Atkins, Ornish, Zone, LEARN – Healthy Diets Compared

Veg-In-Basket-w200-h200Let’s face it, it is tricky to decide on a [tag-tec]healthy diet[/tag-tec]. (It is even trickier to stick to your healthy diet!)

I like very much the intelligent and considered approach of Michael Eades MD to, among other things, healthy diet. As I do, he believes a high carb/low fat diet is neither good for health – nor for the weight reduction for which it is often adopted

In this blog post, Michael Eades displays a YouTube video of a Stanford University researcher discussing the merits of four popular diets. He then discusses the recorded analysis at length, making clear his own well thought out views.

The four diets discussed are the Atkins diet, the Ornish diet, the Zone diet, and the LEARN diet.

This is a chunky post! But if you are prepared for a long watch (YouTube), and a longish and intelligent read, you can learn tons about the best diet for you from a thorough read of this post.

I will certainly be keeping an eye on Michael Eades’ blog from now on. Very interesting and well informed.
