Two thirds of people will regain the weight they lost, and most will regain more weight than they lost!
This usually happens because they’re following a diet instead of building a solid foundation of healthy habits into their lifestyle.
Here are three reasons why your diet mindset is failing you.
Too restrictive — if I tell you that you can’t have something, your mind naturally goes to how much you want it and how you can get it. Having a restrictive mindset just isn’t realistic — or fun! Learning to eat to support your goals AND enjoy your lifestyle can be done!
Inconsistency — we’ve all heard of the 80/20 rule. Being super restrictive all week and then letting it rip on the weekends is not 80/20! To move the needle forward, you must be consistently implementing healthy habits.
You aren’t eating enough — when you don’t eat enough, you’re slowing down your metabolism making it harder to lose weight. Plus, it’s no fun to feel hungry all day!
If you’re thinking “I’m making one of these mistakes,” then you’re not alone. We have all been there!
I remember a time when I put pressure on myself to look a certain way. I’ve literally made all of these mistakes. I cut out sweets altogether, but after a few days, I binged. I tried the 80/20 rule, but went off the deep end on the weekends. I restricted my calories and actually gained weight!
