Disasters happen. Here's how to safeguard your home --
Fire, flood, robbery -- you can lose everything in an instant,
and then how do you get it all back? The first essential is homeowner's
insurance. The other must-have is less obvious: a home inventory that documents
all your possessions. This information will help you determine whether you have
enough insurance coverage. In the event of a disaster, it'll allow you to file
claims faster and more...
Their results don't last long. When you're done with the diet, and you go back to eating the way you used to, you're likely to gain back the weight, and maybe more. This is because fad diets don't teach you how to eat right.
9 Signs of Fad Diets
Fad diets often have one or more of these traits:
Promises a quick fix
Strongly warns against a single product or regimen
Sounds too good to be true
Oversimplifies complex research
Is based on a single study or testimonials
Makes dramatic statements that scientific groups reject
Tries to sell you a product
Is based on studies that independent experts haven't reviewed
Eliminates one or more food groups
To lose weight and keep it off, go with exercise and a good diet with moderate portions.
In general, a balanced diet of whole, unprocessed foods is ideal.
