7 Criteria to plan your diet
|The One and Only Randy Glasbergen|
Of late, after I lost lots of weight, many students ask about dieting. Since they come in all shapes and sizes it is obvious that a standardized diet plan wont fit everyone. So what is the criteria when deciding a diet plan?
Is it weight loss, weight gain, cosmetic body sculpting, build power, preparing for a competition? Be specific of your primary desire.
Criteria 2 - What is your current status?
Are you extremely obese, just over-weight, under-weight and so on? This is to indicate the time and effort needed to close the gap between your present and ideal.
Criteria 3 - Do you have any identified or suspected medical issue?
Sedentary life, Reasonably physically active, Highly strenuous and so on?
Criteria 5 - What is your age?
Criteria 6 - What is your natural body type?
The 3 major body types are -
Ectomorph: Lean and long, with difficulty building muscle.
Endomorph: Big, high body fat, often pear-shaped, with a high tendency to store body fat. Mesomorph: Muscular and well-built, with a high metabolism and responsive muscle cells.
There are more complex body-types too.. So, factor in your natural body type while setting objectives

Diet plans require commitment of Time, Effort and Money too. So, choose a diet plan which can be accommodated by your life style.
