Diving Into the Diet That Works

You’re one of those folks who plunge into every diet craze.
You find that some of them really do work—until a few months later when
you’re again drowning in excess weight. Here’s how to approach a
weight-loss program that will keep you in the swim.

January 2007

Cathy Barr has the kind of body that turns heads—five feet, seven inches with curves from top to bottom—and she follows a vegetarian diet that many would already consider healthy. Yet, when it came to losing a few extra pounds, Barr threw sensibility to the wind, opting to adopt a strict regimen that purged all fats from her diet, even those that seemed beneficial such as vegetable oils, avocados, olives, nuts and seeds, not to mention coffee and black tea. In just a few short weeks she lost weight, but the diet left her feeling wanting.

“Oddly enough, I didn’t have cravings, but I did feel at times that I was depriving myself,” says Barr, a fundraiser for a non-profit organization in Columbus, Ohio. “While I wanted to learn about better eating habits, I did see a noticeable change in my hip size, and I lost at least one full size.” When she transitioned back to a more practical diet, some weight gain was inevitable. In the process, though, Barr learned several valuable lessons: “I’m much more cognizant of fat grams and what I put in my body. After all, you are what you eat. Just switching from pasta to brown rice was a big step. It’s also about finding creative ways to flavor your food.”

Barr’s experience with what might be called a “fad” diet—a program that promises fast-and-easy weight loss—wasn’t too bad. That can’t be said for many other would-be thin people: Many of them find that, like a game of ping-pong, fad diets result in back-and-forth weight loss and regain.
“Fad diets, yo-yo dieting and weight gain all affect your metabolism in negative ways,” says Thom Ouimette, NASM, personal trainer and founder of The Body Project in Utica, New York. “Your metabolism is the number of calories your body burns a day. If someone continues to lose and then gain weight, their metabolism slows down, their body stops burning as many calories, and weight loss eventually tails off. People on fad diets who don’t establish healthy lifestyle changes almost always end up gaining back the weight they lost, and then some.”

Fad for All

Whether it’s the All-Liquid, Grapefruit (Cabbage Soup, Banana, Hotdog, Chocolate…) or any of the other innumerable weight-loss fads, odds are that your diet is destined to fail. By virtue of “going on a diet” you are setting yourself up for disappointment, since going on a diet implies that you will eventually go off of it. Just ask Ellen Marshall, an East Windsor, New Jersey stay-at-home mom who has battled weight problems for most of her life.

You’re desperate to learn how food, diet, exercise and supplements affect your
health (and your weight), but have been too afraid of information overload to ask.
We’re here to help.

Eat fruit—it’s good for you/spurn fruit—it’s full of carbs. Avoid fat like the plague/make sure 30% of your calories come from fat. Count every calorie/calories don’t really count. Eat a high-protein/low-protein/water-and-avocado/seafood diet.

And you wonder why you’re confused about nutrition?

Fear not, gentle reader. Whether you’re looking to drop a few pounds or simply want a healthy eating plan you can stick with, what you really need is a straight-up nutrition primer that will allow you to make good food and lifestyle choices without having an advanced degree in the subject. Interested? Keep reading.

What’s in My Food, Anyway?

Most of the substances found in food (besides plain water) fall into three basic categories, known as macronutrients.

Carbohydrates (carbs) are sugar compounds that provide the majority of food’s energy value. Simple carbohydrates include sugar in all its permutations: Table sugar (sucrose), brown sugar, raw sugar, molasses, honey, corn syrup (including high-fructose corn syrup, or HFCS), malt or malt syrup, fruit sugar (fructose)—anything with an “ose” on the end of it is a highfalutin’ name for sugar. In addition, refined-grain foods—including such starches as white rice, white bread, etc.—also contain simple carbs. These break down rapidly, causing blood sugar, called glucose, to rise rapidly. That rise in blood sugar provides a quick burst of energy, often followed, alas, by a crash when glucose falls as quickly as it spiked.

Supporting Weight Loss

Wouldn’t it be nice to eat anything you want and take a pill to negate all those extra calories? It would be nice, but such a substance has yet to be discovered.

However, a wealth of supplements can help keep you on the right path by supporting various metabolic processes that are involved in weight loss.

One way to bring bulges under control is to keep fat from entering fat cells in the first place. Garcinia cambogia interferes with a key enzyme that converts excess carbohydrates into fat; research indicates that garcinia may also help control appetite. CLA is another substance that hinders fat formation. A plant-based supplement called forskolin promotes fat breakdown and development of lean muscle mass; it also prods an underactive thyroid, the body’s master energy gland, into functioning properly.

Decreasing weight generally means increasing exercise, which makes finding extra energy an absolute must. All of the B vitamins are required for energy production; B12, in particular, is needed for proper metabolism. Supplements of this vitamin can be especially helpful because stress and sweat can both sweep B12 out of the body. Rhodiola is an herb that boosts both energy and mood, which helps you handle the stress that ca...

June 2005

 The first time you tried to lose weight, you went on the cottage-cheese-and-celery-sticks quickie diet. By the end of two weeks, you were ready to gnaw off your left arm. You dove into a quart of ice cream instead and eventually gained 10 extra pounds.

The second time you counted points and bought a food scale. But the whole thing reminded you too much of high-school science lab (you hated lab), so that was out. You did lose 20 pounds, though.

The third time you carefully balanced your carbs, fats and proteins. You were really good about it, too, passing up anything—including Aunt Clara’s never-say-diet cheesecake—that interfered with your exquisitely designed regimen. But then you went on vacation and decided you deserved a break from all that calculating. So you ate…and ate…and ate…for a full six months after the vacation ended. Whoops.

Then, 30 pounds heavier and more determined than ever, you swept every crumb of carbohydrate out of your kitchen. And that worked for a while (at least you could have sugarless cheesecake). But as with every other diet, you started to cheat: a bag of chips, bread with your dressing-soaked salad. And now you can feel your clothes getting tighter—again.

Don’t feel bad. You are but one soldier in a vast weight-loss army, slogging along through various diet valleys and coming out pretty much unchanged or even slightly heavier than before. Actually, none of those diets you tried are bad in and of themselves, with the exception of the first one (face it, how long can anyone realistically subsist on cottage cheese and celery?). The truth is that any diet works if you stick with it. But sticking with it is always the problem: Eating should be a pleasure, not a demonstration of how well you can operate a Palm Pilot.

To help you cut through the dietary clutter, Energy Times has decided to weigh in with its own weight-loss plan. It is (drum roll, please): EAT LESS, EXERCISE MORE
Okay, so that isn’t the most original thought in the world. But doesn’t it make sense? The one thing all those other plans have in common is that people who “go on a diet,” no matter what idea the diet is based on, tend to automatically cut their food consumption and up their exercise. But then they slack off; as they do, intake increases and movement decreases—and the bathroom scale reverts to enemy status.

While “eat less, exercise more” is as simple a plan as you’re going to find, it does help to understand some of its underlying principles—and we don’t even have to write a book. (If cutting food and increasing exercise doesn’t...
