So little time and too many fad diets! They come in and go right back out of fashion in a New York minute. Too many to count and none of them healthy, though there are still some rational alternatives.
We’re always looking for every possible new fad diet or newfangled trick to lose more weight. Eat this, don’t eat that, drink grapefruit juice, or try the keto diet, but what really works? It might turn out to be something simple, and there’s evidence to prove it.
No doubt you have heard of the new “It” diet, the ketogenic (keto) diet.
Celebrities rave about it, and it all sounds pretty great, especially when you hear you can lose so much weight in such a short time (emphasis on the short time).
As the radio blares, your ears immediately perk up at the sound of “you can lose up to 40 pounds in just two weeks and still eat what you want.”
By now, most of us have become aware that there’s a big different between a fad diet and healthy weight loss, but sometimes the sales pitches are too good to be true. So, what exactly should you be on the lookout for when determining the difference?
Many of us have been to those restaurants where your serving size could feed a family of four. You have heard this before, but nevertheless we will repeat it. You don’t have to eat everything on your plate.
It’s kind of like wash, rinse, repeat.
Diet, gain back the weight, try another diet (still gain back the weight).
