The problem with your diet is that it ignores exercise


The problem with your diet is that it ignores exercise
Lincoln Journal Star

Sure, you may lose 5, 10 or even 20 pounds on a fad diet...but you'll gain it all back and then some. How can I be so confident that your results will be short-lived? It's actually a simple concept, and once you understand it you will be forever saved from the tortures of yo-yo dieting.Fad diets saddle you with unreasonable calorie restrictions; some cut out entire food groups just to produce that short-lived drop in weight-a process that is actually harmful to your health.
