Spilling the Tea on All Things Weight Management

Spilling the Tea on All Things Weight Management

The article is all about a person who exhibits a physiological need to eat is most likely experiencing the sensation of hunger. 

People have been trying to stick with this diet for many years, but it’s hard when you’re always hungry and not being able to stick with it makes it harder on your mental state. 

It is a myth that eating many small meals a day is healthier than eating two meals a day.

 There are no real health benefits to doing one or the other because your body doesn’t know if you had two or three meals so it doesn’t matter unless you eat 3 meals a day for 3 days straight and then you have to have 4 meals a day.

This article basically goes over the three main diets that people follow to lose weight fast. 

1. The South Beach Diet

South Beach is a diet by Dr. Arthur Agatston which consists of a low-carbohydrate diet that includes lean meats, fish, high fiber carbs, and unlimited fruit and vegetables.

 Studies show that this plan lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increases HDL (good cholesterol) while lowering LDL (bad cholesterol). 

Also, it prevents cardiovascular disease and strokes. This diet does not advise people who want to lose weight fast, but rather for people with high blood pressure, high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes.

Advantages of the south beach diet :

Reduced hunger- It is recommended that you eat every 2 to 3 hours. 

This is because hunger can signal for your body to store fat and not burn it, which is dangerous if you want to lose weight fast.


High cost: This diet is for people who can afford to spend $210 to $310 a week on food.

This diet is for people who can afford to spend $210 to $310 a week on food. Hard to follow the whole plan: the south beach diet permits three meals and two snacks per day. 

This makes it hard for some people especially after putting so much effort into starting the program, they stop because it is too difficult for them.

2. The Atkins Diet

The Atkins diet is another type of low-carbohydrate diet that works on the ketogenic principle of using fat calories to burn fat calories.

 It allows no more than 10 grams of carbs a day and doesn’t give any restrictions on fats or proteins.

 The diet plan has been around since the 80’s and has been proven to help people lose weight. However, it comes with a risk of diarrhea.

Advantages of the atkins diet :

Possible to lose weight fast: This diet is for people who want to lose weight fast. It helps you burn 135 calories per day without exercise.

Disadvantages :

This diet leads to dehydration: if you follow this diet plan, it leads you to dehydration because too much protein leads to renal impairment. 

You can become dehydrated which can lead to kidney failure after a while of following the diet plan. 

Diarrhea is a normal side effect of atkins. If you have a sensitive stomach, this may cause bleeding in your digestive tract and lead to death.

 Fast weight loss is dangerous for your body because it does not have time to adjust itself from losing so much weight so quickly.

3. The Zone Diet

The zone diet is a fairly new diet created by Barry Sears which combines the principles of nutrition from the South Beach Diet and Atkins plans together into one plan that provides a balanced diet.

 It also creates calories that assist after a workout, giving an extra boost to help you drop those excess pounds. 

The main problem with this diet is that people can’t stick with it because they don’t have a way to count their calories and just give up on the diet all together or eat all day long.

Advantages of the zone diet :

Balanced diet: The zone diet provides a balanced diet with high protein, low fat and moderate carbohydrates. 

This is why people lose weight faster because the right amount of protein and carbs have been given to help you lose weight.

Disadvantages :

Requires time to prepare food: The zone diet plan requires a lot of time to prepare meals because it includes small snacks throughout the day to keep energy levels up, which can be difficult for some people.

  • While the South Beach diet requires you to eat every 2 to 3 hours.
  •  The zone diet requires you to eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking because it slows down your metabolism and gives your body a break from fasting. 
  • Breakfast foods that are included in the zone diet are: steamed or boiled eggs, whole grain cereal with skim milk and fresh fruit.
