To help with weight issues and for overall improved health‚ many people turn to
diets. In fact‚ government statistics show that while about 65 percent of
Americans are overweight‚ 38 percent are actually doing something about it.
And according to a recent survey by the National Health Institute‚ about a third of
overweight Americans who are trying to lose weight‚ are doing so by eating less
carbohydrates (carbs) largely because of the increased popularity of fad diets
like Atkins Diet and the South Beach Diet.
Although there have certainly been other low-carb or low-sugar diet plans before‚
and more will most assuredly come out in the years ahead‚ let's take a look at
the basics behind many of the major plans. And let's take a look at how they fit
into the real world today. Because while it might be great to lower the body's
sugar content and be healthier‚ wouldn't it be great to learn how to do so while
being part of this fast-paced world?
In the world of instant messaging‚ quick Internet interaction and the already
multi-faceted day-to-day hectic schedules‚ dietary food budgeting‚ planning‚
preparing and shopping are issues that can become major sources of stress and
reasons for dieting failure. Dual income families on-the-go and other super-busy
wage earners and dieters often already suffer from more than their share of
everyday stressors like fears of being laid off‚ their jobs being relocated or
terminated‚ juggling more than one job‚ dependents (both elderly and minors)
and trying to fund and juggle continuing education into their lives‚ budgets‚ and
daily routines.
People want and need simpler solutions. And they need simpler dieting plans.
Forget spending mega bucks on gourmet‚ hard-to-find items. Forget spending
hours just to prepare meals. And forget counting‚ measuring‚ and weighing
Either a low-carb plan fit into real-world lives‚ or it doesn't. First we'll take a look
at some basic terms and definitions to help understand the science behind lowcarb
plans. Let's see how many of the major players' plans measure up.
Note that the contents here are not presented from a medical practitioner‚ and
that any and all dietary planning should be made under the guidance of your own
medical practitioners. This content only presents overviews of low-carb research
for educational purposes and does not replace medical advice from a
professional physician.
