The idea is not to derail dieters' best efforts and even endanger their health.

"Atkins - thank goodness, they're bankrupt," Davis said. "We don't endorse any of the fad diets." It is the general view as the weight loss may be evident at first but it leaves lot of problems for the body.

In RD's opinion," The Atkins Diet works by cutting out carbohydrates, but many dieters do not realize that they are losing large quantities of water rather than fat. The diet, which has long been controversial among health professionals, has been linked to health problems ranging from kidney damage to heart disease and osteoporosis."

"Suppose you don't eat breakfast," said RD Davis. "You eat lunch at 12, and supper was at 6 . . . Your body is going to want to hold on to those calories as tightly as possible, because Lord knows when you are going to eat again."

"It's a 60/40 or even 50/50 split, with part of me saying I should do it, but the other part of me saying I don't want it," said Kathleen Kelly, a clinical psychologist. "I try to tune into the part of a person that says no, and find out why that part is resisting."

For many such people, she said, eating is a means of coping with stress or pain. "Eating works, especially if one eats high-calorie, high-carbohydrate, high-fat foods," she said. "We have the ability to numb ourselves out."

In view of many nutritionists," At least 30 minutes or walking, or any movement, matters. The guidelines recommend 90 minutes of sustained activity . . . but on the conservative side, I'd be happy if they do 30 or 40 minutes four times a week, and gradually upgrade it."

So lots of advices by nutrition experts help in countering the problem of weight gain and loosing the excess baggage.
