The problem will low-calorie diets
Far too many people associate the words "dieting" and "weight loss" with images of low calorie meals and periods of virtual starvation.
There in lies a problem. Low-cal diets may work as a very short term option, but who wants to go through life eating like a hamster and tasting food that is less than palatable?
Starving the body
During low calorie diet the body actual begins to store more body fat by slowing down the metabolic system - the primary energy burner.
Eat what you like!
By occasionally eating what your palette desires (e.g. ice-cream and chocolate etc) you won't feel like you are depriving yourself of the foods you love. In the long run this means that you're less likely to binge eat.
Changing old habits
Aim to cut out unnecessary fats from your diet and you can have the occasional treat, safe in the knowledge that it will not harm you ultimate goal.
