It is an unfortunate fact there is no easy way to lose weight. Despite this, all too many of us place our hope in these common diet myths.
They are all completely false – but why?
Sadly, there isn't a magic solution. It's just a simple equation - expend more calories than you consume and you will lose weight. As always it comes back to the simple truth; eat healthily and do some exercise!
I really hate diets, full stop. The word just conjures up failed attempts at ridiculous ideas. Eat well and keep active. That's it.
I feel your pain, Tanya - office diet talk, argh!! Yet mention that repeated dieting might suggest that the diet didn't work and people look at you like you've said you hate Christmas!
Every week in my office someone comes in with ANOTHER FAD they think will help the lose 6lbs a day - it doesn't matter what I say they won't stop flitting from one diet to another, anything to avoid having to exercise!
