For many years I struggled with my weight. I longed for simple things: to lose weight, keep it off, and not deprive myself of delicious food -- I didn’t think it was too much to ask. But each time I saw a glimmer of progress, the weight I managed to lose would always come back as soon as I’d re-enter “real life”, and I’d find myself in a haze of constant energy drain, cravings, and brain fog. And it wasn’t a question of intensity, either -- with each new method, I jumped in the deep end and gave it my all. I counted calories obsessively, cut back on my fat intake, went all-out Atkins, threw out real sugar for artificial sugar, worked out like crazy, popped pills, and bought up the commercial “cleanse” and “detox” kits from the health food stores. Once I even drank nothing but lemon juice, water, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper for 7 days straight. None of it worked. And I was miserable every step of the way. And one day, it hit me. All of these methods just scratch the surface. They offer quick fixes that don’t hold out in the long-term. They treat symptoms instead of the cause. No wonder the weight always came back. At that moment, I knew that I had to go deeper. Soon enough, I developed my own system to reboot my metabolism and regulate my hormones, bringing my whole body into balance. This is how I got to where I am today – eating whatever I want, whenever I want, without blowing up or falling off the wagon. And make no mistake, I don’t live off of pizza and ice cream. I do, however, enjoy my favorite foods and treats when I want to, without a shred of guilt. And I don’t gain weight. As I found out over time, a lot of people have gone down the same road I have when I first started trying to lose weight. And you know what? That’s okay. There are tons of women out there trying to lose weight with the methods below and have no idea that they don’t work at all. But if you understand just a bit of how your body actually reacts to these methods, you soon get to the bottom of why they don’t work.
Here is the truth about why the most popular weight-loss methods are doomed to fail:
