By Erika Fehrenbach Prell
Ready for the BIG secret to diets? They. Don’t. Work.
Ouch. I’m sorry to break that one to you, DreamChaser. But, that’s not the best kept secret...the secret the billion dollar diet industry doesn’t want you to know. Before I get to that, I want your buy-in to ditch the diet because the BIG secret requires a BIG shift in thinking. Let’s get to it!
Get this, studies have shown time and time again that most people gain back any lost weight from diets in 1 to 5 years. By most people, I am talking at least 80%! Know what else? It doesn’t matter which diet you select, the results are the same across the board. This rebound effect is caused by many things but the 5 consistent reasons why diets fail are the following:
So, why do we still jump on the diet train? The answer is simple, but you might not like it...I sure didn’t, lol. We, you and I, want immediate results without doing the work. A magic potion that poofs us into whatever healthy state we desire, which is what diets often promise. Sigh...the classic case of “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”.
Now, are you ready for the BIG secret? For all the reasons we have already addressed, diets just aren’t the solution for a healthy lifestyle. So what is? Making simple and consistent exchanges in your daily life, swapping an unhealthy option for a healthier option mixed with time will result in you becoming your healthiest self. It’s really that simple, without the drastic measures. Just picking one small thing to change at a time in a positive, healthier way. Getting on the right track isn’t as hard as you think. Here’s where to start!
That’s your homework for this month, DreamChaser! Work to ditch the diet mindset and embrace your healthy lifestyle journey, one that will be a sustainable lifestyle rather than a short term band aid approach. Pick one small healthier change to focus one, like exchanging soda for water or walking 10 minutes every day. Commit to sticking with it. Stay tuned for more health and wellness support next month! Let’s get started, and, as always, Shine On!
