- The Truth about “Diet products” a Devil in disguise!
Myth: Eat “Diet products” to lose weight Fat)
Truth: “Diet Products” are an ingenious invention by food Manufacturers to get your money and keep you coming back for more!
The Companies have taken a very recognizable and harmless word Diet (translation) : To Feed, The usual Food or Drink of a person; and turned it into a cash cow to benefit their bottom line!
The Truth is that anything ‘Labeled’ as “Diet Product” has been heavily processed to create the illusion that you are consuming less “calories”, which would lead to weight loss….Right???
Diet products are generally products labeled “FAT free- light ” or “Sugar Free- low Sugar” ( e.g. Diet Soda, Light peanut butter…). These modified products contain chemicals far more damaging (to both; your fat loss goals and to your long term Health) than the “ natural” product that may be higher in Fat or sugar content.
These chemicals, stabilizers, preservatives, coloring agents and “Natural aroma” (would love to know what that really is? And why do they need to add it? If it’s so natural…shouldn’t it already be in the product???!!!!)
Research has shown that these products, not only devastate our digestive capacity but also damage our metabolism and contribute to food dependence (addiction!) amongst many other negative effects.

The kind of Sugar consumed in the form of: sugary beverages+ juices, baked goods, candy and chocolate bars (even some nutritional bars!!), Soda drinks and Alcoholic beverages, just to name a few; can do unimaginable damage to our Bodies (e.g. Altered Metabolism, Metabolic Syndrome….which leads to all other sorts of diseases!)

Myth: They are a great Trick for Weight-Fat loss
Truth: There are NO TRICKS when it comes to safe, permanent weight- Fat loss….only Knowledge (know How) and self Control can have the optimal effect!
We have had to endure decades of Fad Diet B#*S, but in today’s world all you need is to arm yourself with Knowledge about how Food affects your Body and what YOUR Body needs to be on its way to your ultimate Health and Fitness goals!
Of course, there are some Diets that are of the ages ( South Beach, Dash….) and considered “a better choice”. Unfortunately there is no such thing as ONE Diet for all of us! We all have our own individual Diet needs ( depending on physical make-up, Lifestyle, activity level, gender ).
Fad Diets are all about food-type elimination ( e.g. Fruit, grains….), deprivation (excessive calorie restriction) and are absolutely unrealistic for long term use + create the detrimental “jojo effect”
Naturally some Diets (e.g. Mediterranean Diet …) can be used as general guide line for what works best.

Myth: They should be eliminated from the Diet, if Goal is Weight-Fat Loss
Truth: This is the # 1 misconception when it come to Weight- fat loss
Carbohydrates, generally referred to as “Carb’s” are an absolutely necessary food group; not only for Fat Loss but also for maintenance of Health & Vitality!
There are several different sorts of Carbohydrates:
- 1st Category: Complex carbohydrates (Fiber, starch, glycogen): Whole grains, legumes, vegetables, meat & Sea food…
- 2nd Category: Simple Carbohydrates ( Fruit, Honey…)
- 3rd Category: Modified /processed Carbohydrates
The first two categories must be a part of a Nutritionally sound Diet in proper proportion (yes, even the simple kind!). The last category is best eliminated or consumed in extreme moderation.
