Dealing With Yoyo Diets

By: Sandra Goldstein

Almost everyone who have ever attempted dieting have undergone one time or another through a yo-yo diet. This is the classic ideal for all those who do not like what their measuring tapes are telling them about their thighs and waists. Everyone wants a diet and some diet pills help them shed a significant number of pounds quickly; in a week or two, if possible. Unfortunately, all those pounds you have been quick to discard are returning right back in a month or so. Many experience some liver used to speed up the weight-loss process.

Many Yo-Yo diets always sound like a fabulous idea because people never like to think that weight problems are long-term problems which should be managed as such. They are looking for the miracle cure, the three-day wonder that would fix everything in a couple of days. Unfortunately, long-term problems solved in three days have a way of refusing to stay solved. It's a sort of nudge from Mother Nature reminding us that we should not try and hurry things, especially when it's impossible to do so. It doesn't matter what the labels of dozens of pills say because weight loss is not a short term problem.

The best weight loss advice one could get comes from dietitians and physicians, but people tend to stay away from these professionals. Their answers offer no hope for a simple solution and their eating plans and diets seem to take forever. Nevertheless, these neglected experts know that the body has gained weight in time and will shed it in the same manner. Trying to force a new weight gain/loss rhythm is not healthy for the body and fast diets always end up causing damage to the internal organs and decreasing the muscle mass.

What a Yo-Yo diet can never give you is the guarantee that all the weight lost in one week won't return after a couple of glasses of soda and two or three burgers. A proper diet that takes at least four weeks to complete allows the body to get rid of the accumulated fat and not of water or muscle mass. Crash diets that cut off your intake of calories may seem to work for the moment, but your body is going to pay a heavy price as the internal organs are left without the required daily nourishment. The only way to lose weight for good is to avoid eating foods that are rich in fat and to exercise on a regular basis. Dieting without exercising is pointless because all the weight lost by eating less food will come right back in the following months. The sedentary lifestyle most of us lead is one of the causes behind the recent increase in the number of overweight people around the world. Cars, office jobs and foods rich in fat have brought us an unforeseen problem because the easy modern life has a price tag, just like everything else.

Many short term solutions tend to lead to long-term disasters. And what appeared like a sound idea yesterday might be proven a health hazard tomorrow. Your weight problem is nothing to be proud or happy about, there is no magic pill that is going to make "everything right" overnight. You must put together a sound eating plan, moderate-exercise on a regular basis and please make certain you're not putting any weight back on. Many recipes exist for dieting you can choose from and even prepare yourself. Usually, Dieting is always simpler than it sounds. It begins when you reach for the bag of snacks and recalling that a red apple would be healthier for both your waistline and inner self-esteem.
