South Beach Diet The Review Diaries
The Review Diaries
There are masses of carbohydrate diets like the Atkins Diet and The Zone. Now Hamptons diet meets South Beach. I think most of us know the reason for it's creative principle of lowering cholesterol for Dr A`s patients and those with diabetes.
The diets regimen is based on the consumption of complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean fats and proteins. It eliminates simple carbohydrates almost entirely (sweets, pasta, most bread, etc.) and aggressively restricts carbohydrate consumption during the weight loss phase of the diet, similar to Atkins.
This type of diet is simply going to lower caloric intake for those who follow it, consequently weight loss. I still think calories count, although you can eat what you want from the allowed foods list, if you overtake in calories....well, some experience no weight loss. However over time you're hunger will subside and you will then naturally take in a less amount of food.
The book does focus on decreased carbohydrate consumption in a healthier manner, but the book falls into the trap of marketing itself in a similar manner as all fad diets.
They clearly know what appeals to desperate, overweight people and they use the common buzzwords in this business such as, "lose weight fast", "13 Pounds in 2 weeks", "cravings were gone", "never unsatisfied." Overly optimistic claims are certainly dubious when lasting weight loss is difficult, as we all know.
It is essential. And this diet makes diet sense. It is easy to follow; some find it hard finding the low fat ricotta cheese, but other than that it is a simple plan for regular people and not geared toward the fitness enthusiastic of sorts.
Keep in mind once you reach your goal you can have your loved wanted sweet foods (not so healthy foods) in moderation. At that point once you reach your goal, only then should you dibble into the cakes, etc, remember moderation is key.
It takes dedication and adding some source of exercise into the program just helps to build you metabolism.
