Weight loss is close to all of our hearts. This is why the industry generates billions of dollars each year. Just in America alone, the statistics are staggering. Over 2 million Americans are medically termed 'obese.'
How could business, and the economy and capitalists not jump on this money making market? So if you are one of the millions who are looking for a healthy weight loss, it can be very confusing where to start looking. Let's take a look at what is on the market today starting with these popular diets.
Some of the healthier diets to consider are:
o Weight Watchers - one of the healthier fat loss programs where one gets group support.
o Jenny Craig - Centers offer support and one can buy their food.
o The Dr Atkins Diet - quite easy to do, as one is allowed fats, meat and even eggs, but few carbohydrates, and no sugar.
The authors of the above diets have written books, so to start your dieting program, it is best to buy the book!
There is also another easy, convenient way to follow a new dieting program, and that is to buy an online weight loss book. One of the most popular right now is called FatLoss4Idiots, and judging by the testimonials, it certainly looks like an intelligently thought out healthy diet.
Books or online e-books do not cost too much and one can follow the programs easily before trying the following more expensive methods of weight loss:
o Weight Loss Drugs - can be very expensive and harmful to the body.
o Diuretics - only cause a huge water weight loss
o Expensive exercise equipment - will not make you lose weight, without eating healthily as well.
So many people are so desperate to lose weight that they turn to surgery, such as liposuction, or tummy tucks, but again, unless you have seriously tried a fat loss program, you will not be a successful candidate for surgery.
Some successful surgeries are lap bands or stomach stapling, but before reaching this point, the best method is to follow a tried and tested healthy diet with exercise.
