Diets Don’t Work!
Most people who diet gain their weight back. And the weight fluctuation created by yo-yo dieting is actually worse for your health than just staying overweight!
Diets are not sustainable – they are alienating, stressful, depressing and restrictive. Most people can stick to a certain protocol for a while, but most of them have requirements that make them hard to sustain in the real world where we all have different things to juggle in our personal life, career, and family responsibilities.
Diets do not take into account bio-individuality, which means that every body is different – how the body metabolizes nutrients, and how each individual has a different lifestyle that may or may not fit well with the rigid requirements.
Diets are expensive. Most diets require participants to buy specialty foods or prepared meals. On top of that, if you rely on prepared meals in order to know what you can eat, is this method sustainable? Do you know what you can eat or order when you are eating out or visiting friends and families?
Sometimes these protocols require supplements because certain foods are eliminated, thereby striping the diet from certain nutrients. Supplements can be expensive. Moreover, there is no telling whether the body is actually utilizing those nutrients in the supplements. If the supplements are not in bio-available forms that are optimized for absorption, they will just pass out of the body and are practically useless.
The way we eat has to be a way of life and sustainable. Just eat real food with real ingredients and get rid of the diet mentality. STOP dieting!
