business news in context, analysis with attitude

The BBC reports that an analysis by the Nutrition Journal of four popular diets - Slim Fast, Atkins, WeightWatchers and the Eat Yourself Slim diet – concludes that they all essentially work by reducing calorie intake while providing necessary nutrients.

However, with one exception – WeightWatchers – the diets generally result in people eating fewer fruits and vegetables, which isn’t necessarily good for the people who are on the diets.

KC's View:
Still skeptical here. Diets are tactical, changes in lifestyle are strategic.
