keto pork rinds
At the 12-week checkpoint, the group following the ketogenic diet achieved two times more weight
loss than the Weight Watchers group. More significantly, the keto group lost three times the amount of weight than the Weight Watchers group after 24 weeks and had substantial
improvements in metabolic health. Cholesterol and other lipids showed no changes of concern. To read more about the trial, click on the article here. Coming in at number 20 was the infamous Biggest Loser diet. It ranked . 8 points higher on “Easy to Follow” and 1. 6 points higher in the “Heart Healthy” categories. These rankings come, despite the research showing persistent metabolic adaptations after the Biggest Loser competition–six years later!  This study showed that the majority of the weight lost on the show was regained, yet their metabolisms were still suppressed/slowed. Further, while I agree that exercise is extremely important, on the Biggest Loser diet, it’s a “key part” of the success. So, in essence, this diet requires putting people on an unsustainable caloric
restriction protocol combined with exercise to induce fast weight loss that is likely to be regained long term
while also suppressing your appetite–and it really only works if you exercise enough to overcome your metabolism slowing down from the caloric restriction (aka Jillian Michaels screaming in your face).
