If you’re like most people who have tried diets, you’ve come to realize that dieting for weight loss simply isn’t a long term solution. Just some of the reasons why:
Yes, you may lose weight, but the fact is that the vast majority who lose weight by dieting will regain it in 1-5 years. Being that dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan, it won’t work in the long run. Moreover, the deprivation of restrictive diets may lead to a diet-overeat or diet-binge cycle. And since your body doesn’t want you to starve, it responds to overly-restrictive diets by slowing your metabolism which, of course, makes it harder to lose weight.
Fad diets can be harmful. For example, they may lack essential nutrients. Moreover, they teach you nothing about healthy eating. Subsequently, when you’ve completed your fad diet, you simply boomerang back to the unhealthy eating patterns that caused your weight gain in the first place. This is the beginning of “yo-yo dieting,” which can bring its own health problems in its wake.
Overly restrictive diets can take all the pleasure out of eating. There’s no reason to lose your appetite and the foods you love in order to lose weight!
Dieting, along with the frequent and compulsive weighing that accompanies it, can lead to eating disorders. Studies have shown that people who diet are eight times as likely to develop an eating disorder as those who don’t.
