I am sure you have done the rounds on Dieting and at this stage could probably write your own email or even book on the topic…
You may notice similar ideas in a lot of them but to be honest they can really vary from one extreme to the other
Some are Low carb, some are high carb
Some low Fat, some are low Fat etc
Some only allow you to eat at certain times of the day
and on the really extreme, totally mental, end of the scale
some have you just consuming shakes and pills!
You may have found varying degrees of “success” depending on what your goal was and what your idea of success is…
But they all revolve around 1 single principle
And that is that you are in a
You need to be eating less than you expend, ideally just a little less
So if your body needs 2000 cals a day and your constantly eating 1900 calories then you will lose weight slowly over time
You may be thinking
“Well that sounds deadly, I’ll just eat 500 cals a day and weight will fall off me”
Which is exactly what these “detox” diets and other such nonsense try to get you to believe
Sorry, doesn’t work like!
And while you may lose weight doing that you will soon find it’s not sustainable at all for your lifestyle
And obviously if you are eating 2100 or above you will then gain weight over time
Even if it is all healthy foods
You can still put on weight by eating loads of “Healthy” foods! (Click here for Healthy Foods Versus Results Foods)
This is due to a few factors,
mainly that no one has an idea what a “Healthy” food is as it is plastered across so many products these days.
Always remember go back to the simple principle of
“If man made it, don’t eat it!”
is always a decent guideline.
And the closer a food is to it’s natural state the better it will be!
Do this with 80/ 90% of your food choices and you won’t be-far off having the Health you want.
What you really want to do is train like a bad ass and eat enough Protein to at least get you on the right track (Click here to find out why Healthy Eating = Zero Results)
Do that consistently for 12 weeks, yes 12 whole weeks, and then you can start studying things more.
The last thing you want to do is over analyse things from the get go
So next time you are tempted by the new magical diet remember that they are just putting you in a calories deficit
This is why your energy levels are horrendously low and you are probably experiencing things such as light head or dizzy spells and beingirritable etc
And not only is that a barrel of laughs they will also charge you good money to drink some disgusting shake
Life’s far to short for that….
