The Best Weight Loss Programs and Plans - Find Out About Them Online


Are you considering a low carb diet? If so you may be confused as to which low carb diet is the best. There is no easy answer for this question. Low carb diets are high in protein and very low in carbohydrates. Two of the more popular low carb diet programs are the Atkins Diet and the South Beach Diet. Deciding which one is right for you can be quite a challenge. A low carb diet is a great way to lose weight now and experience quick results. Here are brief descriptions of both the Atkins Diet and the South Beach Diet to help you in making your decision.

The Atkins Diet is probably the most well known among low carb diets. The plan begins with a 14-day beginning period in which carbohydrates are limited to twenty grams per day. This begins the fat-burning process. During the fourteen-day induction period you should eat at least three cups of non-starchy vegetables per day. In calculating the number of carbohydrate grams you are consuming, you can deduct the fiber grams from the total carbohydrate grams. For example, if a particular food lists 5g carbohydrates and 2g fibers, subtract the fiber grams from the total carbohydrates, which will leave you with a total net carb count of 3g. After the induction period, you gradually increase the amount of carbohydrates you consume. The Atkins Diet allows you to eat almost unlimited amounts of cheese, meat, butter, nuts, and non-starchy vegetables. There is no need to count calories on the Atkins Diet.

The South Beach Diet is designed to promote good health, with fast weight loss as an added bonus. The South Beach Diet is not a low carb plan or a low fat plan. This diet consists of eating the right carbohydrates and the right types of fats. You will not be required to counts calories or fat grams. Phase one of this diet lasts two weeks in which you will eat meat, poultry, fish, eggs and cheese, and olive oil. You may not consume alcohol, bread, pasta, or sugar. Phase two of the South Beach diet is designed for continuing weight loss. You may add moderate amounts of carbohydrates and even enjoy chocolate occasionally. Phase 3 helps you maintain your new, healthier weight.
You will enjoy the foods you love in moderation and will be well prepared to adhere to this healthier way of eating.

Low carb diets have produced favorable results for millions of people. You can lose weight now and keep it off by living a low carb lifestyle.
