Our low-carb diets healthy
diet and weight loss disclaimer
The aim of this article is just to compare and contrast some of the conflicting dietary advice that is available
I quote short excerpts and try to summarize the essence of some of the more popular diets
The selections are from books and websites that are quite lengthy
but I have taken the most pertinent information from each source and used it in this article in no way should
Anyone use information within this article to determine their own dietary requirements or weight loss program
You should always check with a suitably qualified
Practitioner preferably your doctor before embarking on any significant dietary change
This article merely highlights the difficulty in deciding which is the best diet
It does not set out to promote any particular diet over another
List of low carb diets before we consider whether low carb diets are healthy
It’s probably useful to define what we mean by low carb diets
Here’s a list of just a few of the diets that could be considered low carb or controlled carb or low glycemic index
the Atkins diet
zero carb diet
paleo, diets zowie harcum diet that you can diet the primal blueprint the South Beach diet
low GI diet
glycemic load diet archieve or diet
Dr. John Griffis escaped the diet trap
This list just skims the surface there are hundreds of diets that focus on lowering
carbohydrate intake or controlling
Carbohydrates or that advocate low glycemic index load foods, but should low GI
GL diets and primal diets be considered part of the low carb spectrum
I believe they should it might be more accurate to use the term controlled carb diets
the one thing that all of these diets have in common is that they promote the control of sugar and
carbohydrate intake low carb low GI
Low GL or primal the reason I think it’s reasonable to consider all these diets together. Is that there?
No consensus about the best way to eat for health or to control weight. That is quite a damning statement
We put a man on the moon over 40 years ago. We have mapped the human genome. We have discovered the so-called god particle
But we still don’t know which diet we should follow
It is in the interests of governments the medical profession and the powerful food industry to maintain the status quo
governments want to maintain the status quo because their
Reputations would be further eroded if they had to announce that all the dietary advice
They have provided over many years was erroneous the medical profession
Establishment is compromised similarly
Then we have what I will call medical profession pioneers such pioneers include all the doctors that author diet books
These pioneers probably start off with good intentions
But once they have published a book they are wedded to a position and this makes it difficult to accept research that
Contradicts their best-selling work unless of course
This contradiction can be turned into an opportunity to write another bestseller
The food industry makes its money from selling processed foods
these foods are cheapest to make when their main ingredients are sugars carbohydrates and
Additives they’re for the food industry
Spends millions lobbying governments around the world to maintain the current advice of balanced meals with a high carbohydrate content
The result is unsatisfactory as the government
Nutritionists the medical profession and the food industry stick to their mantra of consume fewer calories
Exercise more and everything in moderation
This is challenged by research as some medical professionals and some
Enterprising medical journalists have claimed that a low-carb high-fat diet that focuses on the consumption of healthy fats is the key to controlling
Weight and living healthily the following table illustrates the problem
I have compared the government advice to three leading alternatives three alternative diets
The Zoe harcum diet. I have a copy of Zoe Harkins. Excellent book. Stop counting calories start losing weight
There are three stages
Stage one kick starts for weight loss and helps wean you off
Foods that you are likely to be addicted to and this stage is where you severely restrict carbohydrates
apart from 50 grams brown rice day
But this stage lasts only five days in stage two
There are three simple rules to follow avoid processed foods
Do not eat carbs and fats at the same meal and do not eat foods that cause food carvings
Which you identified in stage one by following the rules in stage two
You should lose weight
But not as fast as in stage one when you have reached your target weight you progress to stage three
Which in a nutshell is the same as stage two
But you work out how much you can cheat without putting weight back on
I have tried to summarize Zoe Harkins dietary advice in the table below
column Z h1 and z h2
Dr. John Griffis, escape the diet trap. This is a non diet diet book
Dr. Brad vaq
‘it’s that we should eat the sort of foods that sustained our primal
ancestors for the vast majority of the time that human beings have existed in general
This means cutting out processed foods sugars and grain-based foods and eating more animal fats and protein
cebra in the table below
The Archlord diet this based on advice given. Dr. Curt Harris MD on his blog arch of or calm
Dr. Harris defines an arch or as someone who eats based on essential principles and also someone who hungers for essential
Principles I like dr. Harris’s approach
He says that his blog is just the opinions of someone who has spent a lot of time reading and thinking about nutrition
I also like the fact that he does not seem to have a book to sell
