Diets have appeared in many different forms, especially fad diets. Among the problems with these fad diets is that they leaving you feeling very hungry, can be unhealthy, and only work for a short period of time. Research has indicated that the most effective diets are those that can be adhered to over long periods of time.
In the case of fad diets, weight tends to be very inconsistent, 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.
The purpose of dieting is not to eat less, but to lose weight, or eat more healthy foods. 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 food as you like until you are full, as long as you only eat the allowed foods. Generally speaking, this includes lean meat, low-fat cheese, fish, white eggs, and poultry (skinless).
You are also allowed a certain amount of green vegetables each day. As well as being a healthy way to 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.
