By making each person's diet is based on the amount of activity and body fat percentage, Sears with a very scientific system thrusting 40-30-30 needed by everyone, he also explained that all the food we eat is in the "block". Once you have been able to calculate a unique combination of "block" you, then every time you eat, your food should be in accordance with the "block" it. That way, the body will show petorma peak (the Zone).

The body will issue a maximum energy plus lose weight. Sears is very rigid in applying the system of counting calories and nutritional composition. So according to him, If you try to make it simple, you may not actually be in the Zone. Some people are successful in this way will probably enjoy the stiffness.

The principle of Okinawa diet called Nuchi Cusui refers to the balance of three things: high-carbohydrate, low calorie and originate in plants, this diet first glance similar to the food pyramid diet recommended by the United States (U.S. Daily Allowance). However Nuchi Gusui clearly divide between food should be eaten every day by which should only be eaten every week. Thus it would be easier for you to find out if you often eat certain foods or not.

  • Use less common canola oil, the price is also relatively more expensive than palm oil.

Shout Beach Diet
Known as the inventor Agatson SBD are from Miami Florida, an area synonymous with beautiful beaches, fashion, good food and beautiful women like in the series Baywatch. Initially, Agatston make this diet to benefit heart disease patients. But apparently given diet also lost weight to his patients up to 6 pounds in 2 weeks. As a result, people flocked to join practice.

Agatston initial reason for making this diet because he saw the traditional way to lose weight, either by reducing fatty foods or foods high in carbohydrates is often not successful. He then created his own diet, which emphasizes the reduction of carbohydrate consumption. Because overweight is generally caused by excessive consumption of carbohydrates, which will increase blood sugar levels. Style diet touted copying Atkins diet because they both suggest limiting your intake of carbohydrates and protein and fat consumption.

but there are fundamental differences between the Atkins diet with this SBD. Agatston recommends his followers to stay away from saturated fats and advised to consume monounsaturated fats like olive oil and omega 3 fatty acids found in fish. This is not done by Atkins.

Broadly speaking, the South Beach Diet is divided into three stages. The first stage is the most rigorous stage, lasted for two weeks. Pretty heavy, but if you run discipline, Agatston promises this diet can lose weight up to 6.5 kg. You are allowed to consume lots of vegetables, meat, beans, cheese and eggs. However, you must temporarily menjahui high sugar content foods and fatty foods, like bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, noodles or fried foods from flour, sugar, candy, or sweet fruit.

This phase is intended to eliminate the habits you eat carbohydrates or sweet foods in excess. In this way, your desire for sweet tasting foods that will be lost completely gradual. Your weight will be going down quite a lot, approximately 4.6 kg. and most of the lost weight comes from fat that accumulates in the abdomen.

Although impressed by weight, in fact at this stage you need not fear going hungry. You can still eat 3 times a day with enough servings. In fact you can still eat a snack in the morning and afternoon, as long as the food consumed is not excessive or against the rule base. There is also no prohibition to drink coffee and tea. You can still eat dessert after dinner.
In the second stage, you can more freely consume a variety of foods. Tapai all kept in reasonable portions. If you like rice, you can come back to eat it. Once the premises are also fruits. You can even eat chocolate, though of course you have to choose the type of chocolate that is not too fattening, such as dark chocolate, with no additional nuts and caramel.

At this stage, your weight will continue to decline, which is about 0.5 to 1 kg a week. Long this phase depends on the amount of weight loss you want. Once achieved, you can directly go to step 3. which is the last stage and the most liberal in this diet, Stage 3 is only intended to keep the weight you are always in the ideal position, because you will continue to be followed for a lifetime. Although there may be can happen when you are a little complacent or bored having lived many years, you can still go back to repeat step 1 During the two weeks. Then, you can continue
to step 3.

With this diet you can still eat well, but your weight will continue to fall. This diet will also improve cardiovascular health while reducing the waist circumference is only with a little perseverance. Agatston says your weight will shrink between 4-6.5 in the first 2 weeks. After that, you can back it down as much as 1 kg per week, so continue until you reach your ideal weight. This diet also makes you desire to chew sweet and carbohydrate-rich foods will disappear by itself.

