What Is The Best Diet Plan

Jul 1, 2008
Diet plans are most often considered to be effective short-term weight loss solutions, but in the long run they may not be so productive. Diet plans are structured to provide the right amounts of the right kinds of foods for specific conditions and goals. Diet plans are available for vegetarians, people with diabetes, and those who observe kosher dietary laws. First and foremost, dieters must realize that diet plans are not miracles.

A balanced diet with protein and complex carbohydrates, plenty of fruits and vegetables, a decent amount of fiber, and not too much fat is what most people need in a good long-term eating plan. If you eat something that has 10 grams of fat in it, you just ate at least 90 calories. This is also probably the reason why there are so many fat free foods and why people on diets think fat makes them fat.

It just so happens that a gram of fat has more calories in it than a gram of protein or carbs. However, the only thing that makes a person gain fat is when that person is eating more calories than their maintenance level, and then not burning them off through working out.

Protein is responsible for the growth and maintenance of the cells and tissues in our bodies. Protein supplements can help with getting your extra protein if you don't want to eat that much meat. Protein is obtained in nuts, fish, and meat. All of the essential components of a healthy diet are prominent in the Mediterranean, South Beach, and Atikins diet. While questions remain about long-term effects and mechanisms, a low-carbohydrate, high-protein, high-fat diet may be considered a feasible alternative recommendation for weight loss.

In the rankings of five popular weight loss delivery plans by Epicurious magazine reflecting flavor, nutrition, convenience, portion size, variety and similarity to real food, eDiets scored the top spot while Jenny Craig's frozen meals scored next to last. It's a good idea to take a thorough look at the diet plan and arrange it so that foods that hold satiety power and keep you feeling full for hours to come (such as beans, butternut squash, oatmeal and yes, even peanut butter) are part of the daily diet. EDiets also offers a subscription-based nationwide weight loss oriented meal delivery service.

In addition to a digital diet or meal delivery product, ediet subscribers receive access to support offerings, including interactive online information, communities and education, as well as telephone and online support.
