Losing weight with FAD Diets?

You should avoid thinking that going on a certain diet would offer a temporary fix for losing weight and keeping that weight off. Whether we know it or not, everybody is following some form of a diet. However, majority are following a diet that is “unhealthy”, that eventually leads to high blood sugar, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity.

By not putting attention on what food you eat and its frequency would cause you to gain weight. Even though you aren’t struggling with weight gain now, bad eating habits is still a dangerous habit to get into. It will not only cause you to gain weight by also cause long term health problems, like constipation, high cholesterol, fatty liver, high blood pressure and many more.

There are many FAD diets that are being promoted over the internet, and you may have felt great when you’ve shed off a few pounds when you tried it.  Then it is good for you, success like that is good to celebrate at. However, if you stop following that diet and go back to your old eating habits, then you’ll surely find yourself again gaining those extra pounds.

You may be unaware of it, but you actually putting your metabolism on a rollercoaster ride every time you crash diet. You’re putting your body in a “famine or starvation” mode because of the lowered calorie intake that goes with crash diet. So instead of speeding up your metabolism and giving your body more energy, your body will start to conserve whatever energy it has by storing that energy in fat cells.  That is the reason why it is costs more calories to lose rather than gain weight. Your body will not easily give up its needed energy.

So you need to stop thinking that those FAD diets will solve your weight problems if you want to succeed. A healthy eating habit that will help promote a healthy metabolism is what you need for a long term, and not causing your body to shock. A very important factor also is your lifestyle, you need to carefully examine your lifestyle and learn how you can add fat burning exercises into your daily routine so you won’t just lose weight fast, but keep it for the rest of your life.
