The Anti-Dieting Approach
to Losing Weight
Most people are starting to accept the idea that “diets” — the kind you go on and then off of — don’t work in the long run. In fact, reports now show that about 90 to 95 percent of all diets fail! (1) One of the ironies behind failed diets and yo-yo dieting is that, ultimately, some diets make you fat.
Meanwhile, people tend to blame themselves, feeling like a lack of willpower, no self-control and bad genetics are the reasons they can’t lose weight. Sometimes they blame themselves so much that they stop eating and enter into a dangerous starvation mode rather than adopt a more healthful approach like mindful eating.
Along the lines of more healthful approaches to eating comes “Intuitive Eating”: an emerging approach to sustainable healthy eating and body acceptance. Intuitive eaters believe that the blame shouldn’t be put on “dieters” themselves, but instead on the flawed process of dieting. According to dozens of studies, this approach seems promising and a “realistic alternative to address overweight and obesity than conventional weight-loss treatments.” (2)
Do you experience yo-yo diets? Failing at one diet and looking to another to “do the trick”. Unfortunately, there is no one trick to loosing weight and keeping it off. It’s a lifestyle decision. Love and accepting yourself fully is the first step in health and wellness.
