The Best Diet For Weight Loss

It seems like everybody wants to lose weight,and what is the best diet for weight loss? It is really a diet that — seemingly a paradox— is a diet that has the most fat. If you want to lose weight, you eat more fat. And this isn't really that new. This datesback to at least 2007 as publishedthe Journal of the American Medical Association.Let's have a look. So this is the famous A to Z Study. It's a12 month randomized trial of 311 overweight or obese premenopausal nondiabetic women.And again, publishedthe Journal of the American Medical Association. They lookedat four different diets: the popular Atkins

Diet, which is really low carb, the traditionalAmerican diet that we still hear recommendations for, which is a lowfat, highcarb diet. TheOrnish Plan, which is a very high carbohyate diet, and finally the Zone Diet, which issomewhat of a lowcarbohyate diet. But for our purposesthis tutorial I'd like to justcompare the Atkins Diet and the Ornish Diet, because they represent the extremes. Atkins Diet gets 44 percent of it's caloriesfrom fat, as opposed to a much significant reduction of carbohyates down to 34 percent. And that's just exactly opposite, pretty much,of what the Ornish plan recommends. As you

will recall the Ornish Diet is one that'slowfat and highcarbs. So let's compare the Atkins program to the Ornish program interms of what the Journal of the American Medical Association has to say. Well the Atkins Diet gives you a lot moresaturated fatterms of grams per day: 27 versus 17 for the Ornish Diet. Now the body mass index on the Atkins dietwent down by 1.65. That's a measurement basically of how fat you are. On the Ornish Diet, notanywhere near a significant reductioncomparison to the Atkins Diet.

The percentage body fat down by about 3 percenteating more fat and half that amount on the Ornish plan. Triglycerides, a powerful marker for riskfor heart disease, reduced by close to 30 points by eating more fat on the Atkins program,and about half that on the Ornish program that tells you to go on a lowfat diet. HDL, or good cholesterol, increases on theAtkins Diet by about 5 points, no change on the lowfat Ornish program. LDL, or so called bad cholesterol, goes downon the Ornish program, for sure, and not much

change on the Atkins program. What about fasting glucose, which we knowis significantly related to risks for Alzheimers Disease, down almost 2 points on the Atkinsprogram, and down by about less than one point on Ornish. Blood pressure goes down significantly eatingmore fat, and even the bottom number, the diastolic, goes down significantly more eatingmore fat on the Atkins program. And as you see here, the Atkins program isa diet that favors much more fat and a significant reductioncarbohyates,comparisonto what so called US experts recommend, which

is a diet that is much highercarbohyates. Publishedthe Journal of the American MedicalAssociation, and this dates back to 2007, the A to Z Trial clearly indies that whenwe increase our consumption of good fats, and amatically reduce our consumption ofcarbohyates, a variety of cardiovascular risk factors improvefavor of the highfatdiet, and you'll even lose more weight.
