Lets face it, who wants to spend weeks, months or even years to lose weight? One of the reasons why cosmetic surgery is so popular is because it offers us an instant fix. The idea of going into a doctor's surgery "fat" and coming out "thin" 2 hours later is indeed very tempting. Fortunately the high price tag on cosmetic surgery keeps a lot of people from doing it, but it does not keep a lot of people from going for something that is just as dangerous - FAD diets.
The diet industry knows that people are suckers for anything that is instant. Instant weight loss, although we all know is not possible, is being advertised all over the TV, radio and internet. the promise of losing weight quickly without doing much will appeal to virtually all dieters who are suffering away on their diet plans or exercise routines.
Although there are some diets that can help you lose weight quickly, its never a healthy choice. The first problem with rapid weight loss diets is the fact that its often just a false promise and it can leave you jaded and even discouraged from even attempting to lose weight. Using fat burning pills and other forms of instant diets that make you lose weight quickly can be very dangerous. It can affect your hormones in a very negative way, affect your heart and even effect your blood sugar levels which can have some dire long term effects.
Losing or gaining weight too fast is never a good idea. Its unhealthy and while our bodies is designed to change and to accommodate change, its not designed to change overnight. Virtually anyone who's had success with rapid weight loss diets do come round eventually and when they do, they gain all that weight back - and some. Because your body gets better at storing fat when you deprive it, when you do start eating normally again, it can add on pounds faster than you lost it - which again adds to this unhealthy cycle.
The way to lose weight and to keep it off is to simply change your lifestyle. You'd be surprised how quickly you can lose weight when you do it the right way. At first it might be slow but because you are changing your lifestyle, the change is permanent and the results are permanent. This is what will give you long term success.
