Diet

Dieting should be a lifestyle rather than a quick thing people do for a few days or few weeks. Any diet whether for weight loss or healthy living should provide all the essential nutrients. While there is no shortage of diets, with over 20,000 books written on the topic, unfortunately, majority of the diets end up being fad diets. In this article, we will review the best diets for weight loss with a focus on clinically proven diets to assist in losing weight. Although there are so many confusing diets and weight loss options, there are only about 5 options that are clinically proven for weight loss.

What is Glycemic Index of foods?

Glycemic Index of Foods: If you were to make your own meals, the W8MD program requires you to understand the glycemic index of foods. The higher the glycemic index, the higher the demands on the body to produce insulin. Consuming high glycemic index foods can increase the risk of developing insulin resistance leading to a condition called metabolic syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome, affecting one in three Americans, increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other conditions including increased risk of certain cancers.
