Thanks Jim

This is a small easily digestible review of a review of recent literature. Nice graphics. Seems reasonable. Not promoting any one diet.

Cheers

Good article. Going to have to pay attention to the kind of grains I eat and lean towards the WG's.

To me, it's all in the first two bullets in upper left of the last graphic. Adherence and Negative energy balance (consuming fewer calories than you burn). Kind of odd to put "high-quality foods" up there since the diet plans being compared disagree on what that means; we could argue about it for days. We have a number of times right here in this forum. Anyway, it doesn't matter how big that "negative energy balance" is if you don't stick to the diet and it it doesn't matter how well you stick to it if you eat more than you burn.

RTG, Ya, as I see it, that's the formula?!  Does human food intake somehow escape the law of input/output?

I have neither the attention span nor the discipline to 'diet'.  I am back to about my Army weight, ~175. I would like to credit it to eating peanut butter basically every morning ...a big glob on English muffin halves and cutting the cookies to <1 per day. (no booze, soda or liquid calories).  Lotsa salt and tea. (..losing mass and height with age too.)

I would never intentionally go hungry.  But, it must work for some people ...like those guys in Iran who parade down the street covered in blood. Ok?!

Some people swear they manage to beat the equation; eating way more than they burn. then there is the "oh yeah, but I also fast 2 days a week" or whatever. It is possible to digest fewer than labels say; you actually get about 15% fewer calories from crunchy peanut butter versus smooth because crunchy doesn't all break down on the ride through for example. But that's only some very specific foods, not some process you can make happen with anything. Certain foods take more energy to digest, but you're down under the 5% range in what that gets you.

The first bullet - adherence - is really hard on "gimmick" diets that aren't really what you would eat given the choice.
