There are many fad diets out there that promise you will lose the weight, but that does not necessarily mean you’re going to keep it off. About 95% of people who diet and lose weight will regain it within 1-5 years. In most cases, it’s even more harmful then not dieting at all.
Fad diets teach you nothing about eating healthy and mainly focus on the things you can’t have. It’s restrictive and lacks the essential nutrients to fuel your body. As a result, people fall back to their unhealthy habits which leaves lasting impressions of why diets don’t work. Well, they’re right!
Why don’t Diets don’t work? Because it doesn’t take into consideration of what’s going on with the rest of your life…
The right foods to fuel your body is only 25% of what it takes to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Figuring out the main motivation (your WHY) for wanting to make changes to your health is the first step. Second, having a supportive support team is important for your journey. A person training for the marathon would not do it alone, so why would you?
It’s not only about getting your body healthy, but more importantly, getting your MIND healthy. Unlearning what you have learned is the educational component to help you achieve your goals. So, reflect and ask yourself, “Is what I’m doing even working?”.
Transforming your health is a process and a journey. Be ready, be patient and most of all, be open to change.
