“Are all diet plans scams?”
This is a very common question at the gym where I work. Almost every day, a new horror story about a regime that promises huge promises but gives meager results is in the spotlight.
The weight loss and diet industry is legitimately deserved as an object of skepticism. There have been countless hyper-excited diet plans coming in the pipe. This is unfortunate because it is more difficult to find those who give results.
With the avalanche of conflicting advice and dieting, it can be easy to feel completely overwhelmed. But the good news is this …
There are diet programs that work really well.
The key is to filter them out of the trash and hype that has infiltrated our TVs, magazines and computers. In this guide to diet plans, I will show you what to look for in the diet plans that work, show you the features of diet plans that are scams or a reversal of hype, and also describe plans diet that, I know, have worked for clients in the past.
DIET PLANS — WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Promotion of healthy eating. Having a good diet is surprisingly easy – all you have to do is eliminate a lot of the processed foods from your diet, replace it with green leafy vegetables, complex carbohydrates and high-protein foods, and to begin.
Regular exercise. It is true that you can have a serious fat loss to your belt just by eating better. But if you are eager to get that fat (and I know you are!), Adding exercise does not give your fat any chance.
There are so many other reasons to adopt regular exercise in your life, but I will not go into this here. Diet plans that include regular exercises, such as interval training and strength training, are greatly appreciated by my readers.
Continuous support. Want to spot a dieting from the start? See if they offer support in the form of a community or even by email. Scammy marketers know that their products are void. Once they have received your money, they do not want to have anything to do with you anymore. Legitimate diets know that weight loss and your success are critical to their success – they are for the long term, so to speak – and will do whatever is necessary to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
DIET PLANS — WHAT TO RUN AWAY FROM
Promises to lose more than 5 pounds a week. Sorry to have to burst your bubble here, but for the most part, weight loss should occur at around 1-2 pounds a week. (I’m talking about fat pounds, not total weight.)
Great difference.) Many diet plans will indicate that they can make you lose up to 10 pounds a week. But what they probably say is that you will lose fat and water. ** At the end of the day, you should focus on reducing your body fat percentage. Fat loss should not be measured by weight. **
The HCG diet. Tell me how fun this diet is: eat 500 calories a day. Then receive a product called HCG injected weekly. Needles? No thanks. Oh, and did I mention that HCG is a hormone found in the urine of pregnant women? True story. This diet was materialized about 50 years ago by a British doctor. It fell into obscurity after 1976, when the FDA put the HCG diet to the test. It was not until 2007 that Kevin Trudeau was showered with a series of infomercials and a book. The FTC came and knocked him out of the ass. She ordered him to pay $ 37 million for falsely claiming that his book contained infomercials. According to him, the diet was safe, could be done at home and was easy to do. If anyone recommends this diet plan to you; run. Quick.
Fat loss pills. Acai Berry, Hoddia, Ephedrine and other exotic pills you’ve probably never heard of. You have probably heard about acai berries to this day. My inbox receives about a dozen spam, as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Berries are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, but they are marketed as a panacea for weight loss, which is very misleading.
In addition, hoodia is relatively new on the market. Some unpublished research (hello, I’m a red flag!) Have shown that this extract could help fight hunger, perhaps. Finally, I would like to talk about ephedra / ephedrine. I have seen many people use this stuff during my years at the gym. It can be effective in suppressing your appetite, but also causes high blood pressure, insomnia and serious heart problems. Since 2004, it is no longer allowed to be sold with food supplements.
Also keep in mind that these weight loss pills are not regulated in the same way as prescription pills as they are considered food products. Which means that there is no testing and that a scientific evaluation is made at least as much before the marketing of these products.
Toning Shoes. Commercials and print ads always feature a slim and fit girl with a tight ass. The promises are there too – burn a ton of extra calories and burn your bottom while walking! Research has shown the opposite, however.
Shoes are effective only in climbs, and the promise of being able to reduce fat on the buttocks is a moot point – it’s impossible to reduce stains.
The reality is: you do not need all that hyper-excited crap to lead a healthy life and lose all the fat you want! The science of fat loss is surprisingly fundamental and has not changed in years. A good combination of a good diet and regular exercise is all you need.
It’s as simple as that. People are overwhelmed by the type of exercise they should do – what types of foods should they eat (when), etc. For this, several guides can help you clarify your exercise and diet to burn this fat.
