Which Diet is Best?
the diet that works for you
Almost anyone who's on a diet is convinced his or her plan is the best. One will swear by low-carb plans, such as Atkins; another will say low-fat is the way to go.
With nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults deemed overweight, the bottom line is the right weight-loss plan for you is the one that works and that you can stay with it as long as it's nutritionally sound.
Many types of diets can work in terms of helping you shed pounds, but there are benefits and drawbacks to every diet, depending on how each works. Knowing those pros and cons can help you decide your best weight-loss path.
Why low carb diets works, is that you are reducing your calories. But because it is low in carbohydrates and high in protein and fat, you feel less hungry so compliance to the diet is much greater than to a high-carb diet.
Limiting carbohydrates can also reduce insulin production. This can be important to people with weight problems who are prone to a condition called metabolic syndrome, which can lead to diabetes. Low-carb diets tend to decrease insulin levels and increase insulin sensitivity," which aids in weight-loss.
But there are downsides to limiting carbohydrates. People on such diets tend to feel tired because they lack the quick source of energy provided by carbohydrate-rich foods such as bread and pasta and fruits such as apples and bananas.
Low-fat diets, on the other hand, automatically limit calories because each gram of fat has 9 calories, compared to just 4 calories for each gram of protein or carbohydrate. But low-fat, high-carb plans tend to make you feel less satisfied and dieters on these plans complain of hunger. Following a low-fat plan does reduce cardiovascular disease risk because it can lower blood cholesterol levels.
Regardless of what path you choose, anytime you have calorie reduction, no matter how small or large, you will see weight reduction, although that weight loss may take some time. It's also a good idea to get more physical activity -- with your doctor's OK. Whether your diet is high-carb or low-carb fans, begin by cutting portion sizes and cutting out sugar. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
Have an excellent day.
