http://www.naturalnews.com

Anyone who has tried to lose weight has heard the age-old formula: eat less, exercise more. This is intended to create a calorie deficit, where the body is using up more than it's taking in.

http://www.everydiet.org

The Sacred Heart Diet is a fad diet that has been circulating for many years. The diet was supposedly thought to come from the cardiology department at Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital where it was used for overweight heart patients. However, like most of these diets – this is an urban myth. The Sacred Heart Diet has been called a number of different names (such as the Spokane Heart Diet, the Cleveland Clinic Diet, Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital Diet and the Miami Heart Institute Diet). The diet also bears a striking resemblance to the cabbage soup diet.

Science Behind “The Biggest Loser” Diet

http://rebeccascritchfield.wordpress.com

I’m hooked on “The Biggest Loser”. Maybe its because I get to watch lives being transformed and new behaviors shaped. Or maybe its because I feel gratified that these changes are a result of improvements in nutrition and exercise, areas in which I have expertise, rather than the promise of a fad diet, magic pills or surgery as a solution. But I was always so curious about what goes on behind the scenes. So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to learn from the registered dietitian and physician for the show at a recent conference.

10 Diets That Work

http://www.diet-blog.com

has a health feature describing the ten diets that work. From the article we can presume that a "working" diet is one that causes weight loss. I would add that a working diet is one that leads to optimum health.
