Diets Don't Work

Copyright © 2008 Al Short

Many Americans view a healthy lifestyle as something difficult to attain--and something that's not much fun. Traditional diets have taught us that to lose weight, we must count calories, keep track of everything we eat, and deprive ourselves by limiting the amount--and kinds--of foods we eat. Diets tell us exactly what and how much food to eat, regardless of our preferences and individual relationships with hunger and satiety. Dieting can help us lose weight (fat, muscle, and water) in the short term but is so unnatural and so unrealistic that it can never become a lifestyle that we can live with, let alone enjoy!

While very few diets teach healthy low-fat shopping, cooking, and dining-out strategies, many offer unrealistic recommendations and encourage health-threatening restrictions. Even more important, diets don't teach us the safest, most effective ways to exercise; they don't teach us how to deal with our cravings and our desires, or how to attend to our feelings of hunger and fullness. Eventually, we become tired of the complexity, the hunger, the lack of flavor, the lack of flexibility, the lack of energy, and the feeling of deprivation. We quit our diets and gain back the weight we've lost; sometimes we gain even more!

Each time we go on another diet of deprivation, the weight becomes more difficult to lose, and we become even more frustrated and discouraged. Then we eat more and exercise less, causing ourselves more frustration, discouragement, depression. Soon we are in a vicious cycle. We begin to ask ourselves, "Why bother?" We begin to blame ourselves for having no will power when what we really need is clear, scientifically-based information that will help us develop a healthier lifestyle we can live with for the rest of our lives.

Deliberate restriction of food intake in order to lose weight or to prevent weight gain, known as dieting, is the path that millions of people all over the world are taking in order to reach a desired body weight or appearance. Preoccupation with body shape, size, and weight creates an unhealthy lifestyle of emotional and physical deprivation. Diets take control away from us.

Many of us who diet get caught in a "yo-yo" cycle that begins with low self-acceptance and results in structured eating and living because we lack trust in our body and are unwilling to listen and adhere to our body's signals of hunger and fullness. On diets, we distrust and ignore internal signs of appetite, hunger, and our need to be physically and psychologically satisfied. Instead, we depend on diet plans, measured portions, and a prescribed frequency for eating.

As a result, many of us have lost the ability to eat in response to our physical needs; we experience feelings of deprivation, then binge, and finally terminate our "health" program. This in turn leads to guilt, defeat, weight gain, low self-esteem, and then we're back to the beginning of the yo-yo diet cycle. Rather than making us feel better about ourselves, diets set us up for failure and erode our self-esteem.

The attitudes and practices acquired through years of dieting are likely to result in a body weight and size obsession, low self-esteem, poor nutrition and excessive or inadequate exercise. Weight loss from following a rigid diet is usually temporary. Most diets are too drastic to maintain; they are unrealistic and unpleasant; they are physically and emotionally stressful. And most of us just resume our old eating and activity patterns. Diets control us; we are not in control. People who try to live by diet lists and rules learn little or nothing about proper nutrition and how to enjoy their meals, physical activity, and a healthy lifestyle. No one can realistically live in the diet mode for the rest of their life, depriving themselves of the true pleasures of healthy eating and activity.

We Don't Fail Diets; They Fail Us!

Decades of research have shown that diets, both self-initiated and professionally-led, are ineffective at producing long-term health and weight loss (or weight control). When your diet fails to keep the weight off, you may say to yourself, "If only I didn't love food so much . . . If I could just exercise more often . . . If I just had more will power." The problem is not personal weakness or lack of will power. Only 5 percent of people who go on diets are successful. Please understand that we are not failing diets; diets are failing us.

The reason 95 percent of all traditional diets fail is simple. When you go on a low-calorie diet, your body thinks you are starving; it actually becomes more efficient at storing fat by slowing down your metabolism. When you stop this unrealistic eating plan, your metabolism is still slow and inefficient that you gain the weight back even faster, even though you may still be eating less than you were before you went on the diet.

In addition, low-calorie diets cause you to lose both muscle and fat in equal amounts. However, when you eventually gain back the weight, it is all fat and not muscle, causing your metabolism to slow down even more. Now you have extra weight, a less healthy body composition, and a less attractive physique.

Diets require you to sacrifice by being hungry; they don't allow you to enjoy the foods you love. This does not teach you habits which you can maintain after the diet is over. Most diet programs force you to lower your caloric intake to dangerously low levels. The common theory is that if you eat fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight. But when you eat fewer calories than your body needs to maintain its life-sustaining activities, you're actually losing muscle in addition to fat. Your body breaks down its own muscles to provide the needed energy for survival.

Traditional diets which use calorie restriction to produce weight loss are no longer appropriate. Most weight-loss programs measure success solely in terms of the number of pounds lost per weight loss attempt. Diets don't take into account the quality of the process used to achieve that weight loss or the very small likelihood of sustained weight loss. For long-term good health, you need to move away from low-calorie diets and focus on enjoyable physical activity and good nutrition. Exercising regularly and eating lean-supporting calories, protein and carbohydrates, and reducing fat-supporting calories will not only help you look and feel better, it will also significantly reduce your risk of disease.

