The downside of dieting (and how to do it differently)
I’ll start tomorrow’
How many times have you said this to yourself?
If you’re anything like me, it’s too many to count. What if I told you you could find a healthier balance and have more energy – without dieting, guilt or depriving yourself? If you want to stay in good health longer term, these 5 reminders are a powerful place to start.
- Ditch the diet and stay healthy anyway. Calorie crashes lead to long-term weight gain. Yes, they’re a short-term fix to a few extra pounds. But it’s biology, not willpower that has the biggest say in your wellbeing longer term.
- What if you were to shift your focus away from your weight and instead towards your lifestyle? You’d eat the cake. But you’d take the stairs. Look for patterns to change – not food to rule out. Small tweaks every day = big change a year from now.
- Listen up! Your body is nothing short of amazing. It also knows what’s good for you. And if you listen in closely, it will let you know. Pay close attention. After all, it’s the only one you’ve got.
- Juggling like a crazy lady? Carve out (and protect) pockets of ‘me time’ each week. Allocating responsibility elsewhere is probably overdue. And you never know, it may even be welcomed.
- Health isn’t merely an absence of illness. It’s physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing. Enjoying food with family and friends is just as important for your health as the nutrients it provides.
