Donna asks…

What is the atkins diet?

Why would a low carb diet cause headaches fatigue and carbohydrates cravings?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Atkins diet is a low carbohydrate diet program which restricts the consumption of carbohydrates for weight loss purposes. The Atkins diet is a weight loss diet designed by Dr. Robert Atkins in the year 1972. In 1972, Dr. Atkins recommended a low carb diet to treat obesity. The foods high in carbohydrates are replaced by foods high in proteins and fats. The calories from the carbohydrates are compensated by the calories from the fats and proteins. The Atkins diet is not only used to treat obesity, but also to treat epilepsy or diabetes.

Side effects of the Atkins diet include bad breath, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, weakness and others.

The Atkins diet and its side effects are discussed in detail in

Mark asks…

Which diet is better for quick weightlloss?

low carb diet, vegeterian diet, or a low calorie, low carb, and a low fat diet?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Low carb diets work (while you’re on them), but they’re hard on your kidneys and liver.

Low fat and low calorie diets are EXTREMELY hard to follow, because you’re constantly feeling hungry. Besides, many of the the “low-fat” foods have higher sugar levels and/or chemicals, which cause you to eat more… And thus prevent you from losing much weight.

Besides, you NEED healthy fats for your brain and organs to work properly. Most fat in our “modern” diets is the unhealthy type.

And, with virtually all diets, most people gain back all their pounds and more, once they stop dieting. Few people are disciplined enough to follow their “diet” for the rest of their lives.

Daniel asks…

the sacred heart diet.?

has anyone been on the sacred heart diet? if you have please give me your thoughts and results of the diet.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’ve tried the Cabbage Soup Diet, which is supposedly similar. Lost weight, but it made me so hungry I could’ve bitten someone’s hand off if they’d gotten between me and my tomato (the tomato and beef day). You’ll only lose water, if you lose anything at all. Most who’ve followed CSD can’t stay on it for more than a couple days due to the intense hunger. Here’s what I found out about Sacred Heart (it’s not from Sacred Heart or any valid healthcare source):

“The Sacred Heart Diet is a fad diet that has been circulating for many years. The diet was supposedly thought to come from the cardiology department at Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital where it was used for overweight heart patients. However, like most of these diets – this is an urban myth.

The Sacred Heart Diet has been called a number of different names (such as the Spokane Heart Diet, the Cleveland Clinic Diet, Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital Diet and the Miami Heart Institute Diet). The diet also bears a striking resemblance to the cabbage soup diet.

Background of the Diet
The Sacred Heart diet is a soup-based diet, and claims that you will lose 10-17 pounds in the first week. This may be true, but most of the weight will tend to be water – and will be gained right back very soon after the diet.

This diet is very clearly an unsustainable fad diet, but is not as nutritionally unsound as similar diets. Most of these diets claim some magical fat-burning science is involved, or that there is something special about the combination of foods. This is simply untrue – it is nothing more complex than a reduction in calories!

This diet is not recommended!!”

Carol asks…

Am i going to have the right results with the cabbage diet recipe,without using the lipton soup mix?

i want to start the cabbage soup diet,but i cannot find the lipton soup mix here in uk where i live,so i am thinking to skip it!

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Lipton soup mix is not critical to the cabbage soup diet. It just provides some flavoring. Leaving it out won’t change the results unless you add slabs of cheese and a ton of noodles to make up for the missing soup mix.

Initially, you are going to experience excess gas, but after about three days, this should start to subside. If it doesn’t, you can always add Beano to your first spoonful whenever you have the soup to take care of the unpleasant side effects.

Good luck with your diet!

18in4 diet plan?

Can someone please kindly assist and mail me the diet plan. I can’t afford to buy the book. If someone has it please kindly mail me. I know it is not a balanced diet but it is better than water fasting coz looking at what the scale says thats where I am heading, yes water fasting. I just urgently need a quickie diet to jumpstart.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I don’t know about the 18 in 4 diet plan, but:

Try the Souper Soup Diet (a version of the Cabbage Soup Diet) at You can sign up to receive the diet for free & they will also email you diet tips Tu-F each week. This diet really works…I have used it several times; especially when I wanted to lose fast. In fact, I’m on it now and have lost 12 lbs since last Monday.


