Women on 10 day diets are they falling in to a dangerous trap?

Mar 28, 2008
A lot of women are now looking at 10 day diets.With many of the diet books, you'll discover that they provide a intensive 10-14 day weight loss phase initially,then you shift to a maintenance program for a much longer period over the next few weeks.

This is where programs like the Dreambody System by Graham Foster and other similar programs come to the fore, as they take the woman who is trying to lose more weight to the next level. Other popular programs which cater for this longer term more sustained weightloss are the Weight Watchers program and Jenny Craig.

This what I will refer to as second phase weight loss programs, as opposed to the 10 day diets found widely across the internet. These programs give you greater opportunity to make lifestyle changes and usually involve making much slower dieting progress of just a few pounds of weight lost a week.But over a much longer period of time.

But if this is the long term way to go when it comes to weight loss why is it that 10 day dieting solutions and even some diets which promise results in less than a week are so popular. Well it's all to do with instant gratification we all like to find a easy and instant weight loss solution and that's the reason why 10 day diets are just so popular.

Lets face it when we think about going on a diet the last thing we want to think is how long am I going to be stuck on this lousy diet. For some people the instant result is all they need from a diet if they only need to maybe drop a dress size to squeeze in to a new dress for a special occasion or want to look good on the beach during the summer vacation. It is for this reason more than any other that people buy in to the message of these diet books.

Well I have good and bad news for you when it comes to 10 day diets the good news is they do actually work and provided you stick to them you can shed about 5 pounds a week with some fairly simple changes to your eating habits.

Now not everything is black and white but these quick fix solutions are fine for a short period but in my experience few people are prepared to eat this sort of diet for long and their are even some diets which although popular are actually bad for you health over a long period.

It's true whenever you just want to shed a few pounds the fast solution could easily comprise a simple diet that you will be able to easily sustain for few days or even with some caution try a total detox. (I'm not personally in favor of this technique without supervision since people do tend to become rather faint after a couple of days of not eating at all and it can trigger other health problems)

I'm sorry to say that if you have a life-threatening obesity problem or you need a program that will work long term to shift quite a bit of weight and need assistance in making significant ifestyle changes (which is crucial to longer term prolonged weight loss) the ten day diet and even the two week diet isn't going to do it for you.
