Is the Fat Smash Diet a total fraud?

Many people like to be told what to do, and like structure. They like the idea that they are "doing" something. They like that they can say, "I am on the Fat Smash Diet"- because it makes you seem like you have less of an excuse.

We all know what we need to do here. I am seeing a few people in my groups and teams talk about this thing, and it just strikes me as a diversion from what we need to do. It almost seems as if there is some insatiable need for the next fad diet. If it didn't exist, we'd have to invent it!

My way of eating is this-eat only what you truly want. That might be some wonderful baked cookie or two, or a giant salad. But only eat what you want. Don't eat what you think you should, if you hate carrots, don't eat them. Stop when you get full, and eat only when you are hungry.

Well if everyone know's what to do & how to do it then what are we all doing here? We wouldn't need PT now would we? If you bothered to read the very short "Fad" FS diet book you'll find that it is all about teaching yourself to eat healthy & how to retrain your body back to a normal way of eating. Don't knock it unless you actually know something about it. Just because it's not for you doesn't mean it doesn't help a lot of other people.

If you don't like the "diversion" then go find another group/team. Maybe your just jealous that they found a healthy way to lose the pounds that really works for them & you haven't!

I've had a sugar addiction that I have never been able to beat until I started the Fat Smash diet. I no longer have any cravings for the junk food or sugar/salty snacks. If I feel like I want something sweet I grab fruit or make a fruit smoothie, nothing beats it & I am extremely happy about it & losing the wt too in the process.

To answer your question, no, It is not a fraud.
