Low Carbohydrate Diets

The emerging trend in dieting are low carbohydrate diets such as Atkins, South Beach, and Sonoma diets.  Everybody has heard of "low carb" weight loss.  But do they really work?  If so, are they the solution to weight loss that everybody is looking for?  No.  Most low carb diets have several problems, which make losing weight very difficult for the average dieter.

Learn to Control Your Fat Burning Hormones

For example, the popular Atkins diet severely restricts your carbohydrate consumption during the first phase of the program.  In fact, the carb restrictions during the first couple of weeks are very severe by almost any standard.  The Atkins program allows just 20 grams of "net carbs" per day during the first phase of the diet, which usually last for two weeks.  Just to give you an idea of how few carbs that really is a large apple has more than 20 grams of net carbohydrates.

This low level of carbs is often too severe for the average dieter to tolerate for two straight weeks.  In fact, eating such a low level of carbs can make a person feel weak and miserable all day long because the body needs more carbs than that for energy.

Another low carbohydrate diet, the South Beach diet, is not quite as severe as the Atkins diet, but still severely restricts the carb consumption and is just as hard for the average person to follow.

Conversely, a successful diet needs to be easy to follow because that is the only way that an individual will stick to the diet long term and lose weight.  A successful diet plan should not make the average person feel miserable and weak all day long so that the dieter can adhere to the program to reach their "goal weight" and maintain that desired weight for years to come.

We are not saying that all low carb diets are as restrictive as the Atkins or South Beach diet, but we are saying that most low carbohydrate diets are so hard to follow that the average dieter will probably wind up feeling hungry and week all day long, which is not a food thing for dieting success.

If low carb diets are not the answer then what is?  A successful diet needs to be reasonable in the amount of all three types of calories (protein, carbs, and fat) that are consumed.  The truth is that your body needs a reasonable amount of protein, carbs, and fat calories to function properly, leave the dieter without hunger cravings, and long term maintain the desired weight.

To lose weight quickly, you must eat all three types of calories in the right proportions.  This is where most diets fail because nobody knows what the right proportions of calories should be. 

A new type of diet uses accelerated fat burning to enable a dieter to reach and maintain their "goal weight."  Since no one knows the specific calorie proportions, this new diet does not impose "portion limits" at any meal, dieters can eat as much as they need at each meal and use spices and condiments as well.

Great post & Fantastic blog! I would definitely love to begin a blog too but I have no clue where to begin. I possess the ability to do it (not that challenging on the technical part) but I really feel like I am too lazy to post regularly. That is the problem, if you start you have to go all the way. However blogs like yours inspire me to have a go at it.

political unrest

While you should have been honest with him, his reaction was totally unjustified. He way over reacted. First for him to assume that he COULD make those plans, without having spoken with you was just a tad premature.  And how the heck were you to know that he had planned anything. I mean, come on, by that insane thinking he should have known you weren't planning on going by the way you avoided the topic. And after only a month for him to be falling in love, and having only met two times in person.. Right.... If that is how he acts, then I dare say it's better to know now then down the road.

The U.S. elections are held the first Tuesday in November.  Obama and his Vice Presidential nominee, Joe Biden (D-Delaware) campaigned against John McCain and his VP nominee, Sarah Palin (R-Alaska).  Although Obama won the election, his inauguration into office is scheduled for January 20, 2009.  We are currently in a transition period when the president-elect appoints his cabinet positions.  Bush could not run in this year's national election due to a Constitutional Amendment that limits presidential terms to two (8 years total).  Hope this helps.

building a solar power

Well.... In an ideal world, yes.  But I think we might not need to be so extreme.  With the possibilities of wind and geothermal growing quickly, the diversity of resources may be easier.

build solar power

When people burn fossil fuels a bi-product carbon dioxide is made. This gas causes global warming usually trees would convert this gas to oxygen, but thanks to the gas hungry economy there is way to much Co2 and on top of that there cutting down to many trees and replacing them with best buys and targets. But solar power is an alternative and we won't run out of it any time soon. Some of the benefits are that a lot of green house gases won't be made, the planet will last longer since there won't be as many pollutants like nuclear and fossil fuel energy creates , and we won't run out of it eventually as mentioned earlier.

solar power energy source

We are thinking about building a house in the next few years using as many alternative energy sources as possible.  From the reading I've done, whether or not you can power the entire house feasibly on solar depends on a few things... first, how energy efficient is the house and the appliances, and secondly, where you live.  Because the more sunlight that's available, the more likely you are to be able to power the house entirely with it.

how to make a solar panels

There are tons of events centered around experimental solar cars. Most of those cars are very light, uncomfortable and are covered with yards of solar panels. Yet, they still cannot preform that well. Besides, several companies are working on ways to make hybrid (gas/electric) cars use solar panels to decrease the amount of work the engine needs to do to charge the batteries. So far, they haven't had much luck.

Yes, but the yield isn't as high when comparing the amount of energy required to extract the product to gasoline. At the same time it takes approx. 125% more ethanol to perform the same amount of work that gasoline can perform.

Thanks for being so gentle to share this information. Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them that you have made a new friend, they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you, "What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?" Instead, they demand: "How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?" Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.
