The Reason why 95% of all Diets Fail Miserably

Are you tired of not meeting your weightloss goals?

Most extremely popular fad diets are extremely restrictive – not just in terms of how many (or should I say “few”) calories you are allowed to consume, but also with regards to which food groups you can choose from.  For instance, we have all heard of the “fat free” or “no carb” diets.  But these restrictive diets are all extremely unhealthy, and are doomed to fail from the start!  For starters, while starving your body on a 1000-calorie/day diet might make you lose weight (at least initially, until your body gives up on you), these “starvation” diets will only make your body fatter (and extremely tired/cranky) in the long run...

paleo diet dangerous

For those of you who haven’t heard, there’s this new fad out right now called the “paleo diet”.

Based on the principle that food was a whole lot healthier back before humans started processing it and putting it back together in pretty packages, the diet preaches that followers should eat an abundance of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, seafood, and nuts… and should completely avoid anything processed.

When I first heard about this diet, I thought it sounded pretty similar to the way I have been eating for the past five years. I figured it was the same old story -- some slick person with great marketing skills stumbled upon something that has existed for years & years ("healthy eating"), put a strange spin on it (the "paleo diet" lets you eat insects!) and slaps a name on it to make money. Ha!

But, before you go jumping on the paleo bandwagon, riding off into the stone age, and then posting about it on your twitter accounts…  let me warn you: Don’t fall for it, ladies!!!

For, though the premise behind the paleo diet is somewhat admirable, there are actually quite a few major problems with it in practice…
