Lasting Weight Loss: Ditch the Diet Mentality

Show Notes

The word diet has come to refer to a method of restrictive eating habits aimed at losing or gaining weight. This is largely because the ideas of what a “healthy” body looks like, or how a “healthy” body should be shaped has changed in the last 50 years or so.

We’re overly serious about diet restriction!

The diet mentality is a way of processing nutritional choices through dysfunctional corrections.

Could diet mentality be all wrong?

The problem is that diets in this form don’t work. Sure. In the short-term you might lose those extra pounds, but in the long-term, they’ll return.

What’s a diet, really?

A “Diet” is really the whole and entirely collected pattern of your eating habits. Our physical health is intricately linked to the food choices we make. Your diet is your eating patterns in their entirety.

Time to change the diet mentality

Instead of buying into it at your great expense, look toward changing your way of approaching your overall diet, and physical well-being.

“When we reject diets and diet culture, we learn that our bodies have amazing internal wisdom. They can tell us how much to eat, when to stop and what foods make us feel most energized.” ~Christine Byrne
