Weight Loss Programs – Why They Fail…

How many times have you or someone you know jumped on the latest weight loss programs bandwagon?

Chances are, at least a few. And chances are, since you’re reading this, it didn’t exactly stick.

Most weight loss programs are flawed. Most weight loss programs can help you lose weight but aren’t designed for long lasting effects.

Here are 5 reasons weight loss programs fail.

  1. They make big promises – Companies promote their programs with big promises that are nearly impossible to achieve. Lose 10 pounds in 2 days? Yeah right. Guess what happens when you buy the product or start the program and don’t lose 10 pounds in 3 days? You quit, and you blame yourself when it’s not your fault at all. It’s the program, it’s flawed & designed to fail.


  1. They don’t take exercise into consideration – Most weight loss programs put all the emphasis on the calories you consume, and very little on the amount of exercise. The fact is, if you exercise and at the very least maintain your current levels of lean mass, you’ll burn more calories day in and day out.


  1. They are based on calorie deprivation – Guess what? You can lose weight on a 100% carbohydrate diet. You can lose weight on a 100% protein Diet. You can lose weight eating nothing but Debbie Cakes. If your weight loss program severely restricts your food consumption, you’re GUARANTEED to lose weight no matter what you eat. But the bad thing about it is that it’s not designed to support your metabolism. So when you stop the program, you’ll gain the weight back plus some in a very short time period.


  1. Weight Loss Programs care too much about the “Scale”. Yeah, it’s great if you can lose 30 pounds in 2 months. But if the main concern of the program you’re following is how much you weigh, then beware. The human body can shed “pounds” very rapidly, but it may not always be the type of weight you want because it can….


  1. Make you a skinny fat person. Have you ever seen a person that looks good in clothes, but once they take their shirt off, there’s nothing but loose sagging skin? They may “look” skinny with clothes on, but as soon as the clothes come off, the truth is revealed: They’re a skinny fat person. Going on severely restricted diets, only concerning yourself with the scale, and not exercising is one way to lose weight, but it also increases your chances of becoming “skinny fat”
