Here’s Why Most People Fail to Lose Weight

If you’ve read pretty much any of my articles then you know that being as physically appealing as possible is one of the best ways to jump start your love life!

The thing is I bet you already knew that! You’ve tried dieting before and failed.

Trust me I feel your pain!

I used to be fat also and losing weight wasn’t easy! But I am living proof that it is possible and my clients that I’ve recommended this plan to are living proof as well!

Before we get into that though lets talk about why maybe you didn’t succeed at dieting.

4 Reasons Why Most Diets Fail

Wondering why you just cannot see success with your diet plan? Do you feel like every diet you go on, you eventually fall off somewhere along the line?

Are you ready to toss in the towel on fat loss for good?

Don’t be. If you stop and take a minute to look at the four reasons why most diets fail, and then find yourself a diet plan that overcomes these reasons, you will soon find yourself on track to optimal success.

Let’s look at the four key factors that you need to know.

Unrealistic Calorie Intakes

The first big reason why most diets fail is because they simply have you striving to take in an unrealistic number of calories each day. In other words, they put you into “starvation mode”. They are causing you to consume so little food that your body literally starts shutting down to conserve fuel.

When it does this, you know that you are on a one-way path to a fat loss plateau. Yes, you do need to lower your calorie intake to see fat loss results, but you need to do so wisely in a way that you can maintain your “metabolic engine”, so to speak.

Lack Of Satiety-Boosting Nutrients

Next, another big issue with most conventional diets is they aren’t providing you enough of the two most satisfying nutrients: protein and fiber. You need protein to function optimally. It’s also the nutrient that’s the slowest to break down and digest in the body, so it will provide immediate satiety.

Couple that with dietary fiber, which is found in fresh fruits and vegetables, and it’ll slow digestion even further.

Many crash diet plans are very low in protein, and while they do have you eating lots of vegetables, many discourage the consumption of fruit.

By making these two nutrients a focus of your plan instead, you can see results that much faster and enjoy being on the diet while you do.

Time Consuming Meal Prep

Who has an hour each and every day to meal prep? Not me — and definitely not you. Yet, many diet plans are so complex that they require this. If that’s the diet you’re on, it’s no wonder you’re failing.

Instead, you want to find an approach that gives you some basic and easy-to-implement guidelines that will help you realize true success with your program.

This plan should not take hours to follow each week, and should work with your lifestyle. When you find such a plan, it’ll be easier than ever to stick with.

Taking a Long-Term Approach

This sounds radical I know. You keep hearing on TV shows like Dr. Oz that weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint blah blah.  While yes that’s not wrong I don’t feel its the right approach to have in the beginning.

Look, we all already know how to lose weight. Eat less junk food and exercise more. The trick is to get people to stay motivated long enough to fight the reptile brain to stop eating the burgers, and pizza all the time.

The best way to do that is to satisfy peoples’ need to instant gratification. If people see drastic results right away that will motivate them and kick start their weight loss journey.

When I did regular diets of losing just 1-2 pounds a week it didn’t do shit for me. I didn’t notice my clothing fitting looser right away. I still wasn’t getting much play in the dating scene so I’d say ‘fuck it’ and go back to my pizza and tacos.

However, once I learned about the 5 commandments of weight loss I lost 21 pounds in 14 days! I started getting compliments at work, I started getting rejected less on grindr, and my clothes started fitting better!

That’s what gave me the motivation to keep going!
