See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A psychiatrist has shed some light on common diet myths. He claims that: initial weight loss achieved on any diet is not solely due to water loss; skipping meals tends to result in protein breakdown rather than fat breakdown; the food pyramid is not necessarily the best guideline for healthy eating; eating a low fat diet is not the best weight loss method - our bodies are designed to live off plant foods, fruit, nuts, protein and fat - carbohydrates should not be a prominent part of the diet; counting calories is not crucial for healthy eating and weight loss. He claims that people should concentrate on proportions of various nutrients and should aim for a fat burning metabolism.
