"Diets that work"

"Diets that work"

People who need to lose weight are constantly seeking diets that work. It's not really difficult to find diets that work, but finding a diet a person can stick with is the problem.
The diet industry is huge. Including books, diet food programs, trainers and nutritionists, spas, and all the other parts of the health and diet industry a lot of money, over 46.8 billion dollars in 2005, is pulled in not from people becoming healthy or losing weight, but rather from people trying to become healthy or lose weight. Because the money comes from repeat business, the focus is surely on the ping-pong reality of un-healthy living followed by short stints of diets and health programs.

Here's a diet that works.
Drink only water, eat only a thousand calories every day, and combine it with 30 minutes of aerobic activity 5 times each week.
That diet will result in shedding weight. But there are two issues.
The first is that cravings are likely to foil the diet. Sooner or later, particularly after returning home from work outs, those 1000 calories won't be sufficient to satisfy.
First it's a potato chip or piece of cake, then it's an extra hot dog and the whole bag of snacks, and then the diet is kaput.
#2 the diet eventually ends. You soon go back to eating the identical old way. Next beach season, or next time to try on that dress or tuxedo, or next family trip, or simply the next time you glance at a looking glass on the way out of the gym it will be time to return to a diet to lose the unwanted pounds.

The best diet is one making a change to overall diet, permanently.
A lifestyle change to healthier eating habits and more exercise is the best way to lose weight and keep off the weight. Connie Guttersen created the Sonoma Diet which, as a base, focuses on ten power foods.
The power foods are almonds, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, grapes, olive oil, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes and whole grains, combined with the diet of the Sonoma country, which includes Asian, Latin American and Mediterranean foods and dishes.
The diet includes a wide variety of real, and enjoyable foods so it's easy to remain on it .

Want a diet that works? Move your mind from a short term diet to a long term style that's part of an overall healthy and active lifestyle.
That way you won't gain the pounds in the first place.
