Most people who want to start eating healthier begin by finding an eating plan to follow. While there are many different trends and ideas like vegetarianism, paleo, or keto diets, choosing the right one isn’t simple. In fact, no all plans work for everyone and it’s likely you’ll have to make your own version to work for you.

American dietician Caroline Passerrello told Verywell Fit that “when it comes to food and nutrition, it is not one-size-fits-all.” According to her, many factors affect our diet and everyone should understand what’s best for them personally. That doesn’t mean one person’s diet is better than another one’s.

Your diet may be influenced by the place where you live, by foods that are accessible to you, and by any illnesses and conditions you have.

Young, active people can’t eat the same foods as seniors or someone who has a sedentary job most days of the week. Fueling the body with the right nutrients should be the ultimate goal, but it can be achieved in many different ways. Being mindful when it comes to food is key and listening to your body can make the process a lot easier.
