End the Diet Cycle!

The word dieting has been around for a very long time. It was developed to help us fight the growing problem of obesity. Today, this problem has become an epidemic. My concern is, does dieting actually help us? The answer is no, as the dieting cycle is never ending and it gets more and more difficult to get out of it.

What is the Diet Cycle?

Any fad or extreme food trend followed with the intention to lose weight is called a diet (think of all the possible diets you have ever heard of!)

Is this something you see yourself doing?

Do you feel this could be you?

If yes, then it’s time for you to gain control!

 

Start by including healthy options as a habit, a simple way to do this is by focusing on the things you can eat more of:

• Fruits
• Vegetables
• Drinking more water

This along with increased physical activity should be our focus.

Enjoy all foods in moderation and without guilt. If we create a positive association with food and pay attention to our bodies cues, we will have a much better understanding of our body and what it needs, not wants! We will be able to make lifelong positive healthy changes by learning what makes us feel healthier and happier.