This diet seems to support the ideas of weight loss that has been tried, such as reducing the excess sugar, processed foods and the consumption of lean meat. According to conventional nutrition experts, the actual success you lose weight using this diet because this diet is low in calories, not because you reduce the consumption of carbohydrates.

Down But Jackson, a dietitian from the American Dietetic Association, said that this diet really can help people lose weight, and in addition helps to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, risk of heart attack, cancer and other chronic diseases. This is because the diet is rich in fish oil, fiber and antioxidants, and rich in 'good fats' such as monounsaturated fat, and low in bad fats like trans fats or hydrogenated oils. Jackson said if he recommends the menu at stage 2 and 3 because it is rich in whole grains, protein and low fat dairy products, as well as vegetables and fruits.

The main drawback is that the majority of food comes from meat and dairy products, so there is little choice if you are allergic to milk or a vegetarian. In the early stages of weight loss will be significant. But it could have been caused by the loss of fluid due to the consumption of carbohydrate restriction, and this could be at risk of increasing your weight back later, which is when you return to eating carbohydrates.

Although this diet also recommends exercise as part of successful weight loss program, but this program only provides limited information and petuniuk about the activities that can be done. "It should be copied portion for sport," said Dawn.

To be successful for you
For weight loss slowly and safely, start phase 2 week earlier, or from scratch, although you will lose weight only 0.5 to 1 kg. Combine this diet with exercise to increase muscle strength and help in weight loss, as well as other health benefits.

Diet Type
Apparently, the diet is not just to limit or avoid eating certain foods. There are several different types of diets, which applies to diets that differ from each other. Although with the same goal: producing a slim body without the fat, beautiful and healthy. Which type of diet that are most appropriate for you? Let us discuss one by one.

Detox Diet
Chemicals affect our body's metabolism and appetite, and also damage the body's ability to burn food. Because it reduces the chemicals that enter the body will make the body work better. We'll be healthier and fat will not accumulate in your body. The trick is to eat organic foods and reducing consumption of processed foods, especially those containing harmful substances, such as saturated fats and dyes.

Should consume vegetables, fruits, nuts and herbs for a month and do not consume meat, fish, simple carbohydrates, and salt.

Can it work?
It sounds very good indeed, but it seems that many nutrition experts still do not understand how chemicals can affect weight gain. But Dr. Baillie Hamilton a doctor with a Ph.D. in human metabolism. He did his own research on how toxins in the body can reduce the hormones that will control your weight. And certainly, Detox Diet will most likely be able to help you lose weight because it makes you reduce your calorie intake.

Detox diets are generally very low in calories, so you will lose weight quite dramatically in a short time. The risk you will lack nutrients because of the number of calories too dramatically reduced. Most likely this is also very low dietary calcium because almost 50% of calcium obtained from dairy products, which is forbidden in this diet. And it is harmful to bone health.

To be successful for you
Drink plenty of water and eat fruits and vegetables. Choose organic vegetables whenever possible, and do not forget to exercise regularly during detoxification. No need to let you starve yourself, because this diet is not a diet that requires you to feel hungry. It may also add supplements such as Detoxil, which contains nutrients to help the liver (liver) to clean toxins and protect your immune system. You will probably also experience headaches, stomach aches, constipation or tired when the body remove toxins.

Weight Watchers
According to weight watchers, to maintain ideal body weight requires a lifestyle change program that is comprehensive, covering physical, mental and emotional with the help of support groups.
Program based on the Weight Watchers point system, where each food has a certain number of points based on fat content, fiber and calories. Each person specified limits pointya made with the intent to facilitate weight loss program. Weight Watchers does not include a list of foods that should not be or that may be eaten. Its primary focus is to provide information, knowledge, tools and motivation you need to build your own success in maintaining ideal body weight in the long run.

Weight Watchers does not just promise weight loss, but also to instill healthy eating habits. You will not be troubled by the kinds of foods that should or should not be eaten, because all the food you can taste. Weight Watchers also provides a variety of ready-made food products

Can it work?
For those of you who want to lose weight quickly, you will not get it here. It is estimated that within a week your body weight is only reduced by 1 kg. But once you've lost weight, you will be able to sustain in the long term.

