Is there a diet that meets all my nutritional needs as well as leading to weigh loss?

Nutritional balance won't be at the top of many women's priority list when choosing a diet plan. We want to lose a lot of weight, in as little time as possible, and with the least amount of effort.

However, it would be silly not to consider the nutritional aspects of prospective eating plans. You are what you eat may be a cliche but that doesn't make it any less true. So if you follow a diet low in fibre, vitamins, minerals or essential fats, your body will soon let you know how it feels about it.

So which diets are best in terms of nutritional content? Well, diets that prohibits or dramatically restrict any of the main food groups can be ruled out. You need protein, carbohydrate and fats for your body to function properly.

Similarly, any diet that reduces your daily calorie intake to well below the recommended allowance of 2000 are also nutritionally poor. You need calories for energy and without sufficient energy, your body will soon begin to deteriorate.

Only diet plans that promote a balanced eating plan can be said to be nutritionally healthy. Eating moderate quantities of a range of different foods will help meet all your nutritional needs.
