Information to Help You Choose a Weight Loss Diet



What is the LEARN Diet?

LEARN, which stands for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, Relationships and Nutrition, is an overall lifestyle program that includes a weight management plan. In the frequently asked questions section of LEARN's web site an expert talks about the importance of monitoring calorie and fat intake with no more than 30 percent of calories coming from fat. The diet plan promotes monitoring food intake and exercise.

How does the LEARN work?

LEARN seeks to help people understand their habits. The idea is that once a person has better knowledge about why they do what they do, it's easier to incorporate healthier habits into their lifestyle. LEARN, while pointing out that individuals can do the program on their own, encourages individuals to seek out the help of Certified LifeStyle Counselor.

The program calls for weekly lessons, an orientation and 12 others. A guide for counting calories and forms for tracking your progress are also included.

What does research say?

LEARN cites several studies that have been done examining their program with a note that they only list research that includes a substantial amount of the program. The program is very broad, dealing with issues ranging from eating habits to self awareness. A 2007 study, not included on the site, compared LEARN to other popular diets, finding women on the Atkins diet lost some what more weight than women assigned to LEARN, Zone or Ornish.
