There are a lot of fad diets that are really effective in the short term: The Hollywood Diet, calories calculating, Atkins`, blood groups, cabbage's, detoxifying, eating plants, south's, vegetarian, pineapple and grapefruit diets.
However, even though there are a large variety of diets to choose from, they all have one thing in common say physicians: they rarely help you keep the weight off. Of course, all weight loss pills and fad diets will promise and guarantee long-lasting results for the rest of your life. But that's easier said than done. The easiest way is to eliminate fatty foods, drink less and exercise at least three times a week and you'll lose all the weight you want without any problem.
Sometimes it takes more time than you want to spend, but if you're patient and follow a sensible routine, you will reach the weight you want, and see visible results of your efforts. The problem with fad diets is that, many times after a person reaches the weight they want, they begin to eat twice as much as they have did before the diet! It's only natural that after being starved, the body tries to reach its natural weight. The point is that our habits usually prevail over our wishes.
Remember one basic rule of all diets and especially of those so-called "quick weght loss diets": the method of correct eating must become your health guide for ever. Of course, you want to eat! But if you want to eat then choose what will be the healthiest ingredients to put in your stomach: oily cake or fruit salad? Sandwiches with fat sausages or a cabbage salad with piece of chicken? Coffee with milk and sugar or a glass of apple and grapefruit juice?
People always have a choice! Nobody says that having eaten one sandwich a day for two weeks you will make you overweight. But nobody asserts that your dinner and breakfast must contain pies, sandwiches, ice-creams, coca-cola and other high calories meal either.
Consequently, if you choose to follow a specific diet anywhere from one to six months, you will develop eating habits that will become normal. For example, there is a very convenient diet among the many fad diets and that is the grapefruit diet. You can eat fresh grapefruit or purchase grapefruit extract at a drug store. To be successful, you must eat between 8 and 10 grapefruit every day for at least a month. And drink at least 4 glasses of grapefruit juice per day.
In addition to pineapple, grapefruit stimulates your metabolism to burn fats quickly and assist in weight loss. American scientists proved that grapefruit really assists in quick weight loss even if you eat oily and fried meal. A special grapefruit diet test was made on some applicants. And it was proved that using grapefruit and its fresh juice in food stimulates the body to lose weight in a very short time.
Moreover, the results after that diet are permanent if you will repeat that diet later (through some weeks) and are not permanent results if the diet used once. Also, scientists came to the conclusion that after twelve weeks of using grapefruits and its juice in food you can lose from 10 to 15 kilograms. Moreover, research has proved that in addition to helping with weight loss, grapefruit assists in the production of the blood's natural insulin supply.
