10 Reasons Fad Diets Do Not

10 Reasons Why Fad Diets Never Work

 Everyone wants the fastest, most effortless method for achieving results in life. However, it is this pursuit that causes many people to waste their resources, time and energy. The people that create these fad diets and “get rich quick overnight”schemes know that people want this and this is why they will psychologically market their product to match your overly utopian desire. Then they take your resources and let you figure out that it takes work and knowledge to get results that will stay. So here is a list of 10 reasons why fad diets never work:

  1. Your body burns less overall calories.
  2. They all say “lose weight” but not “Lose Fat.”
  3. Your body becomes less efficient at burning fat.
  4. They don’t tell you to exercise.
  5. They taste bad
  6. Most of the weight that you lose is water.
  7. They try to tell you to give up eating all fats.
  8. You feel bad while dieting.
  9. In the end you will gain it all back.
  10. You learn nothing after you quit the diet and/or products.

Whenever you are in doubt, simply ask yourself: “Is this how nature intended for me to lose weight?” Once you start exercising and dieting correctly, you will never want to let that go. The benefits far exceed some “quick fix.” Don’t bandage your problems, solve them.
