Do You Want to Lose Weight Fast?
Or Permanently?

New research suggests it's a choice you'll have to make. You can't have both.

There are problems when you lose weight fast and furiously, as contestants on The Biggest Loser do. It may lead to major health concerns like gout, kidney stones, and gallstones.

Do you want to lose weight fast or permanently?

Permanent weight loss is typically slow, and consists of a healthy eating plan with moderate exercise. Fast weight loss usually means intense hunger, excessive exercise, and a body that ultimately rebels. Find out how it rebels.

Fast Weight Loss

In addition to health concerns, crash diets and rapid weight loss can thrust your body into starvation mode, and your body’s not happy about that. You go wild with hunger. You have a huge desire to binge.

Plus, your body starts clinging to whatever calories do come in. Rapid weight loss, in short, may dramatically slow down your metabolism. In fact, that’s exactly what new research on people on The Biggest Loser found. The rate at which they burned calories plummeted. This happens because rapid weight loss beats up your body composition. The percentage of your body that is fat shoots up, and the percentage that is lean, calorie-burning muscle falls.

So, rather than asking, “How fast can I lose weight?” the much more important question is: “How can I lose weight safely and permanently?”

Permanent Weight Loss

The best and scientifically-supported way to lose weight safely and permanently is with a program like Pritikin. With the Pritikin Eating Plan, you’re eating a lot of good food that fills you up, staving off hunger and binges, but for the lowest calorie cost.
