The answer is: It is all about establishing Healthy Eating Habits
If you do an Amazon search of diet books you will get 151,119 options to choose from. Crazy, right? No wonder it’s so hard for people to lose weight. The billion dollar “diet” industry doesn’t have your back; they just want your money.
If you search what’s trending in the diet world these days, you’ll get a pop-up with ….yup, The 5 foods you should never eat. I suffered through a few lengthy on-line presentations to find out what exactly the 5 foods you should never eat are. Of course they leave you hanging while they try to sell you their diet program, but if you’re willing to listen for about 15 minutes they’ll share the foods:
- whole wheat bread
- agave nectar
- almond milk, and
- frozen yogurt
- … from one source.
Artificial sweeteners, whole wheat bread, soy milk, orange juice, and margarine … from another source.
Orange juice, margarine, whole wheat bread, processed soy, and genetically modified corn … from yet another source.
Not done yet: whole wheat bread, fruit juice, granola, sports drinks, and organic junk food from another source.
The truth is: There is really no secret to successfully losing weight.
It’s all about focus and adherence. But why then do most dieters fail?
Many people try, on average, 4 or 5 times to lose weight during the year. They’ll diet jump from one fad diet to the next. Fad diets are only meant for a short period of time and are only good for short-term results. I guess this is fine if all you want is to look stunning at your daughter’s wedding!
If you want real, lasting results, you need to make “lifestyle” changes. Say goodbye to the crash diets, and trying to make too many changes at once.
“I’m going to quit smoking, exercise 2 hours a day, and
never eat any sweets until I lose 50 pounds!”
Does this ever work? No. Then you beat yourself up while you’re sitting in front of the TV with a gallon of ice cream. No bowl. Just you and a gallon of ice cream and probably a spoon.
A more successful and proven approach would be to tackle one healthy item at a time; make it a habit and build upon those newly formed habits until major and lasting changes occur.
This requires the 3 Ss: Structure, Systems, and Scheduling.
Structure: Daily or weekly routines that organize you.
Systems: The processes we use to make things happen.
Scheduling: Book an appointment; make fitness and
nutrition a priority; put it in your calendar.
Let’s get back to the basics. Our mothers and grandmothers knew how to feed their families without “searching the web.” It’s about time we take back food and let the scientists and food marketers keep their “scientifically“ engineered “nutrients.”
