Stop Dieting if you want to loose weight

“Most diet trials in the best journals fail even the most basic of quality control measures.”

That line in the heading of a recent New York Times article hit us like a lightning bolt. Before we go any further, generally speaking, a diet trial is a controlled test of different diets on humans.

Yes, we’ve told you many times about why it’s so difficult (impossible for many) to achieve healthy, sustained weight loss from weight loss diets. Yes, the best way to lose weight is to start a diet plan that balances your diet and ensures that your body gets proper nutrition to remain healthy while you lose weight. 

But when we read an article authored by two PhDs, who conducted a research study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, that tells us the following about diet trials, it gives us hope that maybe the message is finally be getting through:

“Few big companies stand to profit directly from dietary treatments for chronic diseases.” (so they’re not willing to spend money on proper research into weight-loss diets.)


What Does It All Mean for You Right Now? Until diet trial results become more reliable (and don’t hold your breath), the best thing you can do for your health and weight loss is to eat a balanced diet, like the Herbal One Diet Plan that we create especially for you.
