Guidelines for Choosing The Best & Safest Diet Programs

Before you start a weight loss program, see your doctor for advice about your overall health risks and the weight loss options best for you. In the mid-1990s, the Federal Trade Commission got together with major weight loss companies to create the Voluntary Guidelines for Providers of Weight Loss Products or Services from the Partnership for Healthy Weight Management. This was a landmark accomplishment, since at that time, the market was rife with lots of hype and unsubstantiated claims, and plain unethical practices. It has improved a lot since then.

Participating programs will answer important questions about how their product of service works, how much it costs, how well it works and any risks involved in following the program. If they don't, hang up the phone or walk out of the center, and save your time and money.

Do the top weight loss programs follow these guidelines and answer your questions?

What's involved in following your program? Ask for details about what foods and how many calories you'll eat each day, and whether the program includes regular physical activity. A weight loss program that claims you can lose weight and keep it off without changing the foods you eat or increasing your physical activity is selling a fantasy. People usually do best when they reduce their usual caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day. This allows for good nutrition and helps you lose a safe 1-2 pounds per week. For diets under 1500 cal., check with your doctor.

What are the staff qualifications? Is the staff made up of a variety of qualified counselors and health professionals such as nutritionists, registered dietitians (RDs), doctors, nurses, psychologists, and exercise physiologists? You need to be evaluated by a physician if you have any health problems, are currently taking any medicine, or plan on taking any medicine, or plan to lose more than 15 to 20 pounds. If your weight control plan uses a very low-calorie diet (a special liquid formula that replaces all food for 1 to 4 months), an exam and follow up visits by a doctor are also needed. Ask about their training, experience and credentials. Find out if you'll receive individual counseling or group support, and how often. Not all diet programs provide individual attention or quality counseling. Compare the top 60 diet programs now to find out if you have emotional support needs that require personal counseling.

Is training available on how to deal with times when you may feel stressed and slip back to old habits? The program should provide long-term strategies to deal with weight problems you may have in the future. These strategies might include things like setting up a support system and establishing a physical activity routine...
