Still Dieting? Cut It Out! Here Is Why Diet Does Not Work

Plain and simple, they are a waste of time. What were the exact findings of the study? Well, for one, in men and women, people who participated in formal dieting programs were much more likely to gain back any weight lost, plus additional pounds on top of that. In a two-to-five year span, these poor people wasted money, time, and their hope on plans that did nothing but bring them down.

A more in-depth recounting of this fitness tragedy is available through the University of California-Los Angeles, but do not waste any more time on the research than you have to. It is well-known in the fitness community that the worst thing you can do if you truly want to lose weight and get fit is to diet.

But does that not go against everything diets claim they can do for the people that take part in them? You bet it does. The keys to reaching your fitness goals can be found nowhere on a weight-loss plan that encourages cheap tricks and fast results. The keys to reaching your fitness goals are simple, but not easy. In order to make it to where you want to be, it is time to commit yourself to eating right, exercising, and keeping these things in mind the next time your head is turned by a diet that promises the world, but ultimately leaves you in worse shape than you were before:

It is not your life! One of the biggest reasons most diets fail is because they force you to be someone other than you. How can you keep up with the special dishes required of you when you hate to cook? Is that TV dinner really going to cut it, or will it only cause more hunger that you take care of before bed? By forcing you into different lifestyle choices, diets set you up for failure.

No 90-day program is going to fix your lifetime problems. You lost control throughout a lifetime of eating the wrong things and falling behind on your exercise…not three months' worth. Diets do not fix the behaviors that got you where you never wanted to be. In order to have lasting change, you must fix the behaviors, too, and there is not a diet around that prepares you for this.

Diets measure in weight, not fat. On a diet you have to get rid of as much fat as you possibly can, as quickly as you possibly can. This is backwards from true fitness. You do not necessarily want to lose weight; you definitely want to lose fat. Keep weight loss at .5 to 2.0 pounds per week, and avoid falling into the trap of quick loss and greater gains.

What you should take from this information is not disappointment in the fact that there is no easy-to-follow, phony, baloney diet system that is going to solve all your problems. Instead you should take heart that you are aware of the drawbacks, so that you do not pursue such frustrating paths that will only leave you unhealthier, and with less self-esteem than you had before.

If you want a system that works, do not invest your time and money in dieting, but invest it on what is already inside you that makes success possible.
