Which Diet is Best for Your Lifestyle?

There are countless diets available today, each claiming to have a unique approach to help you reach your weight loss goals and feel great.

There’s keto. There’s Atkins®. There’s the Mediterranean diet. And more and more diet plans are sparking interest all the time (Nordic diet, anyone?). It’s a lot to keep track of, especially when so many of these diets deliver only short-term weight loss results. 

It begs the question: Which diet is best for your lifestyle? That’s the question we answer for each patient based on their unique body, preferences, and goals. Rel L. Gray, MD, specializes in weight loss and nutrition. At our office in Ruston, Louisiana, we have helped countless patients find the right diet for sustainable weight loss results and long-term health and vitality. 

The problem with popular diets

There’s an issue with a lot of the most popular diets today. Many of them center on cutting specific ingredients out of your diet. They link these exclusions to weight loss, but this can lead to nutritional deficiencies. The keto diet, for example, can lead to kidney stones, low blood pressure, and even an increased risk of heart disease. 

On top of these nutritional deficiencies, popular diets that focus on elimination are hard to maintain long-term. You want to be able to enjoy your life, and permanently cutting out certain ingredients doesn’t make dining out with friends very easy.

Fortunately, Dr. Gray offers an alternative. At our office, we customize a diet specifically for you.  

Determining the best diet for you

Dr. Gray takes a personal approach with you. He knows that your body is unique, and he customizes your diet accordingly. After an initial health assessment, he tailors your diet program based on what your body needs, your personal food preferences, and your weight loss goals. 

At the same time, he ensures that you’re getting all of the nutrients you need to feel your absolute best. Dr. Gray is committed to helping patients get quality protein, plenty of fiber, and the right vitamins and minerals as they eliminate harmful ingredients like trans fats and processed sugars. His goal is to give you a diet that makes you feel physically amazing and never deprived. 

Long story short, the best diet for your lifestyle depends on your unique physical makeup and your personal goals. Rather than trying to stick to some generic, restrictive diet that was designed for the masses, you can choose Rel L. Gray, MD. Here, you get a custom-tailored program that’s right for you.
