Diets By Food

Just a spoonful of vinegar helps the grapefruit go down…That may not be as catchy, but can help to illustrate an example of food type diets which revolve around a single food becoming the cornerstone to a weight loss plan. Food type diets run the risk of eliminating important nutrients and vitamins.

For example, the cabbage and chicken soup diets can boast a high fiber, high result product, but they lack certain necessary vitamins and minerals. These types of diets are great for dropping pounds before a special occasion such as a wedding, reunion, or vacation. In other words, diets by food type are the perfect way to kick start weight loss, but not the right path to travel for long term goals, even if it is an appealing thought to be on the chocolate diet forever!
