The subject "Healthy Diets" is one of the most emotionally charged subjects of all time. The best diets are those that charge your metabolism without breaking down your body through stress. Healthy diets are hormonally balanced, immune supporting diets and the only way to obtain long term success no matter your end goal is to reduce the stress and begin living in a "calm" nutritional and lifestyle environment.
With a bit of trial and error, you too can figure out which foods nourish and energize you and determine those that make you feel sleepy, bloated and cause weight gain. When we understand that weight loss and gain is a hormonal process, we can finally liberate ourselves from the starvation diets that only damage our metabolisms further. You can eat the healthiest diet in the world but if you're under stress, no diet will prevent the "bulging belly." Your stress is causing hormones to raise blood sugar potentially putting you into a state of metabolic chaos.
Your healthy diet should energize, revitalize and nourish your body. When researching, consider the advice that will be an anti-aging, stress reducing diet for optimum health and vitality. That diet should predominantly be based upon whole, nutrient dense foods.
Your diet should be based on your biochemical individuality. Are you a fast or slow oxidizer? Do you need to reduce fat or increase it? Reduce or increase carbohydrate? So frequently, I meet Women who have been dieting only to become ill, gain stomach fat and suffer fatigue all while "dieting harder." It's a phenomenon you see all over social media and forums. Well intended people consistently encouraging you to reduce carbohydrate even further when in a stall or health rut. It's just not as simple as that and in fact, if you're suffering in a high stress environment, reducing carbohydrate might make you feel worse.

It is my best diagnostic tool when the diet fails.

Under eating is one of the least metabolic decisions you can make.
The low-fat diet while sometimes restrictive is preferred by some. If you need to increase your cellular respiration, creating more energy, a higher carbohydrate, lower fat diet might be the plan for you.
