Diets don’t work. They just don’t. You lose weight and you put it back on again after a few months. Sometimes you even gain more than you lost.
The’ diet game’ leads to frustration, depression, starvation, deprivation and begins to become the Centres point of our life and social conversations. At almost every party, you find people talking about weight, or health or envying someone who has lost so much weight or feeling insecure and low on ‘ self-esteem’ because of how you look or fit into your clothes. It’s a vicious cycle as you get sucked into this whole ‘ diet game ‘.
Too many people measure their worth with the wrong scale. Your weighing scale does not determine who you are.
Now sit back a bit, relax and think about this. If it took you a year, or maybe two, or even three years to get the way you are (extra fat, weight, belly fat, cellulite, etc), is it really possible that you can find a plan that makes you lose all of that in 3-6 months? It’s not possible. The science of the human body defies that.
If you have a weight problem, the first thing you need to do is think about all the things/behaviour etc. you have been engaged in over the last few months, years, that has got you in the shape that you are currently in. Write down the following –the extra coffees, desserts, reduction in your days of workout, increased meal portions, increased number of outside meals, increased holidays, etc.
Write it down. Your solution will be staring right back at you in the face- REDUCE!!! CUT BACK!! ADD !!!
Don’t always blame it on your age or your hormones or your genes. First study your LIFESTYLE and how it has changed over the last few months or years.
You don’t need professional help to figure that out.
And then….start making lifestyle changes but, one at a time. The most fantastic research I have been exposed to over the last few weeks is the fact that even if the unhealthiest person makes as little as one lifestyle change in a month, and keeps it consistent, he or she will begin to make a positive impact on weight or health.
Just one lifestyle change.

- Increasing your water intake
