…and after some research, I’ve decided that, for me, the best way to go is low carb. Even possibly…ketogenic. But , I’m just going to start with low carb. Sounds good to me and more importantly, it seems like a diet that I can stick with. And let’s face it, no matter what you choose, what is more likely to be successful is what you can stick with as an overall way of life, way of eating.
I’m just researching now and do not intend to start until March. This gives me a little time to use up whats in my pantry now without wastage, as well as deciding what is going to work for me and what might be a sticking point.
I like low carb because I’m not particularly sweets oriented or particularly bread oriented. Not that I don’t like both to some degree, but if someone put a gun to my head and said ‘pick the foods that you don’t ever want to be without for the rest of your life!’…well, I would pick eggs, bacon and spinach.
So in researching this, I have found that there are multiple ‘studies’ about the benefits about this kind of diet and many more studies about conflicting diets.
So…would I be right in assuming that it doesn’t matter what the studies say? Because it seems as though these kind of discussions ultimately end up in breaking down to ‘study vs study, cite vs cite’.
So, I’ve just decided to go with what ‘feels right’ for me. Might not be right for everyone, but I think its right for me.
Seriously, is there anything definitive out there for or against this diet plan - or any other for that matter? Is there any study that doesn’t have a conflicting study out there somewhere…or at least one that can be interpreted as conflicting?
