Dieting Only Treats 50% Of The Problem
You may have tried every diet, group programmes and every ounce of your willpower yet nothing has worked for you.
You find you are great for a while but then you lose motivation and quit usually after a slip.
You think to yourself, it’s Friday I’ve had a really hard week and I deserve a treat. Saturday comes when you think what the heck I’ve ruined my diet now anyway, I’ll just get back on track on Monday.
Monday Never Comes
Then as we know Monday never comes. Now after lunch you find you’ve put all the weight back on and you’re back to square one again. What follows is that an awful automatic emotional feeling of guilt, And negative self talk that tells you “you’re no good “, “you can’t stick to anything “.
Dieting In Itself Is Not The Answer
So why is it that you know what to do how to eat well, but you still seem to be stuck on that rollercoaster of up-and-down weight loss/weight gain.
Because dieting only treats 50% of the problem. If dieting by itself worked no one would be overweight. In order to reach and maintain your weight long-term there needs to be two treatments.
1. You need to follow a healthy eating plan tailored to your needs.
2. You need to understand and address WHY you overeat in the first place. You need to look at the emotional triggers at the root cause of your ways. You may eat in response to stress, anxiety or when you’re bored.
It’s not just what you eat it’s WHY.
“We are creatures of habit. Approximately 90% of all our behaviours, thoughts and emotions are automatic.” This quote from Dr Larocque’s book “Be Slim From Within” sums up beautifully the importance of understanding yourself before permanent success in any area of life can be achieved.
You have to make sense of WHY you act in a certain way about certain things in particular circumstances.
How Motivation Works
