There is a wide range of diets that result in rapid weight loss results so these are the most popular weight loss diets to be followed. The two most popular diets that are available are the south beach diet and the Atkins diet.
The south beach diet was developed by a cardiologist who was looking for a good way for their patients to lose weight in order to address the problems with their heart. The side effect of this diet is very often a rapid lose of weight. This diet places a ban on foods that have a high level of carbohydrates.
The banned food will include fruit, bread, milk, sugar, rice, potatoes and alcohol. This diet places a ban on a lot of food that often makes up a large part of the diet so the first stage of the diet is always the hardest to comply with. This weight loss diet requires a vast amount of willpower and self-discipline.
The Atkins diet reduces the amount of carbohydrates in the diet and this leads to a rapid amount of weight loss. The idea behind the diet is that it means eating less carbohydrates and this causes weight loss at a fairly rapid speed.
The downside to this type of diet is that you will also lose muscle and also begin to release the ketones. The ketones lead to a wide range of problems of including dehydration, dizziness and headaches.
There are a lot of people who feel that these are a good weight loss diet however neither of these diets is healthy and they are unlikely to be sustained long term. It is far better to follow a weight loss diet that allows you to eat a wide range of foods but in moderation, as these diets will be easier to follow and sustain over a long time.
