Are These Diets Trying To Help You Lose Weight, Or Trying To Make You Sick?
The Atkins and Paleo diets are two of the more popular fad diets of the current weight loss genre. While there are aspects of each which are admirable and could potentially lead to weight loss, of more concern should be the health implications of each diet. Neither is realistic as a long term or lifestyle changing approach to diet. In some cases they are not realistic because they advocate giving up nutrients that the body will eventually crave leading to diet failure, and in other cases it’s because they advocate a diet that is fraught with the potential for heart disease and other diet related health concerns.

Weight loss is not a goal that should be pursued at the cost of long term good health. There is, however, an easy answer to how to eat properly to both lose weight and live healthy.
