When it comes to losing weight, one of two elements that you usually have to have is dieting. The other element that抯 important is exercise. But how do you figure out the best way to do both and get the best results? There are some diets out there that allow you to lose weight without emphasizing the exercise portion. Some of the more successful diets do emphasize the importance of pairing with exercise. Dieting can be a very difficult undertaking when considering how many different formats are available. It抯 hard to sort through diets to find which ones are healthy and which ones are just gimmicks. A typical rule of thumb is if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Diets that promise unrealistic results in a short amount of time are sure to lead to your wallet being the only thing that抯 thinner. Experts suggest a steady weight loss at the rate of one to two pounds per week. Of course those numbers might vary the first couple of weeks that you are on a diet, but losing more weight than that for an extended time can be unhealthy.

The key to losing weight and keeping it off is making changes that you can live with throughout your life. Learning the right portion sizes and getting the right amount of exercise has to be a change that you adopt in your life rather than just doing it while trying to lose weight. One of the popular diets gaining popularity lately is the South Beach Diet.

Phase two is the long-term part of the plan. Phase two is also great for those that have 10 pounds or less to lose and don抰 have problems with cravings. Phase two is designed for gradual weight loss which leads to long term success.
