The Dukan diet
The Lemon detox diet
The Ketogenic diet
The Zone diet
The Paleo diet
The Baby food diet
The Cabbage soup diet.
The Pritikin diet
The Reverse Diet
The list goes on and on! Can you see a trend here? Many of you may even say you tried some, and some will say they tried them all. Yet here you are many years later, still searching, still looking for that elusive diet that will give you all you wish for while doing what you want!
It’s interesting how so many people gravitate towards these new diets so eagerly like shoppers outside the store on Black Friday, just frantic to get in. The more hype people give these diets the more traction they get. Then in some miraculous turn of events, the diet, whether good or bad, goes mainstream. Now everyone is talking about it.
It hits social media platforms, where reviews come in left right and center. Many of you, the general public, who are always seeking a new, better, faster, quicker, easier way to accomplish are all too eager to take this new information and fan the flame.
What do YOU really know about it aside from what you read and what you heard?
There is a saying,
“Believe none of what you hear, and half of what you see’’
This quote is saying that you shouldn't believe what people say just because they say it, and half of what you see because what you see is not always the truth. And if you understand this, then why continue to jump from one diet camp to the next, year after year with usually the same results?
Does the diets effectiveness rely on the amount of publicity it gets or is it based on the success that it truly brings forth? Taking 2 panadols for most people will rid them of their headache. This is successful. Following most of these diets leave few people with the success they were looking for!
There are some very important questions that you as a consumer need to ask yourself before you put yourself up and set yourself up once again to a program that leaves you falling short.
I will discuss in further articles the top diets on the market today and why they just not be what they’re all cracked up to be.
In the meantime I will leave you with a few tips on how to spot a “Fad Diet” And if you spot one, be responsible and turn your back and walk away!
A fad diet is a popular diet that usually promises weight loss. A fad diet often sounds “too good to be true” and does not follow healthy eating guidelines that support good health.
Here are some Fad diet red flags:
Promises weight loss of more than 1 kg per week.
Does not provide support for long-term weight loss success.
Restricts you to less than 1200 calories a day.
Does no differentiate between men and woman needs
Is rigid and does not fit into your lifestyle or state of health.
Cuts out major food categories (like gluten or carbohydrates) and stops you from enjoying your favourite foods.
Forces you to buy the company’s foods or supplements rather than show you how to make better choices from a grocery store.
Uses “counsellors” who are actually salespeople. (Weight management counsellors should not make a commission from anything you buy)
Gives you nutrition advice that is based on testimonials rather than scientific evidence.
Promotes unproven ways to lose weight such as starch blockers, fat burners and colonic cleanses.
Does not encourage physical activity.
Is derived from a Multilevel marketing machine
Mentions the words weight loss when talking about the diet. (Weight loss is less important to lose over FAT)
