Weight loss diets

Weight loss diets that work

Are you wondering about any of the above questions regarding diets for weight loss? If so, you are not alone. About half of all Americans said they were trying to lose weight as being overweight or obese affects up to 70% of all adults. Let us review the science and art of the diets, find out which diets actually work and what does not work.

What is the best weight loss diet?

The first think we want to discuss before going in to the question of what diets really work is to understand how we evolved. The human race is believed to have been around for about 2 million years or so. What did our ancestor ate? What genetic adaptation do we have when it comes to our foods?

Most paleontologists agree that primitive human societies were hunters and gatherers. So, what did the hunter gatherer societies eat? They basically went hunting for meat and fat by hunting animals and then they gathered some fruits, nuts, roots and vegetables, most of which were low glycemic foods. With a very active lifestyle and consuming foods that are rich in nutrients, protein, fat and lower glycemic load foods, they had very little risk of obesity, diabetes and over 50 medical problems now associated with obesity.

Is agriculture humanities double edged sword? Did a diet rich in cereal grains lead to insulin resistance and obesity?

According Dr. Loren Cordain, founder of the Paleo diet and author, cereal grains might have played the role of a double edge sword in the rise of the human civilizations by allowing large quantities of grains that can be dried and stored to be produced by just a few so others can specialize in other arts and crafts leading to the rise of the modern civilizations.

However, our bodies did not have the genetic adaptation to eat single leaf based plants which these cereal grains are derived from leading to certain digestion issues, lack of proper digestion and absorption of the nutrients. Worse yet, cereal grains also have certain chemicals called anti-nutrients, phytols, resorcinols and protease inhibitors that all lead to certain autoimmune problems in our body such as gluten sensitivity (celiac disease), connective tissues diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis etc. Check our the research paper on cereal grains – humanities double edged sword.

Choosing the right weight loss diet

Is low fat diet or low carbohydrate diet better for weight loss?

With well over 20,000 books written on the topic of diet and weight loss, it is very confusing for me. Where can I consult with a well trained weight loss doctor that focuses on evidence based medicine and no fat diets?

At W8MD medical weight loss centers of America, our well trained, experienced, weight loss physicians focus on evidence based medicine and can not discuss what works for weight loss and what is considered a fad diet, but also put on  the right path for losing weight safely and effectively.

What are the 5 proven measures to lose weight?

  1. a diet low in calories with VLCD or LCD diet
  2. increased physical activity with low calorie diet
  3. behavior therapy to correct wrong eating patterns
  4. prescription medications or diet pills to suppress hunger and increase metabolism
  5. weight loss bariatric surgery

What is VLCD diet for fast weight loss?

A VLCD is a special diet that provides up to 800 calories per day. VLCDs use commercial formulas, usually liquid shakes, soups, or bars, which replace all your regular meals. These formulas are not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocerystores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day.
