Two Diet Programs That Do Work

Many of us have suffered from either overweight or obesity. Global prosperity does increase people’s welfare. But at the same time, it allows and even embraces over-consumption. As a result, people these days are more vulnerable to heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and even cancers.

According to WHO, obese and overweight people have increased threefold since 1975. Both adults and kids are all at risks of obesity because of the high tendency of the sedentary lifestyle and the rampant fast food culture. Being fat is no longer a laughable subject but a severe condition.

However, problems always give chances for people to make a fortune from selling solutions. And in the global overweight case, many dietary programs claim themselves to be the best ones to cut weight. But in reality, only a few ways do work.

Low-Sugar/Ketogenic Diet

Contrary to the widespread belief that says fat and meat being the culprit of obesity, the Keto diet argues that sugar is the leading cause. Keto replaces our body’s metabolism fuel with fat. It triggers the process of Ketosis, a natural metabolic state that makes our body produce ketone. It is an organic compound which has the same use as carbs.

The principle of this diet is to cut carbs intake to only 50gr, or fewer, per day. And to do so, you are not only required to control your main course meticulously but also your snacking and drinking. In fact, snacks like chips, cookies, and crackers are high in sugar and carbs. Also, all sweet drinks, including sodas, are all notoriously high in sugar.

Keto encourages us to eat more fatty foods and veggies. Fats alone do not give us enough fibers. And that is why we have to balance the condition by eating vegetables. And to find out what the right menu options are, watch the video below to get to the right information. It teaches you how to prepare and cook easy keto menus.

Intermittent Fasting

Our body adapted to famine. The idea may seem weird to accept, but believe it or not, we can keep an empty stomach for 18 hours or more. And if you ever read about a person lost in the woods, or left stranded on an isolated island, you will see how they can survive for weeks without foods, but not water.

Intermittent fasting is a straightforward diet program. It aims at boosting the body’s metabolism by not eating for 12 hours. And if you think it can be dangerous for you, you are wrong. Scientists have found out that people who practice intermittent fasting for more than 18 hours regenerate new antibody and rejuvenate their cells.

Conclusion

The diet programs above are the fastest and most efficient ways to lose weight. However, to be on a diet does not mean that you malnourish yourself. You have to make sure that you value your mealtime by eating nourishing foods, and not just fast foods high in preservatives and low in fiber.

Cooking the meals by yourself gives you the control over the ingredients. You decide the portion of carbs, protein, fiber, and fat you want to put in your body. And that it the thing you cannot get from buying a meal from a restaurant.
