Losing weight, getting in shape, and being healthy is “all the rage”.
Honestly, I don’t understand why that wouldn’t be the case all the time, but it certainly is vogue now to be on some sort of diet plan and fitness plan. The biggest problem I see is that there are many unhealthy, unbalanced diet plans.
I had friends who did a 500 calorie per day, no fat diet
They also used some drops to assist in “melting adipose fat”. Sure, they lost weight, but I think anyone can do that on a 500 calorie a day diet. I am positive that their health also suffered due to no fat, no protein, and no calcium. I saw one “meal” that consisted of alfalfa sprouts on a lettuce wrap with a bit of soy sauce. That was it. I’d be like, “Dude, where’s the food?”.
There is also the low carb craze.
And yes, it’s still there, with massive amounts of people grabbing all the protein they can a day, with little to no carbs. While
Aktins starts out at a mere 20 carbs per day,
Protein Power has you start at a whopping 30. Yes, I have followed both extensively, and lost weight with them. But, the minute I added more than 40 carbs a day, I put it all back on. And, I wanted some rice, or some oatmeal once in a while. These plans did not allow for it. But, you remove most of the sugar, simple carbs, and processed foods from your diet.
Then, you have a vegan/vegetarian diet.
Remove all animal proteins, and add in more fresh fruits and veggies. This removes all the sugar, simple carbs and processed foods from your diet. Is anyone starting to see a trend here?
