Why Quick Fix Diets Not Effective for Permanent Weight Loss

It is not surprising that many people desperate to lose weight do not seem to get lasting results using quick fix diets. You will find many sites on the internet claiming significant weight loss in just a few days. That type of weight loss is always temporary. It is often water which will be put straight back on as soon as your body rehydrates, which it must do if you are not going to suffer severe health problems and dehydration.

Other quick fix diets are often crash diets with exaggerated claims of success, they tend to be fashionable for a period of time and usually make a lot of money for marketers. In most cases these are good nutrition plans which will help you lose weight, but which you could probably have gotten for free from your doctor. In the worst cases they will prove so difficult to follow that you will soon give up.101 steps image

  • Quick weight lose diets provide temporary solutions and do not help you to make permanent changes to your eating habits. Lasting changes that are sustainable are the only way to remain at your target weight once you reach it. The quick fix diets encourage binge eating cycles of fast weight loss followed by equally fast weight gain and this is detrimental to your health and self-esteem.
  •  These fad diets do not give the benefits that you would get from a balanced diet.  They promise quick and easy weight loss are usually based on eating more of one food type and none of another and often suggest you take supplements but many supplements are not absorbed by the body unless they are taken along with the foods that the diet has banned and this may result in nutritional deficiencies.
  •  Fad diets are often restrictive and uninteresting.  After the initial excitement, you will not enjoy your meals. Cravings for some foods may occur and breaking the diet is likely to occur.
  •  Often the diet will recommend high fat foods and low carbs which if taken long term, could result in heart disease. The promoters may tell you that the diet is only intended to be followed for a short time. But you probably will not reach your goal weight in that time most likely reverting to your old eating habits.
  •  Many fad diets do not give you the variety of foods that your body needs and may not help you to incorporate enough servings of fruits and vegetables in your weight loss program.

Be aware that whatever the publicity materials may say, these diets will not help you in the long term. The best way to sustain weight loss is to eat a varied and healthy diet, avoid overeating, exercise regularly. Quick fix diets are not effective for permanent weight loss.
