Popular Diets - Are They Effective?
There are many diets available for people to utilize during attempts at weight loss and control of disease risk factors. It can be confusing when analyzing all the different aspects of diets as you are trying to choose a diet you can follow.
The most popular diets work on the premise of reducing insulin levels, which enables the body to utilize energy from digested food instead of storing energy as fat. Most of the long term diets that are effective in achieving weight loss work on establishing a healthy diet over many weeks. They may start as restricting carbohydrates with exception of vegetables, however as you get closer to your weight goal, you can start adding in whole grains and complex carbohydrates.
Other popular diets are very restrictive and meant to be adhered to for 1-2 weeks, no more. The weight loss achieved is often due to severe calorie restriction and loss of water weight. These diets are often devoid of essential vitamins and nutrients and require taking supplements daily. They are effective in causing weight loss, however they do not teach or instill healthy eating habits. Because of this, most of the weight lost is quickly regained.
Examples of healthier diets would be the South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers Diet, The Zone Diet, The Mediterranean Diet, and to some extent the Atkins Diet. These diets all limit sugars, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, and to some degree fruit. They work by calorie limitations and insulin control, which in turn, limits fat deposition and encourages fat metabolism.
In the case of Weight Watchers, the creator also felt that the group support helped to reduce the stress of dieting without help and therefor limits rise in cortisol. Cortisol rising is felt to contribute to fat deposition, especially in the abdominal area.
The Mediterranean Diet does allow small amount of wine, emphasizes a wide array of fruits and vegetables as well as healthy oils. It does not necessarily cause weight loss as it is not always calorie restrictive, but it is considered a very healthy diet.
Examples of popular short term diets which I feel are unhealthy include the cabbage soup diet and The Lemonade diet, as well as any other diet which only allows a very limited and select group of foods.
The diets above all have one thing in common- they restrict sugars and simple carbohydrates. In so doing, they tend to limit calories. the initiation phase causes water weight loss which generally equalizes after several days to a week. Slowly adding carbohydrates while evaluating rate of weight loss teaches you about food choices and quantity choices. The important thing to consider when choosing a diet, is how palatable the food in the diet will be for you. You also want to evaluate how much work is involved as this will also determine how easily you stay with the diet.
