Question: I need to lose some weight for my high school reunion in 3 months. What kind of diet do you suggest?
Answer: The best diet I can recommend is simply to eat sensibly. The key to diets is this. Don't even consider going on any diet that you wouldn't want to stay on for the rest of your life. A diet should never be a temporary fix. It should be a lifelong eating pattern that emphasizes balanced nutrition. Always remember that what you want to develop are good eating habits that will last a lifetime. I would never recommend that you have to cut out all of your favorite foods or go on some restrictive diet. That kind of thinking will not lead to long-term success... and all of us are in this for the long term.
