LighterLife | Another Crash Diet Fronted by a Celeb

| 15/02/2012 | 41 Comments More

Pauline Quirke, yes was very much a plus size woman in need of weight loss, but with plenty of money to do it correctly she chose the path of the quick fix and when it worked, of course she took the money offer from the company to front and endorse the product…

Will she be the front of Lighter Life when she puts the weight back on? Im sure Lighter Life wont want her!  Just another take the money and run celeb fronting another poor way to get slim and healthy, when are we going to get a responsible celeb who is going to loose weight the correct way and promote it?

Lighter Life is yet another product promoting unsafe rapid weight loss by extreme calorie deficiency with high protein, low carbs.  Where have we heard this before? Oh yeh, The Atkins Diet.  OK with the Atkins diet you were cooking your own food and this you get food packs, if you are of a BMI of over 30 you go onto their Total Programme which involves 4 food packs per day with a total of 500-600cals per day.

To put this in perspective, 500cals per day is approx only 100cals over the amount of calories the human body needs to survive! This is according to Lighter Life perfectly safe and that they say this because they get their clients to see the Doctor first before starting to make sure its safe to do the diet, this is just covering their backsides! Seriously, lowering your calorie intake to this level does of course make you lose weight fast, extremely fast but at a cost.

Lighter Life also market their diet with claims that their counsellers as they like to be known as instead of sales reps selling a product are fully qualified, they maybe qualified to sell a product, but they are not qualified nutritionists which is although not what they are claiming, many people going on to the diet assume they are when the website states all ‘counsellers’ hold a Btec in Weight Management Consultancy, this is nothing more than a bit of paper that says they can sell a Diet.  You should only take diet advice from a fully qualified nutritionist or dietrition.

This is just a short cut, quick fix lazy method to lose weight, once you have reached your goal you come off the diet and increase your calorie intake to a healthy level, for women 2000cals for men 2500cals.  But this is where the down fall starts, like every low calorie diet and this is exactly that on an extreme level.

When you lower your calorie intake you start to lower your metabolism, this is because the bodies safety mechanism kicks in, the body thinks it is being starved to stores the food as fat and burns much of its energy from protein which starts to see muscle loss.   Your metabolism burns slower to save energy, this is when you start putting the weight on, and just like many people on diets every year, when back to healthy normal eating the body still just cant cope, so not only do you gain the weight back but many gain even more weight!

Then you get depressed that youve put the weight back on and then you may well start to binge and eat all the wrong foods again and then you get to the point of going on another diet, and there the yoyo dieting cycle starts.

Dieting doesnt work!!! Full Stop! First 3 letters of Diet ‘DIE’ so when you think you are going to look at DIEting again, just remember the first 3 letters.

As a personal trainer I never get my clients to go lower than 1800cals but with a healthy eating plan and regular exercise the weight comes off and unlike DIEts, the weight stays off!

Whatever the packaging, the marketing and everything else, DIEts come down to one common denominator, they all reduce calories to lose weight.
