Dieting Is More Dangerous Than Obesity Date Published

If your goal is better health and a smaller gut, there’s a better way!

Let me first compliment you on your commitment to lose weight and get healthy! Despite gyms are full to overflow, and resolutions to lose weight and get healthy is the number one goal again, people falsely believe that losing weight equals getting healthy.

Along with new gym memberships, are new diet plans. The Keto Diet, South Beach Diet, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, WW, the list is endless. Thankfully science is beginning to look at diet programs and the report is not good: dieting is worse for you than being overweight. Reducing calories and eliminating entire categories of foods puts a toll on the body. It damages the entire metabolic process. Diets are now being looked at as the leading cause of premature deaths. This may explain the declining life span of Americans.

Dieting Messes With Your Metabolism

First, let me say that any reduction in caloric intake will result in weight loss. That’s a fact. But here’s what happens when you follow a calorie restrictive diet plan; your metabolic rate — the rate in which your body expends energy — drops. The leading cause of death occurring for people following restrictive diets are from heart attacks and strokes. That makes sense because these dieters are reducing caloric intake that is needed for increased physical activity. Dieters thinking that the more exercise performed, the more weight is loss, but increased exercise also increases risk to the heart. The unintended consequence is heart attack or stroke. Adding to this problem is the metabolic process slows to a near standstill creating a further stress that kills.

Dieting Is a Nightmare for Your Gut Health

The true effects of dieting on the body becomes clearer as researchers start to do more controlled studies on dieting. We discovered that diets have a profound consequence on gut bacteria. This realization has caused health experts to pause and say “you need to think before you go on a diet!” and the reasons are obvious. Dieting alters your gut bacteria, thereby affecting your ability to gain or lose weight. We aim to educate. You will learn from Foodology that dieting promotes long term weight gain and short term weight loss.

Dieting has also shown to produce more irritable bowel symptoms and more colon, rectal, renal and liver cancers. One of the most effective selling points of commercial diet programs is a testimonial of someone who lost a lot of weight. “I lost 50 pounds and you can too!” You see the new attractive body and say to yourself, “I can do that too!” So you try to follow their plan. What you don’t hear about is the disasters that follow. You’ve heard people say “I’ve tried everything to lose weight and I can’t” and that may be true.

How to Lose Weight and Get Healthy Without “Dieting”

At the top of our list is FORGET about “dieting.”

Doctors are now avoiding the term entirely because the estimate of weight loss is misleading. When the routine pertains to the restrictive behavior of reducing calories and eliminating entire food groups to shed weight, one thing is clear: It doesn’t work! But that doesn’t mean you should “throw in the towel.” Instead, — and this is as hard as dieting — better your mental and physical health by making small shifts in how you eat, exercise, and make healthy choices.

Foodology INC. To the Rescue

Let’s say your New Year’s resolution is to lose 30 pounds in six months. How you resolve to meet your goal is critical to whether you lose the weight. But it’s important to support your weight loss goal as well. For most people the television is the answer. They join a weight loss program heavily advertised and follow the commercial directions that lead to failure. Even if you buy the meal plans, you might win the weight loss battle but lose the healthy weight war.

Why? Within 6 months of ending your diet (aka fast), you gain back the weight, and in most cases, gain back even more pounds. Dieting is a trying process that will never end. The failure that occurs is pretty clear “eat this, not that” and you lose — more than the unwanted pounds, you lose the ability to lose the weight. Instead of modifying the food you eat each day, you replace your regular meals with something entirely new that you’re going to quit eating when you reach your weight loss goal.

Instead of dieting, portion control is a more effective way to lose pounds without messing up your body. Set a goal to reduce your portions by two table spoons each meal. Your body will know that you ate less and will reward you by shedding a pound or two. If you don’t reduce the amount of food you eat each day, your body will reward you by adding a pound or two. If you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off, Foodology is a safe bet for successful weight loss!
