The 4- Letter Word
From Ask the Registered Dietitian… “Hi Gretchen! Anyway you could brief some of the best diets out there? Which is the best in your opinion? Personally been trying the paleo thing lately, but heard about carb cycling and the ketogenic diet and I’m not sure which is best for my health.” -Julie
Although I touched on diets at the beginning of the New Year, I never hesitate to help out with this ever-looming question that plagues millions of Americans every day. If you have worked with me before, or any Registered Dietitian for that matter, you will quickly learn that the word diet ranks up there with some of the worst “potty words” in the book!
“The best diet is the one you don’t know you are on.” This is one of my favorite quotes and it comes from Brian Wansink, PhD, World-renowned eating behavior expert and author of the book “Mindless Eating.” I agree. To me, diets have an end. Diets are typically restrictive. Diets sell books and products. Diets don’t make room for vacations, celebrations, sickness, and life events. Diets don’t allow for human nature.