America spends billions of dollars on different ways to fix people. If we focused more on prevention and on improving our day-to-day behaviors, we could cut health care costs in half. Contrary to popular belief, leading a healthy lifestyle doesn't have to be difficult; it doesn't have to painful or time-consuming. Making gradual, simple changes in your diet and physical activity will make great improvements in your health and well-being, and they can drastically reduce your risk of disease.

If your weight management program is to be a success, everything you eat and every exercise you do must be a pleasurable experience. If you're not enjoying yourself, it is unlikely that you'll continue your program. It's that simple. These small, gradual changes are not painful or overwhelming but rather the core of an exciting lifestyle that you will look forward to.

Take the frustration, guilt, and deprivation out of weight management, and allow yourself to adopt gradual, realistic changes into your life that will make healthy eating and physical activity a permanent pleasure. You will soon discover what your body is capable of and begin to look, act, and feel your very best. Good luck and enjoy all the wonderful benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.

You may think that this is the opposite way of thinking, but you can actually double your number of meals per day and yet achieve successful weight loss.

Yes, you can consume an equal amount of food per day and lose fat. The key is to make the portions smaller and divide that same quantity of food into more meals. Typically you might be eating three meals per day. That is the normal regime for diet conscious people. What you must do is double you number of meals to six.

Your mind is designed to eat a given amount of food and burn that number of calories in a time frame that is heavily biased by previous activity. You must not shrug off this fact. Consider the fact that you are having so much difficulty in reducing the quantity of food you consume.

So, how can I achieve weight loss by eating more meals?

I am sure you have said more times than you can count "I don't need this, I'm just eating it to eat." That is a reponse to the powerful signals from your brain telling you "You always give me this amount of food and I want it now." Now you know that you are not starving and you know that you have eaten adequately to sustain your body needs for the day.

You still find it necessary to eat more food despite that inner knowledge. Why do you suppose that happens? Doesn't the solution seem easy? Why not just resist eating? Well it's not that simple. The brain has great power and is difficult to change the program.

If the brain has such strong control over our body, why not work with it instead of against it? For the moment we will not even consider trying to change our brain programming and by asking it to accept lower quantities of food.

Let's work with it and give it that amount of food but provide it in more frequent intervals. So by simply doing that, what have we accomplished? We still have not reduced our calorie intake and the body will still have the same raw materials going into the stockroom.

Do you remember the power of the brain? It is accustomed to burning a given number of calories per meal. It remembers that data equally well as it remembers how much food you are providing the body on a daily basis.

The brain is going to try to command our metabolic system to burn the same number of calories at each meal. The key point in weight loss planning, is the fact that you won't be providing that quantity of calories per meal. To satisfy the brain demand that you burn a given number of calories, the metabolic system will seek out and find available calories stored as body fat.

It will then burn off calories that have been previously stored as fat. We all find it easy to accept the fact that the brain is so strong that it stimulates the urge to eat. With that acceptance of the brain's power, we must in turn accept the fact that it also has the power to dictate how many calories are burned in a given period.

So now there must be a valid conclusion here. We can begin losing weight consistently and never even approach the issue of counting calories.

Now what happens if we tailor that calorie intake a little bit? If we work at it and manage to introduce a bit of calorie reduction along the way, the benefits will be even more dramatic.

Holiday New Years Weight Loss Solution

Copyright © 2008 Al Short

What is it about the New Year that makes people leap without thinking making resolutions that have no hope of success. Every person has deep ingrained habits that make changes especially significant changes hard to make. Though every person has things they want to change, so how do we make New Year resolutions work.

It is important to look at your past attempts to achieve weight loss with New Year resolutions. So, many people start with such a high that once that high drops they quit just as fast as they start.

For those that are serious this year, the following are a list of what it takes to be successful with your New Year's resolutions. Be prepared you are going to have to change habits that keep you from success.

Just Start

Most people make the predictions of what they are going to do though actually taking the first step to an online personal trainer or the gym doesn't always happen. Most often negative self talk tells you will fail or can't do it and you never get off the ground. How do we know you have negative thoughts about weight that is because if you didn't you would be fit. What is vital is to acknowledge that you have negative thoughts on weight and set your goals in the positive about what you are going to achieve than what you are going to lose.

Line of Support

Success is achieved with support. The biggest failure that people make is their ego gets in the way and they believe they have to do it themselves. No person does anything successful by themselves. Whether in money, work, or fitness the better your team the more successful you are.

A proper team is made up of professional support and peer support. It is paramount that you have friends and family that will support you in your efforts. See how often we look to friends and family that talk bad about us and keep us from success. Find those that are going to believe just as you that you are going to be successful. With so much misinformation out their about weight loss hiring a professional is vital to success. An online personal trainer makes a great option that is convenient and affordable.

Complete Program

This New Year start with a complete program. Most people take on only one aspect of weight loss which is why they are always missing gaps and don't achieve their weight loss. A complete program has a balanced nutrition plan, strength, cardio, and flexibility program, and a natural supplementation plan. Each is vital to overcoming obstacles and making the changes necessary for success. What each person needs to do is a bigger topic then this articles and another reason why to hire a professional who can handle all these aspects. Find a Community

Beyond just support from friends and family, joining groups and engaging with other people in your community is one of the best ways to stay consistent. Walks, 5k races, hiking clubs, or more are easy things to join and meet new people who are working on getting fit with you. Getting some of your physical activity out of just the gym helps tremendously with your mental capacity to keep going and enjoy the journey of success.
