Diet & Exercise - and Low Carb Diets


The Diet & Exercise Summer 2004 magazine claimed on its cover to talk about Low-Carb Diets that Peel Lbs. Inside, they actually claim low carb diets don't work.

First, the article compares the three main diets - Atkins, South Beach and the Zone. It claims Atkins doesn't let you eat veggies, when the core of any Atkins diet IS healthy veggies. It also says Atkins doesn't give you enough iron, vitamin E and other vitamins ... when with the amount of meat and fish you should eat on Atkins, you should get more than most "non low carbers" ever would.

On to the "low-carb diet lowdown". They question how safe and effective low carb can be long term and say "many health and nutrition experts question the nutritional quality and one's ability to follow these diets after an extended period of time." I actually know many doctors and nutritionists who PUT people on these diets because they ARE shown to be healthy! Is it the broccoli and cauliflower she finds unhealthy - or the poultry and salmon?

The article claims that you need to use portion control on low carb because "restricting carbs may be very limiting" and you eat too much. Actually EVERY person I have talked to on low carb has ended up eating LESS food and being full - because they are now eating healthy food instead of sugar-rich, empty calories in french fries and mashed potatoes!

The article does end with a comparison of refined and unrefined carbs, saying that unrefined carbs are far better for you. But the box only briefly mentions WHAT those two are, instead of actually being helpful and focusing on that.

Given that other articles say things like "add water to your soda so it lasts longer" and eating bread without butter to be more healthy, I think this is a magazine I might bypass in the future. When I got to the section that picked on Richard Simmons for wearing lycra shorts on a plane, I knew the magazine had a new destination - my recycle pile!

Magazines I do recommend are Fitness and Yoga. Both encourage you to eat balanced, healthy meals and work activity into your daily life.
