Ditch The Diet Mindset
As if you need more convincing, here are some reasons why you need to ditch the diet mindset and start living!
Better For Your Health
The diets don't work. Plain and simple. Instead, they offer you the shiny proposal of fast weight loss, as long as you do not eat anything but eggs, or drink anything but wine. However, a lifestyle change gives you the tools needed to lose weight naturally and slowly, without giving anything up. Your health will improve as you lose and as begin to eat healthier foods. You will save yourself the headaches, frustrations, and larger health risks associated with fad diets and yo-yo dieting.
Better For You
Your health is very important. However, just as important as your health is your wellbeing. Your thoughts, your feelings, and your complete emotional health are also at stake.
By changing your lifestyle, you can affect your emotional health positively instead of negatively.
Losing weight and maintaining that loss is likely to improve your life in numerous ways.
A study of participants in the National Weight Control Registry found that subjects who were able to maintain a significant weight loss improved not only their physical health, but also mobility, energy levels and self-confidence. If you wake up feeling lethargic or perhaps even depressed, you may need a lifestyle change.
If your self-confidence is wavering due to your weight or simply the need to be healthier, you may need a lifestyle change. Weight management is better for you and your health.
You will benefit overall from ditching the temporary diet mindset and focusing on changing your eating habits for the long term.
If you are ready to make this decision, know that you will not be let down. It will not happen overnight, but you will feel better as soon as you begin, and every day thereafter.
Remember: It is not about a diet to lose, it is about a lifetyle change to gain.
