YES yes yes, 1000x yes!
I believe in taking a more moderate approach and building habits into your life that will last a lifetime. Wow okay, I know that is a long time, but hear me out 😂
Normally what happens when people go on extreme or ‘fast result’ diets, is they cut out A LOT of food in order to create a large calorie deficit... so in theory the diet will work because IF they stick to it, they will lose weight quickly. HOWEVER, cutting out lots of food groups is
🙍🏻♀️Difficult in any social setting
And usually the only way people actually stick to it, is by hanging on to the fact, that is is temporary & as soon as they hit that target weight, they ain’t doing it anymore ✋🏼
The problems that can arise with this approach:
1️⃣If you can’t stick to the diet, you blame yourself - you might think “I don’t have enough willpower” or “maybe my body just can’t lose fat”
2️⃣You begin to demonise certain foods, maybe carbs, biscuits, pizza, burgers, pasta, margaritas!!! Whatever you’ve been told to cut out. You might think these foods are inherently fattening (they’re not, they’re just highly palatable so it can be easier to overeat them)
3️⃣You end up going from one extreme to the other, you’re on the plan in the week, then you accidentally go off the plan at the weekend - then you feel like you’ve let yourself down, you feel guilty, then you start the whole process again. Every. Week.
Whereas if you go for the less glamorous option, of slowly building up healthy habits, increasing your sleep, doing more steps, learning about calories, doing exercise you enjoy (at least to some extent) - no, it won’t promise you 14lbs off in a few weeks BUT I think you’ll feel a lot happier (less hungry), you’ll learn WHY fat loss occurs & be able to make choices that work for you in any context & you’ll be able to take these practices with you for LIFE.
