The Weight Loss Solution

Article by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

There are hundreds, if not thousands, if not millions of diets in the world.  

The hard part is choosing a weight loss plan that meets your specific needs.  

A person seeking to lose ten pounds is going to need a different diet than the person who has diabetes and is need of losing 75 pounds.  Women need a different type diet plan than men to meet their nutritional needs.  

Teens who are overweight need a plan much different than a dieting adult. So while it is great that there are so many diets and weight loss plans to choose from, the hard part is choosing a plan that's right for you.

To add a bit more confusion to the kettle, amid all of these diets and weight loss plans are the fad diets.  Fad diets tend to go out on a limb in determining ways for a dieter to lose weight ultra fast.  Unfortunately, quick weight loss is not always safe weight loss.

Many fad diets incorporate starvation methods while trying to make the dieter feel that all is well.  Most fad diets focus on specific groups of the official food pyramid rather than the entire food pyramid which is necessary for total nutrition.

Fad diets catch on fire amid the Dieting Public because they are unique, they are fun to a degree, and people who go on the diet feel like they are part of the wave.

But from there, things generally go downhill - and unfortunately, it's not the weight that goes down the hill, rather the 'diet motivation' that ignited the diet in the first place.
