  2. 2. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight In nutrition, diet is the amount of food consumed by a person or other organism. It is often implied the use of specific intake of nutrition for health or weight-management reasons.
  3. 3. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight For weight management diet, it is a particular diet may be chosen to seek weight loss. Changing a subject's dietary intake, or "going on a diet", can change the energy balance and increase or decrease the amount of fat stored by the body. Some foods are specifically recommended, or even altered, for conformity to the requirements of a particular diet. These diets are often recommended in conjunction with exercise.

  8. 8. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight Glycemic Index Diets A glycemic index diet uses the glycemic index to guide your eating plan. The glycemic index diet is neither a low-carb diet nor a low-fat diet, and it doesn't require you to reduce portion sizes or count calories. Rather, its goal is to help you choose the "right" carbohydrates to keep your blood sugar balanced, leading to weight loss and better health.

Cons •Looks strictly at the amount of change the food provokes in blood sugar, not necessarily at the nutritional value of the food. •Leaving you quickly lacking in energy and reaching for another snack.

A low-carb diet is generally used to lose weight. You might choose a low-carb diet because you enjoy the types and amounts of food featured in the diet — or you may believe that a low-carb diet will help you lose weight quickly and easily.
  11. 11. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight Pros •In the short term, low carb dieting can be used to get motivating results. •Ability to burn body fat Cons •Resulting deficiency in micro-nutrients namely Vitamins, Phytonutrients and to a lesser extent some Minerals. •Risk of losing muscle mass
  12. 12. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight Whatever you choose, it takes modifications in behaviour, diet, and activity to succeed at weight loss. It also takes time, patience, commitment, and lots of hard work.
  13. 13. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight There will never be one diet that is the "cure" for everyone. It is possible to lose weight and keep it off, so never give up hope. Instead, find what works best for you right now, and be open to change as you go along.
  14. 14. http://www.healthadviceonline.biz/eattoloseweight Long-term success requires permanent changes in behaviour, diet, and activity.
