Christmas is only a couple of weeks away and research shows the search for diet recipes increases in December and more than doubles in January.
Christmas dinner, office parties etc etc should be something you should look forward to and enjoy without the guilt of ‘I shouldn’t have’, or the turn to Google to search for diet recipies and subsequent cabbage soup or other crash diets in the new year.
Many people say they have a slow metabolism but do not realize that the dieting habits they believe help them may actually be causing a slow metabolic rate problem and result in slower weight loss.
When considering starting a diet many people are tempted to ‘crash diet’, cutting down on everything they consider to be bad to the absolute basics, seriously restricting calorie intake.
Calorie counting has been around for a long time and many weight loss programs state their diet ‘will only help as part of a calorie controlled diet’. These few words are often overlooked, they blend into the background while the larger weight loss claims grab your attention, however without the inclusion of a calorie controlled diet the success of the latest new super diet is often compromised.