Try the Fiber One Diet:
1 bowl of Fiber One cereal 3 x day (breakfast, lunch & dinner) with skim milk (I use fat free Lactaid)
1 tv dinner (400 calories or less) for dinner
Drink 64 ozs water (drink plenty water or the fiber will constipate you)
Exercise 30 minutes each day
Note: This diet keeps you very regular (bms)


John asks…

Help!! What Should i do!? Diet Plan?

well i need some advice for a diet Plan. im 15 years old 5’11 tall (Pretty Tall) and i weigh 212 lbs.
well my plan is to lose 30-40 pounds by next august (1 year +) and i was wondering any tips or suggestion rite now my plan is a strict water diet and salad diet no more soda candy etc.Will that help me? and by tha way i got asthma Since i was a babyy so running may be difficult for me at times…
So can ab crunches help lose belly fat and can dieting help lose fat in the legs arms face etc??

weight loss cardiff answers:

You have a reasonable plan so far as time and weight loss are concerned but the diet is not so good. If you can do so,consult with your family health care provider about diet. If not..well, you need protein in your diet and a certain amount of carbohydrates as well as a little healthy fat because you do not only want to get thinner, but to stay healthy while you do it.

Baked beans, peanuts ( a small handful of them a day), turkey, fish and chicken are all good sources of protein that should fit into your diet. The fish can be canned, frozen or fresh as you prefer but fresh is best and you should not eat more than one small tin of tuna..or the same weight fresh, per week.

Dry fry food in a good non-stick frying pan, or if you need a little oil then make sure it is a little..half a teaspoon in the bottom of the pan. No sausages or fast foods,soda or candy..if you like these things then it is easier to give them up than to try to limit yourself to tiny quantities of them as treats. One of my favourite substitutes for chinese, when other people in the house are ordering out, is a dish of white or basmatti rice with prawns or shrimps and a good helping of thawed frozen peas..warm the prawns and peas up gently, they are already cooked, and then stir them into the rice with a splash of soy sauce to is delicious, easy and fat free…besides having good amounts of carbs, fibre and protein in it.

You will find that the longer you go without eating sweet food, the less you enjoy the taste of sugary things.

Mushrooms and beansprouts, kiwi fruit and pomegranates are all exceptionally good for you, peas are close and raw cabbage and a coleslaw with low caloried dressing perhaps..are good for asthmatics..which, by the way, citrus fruits are not.

There is no way of dieting for one particular area of the body but the Tony Little “Gazelle” can work wanders on your stomach, hips and thighs in just fifteen minutes a day..which you work up to..and with very little strain or effort. You can often get one second hand for a good price on Ebay or elsewhere and if you have no problems with your back or is the gentlest way I know of for taking off the inches even if you do not go at it like a maniac. You can use it at a gentle swinging pace and still benefit so there is no need to get breathless.

Swimming is the best overall exercise anyone can do, so if you can and do swim then try to spend a routine amount of time in the water a routine number of times a week. Again, no need to break any allowing yourself more than a year to reach your target weight you have given yourself the best chance of doing so and of keeping the weight off which most dieters do not achieve because they have not actually changed their daily routines over the long term but only modified them radically for a short time.

So..a little more variety than just salads..and if you get hungry between meals, have a cup of soup, and if you get desperate for some candy then make it sugar free gum or mints. Take care and the best of luck.

P.s. Ab crunches..great for building muscle, but once you have converted fat into muscle it is much harder to lose.

Robert asks…

diet help detox or simple diet plan?

iv bin trying to lose weight for months and going the gym four times a week,and i just keep falling off the waggon, i just need a diet that is really simple and easy to follow with easy meals that will make it easy to stick to please help!!!! i really want to lose weight been trying to shift 1-2 stone for nearly 3 years please explain in full a diet plan to follow.
i am 5 foot and weigh 136lbs which is 9stone 10lbs
i hate it

weight loss cardiff answers:

I don’t have a diet plan, just a few suggestions that might help along the way.

To divide it into two can I separate [A] “good diet” and [B] “eating what is not good”. One of these must overcome the other, but not as a battle. You clearly want [A] and rid of [B]. And it is very hard, isn’t it?

I don’t have a weight problem, but found out I had hypoglycemia, so no surprise a complete chocolate head [or cream, biscuits, etc]. So, [B] was winning at that point. Now, I’m happy to say, [A] is winning.

Cook your own foods. As in “from scratch”. Not absoluteley everything, but make your own bread, batch-cook chillis or curries – crammed with different veggies, low meat content – and portion & freeze them, etc. Make it darn tasty too, so you can’t wait to eat it! These things aren’t fattening if they’re not made fattening. This is a way of REALLY taking control of your own diet.

Buy a rice cooker and some good rice. Rice in your diet is a good thing, gets rid of toxins too. Once you find a rice you love shop around for 5kg or 10kg bags and save loads of money.

Best wishes!
