ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to some weight loss plans. Diet plans like Sugar Busters recommend consuming carbohydrates with low glycemic-index values. It is still debatable whether they actually promote weight loss. But they tend to be higher in fiber and are usually less processed than their counterparts, making them a more nutritious choice. Cabbage Soup Diet prescribes eating low-calorie cabbage soup in lieu of a meal. But the soup is not balanced enough to be a meal.
