There are many ideas on the best diet for weight loss. The low fat, high carbohydrate diet endorsed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), while considered a heart healthy diet, has come under considerable fire as many believe excess carbohydrates can cause weight gain. Diets such as the Atkins diet or Zone diet suggest people eat more protein and fat while restricting carbohydrate to lose weight. Others, like those on a vegetarian diet, abandon meat altogether. So which weight loss diet is right? Experts agree that most Americans need to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, while eating sensible amounts of lean protein. Consult your physician or other health and nutrition professionals to find the right diet and weight loss program for you.
