Dieting

Recommended Posts

There are so many ways to lose weight. I don't really recommend dieting, because if not done properly it can cause health issues. You should always ask advice from your dietician or doctor, before starting any diets. Just regular exercising and healthy and balanced eating is good enough, if you don`t have any major health problems. Running is completely free as well. The good feeling you get afterwards is the best.

I think I'm going to have to disagree. "Regular exercise and a healthy, balanced diet" just won't cut it for a lot of people. That's because, regular exercise and just a "healthy, balanced" diet, does not leave any room for cheat-days, or any cheating for that matter. And what I've found to be very interesting is that, unless I treat myself with something unhealthy every now and then, I completely lose all my motivation to actually go to the gym. And that's not all, when I have a treat, it actually makes me stronger, wanting to work harder just so that I can burn those extra calories from that treat. 

My point is that, most people need to have an extreme diet, just so that they can eat a couple of donuts on the weekend so that they do not lose the motivation to continue working onto their goals.

I personally hate the word “diet”. I always feel extreme pressure when uttering the word. To me, it means counting calories, eating lots of lettuce and omitting chocolate from my life.

I believe you need to commit to a permanent lifestyle change. Eat clean, exercise more and have a positive attitude. Once you get used to that lifestyle the pounds will come off.

I find your word choice interesting saying that you would not recommend dieting but then also saying that there are many ways to lose weight. In America, at least, I feel that dieting and losing weight go together. However, sometimes just "eating a balanced diet" doesn't work. I am mainly a vegetarian. I also eat far worse than I did when I ate meat. (I also weigh more--and this is walking five miles a day.) Many people, I imagine, myself included, would benefit greatly from the strictness and formality that comes from a word--diet--if it means that we get back on track for eating healthy.

There's always risk involved with anything and while you should mitigate unnecessary risk.I think dieting isn't risky enough to not attempt it, I mean think about it people have fasted for religious reasons for centuries without many incidents of problems. In fact there even appears to be many health benefits to going without eating.
