Lots of us fall at the first hurdle when it comes to losing weight and regaining our fitness, finding motivating ourselves to eat properly and exercise one of the biggest challenges. What you have to recognise first is that there is no quick fix or magic pill that can do it for you. To successfully lose weight you need to be in the right mindset and commit yourself to changing your lifestyle.
So, why don't diets work?
Diets are tough
Going on a diet means major changes and that tends to be stressful. When you feel stressed you don’t want too many things to change you like to feel as settled as possible.. so you go back to your old eating habits & slobbing on the sofa. It’s a never ending cycle…. You need to be in the right mindset.
Diets make you feel denied what you like
It doesn’t matter what size you are – whether you want to drop one dress size or ten – diets do tend to make you feel hungry and you get cravings for all those bad foods that you need to avoids; Sugary, high in fat, junk. You feel like you are being deprived – “Everyone else can eat what they want so why can’t I?” Negative thinking like that can derail your progress; you need to train your mind to see how it will benefit you & how fantastic it will be when you achieve your goals.
Diets don’t consider the emotional aspect of overeating
Comfort eating. Emotional eating. Call it what you will, many of us turn to food as a means of comfort in times of stress or emotional upset. Dieting doesn’t solve these emotional problems – deal with them, get yourself into a better place emotionally so you can tackle the physical challenge at full strength.
Don’t diet; change your entire mindset!
Diets are a stopgap for anyone who really wants to lose weight and improve their lifestyle and fitness. You need to be in the right place mentally before you can be in the right place physically.
