Quick Weight Loss Diets
There are many diet plans that promise quick or rapid results if dieters use their methods.
Many of these fast weight loss plans have some type of hook such as a special ingredient, supplement, or eating routine.
These diets are popular because instant gratification is engrained in our fast paced modern culture.
Is Rapid Weight Loss Possible?
Most of the time, if you cut through all the fluff, these diets are usually just low calorie diets with some being very low in calories.
VCLD’s often result in a good deal of water weight loss at the beginning, which can cause the illusion of fat loss. While this can be good motivation, many people on rapid weight loss diets get frustrated when that trend doesn’t continue.

Beware of Diets that Promise Fast Weight loss
With the exception of a few of the above diets such as 17 Day, Medifast, Dukan, and Weight Loss Grail – many rapid weight loss diets promote dangerously low calorie amounts or “special” ingredients that will likely just take your money.
All of the research supports slow and steady weight loss, not only as a way to lose fat in a healthy way, but also as a way to keep the weight off for good.
People who lose weight via quick weight loss diets usually gain the weight back soon after and add even more pounds, which eventually leads to yoyo dieting.
