Stop Torturing Yourself! #IKHLW

Standard

The new year is quickly approaching. This is the time of the year where you want to get a jump on your New Years resolution to lose weight, so out come the diet plans to help you lose the weight you’ve gained in the past 11 months. 

These restrictive plans with child-sized portions and weird food combinations promise substantial weight loss in a short amount of time.

You commit to being miserable for a few weeks while you struggle through the diet dreaming of the day you can eat regular food again.

You make it through the plan and spend the next few weeks of the new year  a few pounds lighter. You convince your self that this weight loss will be the jump start to a new healthier you. Then you get a waft of your favorite comfort food then it’s game over.

Why?

  • Why torture yourself committing to a diet or eating plan that you know you can’t or don’t want to be on long term.
  • Why torture yourself eating in a way that makes you angry, resentful and hating the world 
  • Why torture yourself to lose a few pounds in a short period of time just to put it all back on again 

Diets are a restrictive quick fix that only works in the short term. Calorie restriction on most diets can slow down your metabolism and make it easier to gain weight but harder to lose it after you start eating regularly.

Don’t diet, learn how to to eat healthier. Learn how to make healthy versions of the foods you love. Give up chemically processed foods that have no nutritional value. Eat whole fresh real foods.
