Why most diets don’t work…
There are literally hundreds of different diets out there; all claiming to be the best, fastest and healthiest way to lose weight. If this is the case why hasn’t everybody who has tried a diet got a six pack?
In fact 99% of people who do try, don’t stick to it for more than a couple of months.
Does this mean you won’t lose weight going on one of these diets?
No. You probably will lose weight.
Does this mean you should go on one of these diets?
Well that depends.
If you want to lose a bit of weight for a holiday or an upcoming party then going on one of these diets may be for you.
Because they work in the short term.
But they DON’T work in the long term.
You can’t stick to them for more than a couple of months because they’re NOT SUSTAINABLE.
Do you think you can eat under 900 calories a day, or drink nothing but shakes or cabbage soup (yes, that’s a thing!), or fast for 2 days of the week, or eat nothing but fruit (yes that’s also a thing) or cut out fat for the rest of your life?
No, of course not. Eventually you will have to stop.
And what do you think happens when you do? Yup, you start eating exactly the way you did before.
Which means you put back on all the weight.
But not only this; half the weight you have lost is muscle. Which means you metabolism is now messed up. So you get even fatter than you were before you started dieting.
So what should you do?
Well there is a diet out there that is backed by SCIENCE.
Real scientists, doing real research.
The low carb diet.
As the name suggests this is where you cut down on carbs to a minimal level.
This diet is GREAT for a few reasons.
- As there are little carbs to use as energy (you body’s primary fuel source), you start burning fat off instead to use as fuel, and your body gets more efficient at burning fat. So you lose fat quickly!
- It’s one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. Decreasing the risk of loads of different diseases and health problems!
- It is sustainable. When you are at a healthy body fat % you can start reintroducing a moderate amount of healthy carbs into your diet.
- You don’t lose loads of calorie burning muscle like you do with other diets.
So next time you get the motivation to get into shape, a low carbs diet is the best way.
