There is no magic pill, super-effective protocol, or “the only diet that works”… At least none of the published onces will be the perfect fit for you.
There are plenty of diets that claim to be the one and only working diet. Most of them have plenty of reviews and a track record of people who were successful with the diet. Once you give that particular diet a try, it nonetheless might not work for you. Or it works just for a while and you get stuck. Even though nearly all diets or protocols have many good and important aspects at their base, like importance of quality and freshness of products.
What is good to know, is that is mainly depending on you, as individual, what works for you. To make it even more variable: this can and will change over time as well. Of course there are certain basic components that remain the same over time and always be applicable (for instance: avoid refined sugar in products, avoid processed foods and do not overeat.), but some specifics will change for you. This could be due to adaptation of your body to your new habits, or due to hormonal changes in your body that happen over time.
Nevertheless you might be looking into diets, protocols or other ways to change your eating habits if you are not happy with your current physique. There must be a way to change your nutrition. So what is best to do?
One thing that is good to keep in mind is the fact that your body not only adjusts to physical challenges (the reason why you can get muscles to develop and grow), but also to your nutrition. A way I used this myself, is that I got rid of bread, pastry and potato from my diet for more than 30 days. After this period I included each item per day, to see how my body would react to it. Well… it became quite clear that my digestion and these foods do not agree with each other that much. This does not mean that you can never eat those products anymore, I still have some bread every now and then, but I reduced it drastically and am aware of the effects they can have.
This way you can test if you have certain food intolerances. Needless to say that this is a thing that differs from person to person and it is good to test every now and then.
Besides the specifics of food intolerance there are of course also the basic fundaments to keep in mind, as I mentioned above. So if you try to keep these things in mind and put them in practice, you are more on track to improve your nutrition and with that your overall health! And remember that there is no magic pill in diet.
