Best lose weight fast diet plan
For decades, those people slightly or heavily overweighed were told by nutritionists and health experts that the best way of getting rid of those unwanted extra pounds was to stick to a long term and steady diet plan. Apparently, losing weight gradually was much better than following any of the more popular and much advertised crash diet plans that offered almost instant weight loss. Diet plans such as the 3 day military diet, the astronaut diet, the cabbage soup diet, the grapefruit diet or the Scarsdale Diet are examples of these nutrition plans that have been traditionally considered not only dangerous but ineffective as well. Medical papers written by nutrition experts have long emphasized the fact that crash diets were the easy but harmful way to shed pounds. From the well known yo-yo effect in which crash dieters quickly gained back their intial weight and even more pounds, to adverse health effects and a reduction in metabolic rate , lots has been said about the … [Read more...] about Crash Diets Under the Microscope: Is Losing Weight Fast Harmful?
Medical herbalist Jenny Logan writes about the benefits - and pitfalls - of intermittent fasting. In my last article I wrote about the many reasons why, in my opinion, simply counting calories leads not to weight loss, but to misery, guilt and anxiety. I suggested instead trying what is often referred to as ‘intuitive eating’. This is basically eating when we are hungry and stopping when we are full, something most of us have lost touch with. This week I am going to look at something I do believe in for long term weight loss – intermittent fasting. This is a very successful weight loss regime which is also linked to reduced blood pressure, lowered cholesterol and balanced blood sugar levels. And before you all think this goes against my anti-calorie counting stance – this type of diet is not about calories counting, it is about relearning hunger, finding out what makes you full and satisfied and hopefully enjoying food. WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING? … [Read more...] about Here is how to use intuitive eating and intermittent fasting to lose weight
Intermittent fasting is currently one of the most talked about eating regimes, thanks in part to Dr Michael Mosley. Six years ago he published the 5.2, a diet under which you rapidly reduce your calorie intake to just 500-600 calories per day on two 'fasting' days and eat normally for the other five. It became very popular. Mosley has just published a new rapid weight loss programme, Fast 800 (Short Books, £8.99), so we caught up with him for the launch to find out how it differs to his previous plans. Part 1: 800 calories per day for at least two weeks The Fast 800 is a three-pronged attack for weight loss. In the initial stage you eat only 800 calories each day for at least two weeks (in some cases longer), he explains, depending on how much weight you want to lose. This time, alongside his book, Mosley has also created the Fast 800 digital lifestyle programme (£99), a 12-week online support plan which allows people to tailor the approach … [Read more...] about Fast 800: Dr Michael Mosley on his new rapid weight loss diet

ByGina Kolata Dec. 10, 2018 You’d think that scientists at an international conference on obesity would know by now which diet is best, and why. As it turns out, even the experts still have widely divergent opinions. At a recent meeting of symposium during which two leading scientists presented the somewhat contradictory findings of two high-profile diet studies. A moderator tried to sort things out. In one study, by Christopher Gardner, a professor of medicine at Stanford, patients were given low-fat or low-carb diets with the same amount of calories. After a year, weight loss was the same in each group, Dr. Gardner reported. Another study, by Dr. David Ludwig of Boston … [Read more...] about What We Know About Diet and Weight Loss
