|What are the most frequent errors of slimming diets.
Slimming diets themselves do not produce lasting effects, unless it is a permanent life style change and a 'change of mind'. Emotional Freedom Technique and the teachings of Abraham/Esther Hicks are wonderful tools to achieve just that.
All or nothing approach. Setting unrealistic goals. Not enough exercise. Not enough protein
Restriction and lack of education.
The most frequent errors of slimming diets include the over-focus on calorie-counting, fad diets, and weight loss at any cost. The focus should be on "getting healthy" not weight loss! If you get healthy, your body will burn the fat as fuel!
Also beware of foods that use "marketing" terms such as "low fat", no fat", "low cholesterol", "low-carb", "diet" foods, artificial sweeteners, "calories in equal calories out", so-called diet shakes, fasting, etc.
They don't encourage a change in life that consists of a proper diet and exercise. They want you to depend on their product to make them more money.
Not drinking the right water.
They don't teach good habits of life which is the real issue.
They fail to focus on the quality of the foods, instead looking mostly at quantity. Also, most diets don't follow through on the essential exercise portion of losing weight.
They are flawed in their approach. They do not focus on all aspects of the fitness equation. They do not focus on retaining or increasing lean muscle mass which is the driving force of our metabolism.
Focusing on including certain nutrients and avoiding others in their diets can have negative outcomes. When one is trying to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of their lives, I think it will work much better if you cover a wide array of different nutritional elements.
They do not work or work temporarily.
Calorie restriction. It slows down metabolic rate. We need to speed up our metabolisms to lose weight. How do we do that? Exercise and eating more frequently. Calorie restriction works against us.
Another error is focusing on weight loss, not fat loss. Most people on diets lose lean tissue. That should never be the goal.
Fad diets are a 4-letter word in my book. I don't advocate them or recommend them. Good nutrition trumps the fad slimming diet trends.
They somehow don't believe calories count.
That it's something that can happen overnight or in a week or in a month. It's a lifestyle change, not something that comes in a pill or fad diet.
Also, 'slim' is relative. Not everyone can achieve an athlete's or model's physique.
