

Do you know why I’d rather lose 3-5 pounds of fat per month than 10+ of weight? Simply because it lets me know that the majority of the weight I lose will come from fat and not other tissues like muscle. There’s this idea that all weight loss is created equal. And they simply don’t

The myth of Glycemic Index and what to focus instead

If you were to say that GI is important, you’d be right. But at the same time, you would be focusing only on one area rather than in the whole scenario. Let me explain. It’s not uncommon to hear that people should avoid high glycemic index food since that causes spike in insulin, thus leading
