Why fad diets don't work...

Have you noticed how people jump onboard with a popular fad diet, lose 5, 10 or even 20 pounds…only to gain it all back and then some? Why does this happen?

It’s actually a simple concept, and once you understand it, you will be forever saved from the tortures of yo-yo dieting. 😱

Fad diets usually involve unsustainable calorie restrictions and many involve unbalanced nutrient intakes. Most fad diets also ignore one major component to shaping up: exercise.

You see, most fad diets operate on one age old premise: cut calories, cut calories, cut calories. By restricting the type and amount of food consumed the fad dieter usually sees an immediate drop in weight.

Which is great but...

because the dieter feels SO deprived on this unsustainable eating plan, they often re-bound, eating with reckless abandon post diet. In fact, the whole idea of a diet means "temporary" so dieters can't wait to eat all their favorite foods as soon as the torture is over!

When the fad dieter returns to their pre-diet eating habits, there's one major difference in their body due to the sudden drop in pounds: Their calorie requirements have gotten smaller because they have decreased their body mass.

In practical terms this means that the dieter will begin gaining weight even though they are eating their normal pre-diet portions. 😱 And since exercise hasn’t become a part of their routine, the unneeded calories will result in pounds gained.

So what’s a dieter to do?

Find a brand-new diet to follow—right? Wrong.

There is a way to drop pounds and firm your body, but you won’t read about it in the next diet book or hear it on the news.

The solution to your weight loss struggle is a lifestyle change.

What is a lifestyle change? To change your lifestyle means to replace unhealthy habits with healthy ones, and to do so consistently. It isn’t something you do for a week or two, only to revert back your old ways—a lifestyle change redefines who you are and what you do.

I know this is starting to sound like some heavy stuff but hear me out. Changing your lifestyle from one that is unhealthy to one that is healthy will be the best thing that you ever do for yourself. Trust me, I help people like you make this change every day with amazing results. 😍

Fact: The current "shape" your body is in is the direct result of your current lifestyle.

Ok, so how do you change your lifestyle?

That is a great question, and it might seem overwhelming, but the answer is actually easier than you might think.

Most people who are unhappy with their bodies are really only holding on to a few unhealthy habits. Once these destructive habits are identified and then replaced with healthy habits, their body naturally transforms.

In other words, to get the body that you want, simply identify your unhealthy habits and replace them with healthy ones.

Here are the most prevalent unhealthy habits:

  • The habit of inactivity. Failing to exercise on a consistent basis is one of the most destructive obstacles for your health and fitness. (The key word here is consistent. If you aren’t exercising at least 3-4 times each week, then you own this habit.)

  • The habit of overeating. Consuming calories in excess of your daily caloric needs is one of the main reasons that more adults are overweight today than ever before.

  • The habit of empty calories. Filling your diet with foods that hold little to no nutritional value is a great way to expand your waist. (Hint: if a food item is made up of mainly sugar, starch and/or fat consider it ‘empty’ calories.)


You can lose weight and improve both your appearance and your health. You can look and feel great. You can transform yourself into the person that you’ve always wanted to be.
