Some interesting about lost weight
Millions of people in North America are overweight, and many of those are obese. Nearly all overweight people do want to lose their extra pounds, both for cosmetic and for health reasons, and there are plenty of diet programs out there to allegedly help these people meet their goals: low-carb, low-fat, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Atkins, South Beach, liquid…the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, with this abundance of choice comes a scarcity of healthy, sustainable programs. Are diet programs worth it, or is the old standby — the combination of a reduced-calorie diet and exercise — the best choice?
The benefits of diet regimens will vary from program to program. All of them, however, do provide a basic framework for users to follow. Eat this, not that; eat this much, at this time; follow the step-by-step process and you will succeed. This detailed instruction can take a lot of the guesswork out of planning meals, helping people stay motivated toward their goals.
These diets are also attractive because they often allow people to indulge on occasion, giving dieters the best of both worlds: weight loss and tasty treats. Some diets allow people to eat nearly anything they’d like, as long as they follow some restrictions. This can also increase the sustainability of the dieter’s efforts, helping them achieve their goals.
Though some of these diets work, many are simply unhealthy and unsustainable. Low-carb diets may result in low-energy lives; liquid and other extreme diets essentially amount to self-starvation, doing nothing but lowering the body’s metabolism and resulting in no permanent weight loss. Many people, desperate for change, jump from diet to diet, fad to fad, hoping for the magic bullet that never comes.
In addition, some dieters forget the other crucial ingredient for weight loss: exercise. A diet alone may help burn fat, but it will not produce a healthy, attractive body on its own. Furthermore, “thin” doesn’t equate to “healthy” if body systems, especially the heart and the circulatory system, are not fit.
In the end, the benefits and drawbacks will depend on the specific program. Most people, though, would be well-served by following the tried-and-true advice: eat less, exercise more. As always, anyone embarking on a new diet program should consult their doctor before beginning this significant lifestyle change.

Raw food diets come in three variations: vegan, vegetarian and Paleolithic (popularly referred to as the “caveman” diet). Proponents of the raw food diet believe that foods cooked above 116°F lose nutritional value, impede digestion and may actually be harmful to health. Vegan raw food diets typically prohibit animal products and focus on fruit and […]
Everyone knows that the key to weight loss is calorie reduction: the fewer calories you eat, and the more you burn, the more weight you’ll lose. Thus, diets that severely restrict calorie intake seem like a great idea on the surface. One example of this program is a liquid diet. Liquid diets partially or entirely […]
One of the latest diet crazes is the low-carb, high-protein diet. Proponents of this program claim that carbohydrates are the main cause of weight gain due to their effects on appetite and metabolism. High-protein diet supporters claim that carbohydrates cause swings in blood sugar that can stimulate overeating. To suppress the appetite, they suggest dieters […]
When people hear the word detox, they instantly believe that it must be something good. After all, eating raw vegetables and drinking water have always been backbones of good health. The popular belief is that people are inundated every day with harmful chemicals that could cause disease in the body, and detox diets are thought […]
