Will a detoxing diet help you lose fat or just water weight?

December 26th, 2012 3 comments

If i go on a detoxing diet, i want to lose fat. So i will be working out for atleast an hour a day too. Detoxing diets seems like it only helps you lose water weight.

If you want to lose fat, why detox? Detox doesn’t work, never worked, is not possible, and never has been possible. You can lose fat simply by eating a healthy diet and cutting portions to create a caloric deficit. The detox myth is not about fat, it’s about some silly idea that you can purify your body.

There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don’t work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

Check out the following references because you’ve probably been getting your information from unreliable sources.

"’Cleansing’ diets may be worthless"

"A day on a detox diet program probably won’t hurt you, but there’s little point in following these restrictive diets – and they can do far more harm than good, says Michelle May, MD,"

"Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists"

"The human body can defend itself very
well against most environmental insults and the effects of occasional indulgence. If you’re generally healthy, stick to giving your body what it needs to maintain its own detox system— a healthful diet, adequate fluid intake, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, and all recommended medical check-ups. Don’t waste your money…follow a healthy, balanced lifestyle instead."

You can find your own links debunking the detox diets, master cleanses, and other such nonsense by Googling "detox diet myth" or searching for your appropriate key words.

The way to detox is to stop ingesting toxins and let your body cleanse itself naturally. If you have, for example, THC in your blood from smoking pot, there is no food, no flush, no purge, no cleanse that will make it go away. Your body will metabolize and excrete it naturally given sufficient time. The best diet for all normal adults hasn’t changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods. Forget detox. If you want to burn fat, do this.

Eat a diet of varied, wholesome, and high quality foods such that your daily caloric intake is about 500 calories less than your daily caloric burn while keeping your macronutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein) and not doing anything to defeat the foregoing plan such as taking supplements, drinking alcohol, abusing drugs, using cleanses or emetics, etc. That’s it. It’s that simple.

Here’s the only two websites you need to do that.
1. This site has a wide range of information about foods, fat, diets, and exercise with calculators, diet tips, food facts, etc. —>

2. This website is a great way to track calories, macronutrients, water, and exercise. It also does all the math for you and makes it super easy to look up foods to enter into your online food intake diary. There’s a discussion forum where you can exchange info with thousands of other dieters. —>

Here’s my food intake diary as an example —>

Good luck and good health!!


What will a healthy diet ALONE do for my slim body?

December 26th, 2012 1 comment

Let me start off by saying that I’m very slim, but I do have somewhat loose skin and fat.

Okay, now, say I’m getting all the protein and junk that my body needs, but I don’t exercise much…what would the healthy eating ALONE do for my bddy? Would it trim away whatever little fat I have and fill out my somewhat loose skin?

Dieting may be serious job to do. Try "un diet" program.

What is a diet plan you would recommend for convenience?

December 24th, 2012 3 comments

I know fresh food like fruits and vegies are good for a healthy diet but I can’t go to the shop at least twice a week in order to get that stuff fresh. How can I plan a diet to last a fortnight? I’m tempted to do those meal replacement diets with shakes and soups just because they’re cheap and convenient.

Hi Adazia,

I would recommend a program that generates a menu for you to buy things off the grocery store and not to worry about calories and carbs… something simple.

I have tried this system (which is cheap and not some big and expensive diet stuffs) and has worked for me and my friends. Hence I have created a website to help people who, like me, likes a healthy diet program but still able to eat.

What Is The Best Online Diet Program?

December 10th, 2012 5 comments

I need to lose about 25 pounds this year and I’m planning on starting a new diet program. I’ve been looking around at some of the diets available online and I’m wondering if anyone has had success (or not) with any of them?

I think it has to be The Day Off Diet and I don’t only say that because it worked for me, I also just think it’s the diet that will most likely work the best for anyone else too. And it’s just got the coolest features of any diet I’ve ever tried. The "day off" really does make the diet easier to follow because you always have that day to look forward to every week. And it’s amazing how taking the "day off" actually made my weight loss speed up. So yeah, I’m definitely glad I found The Day Off Diet last summer.

What is a good way to get toned before summer?

December 10th, 2012 5 comments

I don’t need to lose weight, I just want to tone up my body before summer rolls around. I’m a female, and I’m about 5’6 and I weigh 110 lbs.
I’m just trying to seek out a good work out routine (something I can do at home because I can’t afford a gym membership) and healthy eating habits. Suggestions?

