The Greatest Diet DiscoveryWritten by DocStuey
Everyone knows someone, who knows someone else, that has done Atkins diet (or Adkins diet), or Weight Watchers diet, Scarsdale diet, Zone diet, or some other popular diet program with great results. So, who do you trust… which diets right for you? I mean there has to be 20-30 fast easy diets to lose 15-20 pounds of fat, maybe as much as 40 pounds of fat, over next few weeks, before your next party or vacation! I read those news flashes all time too! What a load of BS! Diets have been around for decades, and with all success stories, surely there must be good ones. Well news for you… if diets were answer, percentage of population classified as “Obese” or “Overweight” would not be on rise each and every year since assassination of JFK. Diets don’t have long term success. Diets typically create deficiencies one or several areas. Pounds lost, always include lean tissue an essential fluids as well as some stored body fat, this due largely to a brain produced enzyme “Lipoprotein Lipase”. We’ll discuss this enzyme in more detail in a detailed article later. Many diets do have some points of merit, and if followed to letter, can produce impressive short-term benefit and real reduction in overall body fat, which is goal. A big problem with diets is that most people going on a diet, are “ON” or “OFF a diet, never really changing life long habits that made them fat in first place. An even bigger problem, is that over 95% of these people diet, without ever understanding underlying cause/effect of diets they are doing. OK, now you kind of get message, diets don’t work. Diets are not long-term answer to a slim healthy you! Well good old DocStuey is more than pleased to announce, that after reviewing tons (no pun intended!)of BS internet driven diets, dieting, diet review sites, marketing all kinds of weight loss solutions that promise quick, painless, easy results… kind of results every one of 150 Million overweight North Americans dreams of, as only thing that actually sheds weight without effort, is their wallets… We have “The Answer You’ve Been Looking For!”. I tip my hat to Tom Venuto a self professed “Outlaw” Body builder, who’s had enough of all BS he’s seen daily over years in diet, health and fitness world. Born of his hands on experience over more than two decades, Tom has vowed to make his facts based knowledge available to those that are sincere and ready to make an effort to regain Total Control of Their Own Health and Wellness, once and forever!!! Tom offers real results, as fast as anyone could honestly produce, that is permanent and comfortably sustainable. Tom has done an excellent job in keeping format easy reading, enjoyable and fact filled... I couldn't put it down till I was done... he’s done a stellar job of dispelling numerous myths with rock solid facts... it shames me to say "Tom has presented a more complete, fact based knowledge, than most physicians I know... who are In The Know ". Although we may have few slight differences of opinion, they are just that "slight differences"... "Two thumbs up".
Simply Weight Loss -- Losing Weight is Easy if You Stop DietingWritten by Michael A. Smith, MD
The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System recently published their findings from a 21 state study with over 112,000 participants on how weight loss methods affect dieter's success.
Each participant was placed into one of four categories based on weight control method they used.
1. Increasing physical activity
2. Eating fewer calories
3. Combination of fewer calories with exercise
4. None (not trying to lose weight)
For those who were trying to lose weight, most common weight practices were eating fewer calories without other methods (32.3% of women, 24.1% of men) and eating fewer calories with exercise (33.8% of women, 19.9% of men).
Increasing physical activity as a sole weight-loss practice was reported by 3.4% of women and 4% of men.
The last statistic on exercising without dieting is where I get lost. It's hard for me to understand how only 3% of women and 4% of men use exercise as their sole weight loss practice. Is anything wrong with this?
Yes, we are wrong. The entire weight loss industry is wrong!
It all reminds me of a slogan from a few years ago, "Simply Weight Loss." It represented a return to diet basics. And that's when it hit me, a return to diet basics is what is wrong.
Dieting is Wrong
You're too heavy and you need to lose weight. The extra pounds pushing you above your ideal weight, resulted from a chronic state of positive energy balance...eating more calories (energy) than body needs.
This is usually followed by question, "Why doesn't my body just get rid of extra energy?" I totally agree. Just get rid of all that extra energy, send it on it's way. Unfortunately, laws of thermodynamics are what mess things up.
