What would you do for a Klondike Bar?Written by Aimee Deak
Unfortunately, words “diet” and “cheating” go hand in hand. When you say, “I’m on a DIET”, it usually means you are depriving yourself of something. Diets do not work; they are restrictive and can become exceedingly frustrating, leading you to “cheat”. The more you restrict calories and tempting treats you love, more likely you are to binge eat. This is counterproductive in a fat loss program and will prevent you from becoming lean.
I’m sure you know scenario; you embark on a weight loss plan (a.k.a. A Very Low Calorie Diet) fully confident and filled with motivation and willpower. You go out to eat and turn down dessert you desperately want and then have to sit at table and watch EVERYONE else gobble down their brownie ala- mode or a slice of Death by Chocolate cake. As days of deprivation go on you suddenly find yourself thinking about food more and more. You dream about pint of ice cream that’s calling your name. You begin to bargain with yourself, promising to do extra cardio or to fast in exchange for a cheat day.
This, of course, never comes to pass and you find yourself “starting over” on your DIET once a week. Worse yet, you have made no progress and have slowed your metabolism to a grinding halt by eat too few calories. The best way to lose weight is to adopt a balanced meal plan you can stick to for life! This means you can still enjoy so-called “forbidden foods” you love, only less often and in moderation. If you consistently eat “clean” and “balanced” your desire for “bad stuff” will eventually disappear.
If you have SEVERE difficulty resisting sugar and constantly have a high sugar craving, this may indicate that your diet is substantially low in “beneficial” fat and it is likely that you have an intestinal flora imbalance. Beneficial fats regulate mood, taste and fulfillment hormones that help you feel satisfied and reduce cravings. An intestinal flora imbalance means certain “shut off” nutrients that reduce need for sugars are not fully synthesized into your blood stream. Combined, both of these problems cause you to hold onto fat and create cravings for simple sugars.

Why Doctors Recommend Phentermine Weight Loss Pills
In a world where beauty is key to success and a slim figure only way to social acceptance some people may become outcasts due to being overweight.
Its one thing to be ‘chunky’, another to be ‘healthy’ but when you cross line and become overweight, its time to take action to rectify situation.
Dr. Atkins Diet, Low Fat Diet, Salad Diets etc are all a thing of past. None of these works fast enough to actually make a difference and if it does its only temporary. The fact is no one no matter how strong a will person may have will be able to remain on a diet for life.
This adverse factor causes many people to remain on diets throughout their life---with little difference made on their physical and physiological structures. A person’s metabolism has a certain rhythm and no diet will ever change that. So if you have a tendency to gain weight, well then you can go on a starvation diet and still gain a few pounds rather than losing them!
