    Are diets effective for losing weight?

    Diets are something that I want to start with for losing weight. The ones who tried them, are they effective? Are some types of diet more effective than the others?

    The most effective diet is not to eat flour and sweet foods

    all diets have a 90%+ failure rate mate in the long term, from the literature I have seen. Just about all diets are fads and not worth your time.

    When you see the 5 year and 10 year studies the recidivism rates are very high (in excess of 90%) as you body always wants to return to the higher weight and almost none of the diets address the underlying issues of why you are overeating, eating the wrong foods and not exercising enough.

    You must address those issues first before any eating plan (I hate the idea of a 'diet') can have any chance of success.

    The recipe for weight loss is a simple, you have to burn off more calories than you take in.

    A balance eating plan and moderate exercise is the key to a healthy life style.


    I suggest spending the money and going and seeing a dietitian in conjunction with your GP and have a full work up done.

    Get a plan in place and try to stick with it.

    If anyone thinks I don't know what I am talking about I lost 70kgs recently, but I had to do it through gastric sleeve surgery (where they remove 90% of your stomach) I am 3 years post-op and now the fittest and healthiest I have been in in a decade.

    Wave Man, the term "wave man" is the English translation of 'Ronin' (Japanese word) and literately translates to "wandering person" and in a modern context a WaveMan is one who is socially adrift or a SalaryMan who is between employers.

    They might be effective, but it's better to exercise
