QUICK FIX: A short-term diet is bad for your metabolism. Photo: Shutterstock


CHANGING the way you eat should never be a short-term fix.

If you lose it quickly, you’ll put it back on equally as fast, sometimes with interest.  Carb cycling is for life. A long-term plan, designed to fit with all eventualities and you should never ever feel like you are on a ‘diet.’

Carb cycling allows you to eat the food you love, in moderation. If you desperately want a certain meal, snack or treat, simply build it into your week and plan your other meals around it.

Losing weight should be a slow, steady process, which mirrors the length of time you took to put the weight on in the first place. 

A healthy weight loss rate could be as little as 1lb a week. Patience is the key here!

Some people can lose large amounts drastically in the first couple of weeks, but this is generally ‘water weight’ which not everyone will have.

Fad diets can ruin your metabolism for good. Swapping from one diet to the other can have long-lasting effects on your body and you’ll wonder why even tried and tested methods in the past, now don’t work for you any more. This often leads to people practically starving themselves as they feel they have run out of options.

Food supplements, pills, magic coffee…the list goes on and on. The military diet for example which primarily consists of grapefruit, eggs and vanilla ice cream. Who can eat like that forever? Certainly not me!
