Let’s look at what we really mean when we use the word ‘diet’ for most of us it’s something we do short term to achieve the goal of losing weight. which is why for most people diets don’t work. If you eat in a way that makes you gain weight, then diet, then go back to eating the way you did when you first gained weight. the only logical conclusion is, that you will regain some, all or more than the weight you lost. Here’s another strange thing to consider, if, as we’re constaly told by the ‘diet industry’ that we have to restrict our calories, our fat, our carbs or any combination then why don’t we all explode? Sure some people can weigh 600lbs but they stay at that weight, they don’t keep going, they may die and do if they do nothing to reduce the burden their bodies carry but they don’t explode. their skin doesn’t stop stretching, their body doesn’t stop creating more cells to store the fat in. Their bodies do give out but it’s the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas or other organ or organs that give out and cause death.

If there is any confusion related to the purchase of the best testosterone booster, then you can do proper research. You can do little research at the platform to purchase the correct boosters. There is no gaining in the weight for long period with continuous consumption  of the boosters. 

So if weight gain is just a matter of more calories in than out why don’t people just explode? Doesn’t it mean that there may be something else at work? Like insulin response, acidosis or something as yet to be discovered genetically. The main stream medical fraternity is now paying much more attention to modifying insulin respones, not just for diabetics but for everyone. Problems always seems to arise when someone, be it a ‘celebrity’ or ‘expert’ comes out with yet another diet plan, one that will ‘cure all’. Often ‘with no effort’ so thousands flock to this new plan, making a lot of money for it’s authors and suppliers along the way. Many succeed in the first weeks and post comments on line that encourage more people to try it (and make more money for the authors etc.) and yet, when the next ‘new diet’ comes along many will migate to that. Why? If the first one was so great and such a ‘cure all’ why did they need to move to the second?

Could it be do you think that in fact the first diet didn’t work long term? Is it too restricted? To fiddly? Too boring? What? Maybe, it’s because healthy eating is not the same as dieting and, maybe what’s healthy for some is not for others. Maybe because we’re all individuals and as such our bodies process food, fluid, stress and happiness in unique and different ways, that in turn means that our bodies react differently to different foods and ways of eating.

To help you make up your mind, below are 3 links to some research into different diets and the long term results. For me a successful eating plan is one I can enjoy every day, that doesn’t require me to obsess about what I can and can’t eat (because I’ve got good alternatives to the bad food) and one that enhances my health while balancing my weight. Oh yes, and it’s not going to be proven a total success until I’m dead and either slim or fat. If I’m slim, it worked if I’m fat it didn’t, simple as that.

Calorie Counting Diet Plan – The Research

As I read this I thought Yes! that makes sense, we are all different and it explains why some people on a calorie restricted diet (which in my opinion is one where not only do you count your calories but have a level above which you must not go, regardless of whether that’s 1500, 1800 or 2000) lose weight and keep it off and others don’t.

Fat or Calorie Restriction – The Research

A different study concluded that it make no statistical difference if you restrict fat intake instead of calorie to the end result, which is some people will succeed and the majority won’t. The majority who don’t will be villified by those who do as weak or in some other way at fault. When the truth appears to be more along the lines of has the diet changed your insulin response? If it has become more sensitive, then you will not regain the same amount of weight as someone who’s insulin response has not been altered.

Low Fat – Mediterranean – Low Carb Diet Plans

This study compared 3 diets, calorie restricted low fat, mediterranean and no restrcition low carb. Strangely enough the low fat group lost the least amount of weight, the low carb just edged out the mediterranean diet but not really enough to make a huge difference.
