Pick Any Diet For Successful Weight Loss

Consistency Is A Major Key To Successful Weight Loss

People seem to root for diets the way they root for sports teams. You’ll never get someone on the Paleo Team to cheer for the Zone Team. And just like with crazed sports fans, it turns out that loyal adherence might be more important than the team itself, at least when it comes to weight loss.

A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association examined the long-term effects of the Atkins Diet (low carbohydrate, high fat, high protein) versus the Zone Diet (40 percent carbs, 30 percent protein, 30 percent fat) on weight loss in overweight adults who had a body mass index of 25 or greater. Interestingly, significant weight loss was observed with any low-carbohydrate or low-fat diet. Also, the weight-loss differences between these distinct and different nutritional strategies were small.

This study supports the idea that consistency is a major key to successful transformation and weight loss. Simply, adopt any nutrition program that you will be able to consistently adhere to across time, and, ultimately, you’re very likely to achieve your weight-loss goals.
