Artice on Top Diets per USA Today

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I think most of us have tried one or more of theses diets.
Sparkpeople is not listed. Is it because it is not a is a way of life?

    If you read about Valerie Bertinelli and her journey through Jenny Craig, one of the problems she had on that was, what do I do now that I lost the weight? She said that the goal was to lose weight, but when she reached that, she didn't know how to keep it going or what to do next. She had to make over her thought process and use the "diet plan" as a tool to help her achieve her real goals.

Thankfully Sparks encompasses the "whole" makeover!!

    I've come to the conclusion that the reason I am overweight is because I've dieted for years. If I would just have eaten when I was hungry and chose wisely, I would still be at a reasonable weight. I think diets cause us to be fat, not help us lose.

The polls of USA Today, and the pronouncements of US News and World Report are a joke -- but a joke that does considerable harm to people through the knowledge/language space.

More than anything, they cast in concrete ideas that are guaranteed to make people miss the forest for the trees. If people would see these lists as, analogous to:

"Here's a list of the 10 very best dictators in the world today. Pick one."

Then, valid information might receive better attention.

Note, that every time I describe my evolving personal nutrition program (PNP), I cringe at the length and complexity of a term like PNP (unpacked!). On the other hand, if I use "diet" (meaning my lifelong program of eatingand adjustment), everyone always misinterprets that as a (cureall!, fast fix!) "diet".

This is our (you, me and all SparkFolks') problem, and I doubt that using "PNP", for example, is the solution. emoticon

But, you're succeeding, and that's all that matters, here.

    Nice to see McDougall on the list...and Ornish, too, especially since he's becoming closer to plant-based.

It's absurd to call Atkins the "best" of anything, though -- well, except maybe "best diet to keep you fat and increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke."
