Discover The Missing Link In Weight Loss!
Diets don?t work!!!
We all know this to be a fact but we still keep looking for the next new diet to try.
Some diets have been around for years and are still going strong. I?m not talking about diet plans but silly little diets.
Take the Cabbage Soup Diet for instance. This diet has been around for at least 15 years that I know of. Does it work? Yes it works. As long as you are eating only cabbage soup you will lose weight.
The problem is you can?t just eat cabbage soup for the rest of your life. Or maybe you can but it?s not likely that you will. Eventually you have to go off this diet. You start eating like you used to eat and the pounds gradually climb back on.
Other diets like the rice diet, the oatmeal diet, the raw foods diet, the low carb diet, the high carb diet, and any other diet you can think of will also work. They work as long as you are dieting. Why do they work? Because you are controlling the amount of calories you consume. Even if the diet says eat as much of the food as you want, you can only eat so much rice before you get tired of it. So you naturally eat less and less.
These diets try to make you think the foods are special and have magic properties that make you lose weight. There are no secret foods that will draw the fat from your cells. There are no forbidden foods either. All foods are ok to eat as long as you are eating because you are hungry.
As soon as you stop the diet, you are right back where you started from.
So if diets don?t work, and you know they don?t, what do you do if you want to take off the weight?
You have to change your bad eating habits.
Fact: If you are overweight it is because you have eating habits that are causing you to eat more than you body needs. (Unless you have a medical condition, of course. Most of us don?t.)
Many of these habits started when you were a child. Finishing everything on your plate is one big bad habit. Hurrying through your meal is another. Eating on the go will always add extra pounds. Eating out of boredom, eating while you watch TV, eating socially, these are all going to make you bigger.
Eating was meant as a means to sustain life. We must eat to live. Most overweight people will eat for any reason or no reason at all. Nothing else to do? Let?s eat! Need to kill a little time? Have a snack! Watching TV? Grab a bowl of ice cream.
If you break these bad habits, you will lose weight. Make food a necessary part of your life rather than the only driving force and you will lose weight.
If you decide to go on a diet, you will increase you obsession for food. You will think of nothing but food. You will cheat because you can and you deserve it and you are the boss of you and for many other reasons. Don?t go on a diet! You will only get fatter!
Learn how to make eating a normal function in your life and you will be the right size for you. How are you going to do that? Change those old, defeating habits into new, helpful habits. It?s as simple as that. Eat when you are hungry and eat what you want to eat. Just do it right.
