When I hear someone is going on a diet, basically they want to lose weight by reading a diet book authored by and individual that may not have the right qualifications to suggest that their way is the best way to lose weight in a very short period of time.
I'm amazed that as individuals we seek out people that claim they have the magic formula to lose 10 pounds in a week. That's all we need to know and we buy the diet book. How desperate can we be! Ok, let me give you my view and I hope you enjoy it.
The following factors contribute to gaining and losing weight: Family Genes, our life style, work ethic, laziness and exhaustion go hand in hand, being barraged by multimillion dollar marketing firms by multimillion dollar companies to persuade you that they product is the best tasting and lack of will power and stress.
Following these diet books disregard or even consider these factors. The books take you out of your comfort zone. You spend monies on prepackaged food, buy ingredients that taste terrible or you have to go out of your way to purchase really healthy organic ingredients. Items "Organic" cost more, any healthier?
Drastic changes to your diet does irreversible damage to your body. It sends shock waves to all your organs and just when they are used to the diet routine, you fall back to your regular routine and gain back the weight.
The word that should be emphasize is "USE COMMON SENSE"
My 1 paragraph Diet book is
-USE COMMON SENSE (Think about what your eating)
-SEE YOUR DOCTOR
-CALORIES for men and woman
-EXERCISE; gradual not painstaking
Any questions, just ask.
