Have you lost weight in the past only to regain it a short time later? Have you followed every diet including Atkins, South Beach, the Drinking Man's diet, the Peanut Butter diet, or even the Chocolate Diet?
All of these diets work, and none of them work, meaning you can and probably do lose weight on any of them, but you won't keep it off. Why not? Because the day will come when the diet is over and you're right back to your regular routine; the same routine that got you fat in the first place.
In the past diets carried a warning not to stay on them longer than the prescribed period; usually two weeks, some a mere three days. Today's popular diets are attempting to style themselves as lifestyle choices, but this isn't working either.
People want to be able to eat a sandwich now and then. They want the burger and the bun! Strive for balance choosing foods you prefer, and you'll have a better chance at lasting weight loss success.
About Raw Food Diets
Raw food diets can be a great way to not only lose weight but also led a much healthier, natural lifestyle in general.
Most raw food diets are plant-based, with at least 75% of the diet composed of raw food. Food examples include living and raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, rolled or flaked grains, and seaweeds. Some adherents may also eat cooked grains and legumes, fresh fish and poultry.
For the strict raw food diet, however, nothing should be heated over 116 degrees Fahrenheit. Some raw food dieters can be classified as vegans as well.
An Exercise Plan To Lose Weight
Do you have an exercise plan to lose weight? Two excellent choices to consider are the elliptical workout and the treadmill weight loss workout.
Let's compare the two kinds of workouts so you will be able to determine which exercise plan to lose weight works best for you.
An elliptical trainer workout has become very popular and actually has a few advantages over a treadmill.
It is less strenuous to the knees, joints and lower back so it is very suitable for people with injuries.
It also works all the parts of your body continuously giving you a total body workout. An elliptical trainer workout is great for cardio fitness and you can get a good workout in a short period of time.
A treadmill workout is still a very popular workout today. Many people buy a treadmill so the whole family can use it. A treadmill workout is perfect for beginners because the intensity in the workout is adjustable by walking, jogging or running.
