Fad Diets vs Balanced Diets

Plain and simple, almost any diet will yield results! Surprised to hear me say that? Well, it is true. Just ask yourself, “DID MY DIET STOP WORKING OR DID I STOP MY DIET?” Your success hinges more on YOU than what diet you choose.

Having said that however, not all diets are created equal. In fact, at times they are miles apart. Some diets are more difficult to follow than others and differ in their effectiveness. One thing is for sure, fad diets are temporary and not practical for long-term. Some diets are so restrictive, it is only a matter of time before you fall back into your old habits.

What classifies as a fad diet? When does cutting back become too restrictive? Here are two previous blog posts that will help you answer those questions. “Balance” and “The perfect balance!

The ugly truth is that very few programs address the real problems at hand. We all love to get our ears tickled and buy into miracle weight loss scams. None of which address the real issues that got us into this mess: food addictions, lifestyle, sedentary habits, etc.

When you opt for the balanced diet, there is no drastic change to the foods you can or cannot eat, MINUS THE JUNK that is! You can still have most of the foods you are accustomed to, but in a healthier form.

Do yourself a favor; confront your issues head on! Stop searching for the next break through diet, and have the courage to make some major lifestyle changes! Will it be easy? Absolutely not! Will it work? Absolutely! Otherwise, it is only a matter of time before you find yourself staring at a fatter version of yourself in the mirror, with a slower metabolism to boot.
