The Problem with Dieting

Most diets work.

There, I said it. They work for a while.

They work while you have enough “willpower” to adhere. But you know something about willpower?

It’s finite. We can’t rely on it forever.

If you want a lean, healthy body for the long term, whatever you’re doing today needs to be something you can imagine yourself doing a year from now and beyond.

If you’ve ever had the following thoughts, you’re not alone:

“I’ll be happy when I weigh ___.”

“I’ll be happy when I can fit into a size __.”

“When I finally achieve _, I will go back to eating normally.”

These statements are what I refer to as the DIET MINDSET. It’s short-term focused and unsustainable.

Too often in weight loss, we have a restrictive mindset. We say “I can’t have that!”

But what if we changed our mindset to one of abundance?

What if you thought: “I get to eat all of these beautiful, colorful foods that will nourish my body.” Or, “I CHOOSE not to eat cookies.”

How EMPOWERING is that!?

So, what’s your choice? A short-term mindset of restriction or a long-term mindset of abundance?
