High Protein/Low Carb This type of diet aims to obtain most of the needed amounts of daily calories from protein foods, such as meat, dairy products and eggs, with a tiny part taken from foods containing carbs (bread, pasta, potatoes and fruits). The largest issue with this diet is that most common and popular foods are prohibited, which makes it simple for the user to get bored or discouraged. When boredom and frustration set in, abandoning the plan is not far off. Another issue is the absence of nutrients that are usually taken in with carbohydrate foods, while allowing the user to eat bacon and cheese that raise levels of cholesterol
Problem with High Protein Diet It is true that high protein/low carb diets lead to fast weight loss in some users, but it‟s not only fat that goes away. People also lose some of their lean muscle mass and plenty of water as the kidneys work harder to rid the body of excess waste from fat and protein. The additional stress to your kidneys is not healthy at all and, in the long run, will lead to dehydration, headaches, feelings of nausea and dizziness. Before engaging in a long-term diet, you would do well to discuss it together with your physician. And in the event you are determined on dieting, try a balanced diet first, because it will help you lose weight without hurting your body.
Low-Fat/No-Fat Diet The only low fat foods that are also low in calories are fruits. The remainder of the low-fat or non-fat group are not a safe choice in the event you are dieting. These products may have added sugar, starch or flour to make them taste better, which means additional calories that do not belong in your diet. So make sure you check the list of ingredients on packages whenever you decide to buy low-fat.
Vegetarian Diet No food plan will work for you unless you take charge of your eating and are sure that you are sure that everything that goes past your lips is the right kind of food. The key here is to be absolutely sure that the vegetarian diet will give your body all the nutrients & calories it needs. Eating heaps of foods that do nothing for you from the nutritional point of view, outside of possibly filling your stomach, can bring you lots of trouble in the future.
Vegetarian Diet Problems Since plants tend to have a lower concentration of nutrients than meat, you must eat more food than before to make up for this difference. Not to mention that a strictly vegetarian diet wont get you vitamin B12, vitamin D, iron, calcium & zinc. These substances are taken mostly from dairy products & eggs in a regular diet, but true vegetarians can‟t touch those. You must depend on a few and unfamiliar vegetables that can provide these substances. Dairy products are the main source of calcium that keeps your bones strong & healthy. It is absolutely essential for children and can be in no way overlooked by adults. Dairy products also contain vitamin D, which is crucial to maintaining the normal levels of calcium & phosphorus in your bloodstream.
Dairy Products Research shows that eating lots of dairy products is a surefire path to hypertension & stroke. Whole Fat Milk and whole fat ice cream are the worse offenders. A pint of ice cream has about 600 calories. If you sit in front of the T.V. every night with your friend Mr. Ben & Jerry it will show up on your waist very soon. Avoid whole milk and ice cream and get the low fat type of both. Butter & margarine are the real dairy products you ought to worry about. They do contain massive levels of fat. Still, in case you can‟t do without them, at least eat butter. Margarine is an over-processed fat that is not healthy for you. Butter could be a bit fatter, but it definitely is the healthier of these. In case you want to avoid gaining weight from dairy products, then choose low-fat or non-fat brands. There are many of those around. In case you are lactose- intolerant, drink soy or rice milk. It does not taste the exact same as true milk, but it‟s still lovely & nourishing. Try Almond or Rice milk they taste great. Dairy products are the main source of calcium that keeps your bones strong & healthy. It is absolutely essential for children and can be in no way overlooked by adults. Dairy products also contain vitamin D, which is crucial to maintaining the normal levels of calcium & phosphorus in your bloodstream
Fad DietsThe cornerstone of any diet is supplying the body with all thecalories, proteins and minerals it needs.

Fad diets fail to deliver on the promise ofpermanent weight loss because people will always crave theprohibited foods and will always end up breaking the rulesand ditching the diet. The key to making weight loss permanent is more exercise and to keep away from eating food that makes you overweight without nourishing your body. Our extensive studies confirmed the importance of exercising and of a well-balanced diet.

HCG Diet Products Are Illegal HCG Makes Big Claims HCG is a hormone that is produced by the human placenta during pregnancy. Products that claim to contain HCG are typically marketed in connection with a very low calorie diet, usually one that limits calories to 500 per day. Many of these popular HCG products claim to “reset your metabolism,” change “abnormal eating patterns,” and shave 20-30 pounds in 30-40 days. “These products are marketed with incredible claims and people think that if theyre losing weight, HCG must be working,” says Elizabeth Miller, acting director of FDA‟s Division of Non-Prescription Drugs and Health Fraud. “But the data simply does not support this; any loss is from severe calorie restriction. Not from the HCG.” HCG is approved by FDA as a prescription drug for the treatment of female infertility, and other medical conditions. It is not approved for weight loss. In fact, the prescription drug label notes there “is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or „normal‟ distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.” For more information go to http:www. fda.gov/HCGdiet
