3. Weight Watchers
Started in 1963 by Jean Nidetch, Weight Watchers program is aimed at ensuring its members lose weight by eating healthier foods while at the same time getting more exercise. Interestingly, the program has no restrictive diet regimen that prevents members from eating certain foods. The program offers the SmartPoints®-Beyond the Scale plan introduced to help people make better and smarter food choices. Every food item is designated a point value taking into consideration the content of calories, saturated fats, sugar, and protein in the food item.
Weight Watchers has two avenues through which individuals can participate in the program: through in-person meetings or via an online-only program. This provides versatility through which users can benefit from in watching their weight. Furthermore, there is a robust support system wherein members can offer guidance and positive reinforcement in weight watcher meetings.
4. Cambridge diet
The Cambridge diet plan just like the Nutrisystem plan is based on buying and eating a range of meal replacements that promise rapid weight loss. This a very low-calorie diet with calorie consumption per day ranging from 415 to 1500 calories. The results of this can be rapid and dramatic. The good thing is that meal replacements take into consideration macronutrient intake and therefore the meals are balanced. Even though this diet plan is effective long term use is not sustainable due to low caloric intake.
5. Get At The Roots 12-week Weight Loss Program
Get at the Roots is a twelve-week weight loss program geared towards providing a holistic approach to weight loss. The program is based on the premise that the healthier the body gets, the easier it is to lose weight. To further emphasize the point, the program is not a low calorie nor a low-fat diet. The focus on health as the barometer to measure weight loss success is refreshing and provides for a sustainable solution to weight loss.
The program is structured in such a way that each person meets their daily macronutrient intake. Primary macronutrients are proteins, carbohydrates, and fat. Every person is given a specific daily amount of protein in grams based on the person’s lean body mass. The amount of calories from carbohydrates vary on a day to day basis based on the individual’s activity level. For fats, the right type is necessary to promote fat loss and the correct amount as well. The overall idea is once one acquires the necessary body macronutrient requirements the homeostatic body environment is maintained and this promotes fat loss.
The program fully caters to choosing which meals suite your dieting needs. One is not required to count calories or monitor carbohydrate intake and based on a predefined portion, participants of this program do not need to make sure they are eating the correct portions.
The programs efficacy hinges on ensuring the diets used control calories and portions and provided the frequency required to efficiently lose weight. The program also removes the hustle of having to count calories, determine portion size and plan for your diets. This provides a unique convenience to users of the program.
7. Volumetrics Diet
The volumetric diet comes highly acclaimed from Health US News, as it ranked eight best diets overall evaluated against thirty-eight diets. The volumetric diets program was created Barbara Rolls, a Penn State University nutrition professor. The diet divides food into four main groups namely: very-low-density, low density, medium density and high density.
In the very low-density category foods included here are non-starchy fruits and vegetables, broth bathed soup and non-fat milk. The low-density category contains foods like starchy fruits and vegetables, grains, and legumes among others. The medium density includes meat, cheese, ice cream and cake among other foods. Among some of the mentions of the high-density foods include chips, crackers, and cookies.
The approach of this diet is to ensure one eats as much of the low-density foods with low-calorie count with foods consumed at high volume. The diet promotes healthy amounts of food but restricts calorie intake not by the amount of food eaten but by the kind of foods one is eating. The more one indulges in low-density food regardless of the amount, the fewer the caloric intake; which is important in promoting weight loss.
