Why Your Diet Could Be Working Against You

Tagged with: diet, exercise, losing weight, weight loss

Jennifer is a middle-aged single mother with a young daughter. She has been avoiding sugary foods for a few weeks now. And she also faithfully watched her portions. She also worked out 4 times a week for an hour. However, she hasn’t lost weight and doesn’t know why. This is not uncommon. You may be doing everything you can to lose weight but don’t seem to be making any progress. As a result, you feel frustrated or depressed and ready to give up. One problem is that many diets are homogeneous. They do not take into account the physiology, metabolism and lifestyle of the individual. They are a standard approach to weight loss that doesn’t work in most cases. Therefore, seeking the services of a registered dietitian may be the best solution.

This can be done in person or over the Internet, where you can contact your nutritionist via email at any time of the day or night. Your nutritionist will be your personal coach and cheerleader, helping you through the inevitable setbacks. Lack of support is a big reason why diets often fail. You may feel like you have no one to talk to about your weight problems. When this is the case, some people go to psychotherapists to help them with their diet-related problems. This can be very helpful, especially if a person suffers from an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Bulimia and anorexia are serious illnesses that need to be treated by a doctor to ensure the patient’s recovery. Hidden calories in the foods we eat are another pitfall of diets. Often we consume calories and don’t even know it. Sugary drinks like sodas and fruit juices are a common source of unnecessary calories. By switching to diet drinks or drinking water and replacing

whole milk with skim milk, you can eliminate the hidden calories that are keeping you from reaching your weight loss goals. Yo-yo dieting is another problem. You may start a diet and then stop before you’ve made any measurable progress because you get bored or feel deprived. Healthy weight loss is often not quick and only involves losing a few pounds per week. Maintaining a positive attitude and sticking to a healthy eating plan is the key to losing weight. Lifestyle changes are part of successful diet and exercise. Avoid eating for comfort or emotional fulfillment. Changing the way you eat takes a lifelong commitment. This means you have to follow the plan for the long term. Find a diet plan that is healthy and that you can stick to. While your main goal may be to lose weight, you should also focus on being healthy. Fad diets can’t give you both. For this reason, you need to choose your diet plan carefully.
