Does the diet plan emphasize foods from the basic four food groups? Does the meal plan include a wide variety of foods? Does the diet plan recommend at least a calorie intake of 1,200 food calories per day? Does the plan recommend an increase in complex carbohydrate consumption and a reduction in fat intake? Does the plan encourage physical activity as part of a healthier lifestyle?
These are a few of the questions you should consider. Make sure the diet plan includes these points before following the weight loss regimen. Beware of claims that do not follow these guidelines; they could be harmful to your health, and would not be appropriate for safe, weight loss.
