Have seen this refered a few times and it's interesting to see the carb laden ones at the top and the protein based ones at the bottom... They have to be acknowledged but if theyr'e at the bottom maybe no one will notice and they'll go away, right?
Oooh, I so feel a rant coming on about all this, but will try to keep it short with bullet points :)
- Think who's funding the ADA, and who is ultimately determining/judging the "best": the corn and grain people.
- of /course/ people want to stick with 'diets' that have the stuff they want to eat. How many ads are there for 'diets' that claim to help you lose weight "without giving up your favorite foods"... Because people 1) don't want to change, and 2) don't want to admit what they're doing created the problem, so continuing to eat the same things that created the problem shouldn't matter.
- Ultimately, people don't want to want to come to the "dark side" if there's no cookies. LOL!
I personally liked this overview: health.usnews.com/best-diet/best-overall-d
It's the same list but there's a tally of people who've had success or 'failure' with an eating plan... the top successes: Weight Watchers, Atkins and Paleo.
Hmmmm... Accountability, developing a better relationship with food/nutrition, and eating to satisfy your body's needs helps you achieve a healthy weight. Nah, must be a mistake! LOL!
Take the words “genetic freak” out of your vocabulary and substitute the words “hard working, committed, and focused” and you will have removed one obstacle to doing things you never thought possible. Top Dawg
