Different opinions and different fads leave people wondering what's the best way to lose weight.
A study last year found low-carb diets and low-fat diets were about equal...averaging losing 12 to 13 pounds. A study last year found for the long term: increase minimally processed foods like produce and meat prepared at home to cut down on calories, limit added sugar, refined flour.
To lose weight fast eat only raw foods, or go vegan, or cut out gluten, or another diet fad.
Low carbs or no refined carbs has made a comeback, as opposed to low fat...which led to fat free...gets us back to refined sugars.
Kelsey Seybold's Dr. Christine Le said the best lifestyle choice is the Mediterranean Diet.
"Which involves a lot of fresh veggies, fish, still meats but they're grilled and a lot of olive oil. Now, of course with the Mediterranean lifestyle, people tend to not lose weight, which with the new year, a lot of people are looking at," said Le. "Fat used to be the bad thing to always avoid. But, we're looking at is, it's actually the carbs."
She said when it comes to a burger and fries, it's the fries cause the most harm that are bad because of the carbs. They're more likely to elevate sugars, more weight in the middle, along with a higher risk of heart attack, stroke and even cancer.
