Fad Diet: a diet that promises quick weight loss with minimal effort or no
Types of Fad Diets:
Low Carb/ High Fat Diets
High Protein Diets
And that’s just to name a few.
These types of diets are DESIGNED TO FAIL. You heard me, these diets are
designed to fail you. Why? Because unfortunately someone somewhere decided to make a program that yes, would give you results but that would only last for a certain amount of time to keep you coming back. They created the programs so that you would keep spending the money.
Now let me clarify;
These diets will work…for a time, but they are not
something that is sustainable. They are only meant to be used for a certain time. Once the weight comes off and you are finished the diet regime, and you return back to your normal eating habits, you will slide backwards, which will result in gaining back the weight and potentially more.
Some words of advice when it comes to identifying fad diets:
The major problem with all these fad diets is that most people who buy into the glamour end up yo-yo dieting, that is jumping from one diet to the next. This is incredibly hard on your body (and your budget). Constant dieting can lead to metabolic damage, eating disorders, weight gain, excessive fatigue, they can damage hormone production, dehydration, micro nutrient deficiencies and so much more.
I have said it before and I will keep saying it. A diet is not a healthy way to approach food or weight-loss. A diet is not Nutrition. There is no cookie cutter, quick fix plan out there that will give you the long lasting results that balanced nutrition and exercise will give you.
If you are looking for guidance please approach Candace or myself. We would be more than happy to help you navigate your personal nutrition goals.

This workout is a bit more advanced but you can dial it back by spreading it out throughout the day. We call this one, the 100’s. Complete 100 reps of each exercise.
All to often we get wrapped up in the babble and forced ideals of social media, movies, magazines, and music. It encourages us to squish ourselves into the perfect cookie cutter mold. What we forget is that we aren’t meant to be all alike, we were created to be different. Each person is like a snowflake, no two are alike.
One of the best ways to help get yourself set on the right track for the new year is to set yourself some goals. More specifically you should try and set yourself some SMART goals. Now this may sound a tad cheesy, but this acronym is a good way to really get your mind focused in on what it is you are trying to achieve.
