Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

An Introduction to The Women’s Health Diet

Women's Health Magazine Diet PlanIf you’re looking for a flexible, healthy and fun way to lose weight, then you may want to consider The Women’s Health Diet. Created by Stephen Perrine and Leah Flickinger, the editors of Women’s Health magazine, this weight loss program can be incorporated into almost any lifestyle.

Some diets claim promise to help you lose as much as a pound per day, but these programs tend to be extreme, unhealthy and unsustainable. The Women’s Health Diet can help you lose up to 15 pounds in six weeks, which is about the maximum for healthy weight loss.

To start, you will identify your body’s strengths and weaknesses. There are no strict rules to the diet program, and there are no types of foods that are completely eliminated. Instead, those following the plan will be encouraged to eat nutrition dense foods, healthy fats and plenty of fiber. These choices are made easy with a list of the 250 best foods for women.

The exercise portion of The Women’s Health Diet focuses on toning muscle through circuit training. You will also be encouraged to find physical activities that are fun.

I'm motivated by wanting to maintain the big weight loss I achieved a few years ago. I feel so much better and healthier!

My motivation to stay healthy is to ward off diabetes (runs heavily on both sides of the family) and to remain active and strong well into my senior years!

My motivation is to feel good. I don't want to sit on the couch and watch the world go by through TV reality shows. I want to be part of the action.

My grandchildren. I now have one and one on the way. I smoked for 22 years and I have been quit for a few years now, but unfortunately when I stopped, I started eating more and I gained over 50 lbs! Now I am obese and it is time to get this under control!
