Thanks for posting this! I have always wondered if those fad diets were healthy in the long run. They might help you lose weight but they can't be good on the body.

It drives me crazy when people equate eating healthy with dieting .

I agree that fad diets (keto, atkins, etc) are not a healthy way to lose weight and that MOST people will eventually gain the weight back plus some.

Restricting calories too much can lead to your metabolism slowing down (a bit) and loss of lean muscle mass.

I have lost about 50 lbs by eating 250 calories under my TDEE a day and adding in resistance training. My metabolic markers are the best they have been in years, and by building my lean muscle mass I am helping to keep my metabolism steady (lean muscle burns more calories).

It is sad how many people follow diets blindly because of celebrity endorsements, or promises that are too good to be true.

I learned about this when I read Intuitive Eating when I got help for my eating disorder. Essentially dieting makes your body think it's in a famine so when you eat normally again, your body holds on to the reserves thinking that another famine is around the corner.
