Building a Diet Catalogue

Posted on

Diet Catalogue

Monologues are always boring and tiring. A bit of participation from my friends and blog followers would definitely spice up things. Well, how about building a database of diets? If each of us contributes the name of atleast one diet that we have heard, we could keep things rolling. Your inputs could be shared in the comments section of this post. Let us not debate about the popularity of the diet, its effectiveness or its futility. But let us focus on the authenticity of its mere presence; the fact that it exists and is followed in some corner of the world is just enough to add it in our database. Let us derive satisfaction in creating our own diet database and take pride in watching it grow over the course of time.

The idea is to initially collect names of diets, sort them alphabetically and later if possible link the name with a brief account about the diet.  The database could serve as a one stop reference for all diets …it could be something like a “Diet Catalogue” or a “Dietpedia”. Hope you all enjoy taking part in building the catalogue and thanks in advance to all the contributors. My bit to the database is “John Atkins Diet”.

    • Thanks for taking the time to write Lalitha. For now, I will select from the list you have sent.

      I am in a dilemma if I should add diet prefixed with disease names for then it would be a never ending list like Pallavi said…all disease names followed by diet.

      I would appreciate if you and the others share your opinions regarding which would be better… restricting to diets with specific names, those describing a feature of the diet like “low-fiber”, “low-potassium” etc., those with terminologies requiring explanation like “kosher”, “halal” etc., or include even those preceded by disease names.

  6. Just entered the 50th diet in the catalogue and that gives all its builders a reason to be happy…had 100 as target in mind…lets see how it goes… 50 is however a sizeable number and let me focus on giving the links now 🙂

  7. Most diets are only effective untill boredom sets in, then most drift back to their previous eating habits, with the obvious result, an alternative weight loss program that does not envolve dieting is the answer, check out

  8. Healthy eating is really necessary so that we can live longer. ,

    My very own blog site

  9. I guess I don’t know the technical name for it but I’ve been trying the “Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle” diet I found on and it seems to be working well!

  10. The cabbage soup diet is a radical weight loss diet designed around heavy consumption of a low-calorie cabbage soup over the time of seven days. It is generally considered a fad diet[citation needed], in that it is designed for short-term weight-loss and requires no long-term commitment.;

  11. While diet is essential to maintain good health and fitness, exercise shouldn’t be taken for granted. Diet and exercise always go hand in hand. So make sure to eat healthy and be active as well. Thanks for sharing!
