The answer is not really, lol!
I saw a question posed earlier about finding THE correct 'diet', about getting mixed answers from different places like your doctor, your weight loss program, your dietitian, etc...
I think the reason that none of these people can agree on an answer is a simple one.
There are approximately 7 billion people in the world, that's billion, with a 'B'
Which pretty much means if you tried the exact same thing on each person on the planet, you *could* come up with 7 billion results.
Ok, maybe that is stretching it a bit, but the fact is that we are all different.
Coming from the same genetic pool, my siblings and I look very much alike, but are very different when it comes to nutrition and how our diets affect our bodies.
My brother didn't really lose weight until he cut out carbs from flour and white rice, his son has the only peanut allergy in our entire family. My older sister is allergic to wheat and a thousand other food items. My younger sister is lactose intolerant but can eat anything else on the face of the planet and is pretty thin despite the amount of carbs and bacon she eats (she is a bacon-a-holic!)
My older sister also cannot understand why her doctor cannot give her a 100% positive answer to her problems. I tried explaining to her that a doctor can only make an educated guess, as can her nutritionist. It's the same with the suggestions that I give her, they are only suggestions...things that I have heard, tried, or reasoned out.
We can all try things, there are things that we KNOW that will work. Portion control, cutting down or cutting out the fat that you eat, getting up and moving.
Outside of that, we all lead very different lives. Your own life will even change from time to time.
The bottom line is that there is no ONE perfect road map for our journey to health. You have to sift through all that available information and apply what is right for YOU. You might find it through trial and error, or just even through some common sense. Take what works for you and build on it.
(P.S. I am feeling a bit improved)
