Calorie Restrictive Diet is the type of diet that allows you to eat whatever; as long as you ate fewer calories than your body burned that day.
For example, I consumed 1,200 calories but today I burned 1,300 calories which puts me in a caloric restrictive state.
This type of diet is hard for most for a couple of reasons:
You’ll be turning down your favorite meals, snacks, and drinks. (That should be enough because who turns down baked goods #myweakness)
Test your willpower. This diet will test you mentally all day long and for most their willpower runs out which leads them to indulging in bad foods.
We are quirky and fallible humans.
Food Restrictive Diet is a new-school way of dieting; just like the caloric restrictive diet you can eat all you want. However, you don’t have to worry about watching calorie intake. But you must avoid certain foods.
Here are a few food restrictive diets:
Vegans (no animals period)
Vegetarians (too many to name)
Keto (no carbs)
Paleo (avoidance of processed foods, and refined sugar and salt)
With that being said, I am against DIETS. Like they literally have the word “die” in it which means that’s how I will feel when on a diet, Diets are temporary; they don’t last forever because you wouldn’t want to eat that way forever.
My advice is too make your eating style a lifestyle. Start implementing good habits into your life that will help you with this process. Don’t just go on a diet to temporarily fix a health problem.
It all starts with what you are putting on your plate. It’s other adding life or subtracting.
