The "best diet plans in 2014" reveal themselves to often be total wastes of cash.
In a related report from The Inquisitr, a recent finding suggested gluten problems might no be as real as you think.
Similarly, an argument for the profit motive at play in all this is simply taking a look around at how many kinds of different diets there really are, and how many ways there are to profit from those "diets." From Atkins to Paleo to Vegan to Gluten Free, there is always a never ending source of advice on how to get fit. A top ten list compiled by Fox reveals the variety of ways to lose cash to lose weight:
1. The Fast Diet by Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer
2. Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
3. What Are You Hungry For? by Deepak Chopra, M.D.
4. Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr
5. The Emotional Eater's Repair Manual by Julie M. Simon
6. Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo
7. French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano
8. Gluten Free Every Day by Robert M. Landolphi
9. Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman & Kim Barnouin
10. Substitute Yourself Skinny by Susan Irby
The list reveals just how desperate Americans are to lose weight and be healthier. Is it simply another way to cash in on a perpetual New Year's trend? Is continually deciding to lose weight "like for real this time, guys," just because it's a new calendar year, the wrong way to look at things? The slew of newly published diet books suggests it is. If any of the previous year's plans had been successful, there wouldn't be the "best diet plans in 2014" splattered all over the web.
It's been proven over and over again that radical diets rarely, if never, work out as those attempting to stick to them are unable to do so and simply revert back to their old ways. Sometimes the simplest changes are the most profound. Which begs the question: To what lengths are we willing to go to avoid the simple fact that most Americans simply need to eat right and get more exercise?
So what is your best diet plan for 2014?
