Should you be avoiding legumes, fruit, dairy, wheat or other grains?
In short, no.
A lot of popular diets today single out one or more particular food groups and demonize them. And they then become the new scapegoat. Whether it’s wheat, dairy, grains, legumes, fruit, fat or something else, these fad diets obsess over one or more foods.
Truthfully, they are misguided. But what’s worse, they are scientifically wrong.
The result? It sends us all barking up the wrong tree and jumping from one fad to the next. But eventually we always end up right back where we started, confused and still unhealthy. For this reason, statistically speaking you are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer and beat it, than you are to lose weight and keep it off. Diets don’t work long-term. Repeat after me. Diets don’t work long-term. Any diet can and will work in the short-term, but we've all seen that they don’t last. And the research has shown us this time and time again.
Here at Health Movement we are developing a 30-Day Lifestyle Plan to help you accomplish your health goals. This most definitely is not a fad diet or quick fix.
We are the ANTI-QUICK FIX.
This lifestyle plan doesn't single out any one food group for the entire population because the collective research doesn’t say to do so. The obvious exception is for those who have a legitimate food allergy or sensitivity to a certain food(s). They would be wise to avoid them. But these people are the exception, not the rule. For the rest of us, yes you can find a study here or there to support any fad diet you want. But in research it's important to look at the collective science. And when you do, you find this long-term lifestyle based on our 30-Day Lifestyle Plan.
Stay tuned for more information. Our 30-Day Lifestyle Plan isn't just about nutrition, but includes all aspects of a healthy lifestyle and is for anyone wanting to be healthy regardless of your particular health goals.
Interested in learning more? We are putting together a group of people to pilot test our plan and will be starting sometime within the next month. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interesting in being a part of our pilot test.
No judging: we’re all on the same journey, just at different stages so let’s not tear each other down.
