The diet industry is booming as more and more people are deciding to conquer their obesity and lose weight. Everywhere you turn it looks there is some new quick weight loss diet plan popping up that claims to be the best way to lose weight.
Sure the promises of these programs sound great, but the truth is that most of these quick weight loss plans do not work for a number of different reasons. Many of the plans are too restrictive, make you eat foods you do not like, leave you feeling hungry and worst of all actually decrease your metabolism. This article will discuss some of the main reasons that most quick weight loss diet plans fail.
Probably the largest reason that most diet plans fail is simply that people do not stick with them. Most diet plans that promise quick weight loss restrict both the types of foods that you can eat and the number of calories that you can consume each day.
This can leave you feeling hungry and driven and make it much easier to give in to cravings and wind up binging. For many people, if they binge or "cheat" on their diet once they feel they have blown the diet and give up on it all together.
Many diets do not allow you to eat the foods that you like, but instead force you to eat things that are not appetizing or do not appeal to you. Again, because of this you can be left feeling either bored or deprived and wind up cheating on the diet.
One of the worst parts about most diets that promise quick weight loss is that they can actually decrease your metabolism and make it harder for you to lose weight. See, a lot of quick weight loss diet plans severely cut the number of calories that you consume each day.
To compensate for the reduced number of calories that you are taking in your metabolism automatically adjusts to run at a slower speed. Because of this it becomes more difficult to lose weight. Even worse, though, is that when you actually do go off the diet and keep eating normally your metabolism will still be running at a slower speed until it has time to adjust back up to a normal level. That make it much easier to gain back any weight that you may have lost on the diet.
