A diet program is an all-inclusive way to lose weight and improve your overall health. Instead of just telling you what to eat and when to eat it, a diet program will offer hundreds of menus (or actually ship the food right to your door), give you tools to track your progress, exercise videos to compliment your new eating plan and even support groups to help you stay on track.
If you’re thinking about dieting, consider a diet program that includes the tools that will help you stay consistent and stay healthy now and into the future. Here are a few examples:
Nutrisystem: This diet program offers weight loss plans as well as medical diets, such as diabetic diets, to help people with diabetes better control the disease. Customers choose a 28-day plan and food to go with it then they enroll in an auto-delivery program to save money. The food is delivered to their door and they track their results using the meal planner guide. They also receive free access to an online community where they can get support and ask questions, as well as access to online weight trackers.
SP Diet Program: This plan starts with a medical visit with a qualified physician to “jumpstart” your diet. The plan then focuses on behavioral and lifestyle modifications so you can continue to see results well into the future. Sessions are 12 weeks long and feature the patented Serotonin Formula that acts as a natural appetite suppressant and encourages a quicker metabolism. The plan claims a 98 percent success rate.
Smart for Life: This diet program features products such as cookies, muffins, shakes, soups and desserts that have a special blend of fiber, protein and amino acids to help you lose weight. It also offers behavioral modification tools as well as a physician’s visit to measure your vitals and discuss any questions you have.
Rice Diet Program: Since 1939, the Rice diet program has helped people lose weight, relieve high blood pressure, control diabetes and improve their cardiovascular health. The plan requires followers to enroll in a program at the “Rice House” in Durham, North Carolina, that claims to instill “profound changes” and “lifelong health” to its clients. Clients are monitored daily by medical professionals while they attend workshops and classes that help them eat healthy and exercise right.
To choose the right diet program for you, compare the menus, physician visits and other medical requirements as well as cost. Don’t enroll in a plan that you can’t afford or one that requires unrealistic medical visits or expensive travel to the program location. Ask if you can test the food if they have a set menu. If you don’t like it, you probably won’t be able to stay on the diet for long enough to see results. Finally, make sure there is a support system in place for the times when you need help, whether in the form of online community forums or expert diet specialists who can answer your questions.
