by : Michael T. Davis

If you're interested in loosing weight with the Fat Loss 4 Idiots system, you've probably done the smart thing and looked up the pros and cons about it.? You're read a lot of things about what the diet is supposed to be.? I'd like to tell you a few things that it's not.

It is not a low-carb diet.? Low-carb diets are all the rage, so let's go ahead and get this out of the way right now.? Fat Loss 4 Idiots is not a low-carb diet.? It never will be.? Low-carb diets are just too difficult to stay with.?

They're not very healthy for you, either, if you have almost any physical activity in your day.? Those of you who've tried leading an active life while on a low-carb diet know the light-headed, weak feeling I'm talking about.? And speaking of light-headed, did you know that carbohydrates are essential for brain function?

It is not a low-calorie diet.? Low calorie diets don't tend to work very well after the first couple of days.? Why?? On the physical end, you metabolism slows down.? Your body tends to "worry" about whether it's getting enough food, and can actually save more food as fat, when it's not getting the food it's used to, to prepare for the famine your eating habits have told it is ahead.

There is also the psychological factor--it's hard to keep from being cranky when you feel hungry all the time.? Add this with the fatigue that comes with not getting enough energy (the calorie is a measure of energy).? Add in the fact that eating fewer calories leaves you feeling even hungrier, and you'll see why so many people have problems with low-calories diets..?

It's not a low-fat diet.? Fatty acids, like carbs, are essential to brain function.? Several essential nutrients--vitamins and minerals--are fat soluble, meaning they need fat to digest into your system.? Fat Loss for Idiots won't have you eating fat in overly healthy amounts, but it won't cut them out of your diet, either.

It's not Weight Watcher's, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, or anything else designed to sell frozen foods.? Fat Loss for Idiots isn't out to make money off you by selling you some special food line..? The diet has a web-based meal generator that won't try and sell you frozen meals in a box.? It won't even tell you where to shop.? What it will do is tell you what you can choose to eat to loose fat.

So--what IS Fat Loss 4 Idiots?? It's a meal plan that lets you pick what healthy foods you want to eat, and then shows you how to eat them throughout your day.? It boosts your metabolism and energy level by calorie switching, changing the kinds of food you eat from meal to meal.? It also--big plus--plans out four meals a day!

Well you've read plenty of what other people tell you the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet is.? I hope you've gained something by learning a little about what it's not!
