Avoid Summer Weight Loss Gimmicks

There will be summer weight loss gimmicks aplenty, as usual. You don't have to fall for the weight loss traps. Never think short-term when it comes to weight loss. You can lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks but your body won't look lean and healthy. And, you will feel horrible. You don't just want to lose weight for summer, you want a lean, healthy body for life.

Start exercising today toward your goal of fat loss and permanent weight loss.

The quick weight loss gimmicks lead to yo-yo dieting and even more weight gain! There are no quick solutions to permanent fat loss and weight loss.

Make the commitment to change your eating habits permanently even if you have to take small steps to get it done! And mix in regular weight training (including bodyweight exercises) and interval cardio. This is the proven recipe to give you the toned, healthy body you want and need.

Advertisements such as "lose 30 pounds in 30 days," sends a message that has a short-term solution to your weight problem. Why? Because weight lost that quickly (without regular exercise) will be mainly lost muscle mass instead of fat mass (this will slow down your metabolism). You also might be very ill after losing that much weight in such a short period of time.

It's not going to help you much if your body looks good (for the summer) but your health and quality of life is a total wreck! Exercise hard and smart. Build a foundation for your body.

Forget the commercials that say "lose 30 pounds in 30 days...." You will put that weight back on (and more) because your body composition (less fat, more lean muscle mass) has not changed!
