Even though their process in achieving weight loss and good health are in complete contrast; researchers found that each of the diets accomplish the same results. Starting with each diet’s idea, low fat diets state that fat is bad for the body they also address that not all fats are dangerous. Low fat dieters actually admit that some fats are needed to stay healthy. The low fat diet does not restrict a person from foods that contain fat. In an online article Choose a Diet low in Fat, Saturated Fat and Cholesterol, it was stated that “Fats supply energy and essential fatty acids and promote absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K”.
Salads and vegetables also make up a large portion of the approved list of foods. The diets differ in the amount of saturated fats they recommend, and whether or not they allow nuts, a good source of unsaturated fats. Although distinct, both diets claim they can lower cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of heart disease and best of all help people to lose weight. References Agatston, Arthur. The South Beach Diet.
Comparing Low-Carbohydrate Diets and Low-Fat Diets The two diets I will be focusing on are comparing the low-carbohydrate diet or the Atkins diet to low-fat diets. The low-carbohydrate diet on one hand restricts the amount of carbohydrate a person consumes, resulting in greater weight loss after six months compared to low-fat diets. The low-fat diet, on the other hand, allows people to lose weight by restring the amount of fat they consume on a daily basis thus causing the person to lose weight as well, but not as much as they would have had they been on a low-carbohydrate diet for the pass six months. Although a person initially loses less weight on the low-fat diet, they eventually lose the same amount of weight if they had been on the low-carbohydrate diet after twelve months. Each of these diets has their different approaches on how to lose weight, but in the end, they both obtain the same results.
first off both diets are fad diets and they both dont make you lose real weight that people are trying to lose , it just makes you mostly lose water weight . Also they both are low carb, high-protein diets. Both diets also are advertised on tv’s and commercials. Also both diets make you feel less hungry and eat less. Now lets start giving differences.
Dr. Atkins’s says in his book Diet Revolution which promotes low-carb diet ‘To achieve low-carb intake do not eat whole grains, fruit, and starchy vegetables.’ According to WHO health guidelines, whole grains, and dietary fiber are an important part of a healthy diet. Whole grains are full of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber and contribute to many health benefits such as body weight management and gastrointestinal health. Starchy vegetables are also a good source of dietary fiber. Increased fiber intake can lower blood pressure, serum cholesterol and can enhance significant weight loss in the obese individual. We may not immediately suffer from inadequate whole grains, fruit, and fiber intake but in the longer term, it is associated with increased risk of developing chronic diseases like diabetes, coronary heart disease, and cancer.

An alternative to substituting simple carbohydrates with high ... ... middle of paper ... ... foods are encouraged. In addition to these very serious, life-threatening diseases, a study, funded by the Atkins Center for Complimentary Medicine was conducted that showed constipation in 70% of the people on the Atkins diet, headaches in 54%, and hair loss in 10% of the subjects. These health problems are due to the lack of nutrients and balance in the Atkins diet. In contrast, a diet low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates provides fiber to help with healthy digestion, and other nutrients to promote healthy growth in all areas. There is more to dieting than losing weight.
