How Do You Know if the Diet is Right For You?
The right diet for you amidst all of these choices depends on your body’s ability to regulate blood sugar, how much insulin you produce, your activity level, your current blood chemistry… and a lot more.
The latest fad diet is called the carnivore diet… and proponents of this diet say you shouldn’t eat any plants… your diet should be just meat.
That can’t be good for you! Even cavemen and carnivorous animals eat some plants. They eat the whole animal including the intestines which contain all the plants their prey ate.
The truth is many of the popular diet plans have merit for some people, and often some combination, tailored for your individual needs, is best for you.
