It seems as if a day doesn’t go by when we don’t hear about something related to weight loss, diets or obesity. The latest figures from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Health Group and the Trust for America’s Health predicts a national obesity rate of 44 percent by 2030. With so many well-known diets available today, why is it the weight of the nation seems to keep increasing?
The answer is simple: Most diets don’t work. Let’s take a look at some of the more common diets out there today, then discuss the one and only way to lose and maintain weight successfully.
For starters, most diets are not about constant improvement and a healthy way of living. Any diet that minimizes or eliminates intake of any overall type of nutrient will wreak havoc with prolonged use. Compounding the problem is that people get frustrated and start switching diets. The body becomes confused; the diets are not effective and can have serious side effects.
