5 most common non-food items swallowed by pets Anyone with a dog, cat, puppy or kitten will know what inquisitive creatures they are. They will investigate anything and everything they encounter, and that sometimes that involves chewing and swallowing objects they really shouldn’t! Thankfully, most objects our pets choose to swallow are small enough to […]
The average American dieter makes 4-6 dieting attempts per year. Clearly that means the first…and second…and third attempt weren’t successful. It’s a vicious circle of demotivation that leaves many feeling like they cannot succeed without superhuman tenacity.
Maybe you are ready to throw in the (oversized) towel on dieting for good.
Don’t be. Take a minute to look at the four reasons why most diets fail, and then find a diet plan that bypasses these pitfalls. Soon you will find yourself on track to optimal success.
Let’s look at the four key factors.
Unrealistic Calorie Intakes
The “starvation mode” method only sets you up to fail. By consuming so little food, your body literally starts shutting down to conserve fuel.
When this happens, you are on a one-way path to a fat loss plateau. Yes, you should lower calorie intake to see fat loss results, but you need to do it in a way that maintains your “metabolic engine”.
Lack Of Satiety-Boosting Nutrients
Another big issue with most conventional diets is they fail to provide enough of the two most filling nutrients: protein and fiber. You need protein to function optimally. It’s also breaks down slowest, providing the body with lasting satiety.
Couple protein with dietary fiber, found in fresh fruits and vegetables, and digestion will slow even further.
Many crash diet plans are very low in protein. While they recommend lots of vegetables, many discourage the consumption of fruit.
By making these two nutrients a focus of your plan instead, you can see faster, lasting results while actually enjoying your diet meal plan.
Time Consuming Meal Prep
Who has an hour each and every day to meal prep? Not me — and definitely not you. Yet, many diet plans are complicated enough to require this. If that describes your diet, it’s no wonder if you’re failing.
Alternatively, you want to find an approach that gives you basic and easy-to-implement guidelines that help you realize true success with your program.
This plan should not require hours of extra effort each week. In that case, it’s stealing free time that you should use to reward yourself for good behavior. It should work with your lifestyle, not against it. When you find such a plan, it’ll be cake to stick with it.
Chances are you’ve heard that any diet plan you use should follow a long-term approach.
That’s excellent advice.
However, if your diet plan is designed to span months, this can be a motivation killer.
Find a diet with a definite deadline. Two weeks is optimal because that’s how long it takes to form long-term habits. Two weeks is also a long enough to see good results, but not short enough to stay motivated.
Anyone willing to lose weigh can diet for two weeks. This is foundational to The 2 Week Diet. In many, many cases, the initial transformation is so remarkable, it provides abundant motivation for continued fat burning. Success breeds success.

If you’re a woman on a mission to burn fat, there’s a good chance you are making one or two (or more) mistakes along the way. I see it time and time again and yet, few women ever actually crack the weight loss code. It really doesn’t need to be as complicated as it seems. By learning what these mistakes are, you can quickly put them behind you and get on track to seeing better results.
Let’s look at four fat loss mistakes you need to know about.
If 1400 calories is good, 1000 must be better, right? Wrong. Your body needs fuel to burn fat properly. As strange as it may sound, if you cut your calories back too far, your body will just cling onto what fat it does have, making further fat loss feel impossible.
You want to use a moderate calorie deficit, like the guidelines set forth in the 3 Week Diet plan as this will ensure that your metabolism stays revved and you keep burning fat.
Failing To Plan Ahead
Another big mistake many women make is failing to plan ahead. They think about their next meal about an hour before that meal takes place. Often, this is because they’re busy and just don’t have time to do all that cooking.
If you want to see results, however, you need to plan ahead. The trick is using a weight loss program that doesn’t call for overly complex meals that mean you spend hours each day in the kitchen.
No woman can handle that — you have a life to lead. But, with a diet plan that makes planning ahead simple, you will stand a much better chance of sticking with your menu. You should never wonder ‘what to eat’ when hunger hits or you’ll be tempted to eat something you shouldn’t.
Overdoing Cardio Training
If there’s one thing that most women have in common, it’s hours spent on cardio machines. While some smart cardio training (such as sprint training) can be beneficial for fat loss, you really don’t need to chain yourself to the treadmill, bike, or the elliptical. In fact, doing so can do more harm than good.
Instead, what you need is a basic weight training program that focuses on key lifts that make you stronger.
Check out The 3 Week Diet workout program if you need assistance in this area. This program will go over the top calorie burning exercises that will firm and tighten your body while helping you melt fat quickly.
Overcomplicating The Process
Finally, the last big mistake that many women make is overcomplicating their program. They find a diet plan that has a million rules and regulations that they must follow and then wonder why they aren’t sticking with it and it’s not working.
Simplicity is best. With a few smart guidelines that you can easily implement into your life, you can be on track to seeing superior results.
Fat loss isn’t rocket science. It all boils down to fueling your body with the right food choices and amount of energy to encourage the release of energy from body fat cells.
The 3 Week Diet plan will explain how to do this without feeling like you need a Ph.D. in diet lingo.
So keep these mistakes in mind. If you see yourself making any of them, make a few changes and get yourself on track to seeing better results in the future. Click Here for 3 Week Diet Plan!
