It's a well known fact thatrepparttar weight loss industry is a profitable one. There are thousands of books, gyms and health spas, nutrition and exercise services available torepparttar 131401 overweight consumer andrepparttar 131402 net is riddled with them.

Ifrepparttar 131403 consumer is not receiving advise from a dietition or doctor, it is up to them to verify for themselves what is fact and what is fiction. For many years,repparttar 131404 low carb establishment has maintained that you can lose weight by changingrepparttar 131405 amount and in some casesrepparttar 131406 types of carbs, protein and fats consumed.

And for many yearsrepparttar 131407 mainstream medical establishment has scoffed atrepparttar 131408 Atkins weight loss theory of losing weight through ketosis not through maintaining a negative calorie balance and labelled it irresponsible and unhealthy.

There are cries of cardiovascular and cholesterol risks not just because ofrepparttar 131409 red meat, but because ofrepparttar 131410 lower carbohydrate and therefore lower fiber intake recommended. Many authorities will not recommend it as a viable weight loss solution, and indeed is censored by relevant government authorities in many countries. Despiterepparttar 131411 bad press, there have been thousands of reported cases of individuals losing weight by eating more protein and fewer carbohydrates.

Duringrepparttar 131412 last couple of years, findings of research have been filtering through that there may be some merit torepparttar 131413 low carb diets, that have been promoted in weight loss books and websites. Atkins press releases seizerepparttar 131414 opportunity to validate what they've been saying for years.

Some would say (particularly dietitions and nutritionists) thatrepparttar 131415 people who joinedrepparttar 131416 low-carb band wagon were naive, unkowledgeable and ready to try anything. There are those who have taken aspects ofrepparttar 131417 low carb diets out of context and have done silly things like eating nothing but pork rinds and Atkins bars and wandered why they weren't losing weight. This isrepparttar 131418 danger of popular diet books where no individual professional support can be given.
