Diets For Quick Weight Loss - Which One is For You? 2. The South Beach Diet
↪ 1. Fat Loss 4 Idiots
2. The South Beach Diet :
The second of our diets for quick weight loss is the south beach diet. This diet was created by a leading US cardiologist rather by accident. He prescribed the diet to his patients in order to improve their condition but soon found that it resulted in a significant reduction in weight.

The south beach diet is fairly unique in that it is broken down into phases. The first phase lasts 2 weeks and is centered around eating very few carbohydrates, this 2 week period is designed to help resolve insulin resistance and often results in weight loss of as much as 13 lbs.

Phase two allows for some low glycemic carbs to be re-introduced; foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables and whole-grain bread. This phase lasts as long as it takes an individual to reach their target weight, 1-2lbs per week weight loss can be expected. The final phase is the lifestyle phase and should be followed forever. A wider range of food can be eaten during this phase.

Simple to follow

Low in saturated fat

Like with Fat Loss 4 Idiots there is no limit to portion size with the focus of eating till full - this can be difficult to judge

Seriously lacking in vitamins, minerals and fiber

Heavy emphasis of dairy products - for those unable to eat them there is a lack of options
