Parisian Slim’s weight loss program sounds too good to be true. Does it mean that the Parisian Slim’s weight loss program does not work? No, not necessarily. In fact, while Parisian Slim’s weight-loss claims do sound a bit overly optimistic, to put it mildly, it is true that, for example (as one of their ads claims), you can eat chocolate and lose weight.
The ad also seems to be claming that on the Parisian Slim’s weight-loss program you can eat 5 times a day without worrying about what you eat – ice cream, cookies, burgers with fries, etc are all allowed. Naturally, these claims beg the following question: Can you really lose weight and eat pretty much anything you want? In addition, is this really a revolutionary weight loss discovery?
The truth is, technically these claims are true. And yes, I am cringing right now, but one of the biggest misnomers out there is that if you want to lose weight, you have to eat skinless chicken breast and steamed vegetables or something similar. Do not get me wrong, if your goal is to lose 10 pounds very, very quickly, the best way to go about it is to go on the so-called No Sugar No Flour Diet. Oh, and let’s not forget about the power of sugar detox.
However, if you do not care about the speed at which you can lose weight, you do not need to go on a strict diet. Can you eat cookies and fries and still lose weight? Yes, you can. Is it a good idea? No, it is not. It is a terrible idea. As long as your daily calorie consumption creates a calorie deficit, you can lose weight, which explains why you can eat, say, chocolate and twinkies, and still lose weight. A calorie is a calorie; it does not really matter where it comes from, right?
Right, but wrong at the same time. I do not know anyone who has permanently lost weight by eating cookies, cheeseburgers and other junk food, do you? Very few people can restrict their calorie consumption while eating junk food, because it is virtually impossible to keep your appetite under control when your blood sugar and insulin levels are going wild, which is exactly what happens when you consume foods high in simple carbohydrates and fat.
