Low-carb diets such as the Zone Diet and Low GI Diet are popular among dieters looking for a balanced and healthy way to lose weight.
The Atkins Diet is a weight management plan based on fats, proteins, and low-carb products such as cheese, vegetables, and butter. Dieters can also have controlled-carb convenience foods. The South Beach Diet divides carbohydrates into two groups – good and bad carbs.
Dieters should avoid bad carbs, which are empty of nutritional value, as well as saturated fat. The Paleo Diet is based on the hunter-gatherer’s diet and emphasizes eating foods such as lean meats, organ meats, fish, and raw fruits and vegetables.
The Low GI diet recommends eating low-glycemic foods that are high in fiber and are nutrient-rich. Dieters can have low GI foods like red peppers, green beans, high-fat snickers bars, and pinto beans.
The Sugar Busters Diet is a nutritional approach based on low sugar and carbohydrate intake. The main idea is that sugar is toxic and leads to overweight. The Zone Diet is another popular weight loss plan that emphasizes healthy eating, with dieters consuming fat, protein, dietary fiber, and carbohydrates. The key is in consuming foods in a balanced ratio.
