Weight Loss Diets

Here is a fun fact.

The reason any weight loss diet has ever worked is because it reduces your caloric intake.

So long as your calorie expenditure remains consistent, the result can only be a calorie deficit, and subsequent fat loss.

This is true of any weight loss diet you can think of:

  • Ketogenic diet
  • Paleo diet
  • Weight Watchers
  • Intermittent Fasting
  • Military diet
  • Atkin’s diet
  • Vegan
  • Detoxes and cleanses

… and all the rest.

They might claim to work by cutting sugar, carbs, animal products or something particular from the diet.

However, in reality they work because they cut overall calories (whether we realize or not).
