We like quick fixes; this is why detoxes, fad diets and supplements promoting fat loss are so appealing, unfortunately though they are not successful in the long term. We naturally don’t want to know that it’s a simple process of being in a calorie deficit and that we just have to be consistent with our nutrition and training.
Yeah sure you will drop a lot of weight in the first week or so following some fad diet or detox protocol but are you realistically going to be able to sustain it long term? I highly doubt it. You will more than likely regress back to bad habits and eventually gaining back all the weight.
Fat burners don’t “burn fat”; they just burn a hole in your wallet.
Detoxes? You can’t detox your body through food or drink. Your kidneys, lungs and liver do this for you and don’t require any help. All that happens following a detox diet is you drop a lot of weight (mostly water) because you are cutting out a ton of food and beverages that results in a major calorie deficit by default. Also some can be dangerous if followed long term due to needlessly cutting out food groups which could result in nutrient deficiencies, the same goes for some fad diets as well.
So be consistent on eating mainly whole nutrient dense foods with some desired foods in moderation like that doughnut or large cappuccino.
Be consistent with exercise to build some nice lean muscle tissue and being able to burn more calories.
And finally be patient. You didn’t gain fat over a couple of weeks or that one takeaway every Saturday night. It was an accumulation of fat slowly over months and years so don’t expect it to be much quicker when trying to lose fat.
