There are so many celeb diets around these days it is hard to get some straight answers. Can you honestly get good weight loss results following on of these? Why do they never seem to work? Today we explain these myths in more depth for you.
We all know somebody who has fallen victim to these at some point. Usually a friend will have seen them featured in a glossy gossip magazine and been blown away by how easy it looked and how much ‘instant’ weight loss was guaranteed.
It’s common that folks will become addicted to the search for the ‘miracle pill’ which will allow them to get instant, zero effort results. That’s where these guys make their money at your expense, or rather the fact that you may be a tad naive. There are simple common attributes these routines always feature:
* People experience some weight loss for the first one or two weeks before hitting a wall, unable to shift another lb no matter how hard they work at it.
* Feeling and looking ill, rather than well, despite losing weight.
* Weight is quick to go straight back on when you finish your plan and return to eating regular food again.
Why does this happen? Today we will explain it for you. There are a few reasons for this. [youtube:2JYQ1hAdJSQ;Personal trainer Russ Howe PTI explains [link:celeb diets] here.;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JYQ1hAdJSQ&feature=related]
While forcing you to abstain from your favorite junk foods is a huge dieting mistake, the number one flaw in these routines is often that they simply drop the daily calorie intake way too far way too fast. This sets you up for failure right from the get go.
You see, the effect of this sudden drop in calories forces your muscles to enter what we trainers refer to as Starvation Mode. Your body actually stores as much fat as it can to save energy.
This is why it becomes almost impossible to lose any more weight despite working harder and eating barely enough to survive…
Furthermore, the overall goal is usually a quick fix one or two month target. This adds to the other flaws and creates an effect where people find their body just piles the weight back on and more when they return to eating normally.
The truth is when you diet you should not feel bad, you should not feel punished and you should not feel unwell. This is why they don’t work and offer nothing more than a passing dream of a miracle pill which, sadly, does not exist despite the massive amounts of salesmen and magazines prepared to take your money if you are prepared to fall for it one more time.
