Fad diet is a term used to describe a whole array of short term, ad-hoc diet approaches used to temporarily lose weight through unsafe and unrealistic methods.
There is a new method in the market every other day falling in this category. Fat diets work like this in general:
For a short period of time (10 days to 1 month), your diet is restricted to a select collection of bad-tasting health foods or recipes. Also, you’re told to minimize your eating in this period. The diets vary a lot but generally fats are completely avoided in these diets.
As a reaction of this ‘starvation diet’, initially your body cells lose water and there is a rapid apparent loss of weight (due to water loss).
After the initial water loss period, as you continue to starve, your body starts to burn your muscle mass in order to keep up with the energy needs. It will still not start burning fats which is the basic reason behind obesity. And as you avoid fats in your diet in this period, your body will try to preserve every pound of fat that it has in its store.
If the dieter goes on with the fad diet for about 2 weeks to 1 month, eventually most of the muscle mass is burnt and then the body starts burning the stored fats having no other alternative to stay alive. But the dieter starts getting weaker, gets lazy and is not able to perform or live well in this initial stage of fat loss because it requires a lot more effort and time for the body to produce energy from fat rather than from muscle.
And finally something breaks and generally it’s the diet plan (and thankfully enough because otherwise the dieter will be starved to death losing fat). At this stage, the dieter is back to his normal eating but as that happens, initially the body is perplexed. It thinks some kind of joke is being played upon it. First, a food supply that wouldn’t keep a mouse going.. and now.. you’re feeding like an elephant.
So the body takes some time before it’s back to re-structuring your muscle and during this time, it stores most of the food intake as excess fats.
So at the end of it all, the dieter is back to his initial weight gaining back all the weight he lost and quite often, little bit more.
That’s how fad diets fail, every single time they’re followed, 100% of times! because they’re destined to fail.
As described above, one cannot lose weight permanently with fad diets without starving himself to death. So fat diet approach is flawed at the basic level. It can never successfully make you slim.
The only approach that works in order to get rid of the obesity problem permanently is the simple lifestyle shift approach to weight loss which is what MagicallySLIM is all about.

You know the whole sequence. You go on a diet, exercise, cut down the foods that you enjoy, lose weight and then even before you’re done with celebrating your relatively slim body, it’s all back! What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you just make your weight loss stick?
Is it because you don’t have the right genes? Or because you like eating a lot? (Who doesn’t??) Or perhaps because you eat the wrong kinds of food? May be because you don’t exercise enough? No! Stop beating yourself up.
If you are like most individuals, you have probably failed on at least 1 weight loss effort in the past. Others might have told you that there was something wrong with you or you don’t have a strong will to sustain a weight loss effort. But what happened to you is very common and perhaps you’re not much to blame about it either except that you chose an incomplete weight loss plan to follow.
About 98% of weight loss efforts fail completely!
Wonder why? OK.. Tell me one thing.. Would you really be upset with a runner who didn’t win the race, if he had his hands and feet tied?
Such a huge proportion of dieters fail in the long run because they neglect the role of mind in a dietary success. Trying to lose weight without psycho-somatic assistance is like running in the race with your hands and feet tied!
Initially, it is the use of one’s own mind that is practically and ultimately his sole means of controlling and changing any endeavor or environment. In so being, one’s own mind becomes his most important tool and creator of dietary success or for that matter success in any endeavor.
Aside from actual physical dysfunction, such as glandular imbalance, additional proof of the mind’s seniority in weight loss lies within the fact that if one’s mind were trained and contained the proper dieting attitudes, habits and self-image in the first place, one wouldn’t even have the weight he is now trying to lose.
The principle behind dietary mind training is really quite simple. If your dietary ideas and thoughts change, your dietary attitudes and feelings will naturally change. If your dietary attitudes and feelings change, your dietary behavior will naturally change. If your dietary behavior changes, your control over your own dieting will naturally change, and if you improve your control over your own dieting, you will obtain dietary success with much greater ease, speed and permanency because you will be able to follow and stay on a diet.

Self-Image is simply the realistic image you mentally see of yourself. That includes your abilities, weaknesses, limitations and whatever else you feel you are worthy and deserving of achieving and possessing.
A low self-image is a big initial barrier to achieving any desired goal in general. Attaining permanent weight loss is no different.
The key concept is the ‘initial’ barrier. It’s not a permanent barrier or at least it should not be allowed to become one.
Any effective weight loss system MUST deal directly with your self-image concepts at some point. Without that incorporation, it’s extremely difficult to permanently override pre-existing dieting habits held within the subconscious mind.
It’s obvious from the behavioral analysis of those people who eat almost anything and still stay slim that in their minds, they have a solid and unshakable picture of themselves at their present level of thinness.
No matter what they eat or do, that picture remains unaltered. They are absolutely certain that they can eat whatever they want to and still remain slim. They eat without fear of gaining weight!
If you think that it is beyond your abilities to become slim, then no matter how well you try to keep up with your diet and exercise plan, you will never be able to implant the ‘certainty’ factor into your weight loss effort.
And as a result, your conscious mind will never allow the absurd slim image to get to your subconscious mind.
MagicallySLIM teaches one incredibly powerful yet simple technique to trick your subconscious mind as far as the ‘certainty’ factor is concerned so you can get rid of the low self-image (the ‘initial’ barrier) right away and focus your attention on more important parts of your weight loss effort.
There are certain simple ways to attain a high self-image for your weight loss mission. MagicallySLIM includes a big psycho-somatic subsection called ‘Think Slim, Be Slim!’ which tells you exactly how to boost your self-image with minimum effort to assure your weight loss effort’s long term success.
