Where Diets Go Wrong

By Chris Baker

When we decide to lose weight the first thing we do is eat less food, right? We may miss meals or eat small amounts in the hope that our body will burn off the fat on it's own. In actual fact eating less makes it more difficult to lose weight.

When researchers compare overweight and thin people they find that they both eat roughly the same number of calories. What makes overweight people different is the amount of fat they consume. Thin people eat less fat and more complex carbohydrates.

It is important to remember that losing weight is not something you can do overnight. A carefully planned weight loss program requires common sense and certain guidelines. Unfortunately there is a lot of bad information around and lots of desperate people are easily dued and ripped off.

Everyday we open magazines and newspapers with advertisements touting some new product, pill or patch that will take excess weight off quickly. There are too many people looking for that "magic" cure. Millions of us are trying to lose weight spending billions every year on diet programmes and weight loss products. Often you can lose some weight but over the coming years you put it back on, and more besides!

A survery was carried out recently to try and determine if any commercial diet program could provide long term success and surprisingly, not a single program could do so.

A common myth is that people get heavy by eating too many calories. Calories are a consideration, it's true, but overall they are not the cause of obesity. We actually take in fewer cleries each day than we did at the beginning of the century. Therefore, if caleries alone are the reason we become overweight, we should all be thin. Collectively we are heavier than ever. Partly because we are more sedentary now, but equally important is the fact that the fat content of our diet has changed dramatically.

People who diet without exercise often get fatter with time. Although the weight may initially drop while dieting, such weight loss mainly consists of water and muscle. When the weight returns it comes back as fat. Therefore to avoid getting fatter over time we need to increase the metabolism by exercising regularly. Select an exercise routine that you are confortable with and remember that walking is one of the best and easiest exercises for strengthening your bones, controlling your weight and toning your muscles.

If you like what you have read I have written a book which talks about obesity, what causes it, how we can cure it and more importantly how we can maintain that weight loss over time. You can buy this book by clicking the link below and it will be downloaded right to you. The cost is just "9.95.


About The Author
Chris Baker

I am a 39 (soon to be 40) year old male living in the UK. For years I have been "slightly" over weight as I am sure we all think. One day I was in the gym and got on one of those machines that gives you your "ideal" weight and I was shocked. I was actually 40lbs over weight. I looked at various ways of losing it and in the end came up with my own solution. It worked, so I wrote a book to help others.

I hope you enjoy it.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
