weight loss diets

In my previous post we looked at 6 common weight loss diets, here are another five I felt deserved consideration.

1. The Pritkin Principle Diet

This diet has been around since the 1970’s and was originally aimed at those with hypertension and diabetes. Fruits, vegetables, pasta, grains, and low-fat dairy are encouraged and protein sources are limited to lean meats, poultry and seafood. Overall, the Pritkin plan encourages a mostly vegetarian diet along with exercise and stress reduction techniques.

2. The Protein Power Diet

If you like meat and cheese, this one might be for you. This is a high protein, potentially high fat, low carb diet. The carbs allowed are of the low sugar variety, mostly vegetables; could be described as a modified Atkins diet. This one could end up being low fiber and too high in saturated fat.

3. Volumetrics

Similar to Eat More Weigh Less, the Volumetrics eating plan is based on the notion that people like to eat, a lot. This plan encourages viewing foods from an energy density perspective and allows fruits, vegetables, pasta, oatmeal, soups, salads, lean meats, poultry, seafood and dairy. High fat food and “dry” foods like crackers, pretzels, and popcorn are restricted. This plan also implements a daily exercise routine of 30-60 minutes.

4. Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers has been popular because it doesn’t have a restricted meal plan, dieters are able to plan their own diet in accordance with a point system. It allots a certain amount of points allowed, daily, from different food categories. Nothing is completely restricted and it may be an easy way for some people to balance their diet.

5. The Zone

The Zone diet is based on the standpoint that inflammation in the body creates ripe conditions for weight gain and disease to flourish. This diet is centered around foods believed to lower inflammation and is high in fruits and vegetables; low fat protein is allowed, grains are totally out. This plan is more than a diet and also incorporates a corresponding supplement and exercise plan further geared at reducing inflammation.
