Loading up on produce won't help you to lose weight

When you're on a diet, you don't need "advice" from well-meaning friends. You need earplugs so you can tune them all out!

Count your calories! Cut your fat! Guzzle water by the gallon!

Do these people have any idea how ridiculous they sound? They may as well tell you to make a magic diet potion with bat's breath and eye of newt -- it'll be about as effective.

One of the worst pieces of advice you'll hear is also one of the most common -- and that's the lettuce-brained call to eat more fruits and vegetables.

Supposedly, loading up on cabbage and kale will somehow trick your belly into feeling full -- and if you want to know how well it works, just ask one of the obese dieters who were told to eat a bunch of fruits and vegetables before meals as part of a new study.

They didn't feel fuller. They didn't feel better. They didn't feel more satisfied. They didn't even lose weight -- and the ones who ate more fruit in particular actually gained some. And when they drank 100 calories of juice at lunch to boost their fruit intake, they gained up to five pounds over eight weeks.

That's not a diet -- that's a disaster!

Vegetables simply won't help you feel full. And fruits will do the opposite since the sugars in them will mess with the hormones that signal hunger and satisfaction. Other carbs will have the same effect, which is why any diet that doesn't start by cutting those levels down to near zero will ultimately fail.

And that's also why eliminating carbs will practically guarantee diet success.

The sooner you figure that out, the better. And once you do, you won't have to learn any other tricks. There's no calorie counting or portion control -- and no gallons of water to drink.

Just enjoy a diet rich in fresh animal fats and proteins. Eat until you feel full, and let your body take care of the rest.

It'll take some getting used to after years of riding the high-carb train wreck. But unlike bat's breath, eye of newt and loading up on fruits and vegetables, this is one bit of diet advice that actually works.
