A lot of articles on fat loss plans suggest that weight loss does not depend on the type of diet you are in. The key element to achieve fat loss is energy restriction. Whether you are on a vegetarian diet, Atkins diet, a low-fat, low carb diet or any kind of diet for that matter, you will only lose extra pounds if the energy restriction component is enough to create a caloric deficit at the end of the day. The one that works and provides long term result is the best diet plan. It should be one that resonates with your personal choices and values towards food.
