Trying everything from weight loss shakes, pills and diets is exhausting and draining. After investing all of your time and energy into thinking these quick fixes are going to be the answers to your frustrations, it turns out the weight is gained back. Does this sound familiar? Diets generally don’t work because when your diet come to a dwindling end, the weight you lose is often gained back, sometimes even more than you lost. Weight loss shakes and pills aren’t the ideal answer either, because the chemicals and ingredients in the shakes and pills can have adverse side effects and be even more detrimental to your body in the long run.

They say everything: keep track of what you’re eating, drink water 30 minutes before you eat, get enough sleep, eat more protein, count your caloric intake, lift weights, try cardio, cut out sugar, cut out the carbohydrates, don’t eat too much, eat small meals often, or stop starving yourself. These tips can range on a scale from helpful to confusing.
