And what’s more, they all work the same way: by limiting calories.

The only factor that actually contributes to whether or not you lose fat is if you’re in a calorie deficit.

There are a ton of ways you can make this work in your life, but actually it all comes down to 3 things:

  1. You eat fewer calories than you expend. You diet.
  2. You expend more calories than you eat. You exercise.
  3. A combination of these things. Through diet & exercise.

That’s it. Astonishing, isn’t it?

Regardless of which diet you choose to use, that’s how it works. That’s their magic formula: calorie restriction.

They might restrict your calories in different ways though:

  1. By limiting what sorts of foods you can choose to eat.
  2. By limiting what times of the day you can eat.
  3. By limiting how much food you can eat.
  4. By limiting choices about what you eat by making choices for you.

I made an infographic to help clarify this.
