How can you tell a genuine Diet product from a hyped-up one that is big on promises but lacking in substance? Will the Diet system you are considering give you the means to lose the weight that you are so determined to get rid of?
I am going to give you 3 points that will enable you to spot a genuine Diet system from an impractical hyped-up one.
1. Excess weight is an emotive subject and we all want to get rid of it as fast as possible - but realism should also come into the equation! Rapid weight-loss can be achieved using certain diets - no doubt about that, but surely, what should be more to the point is this: will a rapid loss of weight remain 'off' - or will it return to haunt you within weeks or even days of losing it as it goes back 'on!?'
Weight loss should always be approached as a permanent goal and not a temporary one. OK, there may be exceptional circumstances - for example, 2 weeks before you get married! - or even for serious health reasons, but apart from 'crisis' situations such as these, permanent weight-loss must be regarded as the long-term remedy to your problem.
A good Diet system should have everything in place for you to succeed with long-term and permanent weight loss. There should be no hype, and nothing should be promised that cannot be fulfilled.
2. We all love our food, and of course this is half the problem in the first place! But bearing that in mind, does the Diet system you are considering provide for a 'balanced' approach to dieting? You could choose to live on porridge and vegetables indefinitely, and of course you would lose weight rapidly on that diet - but who wants to go down that route?
Better to have a diet that does not make you feel as if you are on a diet. A diet that lets you have a certain amount of 'what you like' to make life worth living! - but at the same time allow you to make the necessary adjustments that must take place in order to achieve the object of the exercise - the permanent reduction of excess weight.
A good Diet system should fulfill its purpose by setting an eating programme that is enjoyable, sustainable and varied for the dieter, and yet achieves the required weight-loss at the same time.
3. The Diet system you are looking at should offer a full money-back guarantee if you are dissatisfied, as well as a manned help-desk to answer any queries you may have about the system. Does what you are considering offer a 30 day or a 60 day refund period? A longer 60 day refund would indicate a strong belief in the product by the manufacturer.
I hope this information has been of benefit to you.
