Because these famous
diets have NOT yet been proven all their theories scientifically, we always run
into people who strongly support the belief in some of these experiments and
especially when they have seen results. We will always also encounter those
who seriously attack these methods due to the fact that they lack scientific
Even so, the majority
of medical specialists and true experts in human nutrition cautiously
contemplate and act with absolute professionalism as to the diets and prefer
to follow the traditional nutrition pyramid, a decrease in calories, a change
in attitude an increasing physical exercise.
adopting this theory will never place them on a TV program with the impact
achieved by the non expert sensationalists.
Each individual is
unique, genetically, psychologically and physically which is why has countless differences with others.
Each individual will
require individual attention and an adequate nutrition plan.
Have you ever imagined
a person with a background of cardiovascular problems or high cholesterol
levels and/or triglycerides doing "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution"?
On this "revolutionary diet" only fats and proteins and hardly any
carbohydrates are consumed. Ask your cardiologist and listen to everything he
will tell you if he doesn't ask you to kindly leave his office first.
Another example is, if
you were on one of these "famous book diets" and due to an emotional
situation you were to comedown with colitis (an inflammation of the colon) and
in spite of this you continue the book diet which prescribe a great amount of
raw, lactose and irritant food, the only thing you would accomplish is the
increase in the process of the colon inflammation which would ultimately send
you to call your doctor.
Another example: if you
are in the habit of carrying a daily moderate exercise routine and decide to
go on one of these book diets low in calories and mineral salts, potassium,
eventually you would certainly encounter a metabolic and electrolytic decay
with a consequence of excessive tiredness, fainting sensation and cramps which
could endanger your life.
And thus we could go on
for hours with one example after another.
Do NOT put your life in
danger, reading represents culture and should serve to learn what is good and
what is bad, what serves the purpose and what doesn't. But books and magazines
regarding diets cannot help in finding the same diet program for everybody.
