Danger! Rapid Weight Loss Diets Can Kill!

If you're tempted by a "Rapid Weight Loss" scheme, hold your horses! Any method of dropping pounds and inches in a very short period of time guarantees you'll lose water and possibly muscle mass. Neither one is good for you. Since you are already about 70% water, leave that alone!

More importantly, losing muscle because your body "cannibalized" it for protein is a recipe for disaster! You'll reduce the amount of fat burning muscle and make it more likely you'll regain all that weight AND THEN SOME, because you won't have as much working muscle to burn fat.

Worst of all, if you're already out of shape, starving yourself or using a gimmick to trick your body into shedding just weight could put you at risk for a whole range of health problems. I'm not a doctor (and I don't play one on television), but I can tell you that people die every year from fooling around with diet scams and dangerous methods of lightening the scale. They don't get rid of the fat, either!

Take the time to plan out a simple, common sense diet and exercise program. Even if you feel helpless when it comes to planning out a routine and diet, by starting now, you can avoid never starting at all.

The Best Way to Lose Body Fat

I can tell you one thing: following a popular diet is not the way to go. 95% of all people on a diet either gain it all back, or actually gain MORE after dieting. Why not do the smart thing and follow the same diet that fitness models and weight trainers follow? If you, like me, really want long term results, and are tired of the diet merry-go-round, imitate the most successful "dieters" in the world!

Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is the best way to achieve exceptional success at losing body fat WITHOUT starving or "cannibalizing" your own muscle mass. These are the secrets that people in the fitness business use every day to maintain a lean, sleek physique. There's no need to "re-invent the wheel", just do what they do!

Think back to the last time you actually took action to change something in your life for the better. It's one thing to think about being slimmer. It's another to  imagine how great it'll feel, say six months from now, to look at the new you in the mirror or see the admiring glances from other people at your new, leaner body. You'll be able to look back and see that the action you took  today  was the start of something you'll enjoy for the rest of your life.

Or, you could just surf off and never come again. It's your body. Give it a fighting chance to live well.

No Hoodia, No Borscht!

There’s a difference between fat burner food and fat burner food supplements. A supplement may be a natural, organic substance, but it isn’t a meal. Food is easy to understand. The hype surrounding supplements and their “fat burner” properties is difficult to understand. The same goes for things like the cabbage soup diet, the grapefruit diet, etc.

It’s one thing to curb your appetite, it’s another to mess with it. By taking an appetite suppressant like Hoodia, or eating cabbage soup, which is an acquired taste outside of Mother Russia, you will curb your appetite. But why would you want to do it this way?

While Hoodia has a great reputation, that’s not the same as FDA approval for safety. Despite the bashing it takes, the Food and Drug Administration has a simple job which it does well: ensure the safety of food and drugs. Yes, you can argue that Hoodia isn’t a drug, it’s natural. Natural does NOT equal safe. Hemlock is natural and will kill you dead. Ask Socrates. Ephedra is natural -- and the scientific proof that people have died from it without warning is growing each day.

As for gulping down gallons of cabbage soup to lose weight, that’s okay if you like it. If you don’t, I strongly suggest you consider another alternative. Instead of looking for ways to trick your body with herbs, supplements, distasteful foods and the like, try working with your body instead. Discover the real fat burner food that works today.

First, the Basics

Fact: 95% of all the people who go on a conventional diet gain back all the weight they lost. Some even end up fatter. They didn’t know that most weight loss diets end up “cannibalizing” their own muscle and slowing down their metabolism. If you’ve ever hit a “plateau” in you diet, that’s what happened. Trying to trick your body into burning body fat without eating fat burner food and working with your metabolism is a recipe for failure.

Many of the people who’ve “hit the wall” when trying to lose body fat turn to drugs or supplements to get past the plateau. Drugs have side effects and “97% of all supplements are a total waste of money”, according to one expert. Trying to fool a metabolic and hormonal system that’s the result of thousands of years of evolution is pointless. You need to work with it, not against it. You can learn to focus on the food you eat, when you eat it and what else is needed.

Simply put, fat burner food burns more calories than it supplies when you digest it. It heats up your body’s furnace (increases your metabolism) so it burns more fuel (calories). In fact, just by drinking ice cold water, you turn up your body’s heat engine and burn calories just to re-warm yourself. I learned that trick years ago, working in a cold environment. Ice cold water will warm you up faster than hot coffee or a shot of brandy!

To jump start any diet, try drinking at least 8 glasses of ice-cold water a day. Your body's own "thermostat" will turn up your furnace to rewarm you and burn calories with no extra effort. No drugs, no supplements -- just ice-cold water!

When you learn which foods burn fat and which foods turn to fat (did you know, one expert claims lettuce is fattening!), losing body fat becomes easy and effortless. All you have to do is stick to your plan, do regular cardio exercise and get the right amount of sleep. Your body will take care of the rest!
