 Free Weight Loss programs

The race to fitness is on and a lot of people are getting on the 

bandwagon. Some people do it to achieve a sexy body, some people 

just do it because they are embarrassed with the body they have now, 

while others do it simply to remain fit and healthy. As such, many 

fitness programs are out on the internet, in gyms, spas, and fitness 

centers all over. Some are too expensive to afford that one may even 

lose weight just by trying to work out the money needed to pursue these fitness programs.


One may not have to go to the gym or the spa or any fitness center 

and spend much just to slim down to obtain that longed for sexy 

body. There are many books available in the bookstore that offer weight loss programs that are convenient and for free, of course, the 

books are not though. These weight loss programs or diet plans are 

gaining immense popularity with so much publicity, testimonials, 

and reviews that one may be confused about which exactly to follow. 

So before choosing which weight loss plan to follow, try reading 

these summaries about the most popular diet programs out today.


Atkins' New Diet Revolution by Dr. Atkins. This weight loss 

program encourages a high protein diet and a trim down on the 

carbs. One can feast on vegetables and meat but should fast on bread 

and pasta. One is also not restricted against fat intake so it is okay to 

pour in the salad dressing and freely spread on the butter. However, 

after the diet, one may find himself lacking in fiber and calcium yet 

high in fat. Intake of grains and fruits are also limited.


Carbohydrate Addict's Diet by Drs. Heller. This diet plan advocates 

low carbohydrate eating. Approves on eating meats, vegetables, and 

fruits, dairy, and grain products. however, warns against taking in too 

much carb. "Reward" meal can be too high on fats and saturated fats.


Choose to Lose by Dr. Goor. Restrains fat intake. One is given a 

"fat" budget and he is given the liberty on how to spend it. It does 

not pressure the individual to watch his carbohydrate intake. Eating 

meat and poultry as well as low-fat dairy and seafood is okay. A go 

signal is also given on eating vegetables, fruits, cereals, bread, and 

pasta. This weight loss plan is fairly healthy, with good amounts of 

fruits and vegetables as well as saturated fats. Watch triglyceride 

levels though; if high, trim down the carbohydrates and tuck in more of the unsaturated fats.


The DASH Diet. Advocates moderate amounts of fat and protein 

intake and high on carbs. Primarily designed to lower blood 

pressure, 

the diet plan follows the pyramid food guide and encourages a high 

intake of whole wheat grains as well as fruits and vegetables and 

low-fat dairy. Some dieters think it advocates too much eating to 

procure significant weight loss.


Eat More, Weigh Less by Dr. Ornish. Primarily vegetarian fare and 

strictly low-fat. Gives the go signal on the "glow" foods but warns to 

watch it on non-fat dairy and egg whites. This diet is poor in calcium 

and restricts the consumption of healthy foods like seafood and lean poultry.


Eat Right for Your Type. Interesting because it is based on the 

person's blood type. recommends plenty of mest for people with 

blood type O. Diet plans for some blood types are nutritionally 

imbalanced and too low in calories. And for the record, there is even 

no proof that blood type affects dietary needs.


The Pritkin Principle. Focused on trimming the calorie density in 

eating by suggesting watery foods that make one feel full. Eating 

vegetables, fruits, oatmeal, pasta, soups, salads, and low-fat dairy is 

okay. Although limits protein sources to lean meat, seafood, and 

poultry. Although it is healthy by providing low amounts of saturated 

fats and rich amounts of vegetables and fruits, it is also low on 

calcium and limits lean protein sources.


Volumetrics. For low-density calorie eating. Recommends the same 

foodstuff as Pritkin but restricts fatty or dry foods like popcorn, 

pretzels, and crackers. This plan is reasonably healthy given the high 

amounts of fruits and vegetables as well as being low in calorie density and saturated fats.


The Zone. Moderately low on the carbs yet moderately high on the 

proteins. Encourages low-fat protein foods like fish and chicken plus 

veggies, fruits, and grains. It is also healthy but lacking in grains and calcium.


Weight Watchers. High carbohydrates, moderate on fats and 

proteins. A very healthy diet plan and very flexible too. it allows the 

.dieter to plan his own meal rather than give him a 

set to follow