If you need an online exercise and diet plan to tone up and lose fat, try the Fat X Workout and Diet program. It’s a 12 day fat burning and fitness program you can cycle as many times as you want. It works great to lose fat, tone up and get fit fast. The videos and other good tips and tricks to losing weight, toning up and burning fat fast are free on the blog (Fat X101). Good luck.

What is the best diet program with food delivery?

December 2nd, 2012 2 comments

I’m talking about diet programs that deliver meals already made. I know about nutrisystem. Are there any other options? Which one is the best?

What is the best? I wish I could give you the name of a company that would promote your health as well as weight loss…but I can’t. Although I do have another way to go about it… Im assuming you don’t want to cook. I would search out a trader joes or whole foods in your area and buy fresh or frozen prepared foods (without added chemicals) and base your diet on a calorie count. What is your desired weight? Take your desired target weight and multiply it by 10. Then add 30% to that. That is the maximum number of calories you should consume everyday. Look online for a good calorie counter and write down EVERYTHING you eat!!!!!!! This diet will work but takes time (you’ll lose 1-2 pounds a week). I hope this helps!!!!

i have a weight loss diet recipe that you lose 10kg in 7 days its guaranteed result.?

May 17th, 2012 1 comment

can i by any chance sell it to big companies? if you have any idea where i can sell it?

At it’s most basic, losing weight is about burning more calories than you eat. That seems simple enough, but if were really that simple, none of us would have a weight problem. Too often we take drastic measures to see results — diets, pills or those weird fitness gadgets on infomercials that promise instant success. Maybe you lose weight but what happens when you go off that diet or stop that crazy workout program? You gain it all back and more. The real secret to weight loss is to make small, lasting changes. The key is to forget about instant results and settle in for the long run.

Why Do Diets Fail?

May 16th, 2011 6 comments

Anyone who has ever tried to stay with a diet program knows it can be very difficult.  Most people will try and quit many times before they find a program or diet that works for them.  There are many reasons why diets fail but the most important thing is to not get discouraged.  In this article I will highlight some of the major reasons that diets fail, and by knowing them you will be better able to avoid them in the future.


When starting a diet or program try to choose something you can see yourself enjoying.  I know this sounds strange but it makes sense.  Don’t choose a program that has you eat more meat I you don’t enjoy meat.  You will hate the diet, and there is little chance of sticking with it and getting results.  The same goes exercise; don’t jog if you hate doing it.  Pick another more enjoyable activity, maybe riding a bike or swimming.  When a program is selected that contains things you enjoy you will have a much better time and likely see better results. 


Another reason why diets fail is because goals get set too high.  Often people want to lose weight because of an event coming up.  Maybe you want to drop fifteen pounds for a wedding coming up in a week.  That is unrealistic, and could be a bit dangerous if you were able to do it.  While it is important to have a target weight in mind it shouldn’t be part of your weekly goals.  It is far too easy to get discouraged by not losing the amount of weight you wanted and miss the fact that you are losing weight.


Motivation and seeing success for yourself is often overlooked.  Staying motivated can be hard to do especially for individuals who are looking to lose weight at an unreasonable rate.  It is very important to keep in mind that you are changing habits about yourself that took years to form.  Visualize yourself at your goal weight and remember that this image of your self is 100% attainable. 


Slipping up is not the end of the world.  So you had a bad day and ate some things you would rather not mention.  A few too many beverages and if you went jogging your head may explode.  Then you start to feel you’ve failed, you’re back to your old ways.  That’s where you’re wrong, so you messed up just jump right back in.  So many diets fail this way and it’s just a waste, a mess up here and there is normal just don’t give up.


There are many reasons why diets fail and it is important to recognize them and keep on going.   Enjoying what you eat, setting realistic goals, keeping yourself motivated, and sticking to your diet even after a slip up are all great ways to keep from failing at your diet.  Know that not every plan is for every person, if it feels like a punishment research more and find something that better fits you.

What is a really good weight loss diet program?

May 8th, 2011 4 comments

I want to get a head start on weight loss for the new year. I don’t have a lot of extra time, so an online program would be best for me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I’d recomend yoga, and/or regular aerobic exercise. Along with drinking plenty of water and eating healthy. Because diet food is really bad for you.
