In our super-sized culture, everyone is looking for a good diet that works and that they can stick to. After all, what good is a diet that helps you lose weight, but forces you to starve yourself and only eat certain foods. I want to share 3 reasons with you why you should never go on another diet, ever again!
#1 – Diets Never Stick
Diets are never a long term solution to maintaining a healthy, normal lifestyle. When is the last time you heard of someone that had been on the same diet, successfully, for over 5, 10, or 20 years? Diets are more of a fad than an actual solution to anything. Every year some ‘guru’ comes out with a new diet that is supposed to deliver the best results with the most satisfaction.
The only problem is that people rarely stick to any of these so-called diets and just regress back to where they were, or worse! And everyone thinks it’s their fault! If you’ve failed a diet before, it’s not your fault. The human body is not meant to never eat carbs or live on cabbage soup. God created our bodies in such a way that we can eat anything and still maintain our weight. So how do we do it?
#2 – Stop Dieting, Change The Way You Think
In our modern day, food is way too easy to come by. You can go get fast food or nuke a frozen dinner in the microwave in just a few minutes. Because it is so easy to get, we often eat when we shouldn’t, and that is why so many people are overweight today.
You have to understand that our bodies are very well crafted machines. When we experience pain or discomfort, that means we need something. Headaches, for example, are a warning sign that our body is low on a certain vitamin. When we get hungry, that means we need to eat something. However, this is where we go all wrong. Instead of counting calories or not eating carbs, try only eating when you’re hungry. And don’t stuff yourself! When you feel lethargic and full, that means you have eaten too much! Your stomach is about as big as your fist, so keep that in mind when your eating a double cheeseburger, super-sized fry and soda.
