Diet plans and types explained
Following a diet of one kind or another is perhaps more common today
than it has ever been. If someone mentions they are 'on a diet' you might
instantly think that they are trying to lose weight. However a weight
loss diet is just one type of diet.
People commence on diet plans for a wide range of reasons including weight
loss, increased energy, muscle growth, body repair, combating of illnesses
and diseases, prevention of allergic reactions and avoidance of hyperactivity
and depression. As you can see the food you eat can have a profound influence
on your physical and mental being.
With the highly varied aims and requirements of different dieters and
their diet plans as illustrated above it is no surprise that there are
a large number of diets that can be tried and tested. Some diet plans
will be absolutely no use to you as their end objectives will not be the
same as what your personal requirements are.
In these diet pages we aim to outline the basic principles and aims of
many of the well known diet plans that exist. This will hopefully provide
you with a basic knowledge that you can use as a base to further your
understanding and choices. Please consult your doctor or health professional
before making any changes in your diet.
At Happy Juicer we believe eating a well balanced diet that contains
plenty of vegetables and fruits is a sensible way to approach eating.

If weight loss is your objective then try to accompany your diet with
exercise and follow a diet where the weight loss is gradual rather than
drastic. People who go on a 'quick fix' diet to rapidly lose weight tend
to rapidly regain the pounds very quickly when they come off the diet.
