8. If You Want The Weight To Stay Off, You Must Lose It Slowly

This is another statement that is only partially true. A jumpstart on your weight loss program will often reboot your metabolism, forcing it to burn fat right away. You will reset your hormones and your brain chemistry by immediately detoxing from sugar, fast foods, and junk foods.

After this, however, it is important to eat enough calories that your lose about two pounds a week. Losing too much weight to quickly often leads to gallstones and other health problems.

So go ahead and start off with a three-day or five-day fast. Clear out those toxins and get a head start on your diet. Don’t return to the junk food and fast food; however, but eat plenty of healthy foods from Mother Nature so that you lose weight gradually and naturally.
