The “New” Diet Program That, Well….Doesn’t Really Work. Again.

diet-2-go-3With the plethora of different methods available claiming to be able to help you lose weight, its no wonder that people are generally confused as to which is the best method for them. It’s also no wonder that so many people throw away so much money on so called revolutionary programs only to find that they don’t lose any weight at all.

It’s not surprising that the general population is completely confused as to what they should do when it comes to trying to lose weight. One just has to turn on the television especially late at night, to be confronted with a tanned toned beautiful model telling you that if you just buy this great weight loss gadget/gizmo/machine or wonderful exercise video or so-called scientific breakthrough diet pills or new weight loss program, then in just 4 weeks or 1 week or 2 days or whatever the claim is, you’ll be as trim and taut and looking just like the model.

And there are new diet programs coming out every other day – whether its the zone diet, low carb diet, high carb diet, high protein diet, complex carb diet, vegetable only diet, or whatever – its no wonder that the average person is completely confused as to exactly what to eat and what to do in order to lose weight and stay trim.

Here are some facts that may help you if you are trying to figure out what is the best way to lose weight and thus which weight loss program to choose.

1. Low calorie diets will actually work against you because eating low calorie foods only will actually slow down your body’s fat burning engine and thus prevent you from losing weight. What happens is that your body detects that you are consuming less calories and it will adjust your metabolism as a result by burning less calories.

2. The problem with low carb diets is that, whilst in theory they may work, in reality these don’t work as if you don’t eat enough carbs, you will not have the energy to do anything and many people end up sluggish and depressed about it all and end up binge eating thus working completely against your fat burning program.

3. Weight loss programs offered by Weight Watchers & Jenny Craig do work but they normally take quite a long time as you need to progress through a monthly program that can take anywhere from 6 months or more. These programs also consist of you having to purchase special meals and dietary supplements especially at the beginning of the program. These programs can be quite expensive.

4. While many of the diet programs out in the market today will actually help you prevent putting on more weight, they do little if anything, to help you burn off weight you already have. Unless you already have a trim taut body and all you want to do is stop yourself from putting on weight, then most of these diets and exercise gizmo’s won’t work.

So what does work, what is it that you need to know to understand what can help you? Well at the most basic and fundamental level, the reason why most people are overweight is because they eat wrong foods, an overabundance of calories, too much sugar and white flour, and they’re also eating too heavily at night.

It’s a myth that you get fat because you are not doing the right exercise. Exercising helps you stay fit, but you don’t get fat because you are not exercising, you get fat because of the food you eat. The food you eat combined with WHEN you eat certain foods has the power to determine whether you are fat or thin.

Common sense, don’t you think? Actually, many people don’t–or choose to ignore the consequences which is why this country abounds with overweight people.
