Most people make the mistake of rushing into whatever new fad diet they’ve heard of and lose it after they’ve lost the weight (if they can make it that long). Then it all ends up coming back to haunt you. But there are some small habit changes that you can use in real life that will make your diet last longer, be more affective, and even be less painful. It’s not magic, it’s just figuring out what works best for you and making them a legit habit. Habits die hard, like biting finger nails.

It can be hard to tell people that you want to get into shape. If you’re not the fittest guy on the block right now, it’s easier to let people think that you’re happy the way you are than to ask someone to go with you when you hit the gym.

Juice fasting is on the rise. The idea behind it is simple. Get yourself from fresh, organic, naturally and locally grown produce and juice them, skins and all. Then you drink the juice and supposedly get all the nutrients and vitamins right out of it without taking in nearly as many calories. This is an extremely calorie restricted diet that emphasizes how many vitamins and nutrients your body is going to get. The idea is, who needs calories when you’ve got all of this going for you? The question then is whether or not you’re really getting everything they claim you are.
