If you are fed up of trying out your current weight loss program and have felt this way about the previous ones as well, then you are not the only one with this problem. Losing weight quickly is what everyone wants to experience. However, they fail to understand that this is only temporary in its results. Eventually you will regain most of your lost weight, and in some cases gain more weight than what you lost.
Most people find it hard to stick to a specific weight loss program either because they cannot cope with the intensity of it, or they become weak in their resolve and go back to unhealthy diets and lifestyle, or they do not have enough encouragement from the people around them to continue with the process. It is important to stick to the correct weight loss program in order to gain result from it. Changing the program frequently is not the solution to it.
However, it would be untrue to say that none of these programs work. Since most of us don't have enough time to invest in an extremely intense fitness regime, devising a convenient and prompt weight loss program seems to be reasonable. But you need to know the benefits, process and side effects of such programs before adopting one of them. A few programs might be good for you, one might be perfect, and others will add to your problem. Not all body types are the same. Therefore, each of them needs to be treated differently.
If anyone tries to convince you that the reason for your weight gain is due to a particular food item, or any specific reason, don't believe him or her immediately. Although this might be true, the chances of one issue being the sole reason for being overweight are quite slim.
Usually most of the fad diets make a person lose weight quickly initially. But most of this weight consists of water and muscle fat. Also, most individuals starve themselves to lose weight. This slows the metabolism of the body down and within a short period you stop losing weight since your body adapts to the lack of nutrition by slowing down the metabolic rate. This is bad for your health, since some physiological functions are dependent on regular nutrition. Hence, they cannot take place accurately due to lack of it.
The deal is to adapt a healthier lifestyle on the whole. Skipping meals or indulging in intense exercise will only exert your body in the wrong way. You need to realize that weight loss is not a miracle phenomenon. However, neither is there any short cut to it.
Popular diets and other fitness programs may make you lose weight initially, but since they do it by subjecting your body to unfair means, you tend to regain this weight very quickly. Hence, there is no long term optimization. Balance out your weight loss program and make sure that the one you are following suits your body type.
