The Shopping Bags.......research on diets
They had a 1 hour long show this afternoon (it will be on W West later this afternoon again) they compared Atkins, South Beach, DASH, Dr. Phil, and I think 2 others.
At every weigh in Atkins won.....in the end the highest loser was Atkins and I think the runner up was Atkins. (It went on for 10 months and the highest loser was at about 40 lbs)
In the end they said Atkins lost the most weight, they really liked the Atkins recipes best of all BUT they didn't pick Atkins as the best diet. I don't remember what one they chose as best because I was seeing red!!!!
(Oh correction I do remember. They chose DASH because they said it was more balanced and allowed more carbs.)
They actually said "We found we didn't feel well on the Atkins diet." and then they said "But to be fair we only did the first week and it gets better as you go further into it."
I almost hit the tv........why the *ell can't they be fair to this diet!!! The book TOLD THEM they would not feel great the first week but after the firest few days you'll feel great........and they still ignored that and reported that "they didn't feel good on that diet." GOOD GRIEF!!! What do you have to do to get a fair shake in this idiot world?
However we all knew we would win if the participant was actually doing Atkins over a period of time and they had to admit that every week the Atkins people won at weigh ins and in the end the pictures they showed to show how great the contestants look with the weight loss......both were Atkins dieters. Yea!!!!!!
I'm going to watch it again when it replays so I pay closer attention to what diets and how the others measure up.
