Some Tips on Fat Loss Diets

"Losing weight is not only helps to improve the way that you look, but also it is important to improving your health and quality of life. By reducing your body weight by 10% you will substantially reduce your chances of developing diabetes, heart disease, and even joint problems. For a woman that weighs 165 pounds a 10% weight reduction would only be about 16.5 pounds. This reduction will help you feel better about yourself, it will help you drop a dress size or two, and it will help you enjoy your life.

Why Most Diets Fail

Most fad diets fail because they create negative biological effects within your body. Starvation diets that reduce your daily caloric intake too much will actually cause you to hold onto fat and extra body mass by lowering your rate of metabolism and by triggering your body's starvation defense mechanisms. Fad diets that reduce your food choices to only one or two food groups are also unhealthy, and they will ultimately fail because they starve your body by not providing it with adequate amounts of nutrients, minerals, and fats that it needs to operate and function properly. As your body runs out of the stored elements it will trigger a craving that will encourage you to eat foods that have the nutrients that it needs. These craving, unfortunately, will kill you diet as once you start eating the restricted foods you won't be able to stop.

In addition to nutritional concerns that fad diets pose, unbalanced diets also impact the way that you feel, and your ability to function normally. With too few calories, and too few nutrients your moods will swing to the dark side, and people will not want to be around you. This could negatively impact your ability to function at work, to socialize with others, or to take part in your family's activities."
