98 Percent of Dieters Fail: A Sensible Lifestyle is the AnswerWritten by Josie Anderson
What Diet Industry Does Not Want You To Know: 98 Percent of Dieters Fail. 98 Percent of dieters either quit diet or are not able to keep weight off permanently. This is because diets are to restrictive and force people into cheating because their diet is not providing nutrition that body requires. Most diets require something to be cut out. Low Carb Diets require that you restrict carbs, body needs carbohydrates for energy thus if there is restrictive carb intake body will crave carb laden foods causing diet sabotage. Low fat diets require that you cut out fat, making people fear all fat believing that any fat is bad, and causing body to crave fat laden foods.
Why is diet industry going to set you up for failure and not tell you that you have a 98 percent chance that you will come crawling back to them yet once again. To get your money. Itís been estimated that $46 billion was spent on diet products and programs last year alone. The average diet plan cost over $80 dollars each week. If 98 percent didnít fail diet industry wouldnít be needed any longer. Nobody would be overweight and everybody would know what would work to lose weight.

Smarter EatingWritten by Joe Maresca
Dieting doesn't have to be a chore. Actually, you can eat what you like and still cut pounds. How you ask? By smarter eating. For example, there are 7 days in a week. Let us say you eat clean for 2 days with third day being a cheat day. More times then not, you are eating well and still having what you like to eat. This has many benefits. You get to reward yourself for successfully eating correctly first 2 days and then you shocked your metabolism to burn even more calories by incorporating that 3rd day as your cheat day. When you eat clean for long periods of time, your metabolism adapts to this, so you have to shock you metabolism to kick start extra calorie burning. Some of easiest ways to eat smarter are,
1. Drink plenty of water during your meals. You will fill up on water and not consume extra calories.
