Many people try a wide range and variety of quick weight loss programs and diets. However, these are not healthy diets and, in numerous cases, the weight always returns. Losing more than a pound or two a week is not healthy for the body. The body needs time to adjust to new habits, and fad diets place your body and health at risk. The following tips help with debunking fad diets and making healthier choices:

Thin People Are Healthier – Actually, people who are underweight often have eating disorders and other health problems. What many people forget is that muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue. You can be perfectly healthy with well-built muscle tissue and weigh more than someone who has very little defined muscle tissue.

Eating Only One Meal a Day Helps Lose Weight – Skipping meals shocks the body, so any food you do consume is quickly stored away as fat tissue. The best way to lose weight is to eat between 4 and 5 small meals throughout the day. This gives your body time to digest the food and use the calories as energy, rather than storing it as fat.

You Don’t Have to Exercise if You Cut Calories –Cutting calories is similar to skipping meals. When you do eat, your body is so starved, it stores most of what you consume as fat tissue. A much better approach is to include some type of exercise in your day. Exercise could be walking up and down a flight of stairs for 10 to 15 minutes, swimming, cleaning your house, or any other sort of activity where you are burning calories.

Only Eat One Type of Food – Cutting out carbohydrates, or eating strictly proteins prevents the body from obtaining a well-balanced diet. Instead, eat lean cuts of meat or legumes, whole grains, and fresh vegetables in the proper portions, several times a day, as part of a healthy diet.

Cut Out Oils, Fats, and Sugars to Lose Weight Quickly – There are good and bad oils and fats – nuts and seeds and avocadoes are good ones. Fried foods: not so good. The body also requires sugar to burn calories, but it is better to eat a date or raisins than a candy bar.

Cutting corners to lose weight is not healthy for the body. The best approach is to eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly. Protect your muscles from being overextended and lower risks for injury by applying SpiderTech kinesiology tape to your body before you start any type of activity.
