We continually hear about the latest and “greatest” diet
You know….the one that will make
you lose a ton of weight quickly like the shock diet: https://www.healthform.org/the-shock-diet/.
live in a time when over sixty percent of the population is overweight, and
that isn’t just with adults.
rates are higher than ever among children and teens.
As a result, we are not only an overweight
nation; we are also reaping the consequences of a supersized mindset. As many of you know, I am an advocate of a
clean eating diet. The foods I eat are
as close to nature as possible and contain only ingredients that I am able to
pronounce. This information is just a
simple comparison of several different diet plans and their pro’s and
con’s. Although I drink Shakeology
shakes regularly, I do that because of the healthy ingredients it
contains. I whole-heartedly encourage
and embrace a clean eating lifestyle and firmly believe that is the “secret” to
a healthy weight.
The nation is starved for successful weight loss programs,
and the weight loss industry knows this and that is why there are so many
different weight loss programs that promise to help people lose weight and get
into shape. Many of these programs do
work and others do not work so well.
Some of the programs work faster than others making them a popular
choice, while others work slow and steady.
There are advantages and disadvantages to the various weight loss
programs and they all compare differently.
The important thing to remember though, is that that the secret to
losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight is to create a healthy lifestyle
made up of healthy habits. A diet isn’t
something you just do for a while, it’s an ongoing way of life but does not
have to be restrictive or difficult.
Nutrisystems is a weight loss program that is all about
portion control. The meals are
prepackaged and consist of a variety of different selections. The meals can be sent to you automatically or
purchased in a store. The meals are low
calorie and help in losing weight.
However, there is a downfall to the program; the prepackaged meals
contain a lot of sodium. In addition,
many people do not find the prepackaged meals tasty. Finally, many people gain their weight back
because it is difficult to go from the prepackaged portions to regular food.
Slimfast is a diet of healthy shakes. These premade shakes come in a few different
flavors and although they contain a lot of vitamins and minerals, they do not
contain all the nutrients that regular food has, and mainly, lacks
antioxidants. Most people will drink a
shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch and then a sensible meal for
dinner. The shakes do work, and people
have lost weight, however, people have found that it is difficult to keep up
the shake regime. Many people resort to
snacking, and even eating along with the shake which results in weight gain.
The Atkins diet is a diet that is all about meat! While it is generally good to eat your
protein first, and, eat protein over carbohydrates, the Atkins diet excludes
carbohydrates which is an essential source of energy for our bodies. However, many people have found that the
Atkins diet worked well and delivered the results they wanted to see. The down fall with this diet, once you
achieve your goal weight and resume eating, you will gain the weight back. Another concern with the Atkins diet is
eating too much meat, pork and fatty foods is just unhealthy, high in cholesterol
and not good.
The Weight Watchers program is another successful weight
loss program. Although the weight does
not come off as fast as the above-mentioned diet programs, the weight does come
off. The Weight Watchers program is
successful because it is a balanced diet.
With Weight Watchers, you eat the recommended daily requirements and
avoid snacks. With Weight Watchers, you
keep track of you points, not calories.
Each food, or food item has a specific amount of points and men and
women stay within their daily allotment of points to lose weight. The biggest benefit of Weight Watchers is you
are not restricted to their food.
Although Weight Watchers does have a line of food products that make it
very helpful, you do not have to use their food. Weight Watchers teachers you how to eat, and
once you reach your goal weight, you have learned how to eat healthy and make
the right food choices.
If you are going to jumpstart weight loss by using a plan,
you have to remember that there are pros and cons to each plan. If you are not learning to eat properly, once
you are off the diet, you will most likely gain the weight, and more back. In addition, you do not want to forgo
nutrients and many of the processed prepackaged foods do not have all the
vitamins and minerals needed. The ideal
way to lose weight is to eat real, unprocessed foods with a good balance of
carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats.
This is known as clean eating and is easily maintainable throughout your
Have you tried any of these diets or weight loss plans? What has worked for you?
