What Experts Say
Dr. Kate Craigen is the clinical director of binge eating and bariatric support services. Waltham, Mass. What many consider the three best weight loss diets sold today she had this to say.
Well Funded Marketing Campaigns
“Millions of Americans turn to these types of programs, drawn in by marketing campaigns built on the promise of positive change for those seeking to lose weight. “It’s easy!” some say. “I lost X pounds in 30 days!” They sell visions of a ‘new life’ where weight loss is guaranteed and accompanied by happiness, acceptance and vitality.
Most Weight Loss Programs Fail
In most cases, weight loss programs fail to result in actual weight loss: Here’s the sobering reality: diets lead to weight loss in only a small fraction of people. Genes and metabolism play a significant role in the way your body gains and loses weight. Programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig or Nutria-System may not work like they promise to, even if you’re following all the rules. The sheer disappointment and devastation of trying so hard – without the desired results – can invoke feelings of depression and low self-esteem.
Fails to Keep the Weight Off
In fact, programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutria- System not only fail to result in sustained weight loss for most people, they can make you more prone to binge eat. And it has nothing to do with your commitment to the program”.
It’s Not Cheap
Lets not forget that these diets are also expensive.
- The basic program for Weight Watchers is $11.70/week
- The basic program for Nutria-System is $72.46/week
- The basic program for Jenny Craig is $82.55/week
Those of you old enough remember the diet pill craze Fen-Phen, This was the cocktail form of two separate drugs , Fenfluramine and Phentermine, which were separately approved by the FDA for short term treatment of Obesity.
The combination was never approved because of unknown side effects. But that didn’t stop Doctors from writing 18 million prescriptions for Phen-Fen in 1996, and 2.4 million more for the similar drug Redux, before reports of dangerous side effects led to the “voluntary” withdrawal at the FDA’s insistence.
Not all the people taking Fen-Phen were clinically obese or even close, which is one of the reasons they were seeking medical advise at the mini-mall, instead at their usual Doctors office.
A Dangerous Diet
I only bring this up because we’re seeing a similar fad taking place today, and it’s why you should never try the HCG Diet Plan. The Diet has been called dangerous, fraudulent and illegal by the FDA.
HCG is a Fertility Drug
As a prescription medication HCG is used mainly to treat fertility issues. HCG is not approved for over the counter use, nor has it been proved to work for weight loss. Often called the HCG 500 Calorie Diet, it’s easy to see how the HCG diet results in weight loss, but according to experts simply cutting calories to lose weight will almost certainly backfire.
500 Calories a Day
The diet consists of taking shots of 125 units of HCG six out of seven days for eight weeks (costing from( $200 to $600 each) and only eating two 250 calorie meals a day. No exercise, no oil and only one tablespoon of milk every 24 hours.
When it first came out in the 1970’s the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proved the HCG diet was (and still is) ineffectual. A second study done in 1990 by the South African Medical Journal showed HCG no more effective then a placebo.
Starving The Body
Going to 500 calories a day results primarily in weight loss to muscle rather then fat.This sets the body up for a slowed metabolic rate and weight gain. Since the diet is only temporary, you gain everything back and then some.
How Many Times Have You Lost the Same Ten Pounds
Everyone agrees that yo-yo dieting is a terrible thing, and those that have done it would be hard pressed to disagree. Whether or not it’s physiologically more difficult to lose the same 10 pounds for the fifth or sixth time, it is certainly harder on the head.
Doctors are now discovering the important role our Endocannabinoid System plays in fine tuning our physiological functions. It promotes homeostasis, affecting everything from sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood and even reproduction.
Basically the Endocannabinoid System helps modulate the regulation of homeostasis across all major body systems, ensuring all systems work in concert with one another.
