The perfect weight loss solution!Written by Lynda Lock
The main contributing factors to failure on a weight loss program are hunger and energy loss. The majority of foods today, even "good foods" such as fruit and vegetables, are nutritionally deficient due to over processing, chemical spraying, early harvesting and, in case of meats, use of antibiotics. As a result of these factors, average person would need to consume around 4000 calories worth of food to meet their daily nutritional requirements. For women recommended daily intake is around 1500 and for men around 2500 so it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out what we'd all look like if we ate 4000 calories per day! It takes only one nutrient deficiency for body to attempt to satisfy that deficiency by increasing appetite, hence cravings and hunger that dieters face daily, not to mention lethargy and tiredness caused by lack of proper fuel. Couple this with a typical "diet plan" of restricting food intake (and therefore restricting nutrition in an already deficient diet) and it's not hard to see why 70% of people fail on a typical weight loss program. The body actually needs good nutrition to perform all of it's functions properly so without this, body malfunctions! Fat is not metabolized, toxins are not processed, good nutrients are not utilized properly and any of 70% of other ailments and illnesses caused by a bad diet could also rear their ugly head. So dieter is not only trying to cope with mental challenges of being on a "diet" but is also expecting body to perform properly and burn fat even though it is not being given right fuel in order to do so. It's no wonder weight loss can be so difficult!

Diet Basics releases a revolutionary new system that makes your diet work. The new system complements your current weight loss program and helps it to prevent diet shock and ultimately, weight regain.
Diet Shock Definition
Diet Shock describes a state of emergency energy conservation your body enters when faced with fewer calories and weight loss. In an energy conservation state, your body will counteract your own efforts to lose weight to protect against starvation.
Starvation? Yes, all diets lead to weight loss by lowering amount of food you eat. When you eat fewer calories your own body interprets this as a potential food shortage and it responds by conserving energy, so that you can survive famine.
It takes time for body's efforts to show. Usually, by time you stop dieting, stage is set for weight regain, gaining of weight during or immediately after dieting.
Diet Shock, initiated by dieting to lose weight, results in weight regain for about 67% of first time dieters. Bottom line...dieting causes weight gain, specifically weight regain! But it gets worse...
