Five Big Dieting Mistakes to Avoid

Five Big Dieting Mistakes to Avoid

1. Fad Diets

If everyone is doing it, it must work, right? WRONG! A lot of crazy ideas go viral on social media. Much of it is designed to fool you and promote the latest fad diets. If the most recent “amazing discovery” in the world of dieting seems too good to be true—it is!

2. Impatience

Once we build up the courage and motivation to try to lose weight, we want it to happen fast. But real weight loss—the kind that lasts—takes time. Don’t be discouraged when diet companies show a BEFORE and AFTER picture that suggests the person lost 50 pounds in mere weeks. You will most likely find “results not typical” printed very small beneath the photo. Also, remember that your weight will fluctuate at first. So, have faith and stick with it!

3. Extremely Low Calories

Sometimes people try extreme calorie restriction—consuming far less calories than the standard daily recommendation. This can be a dangerous mistake. It causes something called Protein Calorie Malnutrition.

Your body will use the protein for calories, not for building and replacing cells. One customer told us he tried this and lost 200 pounds, but then he almost died because his body was taking protein from his heart muscle and his heart wall got very thin.

4. Staying Hungry

A lot of diets leave you hungry because they’re designed according to the notion that calories need to be limited quite a bit—and of course that makes you hungry. Nobody can be hungry day after day, week after week. Being hungry is why diets fail. You cannot stick with them.

5. Skipping Meals

If you skip meals, you reduce calories. So, you inevitably lose weight, right? WRONG! You just get very hungry and eat more later. Eating breakfast, for example, actually helps with weight loss.

The RIGHT Way to Lose Weight

Eat a diet high in protein (at least 90 grams of high-quality protein each day). And start getting more of your calories from protein. Typical American diets get about 10-15% of their calories from protein. The latest medical research says getting 25-30% of calories from protein will prevent hunger, help with weight loss and make you stronger.

How to do that.

Have 3 to 5 servings of UNJURY® per day (depending on your size, and how much you want to lose).

  • Always have a serving for breakfast.
  • Have servings to “crowd out” the bad/empty calories in some snacks.
  • Include UNJURY in lunch or dinner too if you are not getting other low fat protein with those meals (check out our recipes for delicious ideas).

Give it time. Losing weight the healthy way may mean losing 1-2 pounds per week, BUT that can add up to 25 to 50 pounds in just 6 months.
