Hi, my name is Lisa Moskovitz and I'm a registered dietitian and certified in the state of New York, with a private practice on the upper east side. I specialize in weight management, exercise and sports nutrition. And I'll be talking to you about diets. So, what's the best diet for weight loss? Well, unfortunately, there's no perfect plan that will work for everybody. Instead, I always encourage people to take advantage of the fact that there are so many different programs and plans out there today. Find something that works for you. Something like The South Beach Diet, where you're eating everything in moderation and it doesn't restrict any food groups. Always choose the most nutritionally dense foods and stay away from foods that contain lots of calories, saturated fats, or refined carbohydrates. For example, fruits and vegetables, lean protein, low fat dairy, and plenty of healthy fats from olive oil and nuts would be a good direction for you to go in. Make sure that whatever plan you embark on that you get approval from your physician. Make sure it's safe, healthy and appropriate for you based on your own medical needs, medical history, and food preferences, and of course, always include moderate amounts of exercise.
