Read This Before You Try Out The Next Weight Loss Program

Aug 17, 2007
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to lose weight then you're not alone. About 50 million Americans go on diets every year. And while some will succeed in losing weight, very few will manage to keep all of it off in the long run.

One reason for the low success rate is that many people look for speedy and effortless solutions to loss weight. In this age of scientific innovations and medical miracles, an effortless weight loss method doesn't exist. Yet many people still believe that a panacea or magic solution exist out there.

So the weight los industry came out with quick fix claims like "Eat All You Want and Still Lose Weight!" or "Melt Fat Away While You Sleep!" Many people invested their hopes and their money in all manner of pills, potions, gadgets, and programs that hold the promise of a slimmer, happier future.

The weight loss business is a thriving industry. Americans spend about $30 billion a year on all types of diet programs and products, including diet foods and drinks. Trying to sort out all of the competing claims often misleading, unproven, or just plain false can be confusing and costly.

There are many claims that sound too good to be true and consumers should be wary of them. When it comes to weight loss products or programs, consumers should be particularly skeptical of claims containing words and phrases. Here are some of them like easy, effortless, guaranteed, miraculous, magical, breakthrough, new discovery, mysterious, exotic, secret, exclusive or ancient.

Remember, there is nothing new under the sun. Yet some consumers still succumb to such advertisement and in some cases jeopardize their safety and health. Stick to the basics and use a sensible weight maintenance plan

Losing weight is not to be effortless. To achieve long term results, it's best to avoid quick fix schemes and complex regimens. Focus instead on making modest changes to your life's daily routine. A balanced healthy diet and regular exercise are the keys to maintain your ideal weight under control.

Consult with your doctor and other qualified health experts to determine your ideal healthy body weight. Eat regular and smaller portions and choose from a wide variety of foods. Consume foods naturally high in fiber like fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. Try to avoid foods high in fat: dairy products like cheese, butter, and whole milk; red meat; cakes and pastries. Exercise at least three times a week like walking, running or swimming.

Stick to these basics and you should be fine. It my save you from health complications and conditions. The money and time saved could be invested in many other areas of your life.
