Why do so many people who have dieted in the past gain what they lost back (plus some)? Because diets don’t address the real reasons we are overweight. In order to enjoy long-term success, a new healthy lifestyle, and a better future you have to overcome those mental roadblocks as well as the physical ones. But it’s not enough to have a goal in mind. You have to constantly check yourself to ensure you’re not undermining your own success.
Specifically, you have to stop letting your past haunt you.
That can seem like an insurmountable obstacle. Our past is, by definition, what defines us. So how can we overcome it?
Naturopathic doctors and holistic nutritionists have understood the benefits of natural detox diets for years. They’ve been using these cleansing “rituals” to clear patients’ bodies of excess weight and accumulated toxins for centuries. Similar to fasting diets, these natural detox diets limit what an individual can eat or drink for a period of a day or more, allowing the body to process out (or purge):
You’ve no doubt heard about juice cleanses before. Simply drink juice and lose weight! It’s an alluring option for folks who have struggled with traditional diets and want to drop pounds quickly. But if you’ve never done a juice cleanse you likely have questions: are they healthy? Can I eat anything while I’m juicing? What types of juice should I drink? Do I have to juice my own fruits and veggies? What is the best juice cleanse?
Occasional fasting diets have become extremely popular in recent years. They deliver amazing weight loss results quickly and have a host of incredible health benefits associated with them. Many people believe that occasional fasting can train your body to use nutrients more efficiently, help avoid Type 2 diabetes, decrease the risk of heart disease and more.
Are you more interested in living a healthy lifestyle than simply losing weight? If so, you’re not alone. More and more people are making personal health a priority and tossing traditional dieting tactics to the curb.
The nutrition facts panel on the foods you buy may say 100 calories per serving, but if you are eating more than one serving you could easily double or triple your calorie intake without realizing it. If you are not measuring your cereal, weighing your salmon fillet, or counting your chips, you are probably not eating the suggested serving size. All those uncounted calories could be sabotaging your weight loss efforts. Here’s how to make the numbers work for you!
The decision you made to lose weight was a very personal one. But there are thousands of people out there who have made that exact same resolution. And though everyone’s journey is unique, the Hollywood Diet® line of products can help everyone reach their goal!
While the Hollywood 24-Hour and 48-Hour Miracle Diet® products have helped thousands of individuals lose weight, feel better, and live healthier lives, any lifestyle change can be difficult. It’s a major psychological shift that takes effort to maintain. By preparing yourself for the challenge and being ready and able to overcome the obstacles that will inevitably pop up, you will be able to make the most of the Hollywood Diet® and be better for it.
Recent laboratory and real-world studies have shown that when we eat may have a significant effect on our metabolism, our overall weight, and our ability to lose those unwanted pounds. Not only that, it can play a significant role in predicting future disease and disability. But you still have to keep that calorie count in mind if you want to lose weight. Look for fasting diet plans that incorporate both methods.
Intermittent Fasting is not a new concept. Many cultures around the world have been fasting to demonstrate piety during holy days for centuries. However, fasting as a form of weight loss has often been saddled with a bad reputation. Many opponents say (often without scientific basis) that fasting is bad for you, that it depletes the body of necessary nutrients, and that it can destroy muscle mass in as little as 12 hours.
When you use a fasting diet such as that recommended by The Hollywood 24 or 48 Hour Miracle Diets®, you’re consuming fewer calories over a prolonged period. This will automatically result in weight loss, but the effect on your body chemistry will help jump start fat burning! By giving your pancreas a rest, you’ll boost the effectiveness of existing insulin which means you’ll produce less, it will work better, and you won’t have excess levels of it floating around in your bloodstream.
Don’t believe everything you see on T.V. (and certainly not everything you read on the Internet). These “new” fasting diets that everyone is talking about –The Fast Diet, the 5:2 Diet, and seemingly endless variations of alternate-day or intermittent fasting “IF” diets – aren’t really “new” at all! They’re built on research that has been around for decades … research that helped launch the Hollywood Miracle Diet® more than 16 years ago!
All of these other diets are cashing in on what we already knew!
