Sometimes we all wish there was a way to just magically melt off those stubborn pounds. Though fad diets offer these seemingly miraculous transformations with minimal effort they are often not only ineffectual for long term weight lost but can also cause severe health problems.

These often bizarre eating plans promise dramatic and unrealistic weight loss results, and take advantage of some people’s willingness to "try anything" to lose weight. Many fad diets are popular because they produce short term weight loss quickly, but these rapid results do not translate into long term weight loss. These diets are often severely unhealthy, and can actually cause long term damage to your health. Most encourage unhealthy eating habits and don’t meet Health Canada’s nutritional recommendations. Many encourage you to eat less calories than your body actually requires (a "crash" diet) which results in you losing water and lean muscle, not fat.

It is also difficult for most people to maintain these hyper restrictive, extremely low calorie diets for long periods of time. This results in people giving up and binging on the foods they love. This will cause them not only to regain the weight they already lost, but tends to also result in additional weight gain. If it sounds too good to be true, it likely is.

Fortunately, there is a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. A personalized diet and exercise plan from Paul Anthony at Dream Body will help you identify your weight loss goals and meet them in a healthy manner. The key to long term weight loss is making healthy lifestyle choices each and every day.
