With the start of a new year we all know that New Years Eve marks a new beginning for most, but how long does it last? Many Americans have made New Year's resolutions, these resolutions often involve diets and healthy eating. Researchers have found that an increasing number of restaurants have made themselves available to meet their consumers' needs by creating new dishes that are low in fat, calories and sugar . Businesses now proudly promote their food's healthy properties.
We have found that the word "healthy" is now part of menu descriptions, over 86 percent of restaurants now use this term. "Dieting consumers don't always view restaurants as a safe place to eat, either because they don't recognize diet-compatible options, or are too tempted to indulge themselves when eating out," says Technomic Executive Vice President Darren Tristano, he continues on to say "However, the number of healthful dishes offered at restaurants continues to grow, and operators are increasingly interested in touting healthy benefits on their menus." I feel that this is an attempt to gain more business from those eager dieters.
Here’s a few of the top 2011 diets and here is a link for more healthy tips (http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/5-diet-resolutions-new-year ).
No. 1: Jenny Craig Diet
No. 2: Slim-Fast Plan Diet
No. 3: Weight Watchers Diet
No. 4: Zone Diet
No. 5: Ornish Diet
No. 6: Atkins Diet
No. 7: NutriSystem Diet
These diets have been house hold names for a while, they have even been endorsed by celebrities in order to gain popularity. But the key is that they charge people for these plans. You can't just start these diets without their set guide. How does this help our obese nation?
