A recent article published in Journal of American Medical Association showed that adherence to diet and not the specific diet is the most important determinant of weight loss and reduction on cardiovascular risk.
Whether you are following the Atkins Diet or the South Beach Diet or the other fad diets like: Ornish, Zone or the Weight Watchers… the amount of weight loss was essentially the same after 1 year. What was noted was that most participants did not continue to follow their diets within 1 year resulting in only modest weight loss. But those who continue to follow their diet had the greatest weight loss. The study also proved that Low Carb Diets are NO BETTER than any other diets in terms of weight loss.
The study concludes that to improve patient acceptance to a certain dietary manipulation… it should be matched to the individual’s lifestyle, food preference and disease risk profile like if he’s a diabetic, or has a family history of heart disease.
It is therefore advised that physicians managing obese individuals should teach these patients that before starting on a FAD Diet…Consider…if it Suits You! Or if it’s a diet that you can continue for the rest of your life!
Remember… To be successful in adhering to a Diet…consider that The Quality and Quantity of the Diet are Important!
The Key to A Successful Weight Loss Diet is …
A Diet You Can Adhere To For
The Rest Of Your Life!
