The Atkins diet isn't quite as often heard about these days, now that Hoodia and the Acai berry have made their way onto the scene. But some people still treat the Atkins diet as the diet bible, and if you're interested in trying it, you should know the pro's and the con's.
The Weight Watchers point list has been derided as being too strict by some, but it is a fairly easy tool to use, whether you're eating at home or eating out. With the two plan books (one for restaurants), you can easily see how many points you are eating per day, compared to how many you are allowed.
Even if you decide the Weight Watchers plan isn't for you, you can still use the points system to keep track of where you are and where you want to be. You will learn how to monitor your daily intake, and this helps you become accountable to yourself every day.
The Point list is simple to understand and use. Foods that are low in calories and high in fiber are given low point values. Foods high in calories and low in fiber have higher point values. One treat can really throw you off track, though, so you have to be careful not to “cheat”. One Starbuck's muffin may have six to ten points, and that blows your day right there. But if you eat lots of fruits and vegetables instead, those mostly have low points.

What should the proportion of fat, carbs and protein be so that you experience maximum weight loss and cholesterol-lowering effects from your diet?
Have you ever felt like you’re just spinning your wheels? That’s how I’ve felt after more than 16 years of only somewhat successful weight training. I’ve tried it all: supplements, gym memberships, cycling, swimming, training to failure…I won’t say I haven’t seen results, because I have, but you would think after 17 years I wouldn’t still be fighting the battle of the bulge.
It is generally recognized that people who choose weight-loss approaches based on lowering carbohydrate consumption can lose weight remarkably quickly. It’s not so generally clear why. Speculation has centered on the possibility that lower carbohydrates lead to less water retention, to a higher metabolism rate, or simply to boredom with eating due to the food restrictions.
