What Weight Loss Programs Don't Tell You

What Weight Loss Programs Don't Tell You

95% of people who start a diet will fail within the first three weeks! New research shows us the facts.

(PRWEB) July 27, 2002


Melbourne, Australia - July 27, 2002 -- research has discovered startling new results based on the failures of most commercial diet programs.

Unfortunately, virtually all commercial weight loss programs are shock diets - feast and famine. One day you're eating bacon and eggs, sunny-side up. The next, it's lettuce and mung beans. Say hello to your new diet! The only problem is the culture shock that diets cause makes them unsustainable, even over the short term, and the diet is quickly abandoned, often as early as within the first few days.

Researches have shown that this style of dieting is doomed to failure, and is the leading cause of people gaining weight, after repeated cycles of “yo-yo” dieting.

According to Tarquin James of Weight Loss International, the only type of diet that is successful over the long-term is a change in eating patterns incorporated into a proper lifestyle change. Any changes in diet should be made gradually over a period of time.

Serious medical problems have been reported when the number of calories consumed by otherwise healthy people is drastically slashed. Blood sugar levels plummet, and people can feel nauseous, dizzy, and in extreme cases, even death has been recorded.

According to Weight Loss International,

"We can only recommend diets which are responsible and based on a common-sense approach to sensible eating. Fad diets are out! Quick fixes unfortunately lead to quick failures. People need to understand that they're planning a whole way of life, and not settle for a band-aide solution."

Tarquin recommends that following a properly balanced program - such as Weight Loss International's "Slim for Life" program - is the only way that weight loss can successfully be reached and maintained over the long-term.

"It's time we woke up to reality, and realized that long-term results need a sensible, long-term approach".
