You probably already know about at least one popular program names Weight Watchers. This program has been around for decades and is based on the popular “points” program. Rather than counting calories you count points which have been assigned to each food group and then told how many you may have per day. This system makes it possible for you to control your food intake. Many people find that this system encourages them through the weight loss process. One of the things that makes this program so popular is the amount of dietary freedom it offers compared with others like it. A bestseller over the last decade is the Abs Diet. The aspects of the Abs Diet are geared more for men who want to lose weight. That does not mean, of course, that women cannot take part in this particular weight loss program as well. While the program is based on tried and true weight loss techniques, it can feel a little gimmicky. The program talks about how losing weight is more complex than simply counting calories, and it also uses carbohydrates for energy.

“Best-seller” status was never quite achieved by the Mediterranean Diet. It’s popularity remains constant though. Diets that are popular in Western Europe and Greece have led to the formation of this diet. The idea is that the people living in these areas eat this particular type of diet every day and are thinner, healthier and live longer than practically anybody else in the western world so they must be doing something right. Many people like this diet because they are allowed to keep eating their favorite foods.

As we have shown, not all weight loss programs are the same. Some can be very good for you and actually help you lose weight. Nevertheless, you should watch out for the ones that can hurt you physically and may not even help you lose weight. Your doctor is always a good place to start before you begin any kind of diet. The best part about talking to your doctor is he or she already knows your health history. With your health history, your doctor can best asses your goal and design a program just for you.
