The south beach diet, paleo diet, 5:2 diet, low carb diet, atkins diet, ketogenic diet. Plus the cabbage soup diet, baby food diet, lemon water diet, lean in 25 diet, Mediterranean diet, raw foods diet. The list goes on and on and on. But which one is the right one for you? How do you know what is the right food to eat? How much do you need to eat and when do you need to eat it?.
I’m going to relate this blog to a lot of my real clients and both them and I follow an eating plan. For my clients it all starts with keeping a food diary. By keeping an accurate and honest food diary it means that you know exactly where you’re starting from in terms of what you’re eating and how much of it. The main reasons for me analysing a food diary is A, see what food you’re eating. B, work out how much of your diet is carbs, protein and fats. C, to ascertain what your eating habits and patterns are.
By knowing A,B and C I can then develop a picture of what diet will suit you time wise and habit wise. Combined with a full lifestyle analysis. I will be able to give you time windows for when and what food to prep in advance what you can cook fresh.
Now, the issue comes for my clients with all the conflicting information available on the TV and over the internet and in books. One source will say this diet is best, another site/TV show will say the same method doesn’t work as well. One newspaper will say butter and fats are bad. Another article and published bit research may actually say that butter and saturated fat isn’t bad at all. Plus is actually essential for health. Confusing at hell right? So how do you know what to do?
Keep it short and simple. Food doesn’t need to be complicated for you. Here is a basic rule, if you’re going to do less then eat less. If you’re going to do more then eat more. A great rule to follow particularly if you’re inconsistent with your exercise. The key here is the choice of what you eat.
Keeping it simple, eat from the land. If you know that what you’re eating has been grown, picked, lived a high welfare life on a good free range farm or come from the sea. Then eat it, simples. When it comes to things like oils and fats. My preference is to lean towards coconut or rice bran oil for cooking with because of of the lower smoke point. Olive oil I use for dressing and flavour. Butter wise I use the kerrygold brand because it comes from free range grass fed cows. The difference in quality is amazing, both in flavour and texture.

I get asked a lot, how can I improve my metabolism? How can I lose the gut? How can I improve my digestion? What should I do for losing weight? Plus a load of others, but those I’d say are the main ones. Now, a blanket answer that covers pretty much all these answers is… read on
