A diet is what you call how you eat - it's not something you resort to. Weight loss diets are supposed to help people lose weight; weight gaining diets do the opposite. People choose diets based on their lifestyle and what they want to accomplish.

The American Heart Association doesn't recommend high-protein diets for weight loss. Some of these diets restrict healthful foods that provide essential nutrients and don't provide the variety of foods needed to adequately meet nutritional needs. People who stay on these diets very long may not get enough vitamins and minerals and face other potential health risks.

There are many different diets out there that guarantee losing a ton of weight, but the best diets are ones that include exercise as well. Another important thing to keep in mind is what nutrients you are taking in from the foods you are eating. Dieting should not just be about losing weight, but about eating healthier in general.
