Dieting - no one program works for all. There is a missing key factor.

A Very Individual Problem
Fortunately, people are beginning to realize that dieting is a very individual problem.
Quiz - Which of These 25 Weight Loss Problems Do You Actually Have?
As We Age...
For example, as we age our body chemistry changes and requires that we take a very different approach to weight loss in our mid-years. A diet that may work for a 25-year-old is not likely to work, in the long term, for a 45-year-old.
Poor Nutrition Can Cause Obesity
As well, there are a number of nutritionally-related imbalances that may cause obesity, such as slow metabolism and thyroid imbalance, sluggish liver, blood sugar imbalance, poor digestion and elimination, overeating (especially the wrong kinds of foods), or a combination of any of these.
Requires Right Approach For You
For example, some people can lose weight by going on a liquid fast for a day, while for others that will never work — not for lack of willpower, but because it’s the wrong approach for their body type. Some people will lose weight eating salads, etc. — while others will never lose weight that way — they have to find the foods that suit their body’s unique requirements.
No One Program Works for Everyone
There has never been one single dieting program that will work over the long term for everybody. There is, however, one key factor that is commonly missing in most weight loss programs.
Depends on Your Unique Requirements
Your dieting program — the dieting program that is best for you — depends on your unique nutritional requirements. The first step in any successful diet is to get your body into balance by identifying and replenishing the nutrients that your body craves. Only then can you begin to establish a solid, nutritious diet — the right one for you — which becomes a part of your lifestyle without taking over your life.
Lifelong Healthy Weight
Correcting nutritionally-related problems such as these makes achieving a lifelong healthy weight possible.
Meals Must Be Satisfying
No matter how few calories you eat, a diet won’t work unless the meals are satisfying and pleasing — your body will eventually rebel — you won’t feel well and your metabolism will slow down.
Supplements Must Be the Right Ones
There are vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements as well as superfoods that can help you lose weight faster but they must be the right ones for you — the ones that your body needs.
