The Easiest Way To Lose Weight - The Scientific Facts
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you fed up of diets that are a real chore and almost impossible to stick to? If you are like everybody else you probably stop the diet early or put the weight back on straight after. That was me for eighteen years of my life.

I tried hundreds of diets. I was so fed up that I decided to investigate for my self what the easiest way to lose weight is. I found out that the easiest way to lose weight has been staring us in the face all the time.

I researched through many websites, books, and scientific studies. They all said the same thing. They said that the easiest way to lose weight is just to eat for good health. This was all backed up by hundreds of scientific studies.

Studies throughout the nineteen seventies, eighties, nineties and right up to two thousand and ten all said that diets don't work and that eating for good health was the best way.

What was even more shocking was that these studies showed that diets actually make people fatter. Yes, information collected from over 31 studies involving more than 20,000 people said that diets actually end up making people gain weight in the long term. They also said that diets just create more problems for people than they actually solve. Like eating disorders and other emotional problems.

I have to say I was pretty stunned in a way. I almost didn't believe it at first because all the information we are given in papers and magazines and on the TV say that dieting is the easiest way to lose weight. It was a bit of a shock. How come the media is so full of diets if scientific data over forty years all concludes that diets don't work? All these studies involving over 20,000 participants said that eating for good health is the easiest way to lose weight efficiently and to keep it off?

I guess money is the answer. The diet industry has come up with all of these silly cures that have nothing to do with health. Teas, coffees, cabbage soup diets, pills, potions, reduced calorie regimes and many more. If they just told you to eat for good health none of us would be buying their products. This would in fact lose them billions of dollars. And saved me a bunch too ;-).

After reading all of this I started to eat for good health and the weight has come off and stayed off. Yes I did a little exercise. That was highlighted in the studies too. The people most successful in long term weight loss did some exercise. Don't worry I just go for a walk every day. Forget the gym. I found out in my research that going to the gym has the same terrible success rate as diets. People find going to the gym too hard. (money again being the reason for false information).

Anyway, the point is the easiest way to lose weight is just to eat for good health. Forty years of scientific study has told us this. I am sorry if it is the age old boring advice you may have heard a hundred times. Just eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, ditch processed foods, eat lean meat and stay away from refined carbohydrates like pasta, rice, bread and potatoes. That is the easiest way to lose weight. Not only is it the easiest way to lose weight, it is the best way for long term results as well.
