Does the Ketogenic Diet Work for Weight Loss? .

Does the Ketogenic Diet Work for Weight Loss? Written by Daniel Preiato, RD, CSCS on November 12, 2019. To lose weight, you must eat fewer calories than you burn, which is also referred to as a calorie deficit. One study in 17 men with obesity or excess weight found that the keto diet was associated with a small increase in the number of calories burned. When it comes to weight loss on the keto diet, several other factors need to be considered, such as your specific carb intake and sleep and exercise routine. Sustainability of the diet.

In How We Did It, Nancy B. Kennedy tells the stories of those who have succeeded at their goal of weight loss, whether that means 20 pounds or 200 pounds. These stories will inspire, inform and encourage readers to find the weight loss plan that will work for them. Weight loss plans are too often presented as one-size-fits-all propositions. How We Did It compares the wide gamut of weight loss programs--South Beach, the Zone, Atkins, Thin Within, First Place, Weight Watchers and many more--and shows how weight loss seekers have succeeded using popular plans or by creating their own recipe for success. This book is a resource for both inspiration and information. With chapters that cover everything from childhood obesity to bariatric surgery, the book will help millions of adults who are struggling with their weight. In inspiring profiles, readers meet others just like them who may have tried and failed to lose weight, but who finally found a way to success that suited their lifestyle, personality, spirituality and internal values.

I read this book looking for a way to control my weight (not lose pounds) but I found that it was so much more. This is not a diet book! This book is a collection of heartfelt stories of many people who struggled with weight loss, and it is a book about changing your lifestyle to not just lose weight but keep it off.

I have been blessed with never having had to worry about weight problems in my life (until a few recent pounds crept on). In fact, I had preconceived ideas that those who were overweight just needed to make a bigger effort to lose weight. My eyes were really opened as I read about real people trying to lose weight and understood for the first time that it is not always so simple. The human body often perceives weight loss attempts as a "famine" and fights back. There are often vicious cycles that people go through before they finally find the right plan that works for them.

Reading this book felt like sitting down with a friend for a chat. Nancy's writing is down to earth and fun to read. I would highly recommend this book, not only for those looking to make a lifestyle change in order to lose pounds, but also for friends and family who many benefit from a better understanding of the issues involved.

My family and I participated in a Jenny Craig weight loss program (that author Nancy Kennedy covers in her book) in which we each lost a significant amount of weight. I didn't lose the most weight in our family... but I did lose over 80 pounds.

The stories you ready about the many ways to lose weight and discover that 'skinny friend' that you know is there will delight and thrill you if you take this first step.

Nancy has brought our story and countless others that will bring a smile in every chapter... and should you or someone you love decides to take this first step into losing weight... I know they will find this book inspirational!

Good Luck!

This book had many different diet styles. It was very informative and interesting to read. I do wish it was a bit longer or had more people in it.

I was interested in this book because I've been thinking about joining Weight Watchers and from the description, this book had a chapter featuring someone who lost weight on Weight Watchers. I wanted to get a better idea of what following this lifestyle would be like.

There are some things I really liked about this book. I liked the fact that it featured a wide variety of diets. There is no one-size-fits-all diet here. I also like that the people who lost the weight did so in their own words. But I also have some concerns on the information on this book. I also liked the summary of each diet.

First, I didn't like that there was no table of contents. Second, I didn't like the checklist at the end of each chapter. I would have much rather had a list of pros and cons for each diets. I also felt like this book was way too slanted towards the positive. It emphasized the positive aspects of each diet, but did't hardly mention some of the drawbacks or difficulties of each diet.

First, I think some of the diets in this book are way too restrictive and difficult to maintain long-term. There is a lot of debate among experts about whether low carb diets like Atkins are safe to use long-term. This is never even mentioned. Another diet, the Recovery from Food Addiction Diet "puts a total ban on flour, sugar, and wheat. It also prohibits cheese, butter, sour cream and other fats, alcohol, caffeine, nuts, seeds, rice cakes, popcorn, many fruits, and some grains and cereals." A diet that limits nuts and fruit just sounds crazy to me. It also fails to differenciate between good fats and bad fat. It assumes all fat is bad, but I don't think that is necessarily the case. Limiting fats is one thing, but turning all fat into the enemy is something else entirely.

Second, several of the solutions in this book are very cost-prohibitive. My mom and a friend used to work out at a well-known gym. They take some classes there, and were able to get a free meeting with a personal trainer. They decided to check it out. My mom said that they gave up on the idea of having a personal trainer. Why? The sessions with a personal trainer would have cost about $150 a week. That is simply not realistic for most people, especially in this economy. I also personally feel that a personal trainer is not necessary. There are many excellent workouts available on DVD including yoga, pilates and a variety of others. Many of these DVDS also feature big name trainers like Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, Billy Blanks, and Denise Austin, to name just a few.

Secondly, this book also includes chapters on Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem. Yes, they are easy and convenient and you don't have to cook, but they are also incredibly expensive. This book didn't mention anything about the cost at all. Jenny Craig has a special that sounds like a good deal. 20 pounds for $20. But food is extra and that is where they really nail you as far as price. I did a little bit of research online. Food from Jenny Craig averages between $500-$650 a month! That is simply too cost prohibitive for most people, even in the best of times. There is also an additional charge for shipping.

Nutrasystem is more affordable, but still very expensive to me. NutraSystem costs on average anywhere from $229-$430 a month. I did find one site that said the range started at $118 a month. But I don't know how accurate it is. The cost depends on which plan you choose to use. Again, there is a charge for shipping. I am not criticizing either of these plans. I've never tried either, but I know people who have. They do work. But realistically, who can afford to stay on a plan like this for very long?

There is some good here, but in my opinion, there are just too many negatives to ignore. My advice? Skip this book.
