The Postgraduate Medical Journal also focuses on other diets and how they can help with tackling obesity and warned people against crash dieting that can seriously affect the health. Many health experts and doctors criticized the weight reduction industry that focus on calorie restriction and not on good nutrition that can in a way help in fighting obesity and at the same time maintain proper health. The journal also mentioned that Mediterranean diet is a better alternative to reduce weight and to fight obesity because it includes fruits and vegetables, nuts and olive oil that works naturally to reduce heart attack risks and strokes and they are better than low fat diets.
