Every diet has something valuable to offer in terms of learning, and yes you can learn from going on every diet. It seems many people actually do this; not you, but other people. And we’ll go as far as saying that sometimes this is helpful. Sometimes you can’t appreciate the real thing or the right thing, until you’ve done the wrong thing enough times.
Many of the diets on this list made it for certain reasons, not because they don’t produce results or because we are asserting that everything they say is wrong or ineffective; all diets produce results. It’s easy to get a result, it’s a matter of what results, the long term benefits and at what cost.
The main point of this list is to show you a "sampling" of how many diets are out there and that apparently they are not working when you consider the obesity trend that exists and the poor health statistics that follow.
FYI: the only diet that will ever work is one that is normal and natural, Nutrient Rich, lifestyle- based and one that you enjoy in the process of accomplishing your goals. It has to be a diet you can call your own, and that’s an "eating plan".
A Nutrient Rich whole food’s eating plan is the way to go and the reason why you’re at nutrientrich.com. This is what it takes to be healthy and successful.
A couple notes:
* If we’ve included a diet here that is now changing it’s tune or is promoting Nutrient Rich food, don’t get upset, just tell us, we’ll review it and we’ll take it off this list ok?
*If you think that pointing out all these diets as if to say they are no good and you need to be on a "Nutrient Rich" diet, and you think that’s self serving, keep this in mind; we promote several eating plans that we know are nutrient rich. These plans are not all branded "Nutrient Rich", yet they are nutrient rich. Eat to Live is a great example and one of many.
