Why Diets Succeed and Fail

It’s always about small changes that helps achieve bigger results, I’m writing this because this is the time of the year when some people decide to change their eating habits or start something new which they will eventually give up when the going is tough. Please if you start something new please don’t let fear stop you, but instead use it as growth.

The simple answers why we get fat is the fat carbohydrate make us fat. Most of us know the people who say they lost significant weight after joining Weightwatchers or starting to exercise, the better explanation is any diet that succeeds is because the dieter restricts fattening carbohydrate from their diet.

To put it simply, those who lose fat on a diet do so because of what they are not eating; the fattening carbohydrate, not because of what they are eating. So basically, we succeed because we stop eating food that makes us fat and we get fat because we eat a lot of food that then makes us fat.  Whenever we go on a diet, we always make a considerable change to what we eat.

So, when calories are restricted diet fails, as they typically do and the same can be said of exercise programs. The reason is that they restrict something other than the food that make us fat, they restrict fats and protein which has no longer effects on insulin and fats deposition but are required for energy and for the rebuilding of cells and tissue. This is one of the major reasons why diets fail.

In other words, when you starve your body of nutrients that are required to build muscle and sustain energy, the resultant hunger will lead to failure. Our body also changes as we age so do our cells. We need to keep on feeding good quality food in order to maintain good diet and less frequent hunger. I remember when I fell for a low calorie diet and I was always hungry, so not good results with my diet and my behaviour.
