Are you worried about your larger-than-average belly? There’s a lot more at stake, than just having a better appearance. Yes, most people concentrate on the improvement in appearance that losing fat gives you. People look down on fat people. But what most people do not know is that belly fat is particularly deadly! Fat in the stomach area causes the most deadly health problems. Not to mention reduced mental, physical and sexual performance.

Many people jump into the “No Carbs” diet, thinking that it is the fastest way to drop the pounds. Successful diet plans concentrate on maintaining good nutrition, rather than cutting out essential nutrients. No extreme diet can be maintained for the rest of your life!

Missing a meal only slows your metabolism and so, makes you retain body fat. Thus, it is better if you eat 5-6 small meals per day, which will burn more fat that eating 2-3 big meals. Also, try not to eat anything close to bedtime, because most of those calories will be stored as body fat.

A good diet plan will provide you with healthy dietary guidelines. For instance, substituting healthy whole grains for the more common over-processed foods. To read more about this, take a look at: How To Get Off Those Stubborn Extra Pounds.

And then there is exercise, which will increase your rate of fat loss even though most people would rather not do it. Fortunately, you don’t need to do that much, because even small regular amounts will benefit you.

We all know that we spend too much time sitting in our offices, so working out is a good way to compensate for our lack of healthy activity. And if you can make the exercise intense, then 20 minute sessions will be sufficient. This will definitely compliment your diet and help in losing the weight.

More than anything else, finding a good fit between you and the diet system you use, cuts the time you have to diet to a bare minimum. But there are so many diet plans being promoted, it can be tough to find the right one. Very few of them actually work, and work well enough to keep the weight off long-term. You have to find the plan that fits your specific situation best, and will lead to lifelong healthy eating habits. For a more full explanation, read this article: Slim Fast Reviews.

Slim Fast Diet Plan – Does It Work?

Specification of Subject Scope: This blog presents information on the Slim Fast diet plan, including a comprehensive presentation on whether it will work for you. For information on related topics, you should choose from the list of additional sources, below.

Slim Fast Diet Plan: A brief history of Slim Fast.

Does Slim Fast really work? It’s most positive aspect, is the ease with which the diet can be done. You are allowed to select the one (or two) meals per day, in which you substitute their product for your meal. It is easy to simply gobble down a shake or bar, rather than having to sit down to a full meal.

On the other hand, there are many problems reported by people trying this diet. Hunger pangs are a constant burden on this diet plan.

Also, they don’t like the taste of the shakes and bars. In effect, you end up spending most of your meals, consuming “sugary milk”. Unfortunately, this causes you to constantly think about the real food you are not being allowed to eat.

And of course, there is the embarrassment factor – since everyone will know you’re on a diet, the moment you take a shake/bar out to eat.

Today’s Slim Fast diet plan has grown to 4 connected steps.

1) The “Replace” section is the most obvious. This means substituting a Slim Fast item for a meal or two.

2) Next is the “Combine” step. However, the amount of normal food you can use for this, is severely limited.

3) The “Dine” section of the Slim Fast diet plan involves using their “Portion Size Guide” to restrict the amount of food you can eat during your regular meals. Note that the amount of calories allowed for these regular meals, is very limited.

4) “Snack” is the last part of the process. For this, you get to have a rare snack, as you try to defeat the frequent hungry feelings you will have using this system.

So while the Slim Fast diet plan does work in the short run, fails in the long run. You spend a lot of money purchasing temporary fat loss – only to find that it all comes back after you’re done! For more details, see “Supplementary Resources” above.

Jenny Craig Cost – Is It Really That Expensive?

Among the many diet systems out there, the Jenny Craig cost makes it one of the most expensive. But it is also one of the most popular. And many (though not all) former members, say it works. So how do you weigh the high price, versus what you get?

The first thing to notice is that you cannot determine the Jenny Craig cost by visiting their website or obtaining their initial promotional brochures. Most likely, this is due to the fact that if you knew the real cost of their system upfront – you would be scared away!

The truth is, the Jenny Craig diet is not something you do casually, nor easily. It requires considerable time and effort. You have to visit one of their branches, then get “interviewed” by one of their “consultants”. Then you have to make a decision as to which one of their many plans you choose to be on. Then you have to choose a particular meal plan to follow.

All of this comes with its own Jenny Craig costs, of course. There is the initial fee. Then there is the membership fee. Then there are additional and supplementary fees, depending upon the pathway you choose to navigate through the Jenny Craig maze.

But the real Jenny Craig cost? The food!

The key element of Jenny Craig’s marketing strategy is that you must buy the essential, pre-packaged meals, from them. Based upon estimates by former Jenny Craig members, the cost of these meals ranges from $120 to almost $200 per week! You can read more details about this at Jenny Craig Food.

However, in addition to all those prepared meals, the plan requires that you must also purchase additional foods from the grocery store. (These are mostly fruit, vegetables and possibly, some other fresh foods.) So this too, adds to the true Jenny Craig cost.

All totaled, yes, you are looking at several thousands of dollars over the duration of your Jenny Craig weight loss plan.

You would think for this incredibly high cost, that the Jenny Craig food would contain some sort of magical mix of ingredients, that help accelerate your weight loss. Strangely enough though, these packaged meals are nothing more than normal food, with a bit less fat and carbohydrates than most people would typically eat. And of course, the serving sizes are very small – just enough to keep you from starving. (You can read more on how to use normal food to lose weight at How To Lose Weight Naturally.)

As you can see, the extremely high Jenny Craig cost is definitely an obstacle that stops most people from purchasing the program. While the program does indeed work, it is difficult for many of those trying desperately to lose weight, to “stomach” the costs.
