May 11, 2011: Consumer Reports reports half the story!
This week, Consumer Reports rated the “best diets.” Included on their list: Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Atkins, etc. This list is interesting because the diet plans they chose do not fit the diet guidelines they recommend within the article! Below are the diet recommendations from Consumer Reports:
More food for thought from the Consumer Reports ratings:
– No matter what kind of diet you’re on, you won’t lose weight unless you burn more calories than you take in. But the evidence is beginning to show that some types of calories are more filling than others. Diet plan creators are increasingly incorporating this knowledge into how they design their menus – higher in protein, fiber, fruits and vegetables that fill people up and reduce hunger pangs without upping the calorie count.
– The evidence is growing that refined carbohydrates, such as those found in white bread and potatoes, contribute to weight gain and type 2 diabetes because of how they affect blood sugar and insulin levels.
– Fat appears to be less detrimental to health than commonly believed. Although it’s still “a subject of vigorous scientific debate,” saturated fat doesn’t seem to raise the risk of cardiovascular disease or stroke, according to Consumer Reports.
– Some studies suggest that dieters are better off if they replace the saturated fat in their diet with unsaturated fat rather than refined carbs.
– A dietary middle ground, suggested by Dr. Michael L. Dansinger, assistant professor of medicine at Tufts University and a weight-loss researcher: “a low-ish carbohydrate diet that’s high in vegetables and lean protein, including dairy; moderate in fruit; with nonsaturated fat from sources such as olive oil, nuts, avocados and fish.”
