Don’t Get Fooled by Fad Diets

Successfully Change Your Eating Routine Instead

Brian Roberts Your Central Mass Fat Loss Coach Here…

We are inundated with diet books, weight loss programs, and magazines touting the latest Hollywood diets. Not to mention that Google searches on ‘diet for weight loss’ return over 300 million results! This is why fad diets can seem like an attractive option for the majority of people who do not educate themselves on healthy eating regimes.

The scientific definition of a fad diet is: “Any of a number of weight-reduction diets that either eliminate one or more of the essential food groups, or recommend consumption of one type of food in excess at the expense of other foods. Fad diets rarely follow sound nutritional principles for weight loss, which focus on ingesting fewer calories and/or consuming more energy through exercise; fad diets are generally not endorsed by the medical profession.”

This is the link to one article we found that gives an idea about some fad diets out there and another link to a fad diet timeline.

Despite best intentions, most people have an extraordinarily hard time dropping those extra 5, 10, or 20 pounds – and even more trouble keeping pounds off. It’s not because we aren’t hard-working, smart, or have self-control. Keeping weight off is one thing that’s perpetually difficult. Weight loss and fat loss comes down to basic biology. Your body, programmed by evolution to survive famines, doesn’t like to be given less food. When you diet, it assumes there’s a famine and hangs on to every fat cell it can. The more you diet, the more resistant your body becomes to losing weight. So instead of going for that quick weight loss, you’re more likely to succeed by making small diet and exercise changes that will produce more lasting effects. The good news here it that you don’t need to spend a lot of money, join a fancy gym, avoid your favorite foods, have special meals delivered or buy another diet book.

Here at Central Mass Fat Loss, we don’t want you to get fooled by those excellent marketing and branding tools they use to attract interest. Instead, we teach you about portion sizes and healthy eating routines as discussed in a previous blog post: Healthy Eating and Portion Sizes and we give you that 1-1 attention for your individualized program to ensure that you are successful. We make sure that we’re assessing what nutrients YOUR body needs and what minerals will assist YOU in burning fat.

If you ever have any questions or need any advice, don’t hesitate to touch base with us.

Get in contact with us here to set up a consultation with us.

You will be amazed at what we bring to the table!
