Surprising Reasons for Weight Gain
The Atkins diet states you will lose "only body fat" by eating regular meals, taking in adequate calories, and keeping your insulin levels down. The Atkins diet may be one of the most well-known fad diets. With that much money at stake, it's no surprise there are an overwhelming number of "fad" diets and other weight-loss products on the market. The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are now emphasized over saturated and trans fats. A calorie is a calorie, the advice goes.
What Makes Nutrisystem Different
Late in 2010 the peer-reviewed Journal of Obesity published a meta-analysis of studies testing the garcinia as a weight loss aid. Of the 23 trials they identified, 12 were methodologically sound enough to include in their analysis. The analysis revealed that some statistically significant weight loss occurred, but the magnitude of the effect is small and the clinical relevance is uncertain.
They also found that gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as likely in the hydroxycitric acid group as in the placebo group. When you are considering the potential benefits of products look for meta-analysis studies that take in all the sound research available.
