Study: Dieting Useless, May Damage Health
 
[url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=447651&in_page_id=1770&ct=5]Diets damage health, shows biggest ever study | the Daily Mail[/url]

Not sure what I think about this study. Personally I lost 40 pounds by watching my carbs and sugar and I've kept if off for over 4 years now. I really don't consider what I did a diet though, more like a lifestyle change.

My wife and I joined Weight Watchers back in January, and it has really helped me change the way I buy food at the store, striving for more fresh than packaged. As much as I thought I was a label reader before, it's nothing compared to now. We consume the number of points allotted each day, and I've dropped 30 pounds. I've also added going to the gym into the routine, so I probably would have lost more weight if I wasn't adding the little bit of muscle I've added.

The biggest thing people don't get is to just consume less calories than your body burns off every day. That and lay off the Chipotle.

Not sure about all this diet stuff but if you just watch what and how much you eat you will loose weight. Back 3 years ago My cholesterol was high and me and my wife started to really watch what we eat. Neither of us had weight issues but we both lost weight and weight is not even a concern with us. if you just stop eating fast food, processed food, and watch the amounts of food you will loose weight. Now if you drink a 12 pack before each meal it might not help but you will not gain as much weight. We try to eat really healthy food durn the week and splurge some on the weekend as I'll never give up my steaks.

Shop on the outside, stay away from the inside aisle crap.

I think this study may be in regards to yo-yo dieting rather than people who make solid lifestyle changes. If that's the case then this really isn't news.

The study isn't saying anything earth-shattering. Most people who do yo-yo end up larger than they were before they started dieting, hence more strain on the body, ending up with higher risks to heart disease and the such.

"Diets" are worthless and I wish that message would get out. A "diet" by definition is a temporary change in food intake. Both type and amount. They are unsustainable because once the "diet" is over everything goes back to the way it was. I am amazed at why people don't seem to understand this. You want to lose weight and do it properly and have some semblance of sustainablity? Start eating one medium size plate of food for meals, cut out snacks in almost every form and time, eliminate processed sugar as a staple of your intake, and excercise. It isn't rocket science.

People are always looking for the quick fix that diets provide. More emphasis needs to be placed on lifestyle changes, not diet fads.
