Top 10 Diets

#9/10 (Two-Way Tie): Biggest Loser Diet

This diet is based on the popular reality TV show The Biggest Loser. 6 Weeks to a Healthier You is the name of the book that goes along with this diet. It focuses on three major health concepts and the importance of getting up off the couch and exercising.
 
The first concept focuses on whole foods. These foods include fruit, vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, whole grains, beans, and nuts. These foods will keep you fuller while eating fewer calories. Learning to eat these foods in smaller portions more often is the second concept. Eating five or six small meals daily will keep you fuller, keep your blood sugar stable, and help stop hunger pangs and cravings that lead to bad diet decisions.
 
This diet also tailors your daily calorie intake to your weight loss goals, giving you the right amount of fuel to give you energy, but still allow you to lose weight. This diet is big on exercising. Getting off the couch and being active might be the toughest component in this diet. The book gives examples of workouts, from body weight strength training to yoga, Pilates, and aerobics. The main emphasis is to get 2.5 hours of moderate exercise (brisk walking) per week. This will not only help with weight loss, but it will also help lower blood pressure and give you more energy.
