If you are confused by weight loss programs you are not alone. There are so many different types of diets and programs that it is no wonder there is confusion. Some convince you that the answer is low fat, low carb, while others preach the opposite. The important thing to remember is to choose a diet correct for your lifestyle.
Each diet or program has it’s advantages and disadvantages. In a program, such as Jenny Craig or NutriSystem, you are being closely monitored and are eating specific meals designed for your weight loss.
While if you are on the Zone or Atkins Diets, you must monitor and prepare your own meals. Your choice may also be a financial consideration as well. Most programs such as Jenny Craig or NutriSystem cost significantly more than the Zone or Atkins, as they are preparing your foods for you.
To eliminate the confusion of choosing a tailored program or a specific diet, you may first want to consult your physician to discuss what the best options for you are.
Your physician may ask you to add a fitness program to your diet as well, or may require you to choose a specific diet if you have health issues. Meeting with your physician is especially important before starting a program or diet especially if your goal is significant weight loss.
Once you have decided on either a program or a specific diet, you will then be able to tailor your program or diet to meet your lifestyle and achieve your desired results.
