Lasting Weight Loss: Be Kind to Yourself

Show Notes

One of the most detrimental things we can do to our bodies is “go on a diet.” You, me, the person sitting next to you, even your dog or cat are all already on a diet. Your diet is the collection of your eating habits. It encompasses how you make food choices, which choices you make, how much you eat, and whether or not you address your food feelings.

It’s not failure

We didn’t evolve as humans with a penchant for eating healthy foods. We evolved as a species by eating nutrient dense foods to survive.

Start with Kindness

One of the most detrimental aspects of modern dieting is the toll it takes on your self-esteem. Your body is biologically driven to survive.

Take a breath and think clearly

If you find yourself having one of those internal monologues or conversations with your inner voice, and what you’re hearing is hurtful and mean, it’s time to take a minute and step back. The basic truth is that most of us could do with some adjustment to our bodies – or at least we think we could.

What we need more of though, are healthier interpersonal relationships, healthy intrapersonal relationships, and a little personal kindness and acceptance of who we are.

There’s nothing more important to your wellbeing than loving who you are right now!
