When doctors talk about “diet”, they mean sticking to a balanced eating regime. These days, however, the word tends to be associated with one of the many fad diets. But while these may help you shed pounds, many unsupervised diets can cause a host of health problems.
The better solution is to ditch the trends, consult a doctor, and put a few simple and effective rules into practice.
The bottom line is that you don’t need to “diet” to manage your weight. You just need to learn to eat, drink and live better.
