Weight Loss

| 1 Comment
slashdot brings up the weight loss card and the Stanford researchers review efficacy and safety of low-carbohydrate diets which hits the weight management on the head While these diets are effective in the short term, weight loss results from reduced calories, not carbohydrate restriction. Removing carbs is just one way to remove calories. The study was short term, 90 days or less. I would really like to see something long term on what is really a healthy diet for humans now that we live longer than a handful of decades.

One of the comments had a link to The 5BX Plan For Physical Fitness which was something the wrestling teamin highschool followed.

I was just netsurfing and happened upon this site. I can say from my personal experience that the "low carb" approach benefits me because it better controls blood sugar levels, causing less hunger that makes me want to overeat. I've lost over 20 pounds in the last few months by combining the principles of the Hackers Diet (http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/) and the Zone Diet (balanced carb/protein/fat), with no real exercise to speak of. Losing a pound a week (a healthy rate) is a matter of taking in 500 calories less a day than your body burns. The key is tracking your calorie intake. I use BalanceLog -- which runs on both my Palm and laptop.
