Question Description

Diet Program Evaluation Activity

For this activity you will analyze three different popular diet programs. Do a web search to find out more about each of the diets. The Diet Program Evaluation Chart (DOCX) contains the questions you will answer. Print the chart and, in the open spaces of the chart, fill in notes on what you find. Your notes should be based on the principles of weight loss, balanced diet, and physical activity that you have learned about. After researching and note taking, type answers to numbers one to ten (from the chart) in your discussion entry. Be sure to number your answers. Finally, write a five to six sentence statement about which diet program you would choose if you were seeking to reduce your body weight and why.
