Comparison of Leading Diets

Diet, it’s a word that you probably hear every day, either on the news, online or from someone you know. If you’re over the age of 30, you’ve probably tried several diets yourself, hopefully with some success but most likely not. Millions of people a year start a new diet and millions of people a year don’t continue it for long.

Why is that? Why are diets so difficult for people? Could it be that diets are just too complicated? Or perhaps too restricting? In this article we take a look at three of today’s popular diets, otherwise known as weight loss programs or lifestyle changes. The three diets we’re going to discuss are the Atkins Diet, The South Beach Diet, and Weight Watchers.

The Diet Craze

That little bikini in the back of your bottom dresser drawer is calling your name. The sun is shining, the kids are begging for a trip to the beach, but the idea of putting on a bathing suit makes you about as excited as the idea of spending the day scrubbing toilets. You are not alone. In 2003, 65% of U.S. citizens tried some form of weight loss or weight control. But the idea of weight-loss is daunting to anyone, especially with the ever-increasing number of weight-loss plans, online diets and magic pills that make the weight vanish while you sleep (wouldn’t that be nice?).

Low Carbohydrate Diet Revolution — A History

Most people think of the Atkins diet when they hear the phrase low-carb. Indeed, Dr. Robert C. Atkins is the author of a number of low carbohydrate ketogenic diet books. The first one was published in 1972, and his pioneering efforts revolutionized the dieting world we see today. For everything that you hear; however, Dr. Atkins did not create low-carb dieting.

Don’t Be Confused About Low Carb Diets – 7 Key Points Explained

With all of the conflicting studies and fuzzy interpretation of

information, it’s no wonder that confusion reigns when it comes

to the value and safety of low-carb diets. It seems like heated

debates are raging everywhere!

Whether it’s Atkins, the South Beach or some other low-carb plan,

as many as 30 million Americans are following a low-carb diet.

Advocates contend that the high amount of carbohydrates in our

diet has led to increasing problems with obesity, diabetes, and

other health problems. Critics, on the other hand, attribute

obesity and related health problems to over-consumption of

calories from any source, and lack of physical activity. Critics

also express concern that the lack of grains, fruits, and

vegetables in low-carbohydrate diets may lead to deficiencies of

some key nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, folic acid, and

several minerals.

THE 200 POINT SYSTEM

With so many different diets available, how are we to know what works and what is safe? The only way to be sure is to discover the author’s background and the research behind the diet’s methodology. Every good diet should give a background about the author and his/her credentials and experience in the fields of nutrition and biochemistry.

However, even a vast resume does not mean a credible and safe diet. But it does suggest, at least, that the author has

some knowledge of nutrition. Providing research behind the diet proves that the diet is not something the author invented, so long as the research is not self-serving and altered to fit a hypothesis.
