Why dieting does not work?
There are several problems with diet failures:
- Eating less Calories but failing to have proper nutrition.
You need not only to reduce your caloric intake you need to have a varied nutrition as well or you will just hurt your body.
In fact eating well is the only way to have a successful diet.
- Slimming down too fast. This slows your metabolism resulting in the famous “yo-yo effect”, i.e. gaining weight much faster then before. once you lost it.
Be patient, lose weight steadily. Do not lose more than 2 kg/month.
- Lack of perseverance. Losing weight will not happen overnight. You must keep at it.
- Lack of exercise. Now exercise alone will not make you lose weight (unless you go exercise a LOT), you need to diet too., but at the same time you need exercise to build more muscle, keep your metabolism at a good rate, etc…
Why fad diets do not work?
Also forget fad diets. Keto, Atkins, whatever. Throw that shit in the garbage it will only hurt you in the long run.
