Popular Diets – Great Ways to Lose Weight and Maintain Your Perfect Body Shape For a Long Time

If you check it out, you may find that almost everyone is following some dieting guideline or another, while others are planning to introduce popular diet fads into the world. Many people are on diets, but they aren’t sure if it will actually work for them, while others who are on diets are living testimonies of the fantastic effects of dieting. Many who are obese or overweight are always trying some new diet or another, to lose weight and stay healthy. There are several types of popular diets that have been proven to be effective in losing weight. Let’s look a few of the more popular diets that many people are trying.

The Atkins Diet

The Atkins diet is also called the “low carb” diet and it became popular in 1972 when Dr. Atkins published his first book on Nutritional Approach. This particular diet was designed to make you lose weight fast, however, if you are not careful, then the weight will return after a period of time. This diet is one of the most popular diets today, but it’s a very controversial subject, as many have complained of heart problems and kidney damage due to following the guidelines of this diet.

The Medifast Diet

The Medifast diet is another popular one, mainly because the food comes pre-packed and therefore all you need to do is microwave and eat the food. In this diet, you will forgo complicated food preparations and you will get a wide selection of different types of meals for all your meal servings which includes snack bars, eggs, soups, cold and hot drinks and even puddings; to give you a few examples. The reason why Medifast is so popular is because it will guide you from one level to another until you have reached your dream weight.

The Paleo Diet

Certainly a diet fad! The emphasis is on the kind of food that people ate ages ago, like in the days of the ancient cave men or people who inhabited forests. This diet allows you to eat foods like nuts, roots, meat and fish, while you are not allowed to eat grains, dairy, salt and sugar. Even though Anthropologists have dismissed claims of its effect, there are some who have testified to its contribution to help them lose weight. (Come to think of it anyone would lose weight if they abstain from sugar.)

The South Beach Diet

This particular diet was designed by a Dietician and a Heart Specialist. It also increased in popularity due to its intended purpose of preventing cardiovascular diseases. This diet consists of three stages with a central objective of replacing all the bad fatty acids with good fatty acids. Even though each stage will allow you to eat certain foods until you reach your ideal weight, the problem is, it doesn’t last long, mainly because the weight creeps right back on.

All these popular diets are only effective in helping you maintain your perfect weight, if you continue to eat those healthy natural fresh foods in moderate portions. If you are on a popular diet be certain to set realistic goals. Also, you will need to practice sensible eating habits to get that shape that you have always desired.

6 Reasons Why Popular Diets And Sex Make For Successful Weight Loss

You can achieve real weight reduction, by incorporating sex as a form of physical exercise, with any of the major popular diets on the market today to see weight loss results. There has been a fair amount of research done (go figure) on this topic and the conclusions point to the fact that there are many benefits to including sexual activity into your overall weight loss. And medical research bears this claim out when you look at these 6 reasons at to why making sex a mainstay exercise, when combined with the most popular diets on the market can support your weight loss goals.

Sex is Good Exercise – Stated simply sex helps to burn calories because of the physical nature of the activity. As with any aerobic exercise your heart rate increases and the longer you are engaged in the process (and who doesn’t love that) the more calories you will burn. Those that are slightly more adventurous in terms of changing into different positions more frequently can actually build muscle, which also burns calories. To be clear you are not going to turn into an Olympic athlete simply by having sex, but engaging in sexual activity is very good complementary exercise to an overall physical fitness routine.
Sex Makes You Feel Good – Before you say “Thank You Captain Obvious” hear me out. A satisfying sexual experience (however one defines that) usually puts most people in a better mental state. And when you feel better about yourself it is easier to focus on trying to be healthier, including concentrating on weight loss. Incorporating sex into your overall physical fitness routine is a good way to complement a diet

and exercise plan because the better you feel and the happier your mood is, the easier it is to reach your goal.
You’ll Be Motivated to Eat More Healthfully – If you have decided to lose some amount of weight and have looked at any of the popular diets that can provide real results, increasing your sexual activity will keep you focused on eating properly. Several people I have worked with on weight loss programs use sex as a personal reward. So, for example, if they were able to stick to their diet and exercise plan on a particular day they rewarded themselves accordingly. If not, they abstained until meeting their goal the next day. Doing this serves as a very real and powerful motivator to stay on track (assuming your partner is supportive of this approach).

When You Are Alone You Eat More – One of the challenges in following any of the popular diets that focus on tracking what you specifically eat, is not straying off a defined meal plan. That can be hard to do when you are alone as most people have a tendency to eat more when they are by themselves. I am not suggesting being with someone will guarantee you will lose weight. But it does improve your chances of staying on a diet as they can serve to remind you to stay on your plan.
Stress Reduction – Simply engaging in sex is a great stress reliever both in terms of physical exercise as well as through our body’s release of endorphins which happens during orgasm. That has the immediate effect of feeling good physically. Less stress can also keep you more motivated to stay with a diet and exercise plan over the long term.
You Partner Will Support Your Weight Loss Goals – We all need support when losing weight. Simply telling your husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, or partner of your weight loss goal and your need of their active participation as part of your exercise routine is bound to get their involvement, and that’s a good thing
When you are considering popular diets for weight loss, keep in mind the role that exercise plays in helping you reach goals and consider sex a useful and fun addition to any diet and exercise plan.
