Restrictive dieting strategies set us up for failure in the long run.
ANY restrictive diet will have a yo-yo effect. When you deprive your body of the nutrition it needs, it keeps track. Once you go off the so-called diet, your body knows what it was lacking and your willpower is just no match. Again, it’s NOT your fault. This is why diets don’t work long-term, not to mention the damage that can be done to your health with overly restrictive diets. If only we knew this years ago!
When you combine a significant increase in hunger with a significant decrease in metabolism you create the conditions for massive failure.
– Michael Alvear, Eat it Later
Watching calories alone does not equate to healthy eating and balanced nutrition. We should place a strong emphasis on making food choices that feed our body on a cellular level, not just counting calories. When the focus is solely on counting calories, the focus is on a number rather than the value of nutrition.
Keep a food journal instead, tracking things like how many fruits/veggies you’re eating, if you’re getting enough protein and carbs for fuel and if you’re consuming an adequate amount of healthy fats. It helps you become more conscious of what you’re eating and how different foods may affect you. Journaling can help you make better choices and plan your meals accordingly.
The important thing is to not obsess over the number on the scale and do not weigh yourself more than once a week! Don’t worry about where you’re starting. You may not like where you are right now, but the only thing that matters is the direction you’re going.
