Why do you stick to the rules of a mad fad diet?

There is sensible weight loss dieting and then there are mad fad diets. The mainstream diets point you to sensible eating and a pound by pound weight reduction over a long time frame. The other type of mad fad diets say you will lose a lot of weight in a very short period of time.

Are we sure that these special fad diets really work? They claim great things but you must know that they are not based on normal food and ideas. I know this because I have lost 5 stones in a space of just 15 weeks on one of these diets.

I know just why I was so successful and why you should consider looking at this. This is primarily because of set and fixed rules for you to adhere to.

Fad diets have very strict rules that you have to follow. You know exactly what is expected of you. They give you a meal plan that says “this is what you can eat” It is very limited and usually quite boring but you know that if you stick to the diet rules you will lose the weight.

Normal weight loss diets work on the basis of reducing your food intake generally and closely watching what you eat. You are so busy counting points and calories that you do not know quite what you are allowed to eat and when.

You can see that the simplicity of the diet rules help you on this type of program. But of course then the question is can you stick to the diet rules you are given. I maintain that you do need a much stronger will to stick to the rules but because they are so rigid you know you are going to be hungry and expect it. It creates a sort of virtuous circle of thought processes that give you more resolve.

The diet rules are why they are effective. I just like the simple and easy to follow rules of mad fad diets.
