The Failures Of Fast Tracking Fat Loss
Short-Term fix vs Long-Term solution
We hear about a new fad diet almost every week which sweeps its way across social media, magazines, news articles, and television, and regardless of whether we’re fresh into fitness or have been in the game for a long time, our unsuspecting minds are often baited into the empty promises it offers. Fad diets promise an exciting short-term fix like “6 weeks to a 6 pack!”, on the other hand, we have a longer-term solution which seems tedious because it takes longer. But let's take a closer look at the pros and the cons of the two approaches.
A long-term solution may take longer and seem less promising at the time, but the results will last! Whereas a short-term fix may allow you to achieve a result in a short time frame, but it’s not optimal and not sustainable and you’ll fall into a cycle of weight gain and loss, with no overall progress to show, ending up in frustration!
Say NO to a short-term fix aka FAD DIET!
For as long as fitness has been in the spotlight, the majority of us have wanted to get maximum results without actually doing any hard work, and it is for this reason that these diets exist and there are consumers that buy into it. The truth is, that they probably do work (to a degree)… BUT… and there is a big but, the results, much like the promises they presented, are empty!
Of course, if you starve yourself and commit to only eating bananas every day for a month you’re going to lose weight (unless you are eating a shit load of banana’s), it’s simply a matter of a measly amount of calories in vs calories out.
However, the problem presented by an extremely high percentage of these diets is that they simply are NOT sustainable and are only a SHORT TERM fix, not to mention the negative impacts on your body they may have both mentally and physically.
A diet is exactly that...
“A systemised and temporary change in one’s eating habits that is effective for only a short period of time”
This is why at Flex Success we employ lifestyle changes to see LONG-TERM and lifelong results!
We educate our clients on the equilibrium between nutrition and exercise in such a way that they are able to UNDERSTAND their newfound knowledge, not re-iterating complex jargon or “broscience”, and continue to achieve their goals long after our clients move on from Flex Success.
To put it simply, flexible dieting is something everyone can employ regardless of current lifestyle and commitments, and coupling that with a change of routine which steers away from the mentality that “one must diet to achieve their goals” is THE WINNING COMBINATION every damn time!
Diet Smart. Not Hard.
