When you’ve tried every diet under the sun, it’s easy to feel like nothing will ever work for you. Perhaps the diets you’ve tried are too conventional. It’s important to remind yourself that what works for others won’t necessarily work for you. Check out this list of unique diets that may be the right fit for you.
The Scent of Food
Several studies have found that smelling foods before eating helps to curb overall hungriness. Since our tastebuds rely so much on our sense of smell, it’s no wonder that the smell of a delicious meal feels so satisfying in and of itself. You can even try it with your Promax bar – they smell as delicious as they taste!
Another sense to rely on for weight loss is sight. Scientists found that when people visualize their last meal, or look at a picture of a meal they’ve eaten in the past, their appetite for a snack lessens. Time to find that awesome Instagram picture you took of brunch this weekend!
Not willing to lessen your food intake? Not a problem. This diet encourages you to keep eating. Specifically, you would have to eat foods that are rich in probiotics (such as yogurt) to induce bacterial growth in your digestive system. Fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kimchi do wonders for your metabolism as well. Those who stick with this diet can lose 21 pounds in 6 months on average. Bacteria never sounded so appetizing!
Cabbage Soup Diet
This is the mother of all veggie soups. Carrots, celery, green onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and cabbage mixed together in a soup help you stay full while supplying some great nutrients. However, too much of anything is never a good idea. That’s why the concept of only drinking cabbage soup for a whole week doesn’t jump out as the best of ideas. While those who have attempted it claimed to have lost 10 pounds in that time frame, they are forgetting that there are essential nutrients to consume that aren’t available in soup or veggie form. Go to your nearest store, or order your Promax bars online to make up for some of those nutrients before going all in.
Eggs and Dessert
You’ve heard of eggs and bacon, and green eggs and ham, but what about eggs and dessert? A study from Tel Aviv University found that people who consumed a high-carb, sweet, and protein rich breakfast within their 1,600 calorie daily intake lost as much weight as those on a low-carb diet. Apparently, it’s the combination of the dessert aspect that controls your sweet tooth later in the day, and the protein that curbs your appetite, that helps with the overall weight loss.
So if you’re looking for just the right diet to help you reach your fitness goals, why not try one of these? Others have found success with them, and you might just, too.
