Picking the Right Diet

The best diet is one that is going to help you to lose weight. Weight loss is not about trying everything hoping you may get lucky with some weight loss product. Successful weight loss is all about using common sense.

If you want to lose weight you can be assured that there will be hundreds of companies clambering to get your business. Everyone says that their product is the best, so how do you choose?

Some diets will work for some people and not for others. There are strict diets and not so strict diets. Some diets tell you that you can drop lots of weight in just a few weeks. Some weight loss methods have celebrity endorsements which sometimes lead you to believe that you too can get that celebrity figure. Which one do you choose and how do you know which one will work for you?

The answer to that question is so simple that many people will often ignore it, because it is too simple. The answer as to which diet you should choose is…none of them! Yes you did read that right. You have to ask yourself if a diet can get you the results you are after, why do we need hundreds of them?

The fact is that very few diets actually work, and even the ones that do work only work on a temporary basis. The weight loss industry is huge and has a turnover of billions of dollars a year. It is also an industry that is often unregulated. Sellers of weight loss products often get away with anything just by using clever words like “may, could, can” etc. Most diets actually imply weight loss and not guarantee it. If you don’t believe me, read the small print on any weight loss product. If you are promised that weight loss blog will be achieved, no matter what, be very cautious. If tomorrow I uncovered a method of losing weight that turned out to be the best method available anywhere, I still would not be able to guarantee my product 100%. How could I? I won’t know if you will use my product on a daily basis, I won’t know if you are prepared to change your lifestyle, I won’t know how motivated or disciplined you are. So how can I guarantee you will achieve something when I don’t know what you are capable of?

Remember that the role of a weight loss company is to make money, just like any other company. If there is an area where money can be made then you can guarantee that it will be exploited. There is no group of people that are more exploited then people who want to lose weight. How many people out there have spent time, money, and effort on trying to lose weight and not succeeded? Yet how many of those people have received their money back? What other industry could get away with selling you a product that doesn’t work and not give you your money back? I can’t think of many but that is exactly what the bulk of the weight loss industry does.

You want to lose weight? Stop focusing on weight loss products or the latest diet. It is your lifestyle that will determine whether you lose weight or not, not some dubious diet or pill. Weight loss is about eating sensibly and exercise and that’s all there is to it.

There is no miracle cure, no weight loss secret, no revolutionary method; it’s all about common sense.

If you eat food high in sugar and fat content, if you snack on chocolates and cookies late at night, if you regularly miss breakfast, if you eat large meals loaded with calories, do you think you are going down the road to weight loss? Simple common sense will tell you that you aren’t.

If you spend your time slouched on a couch, if you spend hours in front of the TV, if you don’t walk any worthwhile distance, if you always use a lift instead of stairs, would you think this will increase your chances of weight loss?

Use your common sense, you already know what will help you lose weight, give yourself the credit for being an intelligent human being that knows what needs to be done without any interference from the thousands of so called weight loss experts out there. If you need to learn more about food and exercise, use reliable sources on- line which are free. Throwing money at a problem is rarely a long term answer to anything. The one sure route to weight loss is changing your habits, do this instead of looking for the best diet and you will succeed.
