Many people promote diets ranging from a Low-Carb diet to the Paleo diet, all the way to the Moon diet and even intermittent fasting. How would you identify which one suits you the best with these diets having devoted advocates? Ultimately at Dietmonsta, we would break it as simply as possible. Your diet plan doesn't matter as much as the meal plan. The best diet for fat loss and improving overall health is the diet that has you on a calorie deficit.

You likely hear how a low-carb meal plan benefits weight loss, but the approach could also help optimise some people's health. Therefore, a low-carb diet may help keep your blood sugar in check and keep your insulin level low to aid weight loss.

Starting Point

Begin with identifying your daily calorie intake to estimate your ideal deficit plan. Learn how much is your basal metabolic rate and take into account your level of activity in your daily routine. Adjust your calorie intake for weight loss. You can see how you feel and adjust the daily calories to meet your goals. The optimal rate of weight loss is between 0.5 to 1.5% of body weight weekly, where 1.5% would be exhausting, and 0.5% is more gradual and less demanding.

Eating Right

Dietmonsta meal plans cover everything your body needs with three significant macronutrients: proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. We ensure all our plans offer enough protein in your diet.

Our nutritionist believes you need sufficient protein in your diet to nourish mass muscle retention. Daily protein intake depends on body weight, body fat percentage, and age. Losing fat means you will lose some muscle mass. Studies show a protein intake of 30% of your total calories will produce optimal results in your weight loss journey.

Including good fats in your diet helps keep your cholesterol level low and maintain cardiovascular health. Incorporating healthy fats into your meals is convenient as nuts are easy to snack and added to salads, sandwiches, and cooked grains. Opt for olives, avocado, nuts, seeds and fatty fish.

Lastly, fill the rest with healthy carbs containing fruits, Greek yoghurt, vegetables, and beans to get the vitamin D and calcium you get from carbohydrates and dairy products.

Fueling Workout

Our body needs high-quality complex carbs to be efficient. You may be thinking a bowl of sugary confection that's only 500 calories is an extra hour of cardio to burn off. Though the calorie count may be the same, a bowl of grilled chicken salad offers macros that keep you healthy. Meanwhile, a bowl of ice cream means more time spent catching up on your diet plan. Follow through with your selected macros and monitor your progress. If you lose between 0.5 to 1.5% of body weight, keep your weight training and meal plan up
