Don’t Eat Low Fat
Low-fat diets have officially been dismissed by all research evidence. Healthy fats actually promote weight loss, and some fats are good for the heart; eliminating them from the diet can cause problems.
Low Carb Diets DO NOT WORK
Eating carbohydrates — especially highly processed ones like white bread and white rice — quickly boosts blood sugar, which triggers an outpouring of insulin from the pancreas. The surge of insulin can rapidly drop blood sugar, causing hunger. Low-carb proponents claim that people who eat a lot of carbohydrates take in extra calories and gain weight. Limiting carbs in favor of protein and fat is supposed to prevent the insulin surge and make you feel full longer.
To make up for the lack of carbohydrates in the diet, the body mobilizes its own carbohydrate stores from liver and muscle tissue. In the process, the body also mobilizes water, meaning you are losing “water weight.” The result is rapid weight loss, but after a few months, weight loss tends to slow and reverse.
The American Heart Association cautions people against following the Atkins diet because it is too high in saturated fat and protein, which can be hard on the heart, kidneys, and bones. The lack of carb-rich fruits and vegetables is also no good, because eating these foods tends to lower the risk of stroke, dementia, and certain cancers.
