THE POINT SYSTEM 200 with so many diets available, how do we know what works and what is safe? L only way to be sure is to discover in the background , writer, and the research methodology behind the diet.
Every good diet should give a

background about the author and his/her credentials and

experience in the fields of nutrition and biochemistry.
However, it is also a huge back not a credible and safe food.
But it does suggest, at least, that the author has

some knowledge of nutrition.
Provision of research behind the diet proves that food is not something that invented author, unless the research is not self-serving and altered to fit a hypothesis.

Some diets may not need a great deal of tests and studies

behind them, simply because they are based on

fundamentals.
For example, many women\#39;s magazines have articles about diet and weight loss, but common sense tips that most people about weight should know already affected: ” ; Eat ” smaller meals ,, “, reducing sugars and fats “, etc..
, are typical philosophies.
More structured diets should propose some scientific reasons for the success, preferably carried out case studies and research on subjects every day, and by athletes.

Since we have established the importance of eating a

balanced diet in accordance to selecting healthy foods and

obtaining RDA minimums, it is possible now to rate the

diets in accordance to those specific criteria.
Start with a score of 200 and subtract 10 points from the total for each of the following statements, which are in the food.
An ideal diet

should maintain a score of 200, but a score of 160 or

greater is acceptable.
1.
The diet does not include the food groups in adequate

amounts.
Some diets eliminate one or more food groups.
Do not deduct 10 points if a food group’s nutrients

(e.
, carbs, proteins, fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals) are

adequately substituted with that of another food group.
2.
The diet does not provide at least 45% of its calories from

carbohydrate sources.
To prevent ketosis, at least 150 g of glucose per day needed.
That’s 33-50% of total

calorie intake on a 1200-calorie diet.
Remember that the minimum.
For highly active individuals, that amount

should increase to 60% at times, i.
and.
, immediately after

exercise.
3.
The carbohydrate content exceeds 20% concentrated

sugars.
At least 80% of the sources of carbohydrates should be complex, and preferably in the form of vegetables, seeds and legumes.

4.
The protein content of over 30%.
A very high protein

intake is unnecessary, it places additional strain on the

urinary system, and it is a poor source of energy.
Thirty percent more than sufficient for the growth of children and young people.
The only group that requires higher protein

intake are those who recently suffered a severe injury (e.
,

leg amputation), infection, or surgery.
However, these people are under the care of a physician with a special diet high in protein.

5.
The protein content accounts for 15% or less of total calories.

Although unnecessary in large amounts, protein still has

many vital functions, including tissue repair and the

formation of enzymes.
6.
Fats exceed 30% of total intake.
have addition to increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease, high fat diet showed that the weight 39 as other methods of food fall #; appropriate .

7.
The total consumption of fat of less than 15% of total calories.

Fat in moderate amounts is essential for a healthy diet, and

such a diet provides taste to many foods.
Fat intake below 15% for long periods, for most people it is unrealistic.

Fat intake that is too low can also be detrimental to children

and teenagers who require ample kcalories for continued

growth.
8.
Total fat consumption is less than 25% essential fatty

acids, and saturated fat is more than 30% of total fat

consumption.
Minus 10 for each.

9.
The diet does not mean traditional food, that food should be able to get any grocery store or market.

10.
The foods in the diet are expensive or monotonous.

Some diets require the purchase of ‘their’ foods or

expensive ‘organic’ foods only obtained through health food

stores.
Some foods taste as bad to endure repeated (and.
g.
, Algae).
Deduct 10 for each.
11.
The diet consists of an inflexible meal plan.
The diet does not allow for substitutions or deviations that a person needs to live arrest with the same choice of food every day.

12.
The diet provides less than 1200 kcal per day.

Less than that and the body’s basic functions may not be

getting the energy, vitamins and minerals needed to work

properly, and the dieter almost is certain to feel hungry all

the time.
Diets under 1,200 calories should be reserved for under the supervision of a licensed doctor or dietitian.

13.
The diet requires taking dietary supplements.
If the diet

provides adequate energy and it is well balanced,

supplements are unnecessary.
Accelerators Grasso, such as ephedrine may, should be able to increase the rate of weight loss, but the food on its own merit as.
Some diet clinics

promote a vast array of herbal preparations and fat

accelerators, and this is where these clinics make their

money – not in their knowledge and ability as nutritionists.
14.
The diet does not recommend a realistic weight goal.
Diets should not be the body of a Greek god or a supermodel.
They should not be suggesting that a person

lose 100 pounds (even if 100 pounds overweight).
Nor should diets recommend weight loss below ideal weight.

15.
The diet recommends or promotes more than 1-2 pounds per week weight loss.
Do not expect to lose more than 1-2

pounds of fat a week – it is physically impossible unless

chronically obese, at which point 3 pounds may be

possible.
If more than two pounds lost per week, is the change of the body by a loss of water and / or muscle tissue.

Gimmicks that promise 10 pounds in 2 weeks are either

simply not true or else something other than fat is being

lost.
Also, remember that to lose more fat a person, much less still, a person, the more difficult and slow to lose more fat.

16.
The food is not an assessment of dietary habits.

Dieting should be a slow process by which a person

changes normal eating habits.
a person who never would not work with these programs and such diets long term – if not looking for quick solutions and support plans promising short cuts and extreme changes are included.
The

number of kcalories eaten, and the food selections and their

amounts, should be reevaluated on a regular basis.
perhaps once every 1-2 months to determine the effectiveness of the program.

17.
L regular exercise is not recommended as part of the plan for healthy weight loss.
Weight loss occurs twice as

fast with exercise, and without exercise there is a greater

tendency to lose lean muscle tissue as well as fat.
This is not the ideal.

OVERVIEW OF VARIOUS DIETS

Low Carbohydrate Diets: Ketosis occurs, and this presents

the same problems as fasting.
Once glycogen stores are spent (as fast with the athletes and those who exercise regularly) to be won, glucose from protein sources, and there is more wear on the kidneys as a result.
Even on a high protein diet, some protein will be

taken from body tissues in order to produce enough energy

for the nervous system and regular activity.
L beginning of ketosis is data show that this process has started and is not a good thing, no matter what fat Authority Pro-.

Great weight loss on a low-carb diet is evident because of

the fact that carbs hold water in the muscles at a ratio of 1:3.
How carbohydrate intake decreases then so also no water retention.

Much water flushes as a result of lack of glycogen to hold

water molecules.
In addition, increased protein intake, excess nitrogen flushes with water even more, since the kidneys use water to dilute the concentration of nitrogen.

Once leaving a low-carb diet and the muscles refill with

glycogen, fluid concentrations increase and the dieter

regains some of the weight.
The low-calorie diet of 400-600 calories, mostly from protein exist u200b u200bhanno the same problems as fasting and low carbohydrate diets: proteins u200b u200b u200b u200bvengono used for energy and weight loss is in the water.
Low-cal diets must

be supervised properly by a medical professional and only

as a last resort for those who cannot seem to lose weight by

other methods.
But people also tend to recover much of their weight back when they return to a balanced diet.
