Diet for Rapid Weight Loss

By: Jake Hyten
Many people are under the false impression that eating a diet in low fat foods will lead to losing weight. This is not true and can be seen in the fact that low fat diets have been around forever yet you still see the obesity problem growing. Low fat diets do not lead to a long term solution of losing weight. One example of this is Sugar. There are 0 fat calories in sugar and if you were to eat sugar for breakfast you would in essence be eating zero fat calories!

Using a low calorie diet will help either. One of the worst things you can do in fact is utilize a low calorie diet. Low calorie diets may work for a few days but after the initial weight loss you'll hit a plateau. The reason for this is your body's natural fat burning engines slows down and this is when you hit the plateau. The amount of daily calories are not the deciding factor in your weight loss. It is the "Type" of calorie you consume. Calories come from three sources; fat, carbs and protein. It is this that is important.

Low Carb diets have been all the rage the last few years especially as an easy weight loss for teens program. The problem with these diets is they are very strict and very hard to follow for the average person. It is difficult to remain on a low CARB diet for any period of time because your body is robbed of precious energy. Just to give you an idea of how restrictive these diets are, the Atkins diet a very popular program allows just 20 "net carbs" per day for the first 2 weeks. An apple has more than 20 carbs!

Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers are programs many people turn to. Although These can and do work for many people they usually are very costly and weight loss is spread out over sometimes a very long period of time. Obviously this is advantageous for them because they make more money this way. There are rapid weight loss tips that will help you lose weight much faster especially with summer weight loss right around the corner.

For a diet to be effective it must be easy to follow, fit in with social behavior such as eating out and eating on the run and not provide ONLY short term results only to be gained back when OFF the diet.
