Let’s face it. We’ve all failed on a diet before. Most of us more than once. So it’s no surprise that millions just plain give up trying every year.
And trust me, I get it. Why bother to try to lose weight when all the effort just ends up making you feel like a failure?
But I’ve got some motivation that might have you feeling like giving it the old college try one last time. Because new research reveals the REAL reason, so many people struggle to lose weight.
And before we go any further, let’s make one thing perfectly clear. Being overweight is not your fault. Your so-called “lack of willpower” isn’t even to blame. And you’re absolutely right when you insist you aren’t overeating all the time.
Researchers say something else entirely is behind obesity. And the good news is once you know what it is, you can overcome it.
Best of all is once you understand this single diet secret, you can finally shed those extra pounds without…
- eating less
- giving up all your favorite foods
- fighting back against a growly unsatisfied stomach
And it all starts by ignoring everything the conventional experts INSIST is the “right way” to diet and lose weight.
Mainstream diet advice is making you fat
The most frustrating part of any diet experience isn’t the diet itself. It’s when you’ve starved and suffered for WEEKS on end, only to step on the scale and get a virtual slap in the face.
Because despite all that work, the numbers barely budged.
But new expert commentary published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals why the standard diet model has repeatedly failed so many people. And it’s because the driving force behind obesity has never been about how many calories you eat.
The fact is merely counting calories and cutting back on them to the point you feel weak and exhausted won’t deliver much dieting success in the end. The REAL issue is what those calories are made of.
For years the low-fat diet has been pushed by the mainstream. The focus is always on slashing fats and reducing calories. As a result, the modern Western diet has ended up being high in carbohydrates and added sugars. In fact, you’ll find even many so-called “healthy” or “diet” foods are loaded with both when you check the labels.
In other words, when you follow the mainstream’s dieting advice, you’re chances of being overweight or obese shoot through the roof.
To lose weight cut the carbs
You see, when your body is presented with boatloads of junk carbs and added sugars to digest, it alters your metabolism. That sets off a cascade of events that can lead to packing on the pounds.
First of all, in a vain attempt to keep up with the increased demand, your pancreas starts cranking out extra insulin. This, in turn, sends signals to your fat cells to switch into storage mode. So those cells start squirreling away calories.
That alone can have consequences for your waistline, leading to more than a few inches to pinch. But the trouble doesn’t end there.
Because meanwhile, with fewer circulating calories available to fuel your muscles, your brain evaluates the situation and decides you must need more fuel. So your body starts pumping out ghrelin, the hunger hormone, to stimulate your appetite and promote even more fat storage.
Now you start feeling legitimate hunger pangs. So you begin nibbling to satisfy the gnawing hunger. And, of course, you end up eating even more junk carbs and added sugars, so the cycle keeps going.
As a result, you not only gain weight. You also, eventually, may face obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and more.
But there is a way to break the cycle. You don’t have to count calories. There’s no going hungry. And you won’t have to buy a video series, attend a meeting, eat special frozen meals, or swallow any pills.
The key is something I’ve shared with you before. And that is to get back to basics.
Go ahead and quit as many processed foods as possible. Keep your overall carb count low and limit them to just healthier carbohydrates. Make those simple changes, and weight loss will soon follow.
Plus, going low carb has plenty of other proven health benefits too, even for seniors. Check out my report from last year—Low carb sends health risks PLUMMETING in seniors—for more details.
