These days people are actually giving more thought and consideration into weight loss and being healthier. The problem here is everyone wants results the quickest way possible, even if it means several fad diets also known as quick fix diets.

You see, there are actually some quick weight loss methods out there that work. However, the majority of people looking to lose weight through this form have no idea what these methods actually are. They get excited by the promises made by the company and jump on the wagon with enormous hope.

Many people feel like there are not enough hours in a day to fit in time for a safer healthier method of weight loss which would normally take longer (but more permanent and healthier results). It is understandable because these quick fix diets normally require very little of your time; who wouldn't want to drop a dress size in 10 days?

Here are a few notes to think about when it comes to quick fix/ fad diets:

Fad diets have the ability to psychologically draw you in so you tend to put in a lot of hope and effort. This powerful drive and motivation along with excitement is good because you actually work and believe in the results. In the beginning you would see results and believe it is working (unfortunately the wrong type of results).

Quick fix fad dieting really does not require a lot of time. You are led to believe that if you simply restrict the foods you eat as the diet calls for, you will get the results they promise be it 10 days, 30 days etc.

With most fad diets you are not required to go to the gym and work out. Most times it is as a result of little or no food required during the diet thereby making the body too weak. The claims they make are enormous and unsupported in many ways, and this is the snare that gets most people. Everyone is willing to take a chance that involves no tedious work.

When you use a fad diet or choose to lose weight any other way than with a healthy diet and exercise, you are losing the wrong type of weight: water and muscle mass. This means that you are not losing fat at all and the potential to gain all this weight back is more than likely due to overall decreased metabolic effects. The question you should always ask yourself is: what happens after the plan is over and done?

Eating little or no food and neglecting your body of calories, carbohydrates and fat slows down your metabolism. Your body needs the correct types of these nutrients to function properly. When your metabolism slows down you are not only going to discover a lull in the amount of weight you lose, you will also find out that the capacity to gain it all back and then some is also increased.

Some of these fad diets actually cause you to lose weight but because of the likelihood of gaining weight right after you find yourself in what is known as a yo-yo diet system .This can be dangerous for your health as well as your psychological emotions. It can be discouraging to find yourself in this cycle and even prevent you from trying to lose weight again, since you are likely to gain more than what you started with.

The only way to really lose weight and keep it off is by changing your lifestyle. Begin eating healthier and exercising regularly so it is part of your life, not a short term diet plan. However starting off with diet system to get you into the groove to living healthier is not a bad idea but your goal should not be a short term system. If it took you 5 years to put on the weight, why do you think you can lose it all in 5 weeks? A diet system that uses starvation technique can only do you more harm than good in the future.
Learn more about your body; what works for X may not work for you. Some people are lucky. It still doesn't make it good or advisable.

Fitting into that dress now is not more important than what your health will be saying or what you would look like a few months down the lane.

The healthier safer way may take a longer time but it is guaranteed to produce permanent results.
