Log on to Amazon.com and you are sure to find an unbelievable number of dieting books being sold.
So that begs the question…
With so much information about dieting, why do so many people still struggle to lose weight and get healthy?
This is usually because the majority of individuals writing these books have one goal in mind, make as much money as possible.
Many of these authors know that most people know absolutely nothing about nutrition.
So they come up with a sexy message, put it in a sexy package, and then sell it to people who are desperate to get healthy.
3 Things So Called “Diet Gurus” Hope You Never Find Out
Our goal at Diet Breakthroughs is the share the best health and fitness information with all of our readers.
We want you to be well informed when it comes to what you put in your body and the information you choose to believe.
With that being said, here are 3 things most dieting gurus hope you never find out.
There Are No Secret Fat Burning Foods
One of the biggest cons in the world of diet and nutrition is selling people on the idea of secret fat burning foods.
We hate to break it to you, but there is no such thing as secret fat burning foods.
Yes there are certain foods that will increase fat oxidation.
But when its all said and done the net result is exactly the same.
So instead of seeking out special fat burning foods, focus on eating a healthy, well balanced diet.
There Is No Magical Diet
This is another one that far too many people have bought into.
You have the keto diet…The paleo diet…The Atkins diet.
This diet…That diet.
There are literally a million different diets you can try.
And truth be told, not one of those diets is better than the other.
As a matter of fact, research shows that if you control protein and calorie intake the result of every diet is pretty much the same.
Instead of asking what the best diet is, you should instead ask what is it that you need to know about nutrition to reach your goals.
Knowing this information will serve you much better than jumping from diet to diet.
Once you understand the basics of nutrition you will never need to go on a “diet” again.
You Have To Do More Than Diet To Achieve Good Health
Most people view their diet as the end all be all when it comes to achieving good health.
While dieting is an important part of achieving good health, it is just that, a part.
Please don’t misunderstand what is being said here.
Dieting does help you get healthier.
However it only does so in one direction.
For example, when you diet you reduce the amount of calories you consume.
As a result you will experience lower body fat, lower blood pressure, your lipid profiles will improve, and your overall body weight will be lower.
It will also help regulate your thyroid function.
While all of those things are wonderful, if you truly want to optimize your health you must also incorporate exercise.
There are literally a million different reasons you should add exercise to your weekly routine.
Some of the benefits of doing so include lower resting heart rate, improved bone density, better flexibility, improved sleep, and improved muscle mass just to name a few.
So as you can see, to achieve optimal health you must have a balance between eating a healthy diet and exercising.
While there are some really great diet books out there, keep in mind the majority of them are only after your money.
They will literally say anything if they believe it will get you to purchase their product.
When it boils down to it the type of diet you choose to eat really doesn’t matter.
What matters is you find a healthy diet that you can actually sustain.
When you jump from diet to diet you basically set yourself up for failure.
This is because fad diets aren’t designed to be sustainable.
Ever wonder why people who are always on a diet tend to never lose any weight?
Or if they do lose weight they gain it all back as soon as they go off the diet?
Its because diets aren’t sustainable.
That’s why it is so important you learn as much as you can about nutrition and exercise.
Truth be told, you can still eat all of your favorite foods and get in great shape.
The key is learning how to make healthy substitutions and practicing portion control.
When you have those two things in order there really isn’t anything you can’t eat.
Do a little research on flexible dieting and you will see how you don’t need to diet to get amazing results.