To be successful for you
However points or calorie counting is only one form of a measurement. A candy bar may contain the same calories with a large piece of Rati, but not necessarily have the nutrient content and health effects are the same). So instead of counting points, you also have to be more careful in establishing healthy eating habits, which will help you lose weight and maintain your health. For more information about this diet you can get the information and motivation via www.weightwatchers.com or Weight Watchers magazine.

Atkins Diet
You could say the Atkins diet is a low-carbohydrate diets high in protein. Diet was first launched by Dr. Robert C. Atkins is also a cardiologist, in the early 70's. The theory says that the Atkins diet by increasing consumption of foods containing protein and no carbs at all During the first 2 weeks, the body will build ketosis, a state in which the body uses fat as fuel.
After 2 weeks or so-called phase-2, you should consume carbohydrates, though only in a very very small portion. It will help the body maintain insulin levels remain low and stop the body convert food into fat. The theory is that eating too many carbohydrates will raise blood sugar levels. In turn this will produce insulin, which quickly toward the flow of blood and converting excess blood sugar into fat called triglycerides, which will be stored as body fat. after that, there are two stages left to run in this diet is, premaintenance and maintenance. At this stage you only have to maintain your diet, as well as begin to see results.

Atkins Diet will encourage your body's metabolism and so you change your metabolism, your body will adjust automatically with a new way of burning fat. "Moreover, by controlling insulin levels remain low, those who mendetita heart disease, hypertension and diabetes will reveal the existence of significant clinical improvement.

Can it work?
These diets do work for the short term (3-6 months), much better than other diets. However, in the long run, a study dipubiikasikan in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that a year later those who diet do not experience weight penurunkan different from those who followed conventional low-fat diet.

Although people with this diet eat more meat, but they are likely to reduce total calories by eating fewer carbohydrates or other foods high in calories. Because actually, the habit of noodles makes you more selective in choosing food, and it's impact on the decrease in total caloric intake.

The main fear is that high-protein foods are often high in saturated fat. Eating high protein can also reduce levels of calcium can trigger the occurrence of osteoporosis. So also with people who have health problems such as patients with liver and kidney, can get undue stress caused by the body tries to eliminate the ketone. Other experts observed that this diet can cause constipation, colon, kidney, or rising cholesterol levels. You will also experience bad breath because of increased ketone.

Wendy Martinson Nutritionists warn that you do not do the Atkins diet when you exercise frequently (4-5 times a week). Due to exercise you need fuel. The body is able to get it to burn fat, but not as fast as your body needs to exercise. As a result you will lack energy.
To be successful for you

Do not use this diet as an excuse so you can go around eating steak, cheese or high-protein foods (too fat) others. Variasakan source of protein and eat lots of fish and low carbohydrate fruits and vegetables are allowed, for example: bean sprouts, mushrooms, celery, peppers, radishes, asparagus, cabbage, spinach and eggplant. You can use the Atkins diet as a first step toward your weight loss program, but do not use it more than 14 days.

Food Combining
In prisnsipnya diet group theorized that certain foods require different digestion times. The body will digest food better when we consume foods that have the same digestion time. Proteins, for example, has a long tract of time, whereas short carbohydrate. Therefore they should not be eaten together. In contrast, the protein can be consumed together with green vegetables.

A good weight loss is considered closely related to good digestion. Consuming foods in the wrong way will make it rot and can not be digested properly, thus causing the occurrence of fat deposits. So if you know when to eat the right time and managed to avoid certain foods consumed at the same time, automatically your digestion work better, and your weight will go down by itself.

You do not need to count calories or reduce the size of the meal to lose weight. Simply by knowing when to eat and what food combinations. That way, your body will naturally achieve and maintain ideal weight. With plenty to eat lots of vegetables and fruit, you will be spared from constipation, the body became more fit and away from the disease.

The rule is  not easy to follow. You also need to make dietary changes are drastic enough to run this diet. Although it is quite a lot of people successfully lose weight with this diet.
In addition to very low in calories, this diet over the long term can lead to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals the body needs, especially vitamin D, B2, calcium, and iron. To be successful for you
To compensate for changes in your diet is quite dramatic, eat, you can select any combination you like, Calculated to please his diet so that events are less of a burden.
Add supplements to get around the lack of vitamins and minerals.
