My beef with fad diets

Now, before I get into this, I’m not saying losing weight is easy, it isn’t. With old habits to break and temptation everywhere you go, it can feel like a struggle sometimes. However! There are ways that will make it even harder…in the long run:


I won’t deny that fad-diets can bring results, sometimes quickly, but there are a few things to be aware of here. Firstly, that initial quick drop in weight is water weight, and not fat loss so that’s worth remembering. Secondly, these diets are not sustainable and therefore come to an end, so what happens then? You go back to your old ways and the weight goes back on…sometimes more so. You then feel frustrated and are no better off than you were before, and before long are looking for the next fashionable diet trend to try and so the cycle continues.

The one thing that all of the faddy-diets on the market have in common is they put you into a situation where you are in a calorie deficit, one way or another, usually by heavily restricting and demonising a particular food group. For sustainable weight loss, the only diet you need is your own (along with a regular strength training programme), just with a reduced number of overall calories until you reach your desired goal. You can still eat the foods you like and not send yourself into a pit of despair every time a ‘new revolutionary diet’ comes on the market.

Like I said at the beginning, losing weight isn’t easy, if it was, I would be out of a job. The strategy behind fat loss is simple enough but finding ways in which you can make it work for you, and keep it working long term takes work and that where I come in. Everybody is different and what works for one person won’t work for another. I help each of my clients to achieve weight loss through small changes to their habits that don’t have a huge impact on their overall lifestyle, meaning they:

💥can still enjoy the foods and drinks they like 💥don’t feel like an outcast when socialising with friends and family 💥sleep better 💥stress less 💥feel happier and more confident in themselves
