Default Dietitian reveals the five food plans that get results, including Low Carb

Good to see, but I do wish the media would stop calling low carb/keto/paleo 'fad' diets. Click on link to read the article in full

The fad diets that DO work: Dietitian reveals the five food plans that get results
  • Dietitian Susie Burrell revealed why fasting, keto and paleo can work as diets
  • She also said very low calorie diets and low carb approaches will get results
  • Susie said the worry with a lot of diets is when you stop, the weight goes on
  • She said you should avoid the Israeli army diet and cabbage soup approach

A dietitian has revealed which fad diets work, and those you should steer clear of if you want long-term weight loss results.

Susie Burrell, from Sydney, said fad diets pop up regularly but some are more beneficial than others.

She shared five plans to try including keto and paleo, and explained why the cabbage soup diet, Israeli army diet and lemon detox diet will never get you results.

Writing on her blog, Susie explained that the Keto diet might sound like a new fad, but it has actually been used to manage a range of clinical conditions by doctors for years.

A keto diet requires followers to reduce their carb intake to a very low level, so that ketosis or fat-burning is induced as the body breaks down fat stores to be used as fuel.

Carbs are replaced with fat and protein, so you can expect to see plenty of avocado, butter, eggs and cream in the keto diet.

'Achieving the ratios required to follow the keto diet is somewhat challenging, but if you can and do follow it, it will work very effectively,' Susie said.

The reality for many people when they try keto is that they are in fact just following a low-carb approach.

From the article: "Again, the worry is that if you ever jump off the low carb bandwagon, you will quickly put the weight back on."

Uh, yeah. But that's why for those of us with insulin issues, low carb is not a diet. It's a way of life. It has to be. The problem, as I see it, is all these stooges can't accept that for decades they handed out bad advice.

Going off any weight-loss diet and eating SAD again will cause rapid weight gain. There is nothing unique about low-carb that will magically continue working if you are no longer low-carb.

Keto momentarily moved out of the "fad" camp.

I suspect the word fad is used these days to incite emotion, enough to manipulate the reader to continue reading. Nothing to do with facts. Just hype.

You know, The carbcounts for Avocados is really through he roof as I was reminded yesterday when someone posted it. IDK why Atkins included it except possibly for the fat but maybe the potassium count too. Atkins said eat 1/2 but then the other 1/2 turns brown and oxidizes sooo.... it's a waste unless you eat it all or share one.

Was that where I posted stats for various supposedly high fructose foods?

I didn't mean to mislead you on the carb content. In order to keep the fructose per serving comparison consistent between the foods that were mentioned, the serving amount for the avocado was supposed to be for 1 cup of pureed avocado - which is a LOT of avocado - almost 2 whole average sized avocados.

If you're looking at one whole Hass avocado, the amount is 11.8 g total carbs, but 9.2 g of that is fiber, leaving only 2.6 g net carbs, assuming you deduct fiber. If you only eat half the avocado, there's only 5.9 total carbs, 1.3 net carbs.

For the leftover half of the avocado, you can prevent oxidation by putting the leftover avocado in the freezer (that changes the texture, so it won't be good sliced when it's thawed, but it's fine mashed), or if you'd prefer to refrigerate it overnight, so it'll still be good sliced, completely cover it with lemon juice to prevent browning.


Florida avocados are different - shiny, bright green, and much larger (about 3 times the size of a hass avocado). They have a lower fat percentage than hass, but higher carb, fiber, and sugar percentage. To do a side by side comparison, choose the same size portion (for instance 100 g) for each type of avocado.

Good observation. Why would someone when stopping the method that enabled weight loss expect to stay the same?

Most of the time people don't really expect to go back to the way they used to eat and still keep the weight off, although often they seem to think that after being on a diet for XX weeks/months, they'll never go back to overeating again. That doesn't work of course, but they realize they're going to regain when they give in and go back to eating non-diet foods.



In general though, LC/keto is really the ONLY diet that's held to that kind of standard - that you should somehow be able to go back to eating what you used to eat, and still keep the weight off. It makes no sense, but that's the nay-sayers final dig at LC/keto, pointing out that since it's such an unsustainable diet, you'll just regain as soon as you stop doing it.
