Weight Loss Programs & Diets:

There are a vast amount of weight loss programs and diets available. They all focus on the quality and quantity of the food we eat, and also the amount of exercise that we get.

It is widely recognized by the medical community, to be a mistake to attempt to lose weight too quickly by going on a starvation diet.

Their are two main reasons for this:

  • If you slim too fast, you will be losing not only fat, but also muscle. Then when you eventually start to eat more again, you will put on the fat faster than the muscle.
  • Also, your diet will be so unpleasant, that it will be impossible to sustain it for the long term. So you will basically live out the rest of your days in a cycle of yo-yo dieting - always obssessed with your struggle against food.

Reputable diets like Weight Watchers and NutriSystem guard against this, by ensuring your food intake will give you a sustainable slow but sure path to weight loss.

With Weight Watchers, you have total freedom to eat what you want, as long as you keep the number of points you consume in a certain range based on your current weight and gender. Points are calculated based on the fat and calories in your food.

Some people love this freedom, while others prefer diets with more structure. If you know your next meal is at 7.00 pm, and it is already determined what it will be, then you can just forget about it, and think of something totally different.

However, a pitfall, you may experience, if you have an unstructured diet, is that you may find yourself spending a lot of time planning your next meal, to use your allotted points to their greatest advantage. And the more time you think about food, the more likely you are to start feelings of craving.

This not only makes the dieting process less pleasant, it also increases the chances that you will cheat, or worse, stop the diet completely.

For that reason, more and more people are now choosing a more structured diet such as NutriSystem.

With NutriSystem, you don't have to worry about weighing food, or counting points. You just sit at home, and wait for delicious portion-controlled, prepackaged food to be delivered to you.

NutriSystem have been operating for over thirty years now, and they have helped millions of people lose weight. They offer free telephone and online support, and also free membership.

They offer a very useful free diet analysis on their site, where you answer a few questions online, and they tell you how quickly you can lose your first 5 lbs, how many calories you should eat each day, and the number of weeks it will take you to reach your goal weight.
