With so many “diets” out there, it’s impossible to figure out which ones actually work. People do keto and lose tons of weight. And yet others will just intermittently fast and see results while still eating carbs. So what’s the secret? A caloric deficit, my friends.
If I sound like a broken record, its because I really want to drive this point home. To lose weight, you need to be in a caloric deficit (yes it is possible to be eating way too few calories and thus hurting results, but thats a separate topic). When people lose weight intermittent fasting, its because they are in a caloric deficit. Weight Watchers works for the same reason. Want to try eating vegan to lose weight? Great, it will work if you’re in a caloric deficit.
Diets are tools to help you lose weight. At the core, they all have the same goal. But they are all different methods of getting you there. Eating keto may make it easier for you to eat fewer calories, but it is not a secret to weight loss. It’s simply a strategy!
Different diets have unique benefits, and some may be better than others when it comes to different aspects of your health. But when it comes to weight loss, they are all equally effective because in the end, they are all accomplishing one thing. A caloric deficit.
