Fat, Fads, and Fact

Aug 6, 2008
So you think you need to lose some weight and you want to do it in a hurry; take the easy road. All you have to do is sit down at your computer and type in "diets" and you will finds hundreds of them; they are generally called "fad diets" and some are potentially hazardous to your health. In this email I will try to explain a few of these diets and help you sort out the concepts of how they work.

If you're thinking about trying "The Atkins Diet", you might want to consider what this consists of. You will lose weight and quickly,

This diet definitely let you lose weight but only at the expense of the nutritional value of your food. Thus the diet is not what we can classify as healthy for an individual.

Another fad you may have noticed is the Medifast diet. This diet revolves around drinking shakes and eating things like soup. Whether the products that you can get shipped to your home truly have all of the protein and nutrients you need remains to be seen. This diet is quite high in cost, but you do get a couple of weeks' worth of meals.

A very popular and highly endorsed diet is the "Nutrisystem Diet". A professional dietician decides which meals are best suited for you for the of weight loss you are looking for. These are very effective diets but you have to remember, you can figure out yourself or with your doctor's help, how to eat and lose weight. It just takes a little more effort on your part, but you will save money.

South Beach Diet is another pre-packaged meal program offered to those who want to lose weight. This program is much like the Atkins Diet, where low carb intake seems to be the key to losing a ton of weight fast. These meals can be found in your local grocery aisles, so you don't have to order them and have them shipped to your house.

The "Slim-Fast Diet" has been on the market for a long time. You had the mixture to low or slim fat milk, however, the name is deceiving; "fast"; you shouldn't expect this diet to work if you need to fit into a dress in two weeks.

These are only but a very few of the hundreds of different fads diets on the market. Before you decide to go on any diet, it is best to consult your doctor as to how much weight you need to lose and get his advice on the safest method of doing so. With any diet, you must exercise for best results; this increases your metabolism and helps you to burn stored fat, which is how you lose weight.
