Diet Mistakes That Women Make

Tips and Advice

Hey, lets face it, most people are on some sort of diet this time of the year, if not most of the year and, most people have their struggles when it comes down to “what” and “how much” to eat.

Generally speaking, men eat too much junk food and drink too much beer but with women, there is so much conflicting “information” available from so called professional sources and the media, (hey, they should know what they’re taking about surely ) that no wonder women struggle with their weight.

Here are some common mistakes to bear in mind………


1) Women Cut Too Many Calories.


If you don’t eat enough, you lose muscle. Worse, if you only do cardio and you cut calories too much, then you lose more muscle and you gain fat.

It’s the Double-Diet-Danger!

Lose muscle and you will SLOW your metabolism making it 10x’s harder for you to lose belly fat, shrink your thighs, and firm-up your arms.

If you are eating 1200 or even 1400 calories per day, that’s NOT enough.

You need to eat more!

By the way, did you ever notice how all those diet spokeswomen NEVER seem to be able to keep the weight off? And worse, they end up BIGGER than before? That’s more proof that big cuts in your calories does NOT work.


2)You Are Addicted to the 1990′s Diet.


Back in the 1990′s so-called diet experts were telling us to avoid fat and eat high-carbohydrate diets.
This, unfortunately has been picked up by the media and medical experts as the healthy way to eat, now though, following independent new medical studies, its been shown to be a fallacy.


The low fat, high carb diet might work for marathon runners but it doesn’t work for fat loss. Worse, the more high-carb foods you eat, the more high-carb foods you crave!

When was the last time you could stop at just one granola bar? Or 1 serving of breakfast cereal (Do you know how SMALL one serving is? It’s not even enough to satisfy a little girl.)

So stop eating snacks out of your purse (I know you’ve done that!) The more low-fat, high-carb foods you eat, the harder it is to lose fat.


3) Women Skip Cheat Meals … But Then Go On Diet-Destroying Binges.


Guys that are trying to lose fat can stick to a program for the week as long as they know they can relax their diet on weekends for a cheat meal.

But too many women try to be perfect all the time, denying themselves, sacrificing all pleasure, until one day, suddenly…BOOM. It’s a Binge!

And it’s not pretty.

The binge turns to sugar addiction. It lasts for days, not just one meal, and soon you’re like one of those TV-celebrity-diet-endorsers that ends up worse off than before they started counting calories and eating-by-points.

That’s bad news.

So plan ahead to enjoy your reward meal and avoid binging.
