Diets have appeared in many different forms, especially fad
diets. Among the problems with these fad diets is that as well
as often leaving you feeling very hungry they can also be
unhealthy and only work for a short space of time. Research
indicated that the most effective diets are those that can be
adhered to over long periods of time. In the case of fad
weight tends to be very erratic and while you may lose weight
initially it is not unusual to put that weight back on and
eventually increase your weight.
One of the huge benefits of a low carb diet is that you do not
need to feel hungry. This may seem like it avoids the point of
a diet, but it doesn’t. The aim of dieting is not to eat less
but to lose weight or eat more healthily. The most famous of
all low carb diets is the Atkins diet and this remains popular
because it allows you to eat good-sized meals and is proven to
help you lose weight.
The basics of a low carb diet are that you can eat as much
as you like until you are full, as long as you only eat the
allowed foods. Generally speaking, this includes meat, cheese,
fish, eggs and poultry. You are also allowed a certain amount
of green vegetables each day. As well as being a healthy way
lose weight, a low carb diet will give you a sustained weight
loss meaning you can continue to lose weight even after the
initial push and you will keep the weight off once it is gone.
It will also lower your cholesterol and blood pressure as well
as stabilize your blood sugar level. You should supplement a
low carb diet with multi vitamins because your body will
partially starved of these essential vitamins.
