The NUMBER ONE TRAP for binge eating is?! Dieting.
Yup Dieting!! 1 in 2 women are dieting right in this moment.
So that brings us to the question, where are all the successful dieters?
I mean where are the ones that lost it on a diet and kept it off?
And furthermore, if so many people are dieting then WHYYYY are we in an OBESITY epidemic?! Its clear something isn’t adding up. . . . . .
Research shows that diets do the opposite of their intended purpose. . . . . .
Research shows that within 4 years, 95% of dieters will GAIN BACK all the weight they lost and 2 of 5 dieters will gain back MORE than they lost. (I was one of those statistics each time I lost over 100lbs) . . . . .
Scientific FACT: Dieting causes people to overeat and
ALL DIETING IS “Yo- yo” dieting in practice. . . . . .
Diet restriction almost ALWAYS leads to binge eating. **When food is restricted binge urges are more frequent and hormonally stronger.
FACT::: Every diet has an equal and opposite binge to counteract.
In the long run, they cause us to gain weight. . . . . .
THIS IS WHY I help people in the first stage of transformation to STOP the dieting madness and embrace a process of transformation to find their optimal weight, end the battle with food and STAY there. . . . . .
Before you try to cut out that extra serving of pasta with dinner or morning sugar laden latte, first think about what you are not eating enough of. Did you eat your 3 cups of veggies yesterday or have lean protein at every meal? If not, first focus on that and you’ll naturally eat less of everything else.
Healthy balanced eating is a math problem. Add up what you’re eating, subtract that from your total needs for the day and see what it is you’re missing. Approaching nutrition this way will help you feel better, stick to your goals longer and finally help you shed those extra pounds you’ve been battling with for several months. And If nothing else, it will get you to eat in more nutrient dense foods! Right? Anyone? 🤓 •
This approach gets you to think more positive and thus makes eating for health or weight loss a lot less stressful!
