Best Of Diets In Review: A Look Back at the Last 7 Years of Posts

Time flies when you’re typing furiously! (And having fun!) Can you believe it’s been 7 years since DietsInReview.com first launched? In that span of time we’ve posted over 9,000 blog entries, thousands of diet reviews, and hundreds of recipes. We’ve attended tapings of shows like The Biggest Loser, worked out with top trainers, kept an eye on trends like calorie restriction, and gotten completely hooked on foods that we can clearly remember not knowing how to pronounce. (Quinn-O-Ah? Quinn-wah? Keen-wah?)

Breaking News: DIR Staff Takes a Day Off for Christmas

Thanks for stopping by today, but we’re not here. Once a year our very talented, very hard working team takes a single day off to celebrate Christmas with their families. That day is upon us!

We often joke with concerned family and friends that the Internet doesn’t ever shut down, and neither do we.

We hope you, as well, find some time to stop and enjoy your family and friends during this harried and joyful time of year.

Indulge a little. Enjoy a lot.

Merry Christmas from all of us at DietsInReview!

17 Healthy Carbohydrates You Should be Eating

The 17 Day Diet seems to be all the rage these days. Created by Dr. Mike Moreno, the diet was recently featured on The Doctors and the Dr. Phil Show. To go along with this “17” craze, we’re featuring a list of 17 healthy carbs that you should be eating for overall health.  With so many healthy options, you’ll never fall into a food rut again!

1. Oatmeal. It may seem boring, but oatmeal is such a delicious and filling breakfast choice. With lots of fiber, five grams of protein, 27 grams of carbs, three grams of fat and only 150 calories, you get a lot of nutritional bang for your bite!

2. Barley. Also high in fiber, barley is great in soups, as a whole-grain side or even as a healthy rice replacement in risotto!
