Diets do not work. Explore the research. There are no magic pills, potions, patches, or pads. Fad diets are scams.
Some diets do work, some don't, they work for some people, and not others. Life is like that.
Diets do not work. I am a former diet technician. That's the problem. The media says dieting works and the diet companies get richer and richer. Dieting works for no one. That;s the point. I encourage you to read more on the topic and get the proven facts.
Um, a diet is any nutritional plan designed to reduce weight--sometimes with associated lifestyle changes. They work all the time, one worked for me. And I am a current behavioral psychologist, so there is no need to assume i am ignorant just because I disagree with you.
Dieting is all about calorie count.
Calorie counting or managing does work. It takes a focused effort to concentrate on losing the weight and sticking to a regiment.
Sticking your fingers into something that is not on the menu, and over-indulging on it, is where many people go wrong.
An exercise regiment should also be involved, something to get the cardio pumping within your body. You burn fat when cardio workout is used.
Plain and simple. Diets- the ideology behind the word works. It is how it is implemented and the duration, that which determines the outcome.
Diets are not the way to go. It is all about eating healthy and maintaining a healty life style. If you go on a diet and lose the weight, what happens after you stop the diet? You once again eat the way you were before and then gain weight. Your best bet is to eat the right foods, all the time.
I don't diet. I was thin but then I started training and ate a chocolate bar after each session with an iced coffee. No fun being thin.
I diet for so many years, losing 3-5 kgs and regaining them as soon as i stopped dieting. Finally i stopped. A healthy natural vegetable full diet is the best option, with occasional treats and no calorie counting. One thing i do is to drink a lot of water, green tea and fresh juices. Taking a spoon of coconut oil before meals helps me feel full and boosts my metabolism amd actually helps lose weight. When combined with vigorous regular exercise, it works so well!
Of course diets work. You can't give up but you are correct there are no magic potions or pills. Diets take effort, will and work differently for everyone because our body's are different. The concept is quite simple for most, you eat less than you expend. Some people have an extremely hard time following through and thats ok but you need to keep on trying unless you truly are happy with where your at than don't worry about it.
It's like anything you really want in life you have to work at it, some harder than others. Some people simply have really bad habits that they need to decide to break and until they do the "diet" won't work. I do realize there are medications and health problems that affect everything but most don't have those issues just really bad habits.

In the last few years, low carb diets seem to have become the "go-to" diet, especially for those looking to lose weight quickly. I'm thinking of reducing my carbs a little, but for me it's not a huge change - I simply want to try to eat more whole grains and pulses and introduce some more...

Would you use the K-E Diet that is also called the feeding tube diet?I'm researching this diet to write a hub and wondered how many people would pay $1499 to feed themselves through a tube for 10 days to lose 10 to 20 pounds. It isn't a diet that I would considered using myself even if it...
