Last week we dove headfirst into a big dirty pile of DIETS! Let’s wrap things up this week with two more reasons diets suck and a gradual, strategic approach to changing your body is way better.
1: Life is busy… and nonstop calorie counting and food journaling simply do not fit in.
They’re inconvenient and tie a dietary ball and chain around your ankle that must be dragged through life. You don’t need this baggage. You need new habits that just happen, because they’ve been ingrained over time.
Many diets call for you to meticulously track things – count calories, grams of fat, grams of carbs, count points, or keep a detailed food journal. These can be insightful SHORT-TERM tools, but banking on them to “save you” from the Land of Fat is like planning for retirement by picking up pennies off the ground!
Bottom line – it won’t work.
Instead, why not learn what and how to eat so that you don’t have to count, track, and fret all the time? Sounds nice, huh? It’s totally possible.
2: Diets are gimmicky and based on the latest fad science.
Raise your hand if you’ve heard of unbelievable results related to one of the following magical cures: Acai berry, African Mango, Garcinia Cambogia, Blood Type Diet, South Beach, Atkins, Wheat Belly, Paleo, the All-Natural Ultra Cleanse, the list goes on and on.
Everyone is looking for a special angle to sell their product. Glitzy advertising and marketing companies can’t do much with the “Eat Your Veggies and Lean Protein Diet.”
Research shows us again and again what’s tried and true in the world of nutrition and weight loss. Sadly, most people don’t want to hear it, because they simply can’t believe the solution’s been under their nose all along.
Well, guess what . . . it has. Don’t fall for a gimmick or stupid fad science that might be dangerous.
