Good diets to die for

When you think about it, most diets are aimed to deprive the body of certain nutrition in order to receive weight loss. They are geared towards people who do not know how to consume food properly and effectively to achieve a thinner image.

While there have been many trendy diets throughout the years, do any of them really work? The answer is no.

The majority of people who diet end up quitting and falling back into their old eating habits. This results in rapid weight gain, and sometimes a person can gain more weight than previously lost.

Some trendy diets that have been popular over the years are the Atkins diet, the Cookie diet, Special K diet, the soup broth diet, and no-fat diet.

These diets exclude major food groups that are important for good health and nutrition. They can sometimes be unsafe and cause negative results.

The Atkins diet excludes carbohydrates, which are our body’s main source for fuel and energy. Simple and refined sugars like candy and certain juices are something to limit, but whole grain products like pasta, rice, and bread contain nutrients that are vital to our health.

The Atkins diet also emphasizes high animal and fat consumption, which can cause changes in our metabolic health. Not just the Atkins diet, but any diet that severely limits carbohydrate consumption is unsafe and does not result in healthy weight loss.

Other diets that eliminate certain food groups such as fat are also unsafe for the body. Fat is needed for essential bodily functions, maintenance, and energy.

Although fat is needed for the body, types of fat are what needs to be monitored the most. For example; eliminating trans fats entirely from your diet is healthy; eliminating monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are bad.

These fats are important for numerous processes, such as heart and brain functions. Unlike carbohydrates, they are something that don’t need to be consumed in high amounts.

Too much fat can be bad for one’s health, especially when coming from high fat animal products. Such products include: sausage, dark meats, whole milk, and cheese.

When choosing these products to eat try finding leaner cut meats and low-fat products such as: turkey and chicken (white meat), 1 percent milk, non-fatty fish such as salmon and tuna and cottage cheese.

Some non-animal products, which are high in good fat, are nuts, seeds, olive oil, and soy products.

When wanting to lose weight, remember to not eliminate food groups and to just eat in moderation. Don’t eliminate food groups because they’ll just create stronger cravings and make eating less enjoyable.

A healthy weight loss goal is, at most, one to two pounds per week. If you are losing more than that, take a look at what you are eating along with your eating pattern.

Losing more than one to two pounds is not realistic and is usually associated with unhealthy eating behaviors.

When you follow a healthy eating lifestyle and lose only 1-2 pounds per week, it results in maintenance of weight loss and healthier weight in the long run.

  24. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  25. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  31. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
