Anything that is short-term and unsustainable, in other words, anything that doesn’t instil new and long-lasting habits in your food intake, is both a fad and counterproductive to your long-term success.
If you can’t incorporate and apply what you do (in this case your diet) into the real world around you, then surely it is of no use at all.
The majority of the calories you burn each day are determined by your resting metabolic rate (RMR).
RMR is largely a function of how much muscle you have on your frame, and how hard that muscle is made to work. Therefore adding activities that promote or maintain muscle mass will make your body work harder and elevate your metabolism. Weight training is the single best form of exercise for achieving these goals.
Just as a lack of goals will derail you, being overly focused on goals to the detriment of everything around you will have the same effect.
A setback (a missed goal on the weighing scales, a lapse in our healthy eating plan) is just a temporary, fleeting thing, and that we have tomorrow to get back on track.
If you are 50lbs overweight and give yourself five weeks to get ripped abs or tight buns, you are quite simply setting yourself up for failure.
This body is achievable, it isn't going to happen overnight, but if you set yourself a goal and motivate yourself it is achievable.
Behind every successful person is a positive and reinforcing social structure.
Surround yourself with positive, reinforcing characters who want you to succeed and buy into your long-term happiness and fulfillment.
Fruit juices (the worst and most common culprit), excessive salad dressings, ketchup, and full fat (or even semi-skimmed) milk in tea/coffee are all to be avoided by the prudent dieter seeking healthy and sustainable fat loss.
Vague goals can scupper your motivation and progress, so too can the lack of clear and precise goals.
Draw up a plan of where you want to go, and how you are going to get there step by step.
It takes discipline and strength of character to effect a fundamental change in any of our ingrained habits, but once the momentum has been created, and the sense of satisfaction and well-being becomes your constant companion, you can do it.
Many people lack even the basic ability to distinguish between a carbohydrate and a protein.
Read some books, or consult a professional – better yet, do both.
It reflects our desire for instant gratification and the all too human reluctance to be patient.
Drastically reduced calorific intake shunts the body into 'starvation mode'. This effectively slows down metabolism and causes you to convert almost everything that you consume into energy-storing fat cells in case you encounter “famine” conditions again, and your body needs something to feed off.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
