The composition of diets against obesity varies greatly. Individualization of the diet is a very important factor for long-term compliance and for obtaining a satisfactory result. Only diets which respect the principles of healthy nutrition are considered appropriate. The avoidance of weight regain after a successful diet program requires continuation of a diet relatively low in fat and an increase in physical activity.

Key words: Diet in obesity, Low carbohydrate diet, Low fat diet, Nutritional guidelines in obesity.
