Free Diet Plans - Do They Work?

Apr 9, 2008
Slimming formulas, diet pills, hunger-controlling nutritional bars are expensive. Want to look good without parting with your money? How about trying some free diet plans?

Everybody wants to save money. Why spend when you can do it naturally and blissfully without spending a penny on those miracle weight loss products that do not necessarily work well on everyone. Free diet plans are now available everywhere. All you need to do is to grab the free diet plan that suits you best. But then again, since these diet plans are free, you have to keep you eyes peeled for the "catch."

First things first, browse through the free diet plans that are available in the Internet, magazines or books. Some of these free diet plans also come with diet recipes, along side with the weight loss strategies. Websites that offer these free diet plans are usually set up by dietitians or gym trainers who know quite a bit about diet plans. So if you are confident enough about the source behind the free diet plan that is recommended on the website, than you could give it a go.

However, experts have noted that while these diet plans are for free, they might not necessarily be healthy and good enough for your body. So, in order to meet your realistic goal of weight loss, use these tips to check if the free diet plan is suitable and reliable.

1. Whatever the free diet plan says, try and eat 6 small meals and snacks daily. (This is not necessary to lose weight, but many dieters have found that 6 meals a day can help you feel more satisfied and curb cravings.)

2. Choose healthy food selections such as fruits, vegetables, whole grain cereals, and the like. (These help keep calories at an acceptable range.)

3. Choose a free diet plan that is simple. (Simple diet plans are usually easier to stick with, and consistency is a huge key in getting good results.)

Some of these so-called free diet plans are not really free after all. Some would actually require you to actually buy the product to find out what it offers. So, do look out for these tricks that advertisers used to lure consumers into buying their product. Suppliers know the extent that consumers would go to just to achieve their desired waistline and aim to exploit that.

But if you are still conscious about the effects that these free diet plans might lead you, then how about squeezing a little brain juice and create your very own free diet plan? It can be relatively easy to create. All you need to do it to approximate the calorie requirements for the present weight then calculate your current calorie consumption per day.

Reduce your present day calorie intake by 450 calories and if your weight loss slows down, reduce the intake further by 100 per day. Just remember that the free diet plan could end up comprising the food choices including those with high nutrients and limit the number of foods available to you with reasonable calories.
