Because if you want to lose weight and change your life you must change the way you think about dieting. Besides dieting is characterized by a cyclical pattern of repetitious loss and gain of body weight. Some of the ways people choose to do this include skipping meals and consuming very few calories. There is increasing evidence that weight cycling may lead to cardiovascular and metabolic disorders such as hypertension and diabetes. And the risk of complications of weight cycling seems greater in people with normal weight or slightly overweight than in obese people.

8. Forget about walking your butt off
Why? Because losing weight has nothing to do with walking your butt off! Yes, exercise is very healthy. But in my experience, it tends to distract us from more important things, like EATING properly. If you really want to lose weight, first change your eating habits, then take regular exercise. You have to be careful about the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. Most people don’t realize that too much carbohydrate intake can inhibit the metabolization of fats for energy. This is caused by the excess production of insulin to metabolize the sugars. Excess insulin also inhibits the production of the growth hormone and the metabolization of fats for energy. So, fat-free or not, it may still get stored as fat. Without getting too much into nutrition here, just be advised that excess sugars are not the answer to weight loss.
9. Forget about drinking gallons of water
Why? Because losing weight has nothing to do with filling up with liquid. Drink to quench your thirst, not to lose weight!
10. Forget about your past dieting failures
Why? Because the past is dead. Besides, nearly all my most successful slimmers were self-confessed ‘failures’ before they lost weight on WF diet recommendations.
