The Simple Diet better than Jenny Craig or Atkins Diet

Posted on December 12, 2011. Filed under: nutrition, obesity, weight | Tags: , , , , |

The Simple Diet promotes more weight loss and better health outcomes than other nutrition approaches to weight management that are reported in the medical literature. The Simple Diet promotes twice as much weight loss as the Jenny Craig program and three times as much weight loss as the Atkins Diet over a six-month period. Research reports document the following weight losses in six months: counseling by a dietitian, 2 pounds (1); Ornish Diet, 5 pounds (2); Slim Fast, 7 pounds (3); Weight Watchers, 9 pounds (1); Atkins Diet, 11 pounds (2); Jenny Craig, 16 pounds (4); and The Simple Diet, 32 pounds (5-7) .
