"The average dieter successfully loses weight... ... and then successfully regains it all back plus more"
Managing your weight can be tricky and often there is the pressure of losing the excessive weight to become healthier. But the reality is, (and research states) weight is NOT a factor that determines health. Your lifestyle actions do. When you actively pursue weight loss and experience the yoyo effect of dieting, the long term effects are detrimental to your health. The complete opposite outcome from what you originally intended. Disordered eating patterns can become entrenched and normalised, leading you to constantly restrict and/or overeat as you chase the next miracle fad diet and start the weight loss journey all over again.
The physical and emotional toll dieting takes on your body is huge. All that time you spend keeping yourself ‘on the track’ and all those times you beat yourself up when you’re not is exhausting. Not to mention a total waste of time and a constant reminder you’re not good enough. But what if it could be different? A move towards intuitive, mindful eating principles will help you to tune into the physical, emotional and mental messages your body is trying to send you. It’s also about challenging the external rules and disordered eating thoughts that have become so ingrained, and giving you back the clarity to know and trust what your body needs when it needs it.
