A fad diet is a stylish weight loss plan which promises dramatic results, but typically delivers only temporary results.  Many of these programs are not healthy and actually can be harmful to your health.  Celebrity nutritionist and weight loss coach, Dr. Christian Middelthon, creator of The Reboot Diet, takes a different approach to the dilemma, but reminds us that common sense is often our best friend.  Reboot is a twelve-week weight loss program that combines a very low calorie diet with dietary modifications, all natural, customized nutritional support supplements, and weekly doctor supervision. Here he outlines eight secrets to a successful weight loss plan:

1.   SKIP BREAKFAST — Skip breakfast if you want to maximize weight loss. “Set aside conventional wisdom that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and opt for the more common sense philosophy that after a night of fasting, you rise from sleep, begin your day and jump start your metabolism with some physical activity,” shares Dr. Middelthon, explaining, “After not eating for several hours, your insulin level is very low, and this in turn allows you to effectively burn stored fat for energy.”

2.  JOURNAL  —  According to Dr. Middelthon, “Awareness is key to successful dieting.” Measure your food occasionally to ensure you really know how to eyeball proper quantities. You’ll be surprised how much more you are eating without being aware of it.  “Keep a food/feelings journal to help pinpoint awareness of emotional eating which can thwart your progress—not just in tough times when you are stressed, angry or depressed but also when you are happy, triumphant or celebratory.”

    I loved reading your tip about skipping breakfast to lose weight – it has been pounded into our heads that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but I read recently that it is actual healthier for you to skip breakfast as well as it helping you to lose weight.
