The Cabbage Soup diet
The Cabbage Soup diet is as it sounds, eat cabbage soup instead of your main meals and very little else. It reduces the calorie levels of the body to the point of near starvation. You are allowed fruits and vegetables next to the soup, but you should eat as to feel satisfied not stuffed.
This system should not be used for more than a week as it is generally used when the weight is to be lost very quickly, for example, for a wedding. Alcohol is forbidden, water and unsweetened juices are the only beverages you should drink throughout the week. You will lose weight fairly quickly on this diet, but is only suitable as a very short-term solution, the side effects include flatulence and bad breath.
People with long-term health conditions should consult a medical professional, but for people otherwise healthy adjustment, this diet should not cause harm.
The Atkins diet
The Atkins diet is a low carbohydrate diet. If we reduce the amount of carbohydrates and eating more protein and fat, our bodies will naturally lose weight by burning our stored fat much more efficiently.
The problem with the Atkins diet is that because the body burns its own fat, depending on what you eat, it can have some unpleasant side effects in some people, such as bad breath and constipation. And with such a restricted diet, where you eat a very limited amount of fruits and vegetables and protein simply just pure and saturated fat, you increase your risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
The potential is there to lose a lot of weight very quickly on the Atkins diet you will tend to feel full longer by eating lots of carbohydrates, but this kind of diet when long-term monitoring is dangerous for your health.
South Beach diet
The South Beach diet is quite similar to the Atkins diet in that it is another low in carbohydrates and proteins rich diet, except that it is much more balanced. Instead of sticking rigidly to low carb foods throughout the dieting phase, it focuses on how each of good and bad carbohydrate foods impact your sugar levels in the blood.
You hold two weeks of strict retaining what you can and can not eat and from there you can start introducing carbohydrates and healthy fruit to your diet again, it is all about experimentation with your diet and watching the weight patterns, learn what triggers your body to gain weight. If you start to gain weight again, you can easily return to the strict diet for two weeks.
As low-carb diets go, it is a much healthier diet because it not only encourages dieters not to cut anything and eat everything in moderation to maintain a healthy weight. This means that you are much more likely to stick to this plan and achieve your goals successfully.
The Zone diet
The Zone diet is different from other systems in that it discourages consumption of carbohydrates, bad fats, processed foods and sugars and focuses more on us eating more meat, fruits and vegetables. Dieters are encouraged to also calculate the amount of calories they need one and it also encourages regular eating habits and regular consumption of good fats and low glycemic foods.
It is a healthy way of eating and controlled which ensures effective weight loss, although many people may find it costly and difficult to follow.
Detox diets involve either not to use or attempt to flush out the substances that are considered useless or harmful. Examples include limiting the consumption of foods without dyes or preservatives, taking supplements, or drink large amounts of water.
The latter practice in particular, drew criticism, but to drink much more water than the recommended levels can cause hyponatraemia.
