Diets - Short term gain long term pain

What happens
First you substitute real food for things like soups, lemon powder drinks, smaller portions and whatever else it might be. Next you lose weight because your intake of food is less than the amount you expend. Tick it works. 

What the body does next
Next the body realizes that it's not getting enough of the macro nutrients in many cases or simply needs to store the energy better because it's getting less fuel or food. This typically known as slowing of your metabolism.

Now you are sick of lemon, soup and just want real food. Or you deckon diet tells you to move to normal eating again. Now you consume more food with a slow metabolism. This increase in fuel with your decreased metabolism speed winds you up with greater fat storage and you end up as big and if not bigger than before you tried last time.

What next
Try a new diet... No
Meat and vegetables, fish and eggs, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. And train smarter, trainer harder!!
