Many diets have stood the test of time.
They became popular a long time ago, but people are still doing them and still getting results.
This includes, but is not limited to:
People tend to focus on (and argue about) what sets these diets apart.
So far, this “debate” has not been productive.
Not by a long shot.
Perhaps, instead of arguing, we should be focusing on all the things these diets have in common
Chances are that these are universal laws that work across the board, and can deliver results no matter what the rest of your diet is composed of.
The truth is, all the diets (or “ways of eating”) mentioned above, and all diets shown to be compatible with long-term health, do have a few important commonalities.
Here are 6 things that all successful “diets” have in common.
1. They Are Low in Added Sugar
Added sugar is the single worst ingredient in the diet.
Sugar is also “empty” calories, because it supplies a large amount of energy with literally no essential nutrients.
Pretty much everyone agrees that added sugar is bad. For this reason, most successful diets make it one of the main priorities to cut back on added sugar.
Bottom Line: There is universal agreement that a lot of added sugar is unhealthy, and most successful diets recommend limiting it.
2. They Eliminate Refined Carbohydrates
Another ingredient that people agree is unhealthy, is refined carbs.
Refined carbohydrates are usually grains that have had all the beneficial stuff removed.
The most common one is refined wheat flour, which is consumed in massive amounts in Western countries.
Refined grains are made by pulverizing whole grains and removing the bran and endosperm, which are the fibrous and nutritious parts.
For this reason, refined grains contain little more than starch, chains of glucose molecules.
Refined starch provides lots of energy with almost no essential nutrients (empty calories).
Although some diets (like paleo and low-carb) take things a step further and eliminate grains altogether, all successful diets at least emphasize limiting refined grains and replacing them with their whole, healthier counterparts.
Bottom Line: All successful diets eliminate refined grains like wheat flour, which is very unhealthy. However, some diets take things a step further and eliminate grains altogether.
3. They Eliminate Industrial Vegetable Oils
Industrial vegetable oils entered the human diet only recently.
Until about a 100 years ago, we simply didn’t have the technology to process them.
Whether they actually cause or protect from heart disease is controversial. Some observational studies show them to be protective, but many controlled trials suggest that they may be harmful (27, 28, 29, 30).
Also, the way these oils are manufactured is highly disgusting, and pretty much all of the beneficial nutrients are removed from the oils. Therefore, just like added sugars and refined grains, vegetable oils classify as “empty” calories.
Out of all the diets and dietary patterns shown to be compatible with long-term health, none of them included industrial vegetable oils.
Bottom Line: Industrial vegetable oils are incredibly harmful and contribute to numerous problems at the cellular level. No diet shown to be compatible with long-term health includes vegetable oils.
4. They Eliminate Artificial Trans Fats
Pretty much everyone agrees that artificial trans fats are unhealthy.
Trans fats are toxic, unnatural and there is absolutely nothing beneficial about them.
Bottom Line: Trans fats are highly toxic, made by hydrogenating vegetable oils. Many studies show a link to inflammation and diseases like heart disease.
5. They Are High in Vegetables and Fiber
The different “diets” eliminate all sorts of different foods.
For example, plant-based diets minimize (or eliminate) animal foods, while low-carb and paleo diets eliminate grains.
However, one of the things that all diets include is vegetables.
Bottom Line: All successful diets emphasize eating plenty of vegetables, and in most cases fruit as well. These foods are high in antioxidants and healthy prebiotic fibers.
6. They Focus on Foods Instead of Calories
One interesting thing that all of these diets have in common, is that none of them emphasize calorie restriction.
Instead, they put the emphasis on eating whole, single ingredient, healthy foods.
Although calories are obviously important for weight management, simply restricting calories without regard to the foods you eat is rarely effective in the long-term.
Most successful diets emphasize a lifestyle change that includes whole foods, and let weight loss follow as a natural side effect.

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
