Why other diets
Other diets fail because they are only concerned with weight loss, not fat loss. They are also interested in trying to give you a quick fix, so that you'll see rapid results. You'll lose 8-13 pounds rapidly on these diets in the first two weeks but most of it isn't fat loss. People happy to use these low carbohydrate (carb) diets get very excited at first, losing so much at once, but they have been fooled into thinking they have lost fat, when actually most of the loss was from glycogen stored in the muscles (carbs stored in the muscles). Your body can hold 400-1200 grams of carbs in the muscles as glycogen, each unit of carb binds with 3 units of water, so you have 1600-4800 grams stored, or about 3.5 - 10.5 pounds. When you deplete your carbs, by depleting the stored glycogen, you aren't losing fat, which is what you're trying to lose. These diets fool the people into thinking they have lost fat, and they get so excited that they lost so much so fast, but after that initial weight "loss" the pounds don't come off fast anymore, and people get discouraged. One funny thing these people have learned is to not carb up though, otherwise, as these diets have said, they'll rapidly "gain" the weight that they worked so hard to lose those first two weeks. They're actually just restoring their glycogen levels.
One problem with a lot of low fat diets is that they don't include enough protein to effectively suppress catabolism. They include too many carbs, so you're stuck with high insulin levels, followed by huge crashes.
Low carbohydrate diets are great for fat loss, because they're necessarily high in protein, so there is a higher thermal effect. Low carbohydrate diets also control insulin surges, and most of the time insulin is a potential fat storage hormone. They also force your body to turn to fat for more of its energy. But low carbohydrate diets can be extremely hard to stay on for a long period of time, because your brain and muscles prefer energy from carbs rather than fat, and your brain can cause you to binge for carbs. Staying on a low carbohydrate diet for a long period of time also lowers leptin levels, which in turn slows down fat loss rates.
With these other diets, it doesn't matter whether you choose low carb or low fat because none of these diets provide people with a road map by telling them exactly what to do. They also promise more than they can deliver.Many diets will tell you that it is almost impossible to achieve this state of leanness, because with their diet that is true. They tell you that you'll reach a "set point" meaning your body can't get any leaner, and that it isn't feasible or realistic to try to get a magazine quality body.
With 99% of the other diets out there, you will never acquire
an elite body that is cut up, and that, with two-weeks
of preparation, could be on a fitness magazine cover. With 99%
percent of all diets out there, including all the big ones, you're
destined to FAIL at your diet. Sure you'll lose some weight (about
one-third of it muscle, so your metabolism will slow, setting you up for
another session of "yo-yo" dieting). You'll lose some fat to be sure, but
not enough to achieve what you really want, which is a body you've been
fooled into believing that it is unattainable, but that is because you've
tried these other diets before and have failed at them.
You could go to biggest diet web site on the web, but take a look at the editor of that web site. Maybe he should try one of the diets he's been selling. Wouldn't you like to utilize a diet, written by a person who practices what they preach? Even Dr. Phil wrote a diet book. Why would you follow his diet advice when this guy needs to go on a diet himself? Right now I'm 40 years old, and there aren't too many other 40 year olds in the shape I'm in. I'm 6 feet tall and 220 pounds carb depleted (such as after 3 days on a low carb diet combined with exercise twice per day), or 241 pounds carb loaded (such as after the cheat day), with 205 pounds of it NOT being fat, so I'm 7 percent body fat carb depleted and 15 percent body fat carb loaded. I'm going to be just as muscular and lean now as when I'm 65 years old, and I believe I can do it until I die, which I believe will be over 100 years old. If a person who writes a diet book, or a person manages a diet web site is himself or herself overweight, write off his or her diet.Diet until you get to your ideal weight
