How I Used Calorie Shifting Diet To Lose 55 Pounds

There has been a lot of interest and questions asked about the calorie shifting diet recently. It has been the reason for many successful weight loss stories. This article will sum up the main differences between traditional diets and the calorie shifting diet.

1. Why Do Traditional Diets Not Work?

The other most popular diets are the low calorie and low fat diets, both of which I have personally tried before. What happens at first is that I have been able to lose a significant amount of weight, after which the weight loss actually reaches a plateau and pauses.

All About the Atkins Diet

Dr. Robert Atkins originally created the Atkins diet in the 1970’s. The popularity of this low-carb diet reached its zenith about ten years ago, but it is believed that today as many as twenty-five million Americans may be on low-carb diets at any given time.

How Does a Low-Carb Diet Work?

The Atkins diet is based on Dr. Atkins’ theory that the over-consumption of carbohydrates is the root of most people’s problems with weight gain. The body is fueled by sugar, whether it is the natural sugar found in foods or the processed sugar added to many foods. When your body runs out of sugar to use as fuel, it uses carbohydrates instead. Carbohydrates are long chains of sugars, which the body breaks down into sugar. Atkins believes that when people limit the carbohydrates available, they force the body to use its fat reserves as fuel.

Is the New “High-protein Low-saturated Fat” Diet the Answer to Weight Loss?

The heated debate, within diet circles, that began a few years ago and continues today is over the effectiveness of the high-protein, low-carbohydrate, type diet versus its counterpart, the high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet.

To the delight of the Atkins diet enthusiasts, recent studies have suggested that a diet high in protein and low in fat has a greater effect on diet induced thermogenesis (calorie burning) than a high carbohydrate low fat diet.

Before we go further we need to familiarize you with a few terms we will be discussing in this article. Your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) is the total energy your body burns in a day. TDEE consists of 3 components: diet induced thermogenesis (DIT), basal metabolism, and physical activity.

Let’s Talk About Fad Diets

Although the big push for fad diets has died down a little bit, it is still estimated that at least two-thirds of Americans are on some type of diet at any given time. Although research shows the importance of eating from all the major food groups, people are still confused about what type of diet to follow, keeping the window open for more quacky solutions to pop up.

In an effort to help readers determine what makes a diet healthy and when it’s time to steer clear, I am going to discuss what makes a diet a ‘fad’ diet and why these diets are something best to stay away from. Along the way, we will discover what each food group has to offer that can be beneficial to our health.
