The federal government conducted the first comprehensive scientific review of popular diets, and they concluded that high-carbohydrate diet regimens keep the pounds off for good.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a person can lose weight on any diet that limits food to about 1,500 calories per day. The catch is that they may not maintain the weight loss; it is short-term. Only a few diets, such as the diets suggested by the American Health Association and Weight Watchers, are successful diets. Their diet programs have the best scientific evidence to confirm their success rates and health claims. Both programs recommend the consumption of no more than 30% of calories as fat, limiting protein to 20% of the diet, and consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates to help satisfy hunger. Both diets provide adequate nutrition and showed the best improvements in the levels of cholesterol and blood fats as well as blood sugar.
