Dieting – Losing weight or being healthy?

So recently there have been a ton of articles about how what you eat isn’t as important as how much you eat. One article specifically states that adherence to any diet is what gets results not the diet itself.

I’m sorry but this is false. Diets aren’t created equal even if you can lose weight on them.

Yes losing weight is about calories in vs. calories out. BUT only if you don’t care if you are skinny fat with a very unhealthy inside.

I mean, I’ve been there and done that. I’ve done other diets (low-fat, higher carb diets specifically) and I’ve “lost weight.” I’ve suffered through the torture of giving up foods that I love.

And I never got real results. I never looked super lean and muscled. Before now, Id always gotten skinny-fat and I wasn’t very healthy.

But who wants to be skinny fat? Who wants to suffer doing a diet that doesn’t make them healthier?

NOT ME! I want great body composition and if I’m sacrificing at all to be on a “healthy” diet, I want the diet to make me healthier! So yea….I’m concerned with more than just simply calories in vs. calories out.

So the bottom line isn’t “All diets work if you stick to them.”

And I mean come on…it isn’t just simply easy to stick to ANY diet!
