Recently, Americans have been bombarded with products and programs that promise weight loss. One diet that has swept the nation with rapid weight loss results is the low carbohydrate diet.

Sure, most would prefer the quick & easy ways, but the question still remains: Is the quick ways really the best ways for the end results? While comparing two of the more popular fad diets, (not to mention controversial), I will also be including some of my own knowledge from my personal experience with one of these diets. Although the HCG and the Cabbage Soup diets take different approaches to weight reduction, each employ extreme measures for dangerously rapid weight loss.
Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that fat metabolism can be reduced by as much as 73 percent after only two drinks of vodka and lemonade in a one-hour time period.

Many individuals are nutritionally depleted due to years of neglect of from lack of nutritional foods, which can be remedied by improving the quality and kind of foods that are consumed and a quality vitamin/mineral supplement. Because a lot of nutritional value in our food is lost, and life is filled with emotional stressors, if optimal health is an individual’s goal, a high quality supplement is no longer an option (Cheraskin, 1989 b).
