Why Traditional Diets Don’t Work Long Term

Are you struggling to lose weight and just can’t seem to figure out why? Do you go to the gym, work out, diet and avoid sweets and still don’t see the results you want? If so, you are like millions of others who are trying to lose weight and still can’t seem to get rid of that excess fat. Could it be your workout? Or maybe you aren’t going to the gym often enough? But you are going every day and following an exercise routine that was designed just for you by a personal trainer. For many, it isn’t either of those. In fact, it is their choice of diets that is causing them to not lose any weight or lose weight and then quickly gain it back again.

Diets Don’t Work

Diets don’t often work as they trick your body into thinking it is starving and it will go into a survival mode which makes it that much more difficult to lose weight and keep it off. Dieting and weight loss is much more than calories in versus calories out. Dieting requires us to restrict our bodies of the food it needs to survive and can even make us sick. The only effective way to lose weight and keep it off, is to change your lifestyle.

A diet will help you lose some weight, but once you stop dieting, your body will gain most of the weight back as it prepares itself for another bout of “starvation mode”. Dieting creates specific changes in your body that make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight. These changes can include:

Slower metabolism- as your metabolism begins to slow down, it will take much longer for your body to burn off calories. Less calories burned means less weight lost.

You will still feel hungry- dieting will leave you feeling hungry and this could cause your hormones to change. When this happens, your body begins to store the fat that you eat even after you have stopped dieting making it difficult to maintain any weight loss results.

Dieting makes food more tempting- many of us have food on our minds most of the day. We need it to live after all and our mind is working to ensure that we don’t forget to eat. When we diet, it makes food, any food, seem much more appetising and we are then tempted to eat it.

Change Your Lifestyle, Not Your Diet
