“Lose ten pounds fast with this diet.” “Get a flat belly in one week.” “Drop five pounds after doing this workout.” Sound familiar? Maybe you’ve tried one or two of these diets or quick-fix workout routines with the intention of losing a few pounds, but the number on the scale didn’t budge. Or maybe you lost weight, but had trouble keeping it off later on.
