Reasons for Special Diets
You can need special diets for any number of reasons and these can go from medical to just because you want to. Medically needed special diets requires you to stick very closely to your regime and allows almost no deviation from it. If youíre going on a special diet for religious reasons then youíll still need to stick to your diet rigorously but in this case you will be your own supervisor. If you deviate from this diet then it hurts you in a spiritual way with which you will need to come to terms.
For some people this spiritual hurt will bear more weight with them than any physical hurt they might get if they go off their medically required special diets. If youíre already on spiritual special diets and you also need to have medical special diets as well, you might run into some turmoil and conflict. If your body dictates one message but your faith another one, then what can you do? Do you go in for the special diets that will heal you spiritually or do you go in for the special diets that will heal you physically?
Itís a tough question but one that youíve got to answer for yourself. Most times however, a compromise can be reached and you can work out some special diets that will ultimately suit both your physical and spiritual sides.
Then again if you just need medical special diets for whatever it is that ails you, you will have to stick to a strict dietary regime and not deviate from your course. This way only leads to disaster.
If youíre pregnant sometimes you might be needing special diets to suit the needs of the moment. These diets rarely last after youíve delivered your baby, but you might need to be careful about some foods and curtail your diet in some ways thereafter.
The reason that I needed to go in for a range of special diets was for my weight problem. I was overweight and needed to curtail my eating habits. Nothing would work for me, and all the other diets that I went on never seemed to be quite what they said they were. Sure they worked for some time, but after a short while I would go off the diet and gain back weight. By going for special diets I was able to regain my normal weight with a minimum of fuss.
Special diets can work wonders for you if you try them too. No guarantees, and no signed confessions telling you that special diets are what you need most in your life. But if you have a need for it talking over the possibility of getting special diets for yourself with your nutritionist is the first step.
