Fatloss vs weightloss



To lose weight means to lose water weight and muscle tissue with little to no loss of fat tissue (typically as a result of starvation dieting) whereas to lose fat means to burn actual stored body fat tissue.  Fad diets including the Cabbage Soup diet, Jenny Craig, the Caveman diet, Richard Simmons, etc. are diets that result in weight loss not fat loss .  Diets such as the fat burning diet, the Atkins diet and the Zone diet are diets that result in a loss of fat tissue and are not intended for dieters who only desire to lose weight .

Shockingly, the average person does not even seem to understand that there is a difference between fat loss and weight loss let alone understand the difference between the different types of diets on the market.  Dieters desperate to lose weight are often only interested in watching the numbers on the bathroom scale go down each morning regardless of where the weight comes from.  As noted above, this type of weight loss is not the same thing as fat loss but rather a result of losing water and muscle tissue.  Fad diets are great for creating an illusion when it comes to losing weight because dieters are convinced that the weight loss is a result of fat tissue being burned.


In order to attain fat loss necessitates a person using a diet such as the fat burning diet, the Atkins diet or the Zone diet as these diets were created for this exact purpose. Fat loss diets (fad diets) such the Cabbage Soup diet, Jenny Craig, the Caveman diet and Richard Simmons can only help dieters to lose weight as this is what these diets were created to do.  Losing weight is simple and can be lost quickly as the body is comprised of over 75% water whereas fat reduction takes a little bit longer because it needs to be systematically removed from the body by eating in certain ways.  Think about it for a moment, why would anyone want to lose weight the hard way by following a fad diet when they could simply sit in a sauna for 20 minutes and lose 10 pounds, is the weight lost not the same?

Yes, but again most people do not even know there is a difference between fat reduction and weightloss.  You see, the average dieter is desperate to lose pounds and weightloss companies know this and therefore take advantage of the situation by telling dieters exactly what they want to hear even though it is an outright lie (people think they are going to lose fat properly).   Although not capable of causing fat reduction of any kind, companies will still say with a straight face "eat whatever you want all day and simply take our special pill before bedtime and magic will occur while you are sleeping".  Obviously it is not possible to lose fat without a true fat burning diet of some kind but dieters desperate enough to lose fat will continue to make fad diet manufacturers wealthy by believing the nonsense.
