Why Do So Many Diets End in Failure?
Did you know that the average diet results in 11 pounds of weight gain? This is a sad fact, but one that might come as no surprise if you are a frequent dieter. While you may start strong, a diet that demands you to restrict your intake of good foods is doomed to fail. Being hungry is not the solution, and depriving yourself will ultimately lead to failure.
The diet and weight loss industry has many people convinced that there is some bar, some shake or some pill that will miraculously help the weight come off. Or, that limiting calories and increasing activity will do the trick.
While exercise is good, and eating healthy portions is also good, going hungry isn't. Many packaged diet foods are filled with carbs, artificial ingredients and sugar. They are not whole foods and they do not give your body what it is craving most. Over time, you will find yourself tired and depleted, and you may end up overeating. Not only that, but you have lost muscle and gained more fat.
This is the unfortunate outcome of many fad diets or deprivation-based diets.
Metabolic Research Center knows that the body thrives on natural, healthy foods eaten in healthy portions. Education, nutrition and exercise are the keys to a diet that is sustainable. If every day is a struggle to maintain your current diet, it's simply not going to work.
What does work:
- Cutting unhealthy fats, sugar and carbs.
- Eating lots of colorful vegetables.
- Consuming lean, healthy proteins.
- Getting adequate exercise, water and rest.
When you are eating the right foods, you don't have to obsess over every calorie. For more information on healthy eating and saying goodbye to fad diets for good, contact Metabolic Research Center today.
