Are diet programs good or bad? This is such a tricky question, isn't it? Let me first preface this by saying that I know I'm lumping a whole lot into the term "diet”. When I say diet in this case, I'm talking about a restriction-based plan that tells you exactly what you can and cannot eat.
In the past, I myself have been on both sides of this good or bad argument. My journey toward sustainable health and wellness began on the strict calorie counting protocol. Then after years of yo-yo dieting, I swung to the opposite end of the spectrum, i.e. "Diets don't work!"
Today my viewpoint on diet plans has changed.
