There are three major approaches when it comes to cooking for weight loss. The
popular low-carbohydrate diets represent one of them. But they do not work for everyone.
The other popular method is the low-fat way. That does not work for every one either. Then there
is the portion size reduction. Still some people will not respond well to this.
Concentrating on calorie intake, which generally uses the three methods at the same time seems to be the most efficient method of all. Most health institutions favor low-calorie recipes over unbalanced recipes.
