Diet Style Around The World

The Cabbage Soup diet

The Cabbage Soup diet is as it sounds, eat cabbage soup instead of your main meals and very little else. It reduces the calorie levels of the body to the point of near starvation. You are allowed fruits and vegetables next to the soup, but you should eat as to feel satisfied not stuffed.

This system should not be used for more than a week as it is generally used when the weight is to be lost very quickly, for example, for a wedding. Alcohol is forbidden, water and unsweetened juices are the only beverages you should drink throughout the week. You will lose weight fairly quickly on this diet, but is only suitable as a very short-term solution, the side effects include flatulence and bad breath.

People with long-term health conditions should consult a medical professional, but for people otherwise healthy adjustment, this diet should not cause harm.

The Atkins diet

The Atkins diet is a low carbohydrate diet. If we reduce the amount of carbohydrates and eating more protein and fat, our bodies will naturally lose weight by burning our stored fat much more efficiently.

The problem with the Atkins diet is that because the body burns its own fat, depending on what you eat, it can have some unpleasant side effects in some people, such as bad breath and constipation. And with such a restricted diet, where you eat a very limited amount of fruits and vegetables and protein simply just pure and saturated fat, you increase your risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

The potential is there to lose a lot of weight very quickly on the Atkins diet you will tend to feel full longer by eating lots of carbohydrates, but this kind of diet when long-term monitoring is dangerous for your health.

South Beach diet

The South Beach diet is quite similar to the Atkins diet in that it is another low in carbohydrates and proteins rich diet, except that it is much more balanced. Instead of sticking rigidly to low carb foods throughout the dieting phase, it focuses on how each of good and bad carbohydrate foods impact your sugar levels in the blood.

You hold two weeks of strict retaining what you can and can not eat and from there you can start introducing carbohydrates and healthy fruit to your diet again, it is all about experimentation with your diet and watching the weight patterns, learn what triggers your body to gain weight. If you start to gain weight again, you can easily return to the strict diet for two weeks.

As low-carb diets go, it is a much healthier diet because it not only encourages dieters not to cut anything and eat everything in moderation to maintain a healthy weight. This means that you are much more likely to stick to this plan and achieve your goals successfully.

The Zone diet

The Zone diet is different from other systems in that it discourages consumption of carbohydrates, bad fats, processed foods and sugars and focuses more on us eating more meat, fruits and vegetables. Dieters are encouraged to also calculate the amount of calories they need one and it also encourages regular eating habits and regular consumption of good fats and low glycemic foods.

It is a healthy way of eating and controlled which ensures effective weight loss, although many people may find it costly and difficult to follow.

Detox diet

Detox diets involve either not to use or attempt to flush out the substances that are considered useless or harmful. Examples include limiting the consumption of foods without dyes or preservatives, taking supplements, or drink large amounts of water.

The latter practice in particular, drew criticism, but to drink much more water than the recommended levels can cause hyponatraemia.

All About Yoghurt Wars

An organic yogurt company recently had a TV commercial highlighting 2 competitors and their not so wholesome ingredients. Now, if you’ve followed me, you’ll know random chemicals shouldn’t be in your food. Yet, the competitors are stating that it’s perfectly OK.

On of the ingredients, potassium sorbate, was confirmed by the CEO to kill bacteria and yeasts. They purposefully add it to destroy bacteria.

Wait, hold on… You eat the yogurt for the probiotic bacteria, right? So, why would you eat a yogurt that has a chemical designed to kill bacteria? It doesn’t make sense, until you realize that the company is more interested in money than providing a quality product.

The other has a chemical sweetener that was downgraded to ‘use with caution’ recently. Enough science made it through the bureaucracy to force the government to recognize it as something potentially unsafe. Why would you eat something that is needs to be eaten with caution? It’s directly saying that this poison is OK as long as you don’t eat too much of it.

You need to make healthy choices. One of those healthy choices is to avoid any food product with chemicals, colors, sugars, and things you just don’t know what they are.

Let’s face it, these things may make life easier now, but they will make life harder later on.

There are better alternatives. One is to make your own yogurt. It’s actually really easy. First, you need whole milk (not low fat or all you get is runny mush) and a good, organic yogurt starter. For me, I buy a starter from one of the several companies that put quality ahead of high CEO salaries.

As a side note, I purchased a starter pack with 6 different kinds of yogurt for less than $20. It will produce about 30 gallons of yogurt, maybe more if I carefully keep tending the base to produce new flavors.

Then, you add the yogurt starter to the milk, keep it warm, and wait. In a day, you have lots of healthy, delicious yogurt. You can add any flavor you want: berries, jams, maple syrup (odd, I know, but I know several people who do this), nuts, seeds, granola, and the list goes on.

You can make as little as a quart to several gallons at a time. Me, I make 1 gallon at a time and it lasts about a week for 3 people.

The best part is I don’t have to worry about chemicals, residues (I use organic milk), or unwanted things. When it is finished, with the yogurt starter, milk, and additions, I make 1 cup of yogurt for about $0.25. For me, it’s worth it. How much is your health worth to you?
