Do You Know These Well-Known Dieting Plans?

Mar 13, 2008
There are really a lot of diets. It will be impossible for us to try all of them. However, you do not need to be depressed if you want to lose some weight. There are some more well-known diets which you may try. And this article will focus on these diets.

Atkins Diet

You may have already heard of Atkins diet since a lot of people have already talked about it. There are thousands of articles on this diet and you can easily find a few of them from the search engine. One of the reasons why people are in favor of this diet is that you can eat food which is rich in fat. However, you can probably guess that it may lead to the problem of heart attack. More researches will be need in order to have a solid scientific background for this diet.

Zone Diet

This is also a well-know dieting plan. The idea is to reach a balance of hormone level. And the way to do that is to eat the right mix of foods. This state of balance, which is called the 'Zone', lets the body take in calories and use them through the day without putting anything aside as fat. However, the problem of this plan is that it will not allow some kind of food without any solid scientific reasons. For example, it will not allow you to take starchy vegetables.

Jenny Craig diet

The diet is named after the one who started it - Jenny Craig. The basic concept is that you can get a balance diet if you buy the pre-packaged food from her company. However, it is not something inexpensive. You will need to spend something like $100 per week. Of course the diet is quite good. Yet the fact is that you can get a diet of the same quality if you can stick to some low-calorie foods, which you can buy in the grocery store or supermarket in a much lower price.

South Beach diet

A lot of people have taken this diet and they can lose weight successfully. However, not many people can really stick to the diet. In the he first phase, which will last for two weeks, you will have to eliminate near all food containing carbohydrates. The second phase focuses on a half-hearted return of whole grains and fruits. For this second phase, it will last until you reach your desirable weight. So the problem here is that no many people have the determination to stick to the plan.
