Looking for fast ways to lose weight is all to well known for the average overweight guy. We spend so much time looking for that magic pill – whether it is a diet, an exercise plan, or an actual pill. If only we used the right kind of program it would all be easy.
But the truth is it takes a lot of work and a system.
A diet, as I use in this post, is something that last for a short time, usually producing fast weight loss, with extreme effort and focus with the advantage of a very high drive. however, diets are something you can’t keep for ever, either because it is just way too boring, too impractical or plain dangerous.
Diet systems on the other hand are long term goals. They produce slower weight loss but it is durable. They consist of a system you can repeat day after day for the rest of your life. They are easy and though they don’t produce fast results people tend to stick with them for the long run.
Which is better to lose weight? Well it depends.
If you want long-lasting weight loss and something that is healthy go for a diet system. If what you want is to lose weight for a specific date, diets and the various fast ways to lose weight are better, especially if that date is a short time away.
Just be sure that after your diet you adopt a healthy diet system – most likely you will gain some weight back, but then you will gradually start losing weight again and at least for that important event you will be the weight you wish.
What does a diet look like? Basically anything that restricts the foods you are allowed and that gives you a strict sechedule or calorie counting of some kind. Another example would be to eat watever you want as long as you don’t touch high carb foods, to count the calories in every meal, or to only eat pineapple for a day every three days.
A diet system is more like a standard “diet”. For instance, avoid but not eliminate simple carbs, increase the amount of saldad you eat, make sure half your dish is green, and then one quarter meat or other protein souce and the other half rice, potatoes, or other carb.
You can find diets and other fast ways to lose weight all over the internet. Just pick one and try it to see if it works for you. Keep in mind that most are for women, so you may need to eat a bit more, because men have a higher metabolic rate and need more calories to stay alive.
When it comes to a diet system you need to build one yourself or build one with the aid of a nutritionist. A diet system is designed exclusively for you, taking in account your preferences, the food you have available, the culture you live in, how much or little you like spending time in the kitchen, how keen you are on carrying snacks…
It is just like buying a car. If someone asked you what is the best car you would have to answer that it depends on what they want to do with it – where they will be driving, how long, how many seats they need… It is the same with a diet system – it depends on you.
Now you know that in my opinion neither diet nor diet system is better.
Each has its place and time so you now need to decide which you want and then pick one and stick to it. Design your diet system or choose one diet from the many in the Internet.
If you don’t think you know enough to design a diet system just yet, do small changes as you discover the information and you will be far more likely to stick to it and lose fat than people who just jump right into a diet system they didn’t took the time to adapt to.
