High protein diet scam and 3 alternative weight loss recipes

If you’re struggling to lose weight in time for summer, then you might be tempted to try out one of the more extreme fad diets currently in fashion. And, if you believe the hype surrounding the high protein diet then you could be expecting to lose as much as 15 kilos a month. Unfortunately, the success rate for this costly and potentially dangerous diet is depressingly low and you’re therefore likely to be left both sorely disappointed and extremely out of pocket.

The high protein diet works by avoiding solids (at least in the first stage) and triggering a state known as ‘ketosis’ in order to burn fat and limit your appetite. However, most nutritionists concur that this diet cannot provide your body with adequate levels of nutrition and that those who try it are usually unable to maintain their weight loss once they stop. The high protein diet is associated with a long list of unpleasant side effects too, including headaches, irritability, nausea, kidney trouble and heart palpitations and it can lead to an erratic metabolism, raised cholesterol levels and even renal failure, osteoporosis and cancer.

The superfood diet is a far safer alternative to the high protein diet or indeed any other fad diet. The superfood diet works by enhancing your existing eating and exercise regime with a range of powerful superfoods, which are naturally rich in fat burning nutrients.

Each of the three delicious weight loss recipes below will not only help you to look good in your bikini this year, they’ll make sure that you don’t fall prey to the latest high protein diet scam.
