Another reason traditional diets so often don’t work is that they don’t address the toxic waste in the body. Simply counting calories does not detoxify and cleanse the body. Weight loss won’t be permanent if your body’s systems are sluggish or impacted with waste matter or you suffer from toxic overload. In the DHEMM System, we ensure that you first rid your body of toxins, sludge, and excess waste to ensure that it can best utilize and metabolize the food you eat. 

It is imperative that you detoxify the body to break the addiction to the foods that make you overweight and unhealthy in order to lose weight and keep it off. The method of dieting that involves resisting foods for a period of time and then returning to old eating habits will always cause the weight to return. Therefore, the goal is to break the addiction to foods that cause you to be overweight so you no longer desire or crave them anymore. Most traditional diets don’t address how detoxifying the body aids in permanent weight loss

Why Popular Diets Fail Us 

There are many people who have tried popular diets but still struggle to lose the weight permanently. The primary reason is that most of the popular diets lack the nutritional support to allow your body to naturally regulate and lose weight. The diets often work in the short term, but they can also cause health problems, such as bloating, constipation, fatigue, skin problems, or make current health conditions worse due to the lack of balanced nutrition.

Additionally, these diets don’t address the underlying hormonal imbalances and sluggish metabolism issues that cause weight gain. Let’s look at some of the current and popular diets and why they don’t work for permanent weight loss.

High-protein/low-carb diets

Some of the most popular diets of our generation involve reducing or eliminating the intake of carbohydrates. When you do this, you will lose weight, but eliminating an entire food group removes nutrients the body needs to function properly. On this type of diet, you can eat large amounts of protein and fat and still continue to lose weight. 

The main problem with high-protein/low-carb diets is that they severely restrict an entire food group that has essential nutrients. Carbohydrates, such as grains, fruits, and vegetables, are what give us energy. When you stop eating carbohydrates, your body begins to break down fat very rapidly to receive a substitute for the carbohydrates it is no longer getting. This causes fat loss, initially. But your body will burn only a small amount of fat before it stops using fat as an energy source. It then begins to burn off water and then muscle tissue.

In more serious cases, it will turn to connective tissue and then organ tissue. This process is called catabolism, and it can become extremely dangerous, even deadly. Eventually, melatonin and serotonin are not produced, which suppresses your ability to function normally and maintain energy. High-protein/low-carb diets can cause low energy, fatigue, sleeplessness, mental confusion, fainting, and vomiting. You will lose weight, but unfortunately, you will gain it back when you go off the diet.

Low-fat diets

Low-fat diets are among the most unsuccessful of all diets. Too many people focus on reducing and limiting all fat in their diet. We now know that healthy fats are a vital part of the body’s survival and balance. The body’s use of fat helps determine the satisfaction level a person receives from food. It helps to produce key hormones that assist with proper functioning of the brain .

When low-fat diets became popular, many companies began offering low-fat versions of their products. But if you read the labels, many of these low-fat foods actually contain more calories than the regular version. This is due to the sugar added to make up for the flavor that was lost when fat was eliminated from the product. If you eat these foods, you really aren’t making much progress toward your weight-loss goals while on a low-fat diet. So many people end up eating low- fat foods and snacks thinking they were working toward losing weight, when in actuality they were eating more sugar and calories than they had in the past. 

High-carbohydrate diets

A high-carb diet has a lot of potatoes, breads, pastas, grains, and rice—so-called “energy” foods. Although carbs are necessary for a well- balanced diet, too many carbs can have a negative effect on blood-sugar levels, which affects mood and brain functioning. Additionally, too many carbs can create a condition known as insulin resistance, which I’ll discuss later. Insulin resistance is a common, but not widely known, reason so many people are getting fat at an alarming rate.

Additionally, carbs tend to have more calories than other foods. In the long term, a high-carb diet prevents the body from burning fat for fuel. So even though you may initially lose weight, you will quickly gain more weight, namely fat. As I have often said, it’s not hard to lose weight rapidly, but the trick is to keep the weight off permanently. Permanent weight loss must come from burning fat and maintaining as much lean muscle mass as possible.

You want to eliminate toxic overload in the body to shrink your fat cells. You want to also be sure that your hormones are properly balanced and that they are not hindering your weight- loss goals. Permanent weight loss (or fat loss) can be achieved with knowledge and effort as long as you remember that people don’t fail at diets; diets fail people. Most diets simply don’t help you achieve permanent weight loss.
