The problem with dieting
Most diets work. There, I said it. They work for a while. They work while you have enough 'willpower' to adhere. But you know something about willpower? It’s finite. We can’t rely on it forever. If you want a lean, healthy body for the long term, whatever you’re doing today needs to be something you can imagine yourself doing a year from now and beyond. If you’ve ever had the following thoughts, you’re not alone: “I’ll be happy when I weigh _______.” “I’ll be happy when I can fit into a size ________.” “When I finally achieve __________, I will go back to eating ‘normally’.” These statements are what I refer to as the DIET MINDSET. It’s short-term focused and unsustainable. Too often in weight loss, we have a restrictive mindset. We say “I can’t have that!” But what if we changed our mindset to one of abundance? What if you thought: “I get to eat all of these beautiful, colourful foods that will nourish my body.”
Or, “I CHOOSE not to eat biscuits.” How EMPOWERING is that!? So, what’s your choice? A short term mindset of restriction or a long-term mindset of abundance? Amy P.S.
