Weight Loss is Not the Same as Fat Loss

Diets come in two forms: disguised calorie reduction schemes like Weight Watchers & Slimming World, or food-type based like Atkins. The problem with all of these systems, or plans, is that they focus on entirely the wrong thing. What they focus on is weight loss. What they need to focus on is fat loss. But weight is better for business because you get quick results that convince participants the system works. What this is followed by is a long uphill struggle battling with hunger, cravings, and denial. But that has to be down to you – after all you lost weight in the first two weeks! It couldn’t be down to a flawed system that was designed to hook you in, without ever giving you what you really want – could it?

Weight Loss Is Not About Fighting Hunger

Hunger is not the issue with weight loss. Overweight people ignore feelings of fullness and eat anyway. But it isn’t about will-power either. It’s about our environment and the tricks people play on our minds because they want our money – again, and again, and again. It isn’t your fault if you are overweight – but that doesn’t mean you can’t be slimmer.

A new look at some old data has revealed something alarming. There is a possibility that eating food cooked in non-stick pans, while pregnant, condemns your children to be fat adults by the time they reach their 20’s. This worrying discovery gives credence to what a lot of overweight people suggest – and that is that they don’t overeat. This, of course isn’t the case for everyone – but could it be true for you?
