Ooooo fad diets wind me up 😡

Juice diets, the Atkins diet, the Dukan diet, any detox diet, the cabbage soup diet, The Fast 800, low-carb diets – even Keto (in the vast majority of cases!)

Pick one, there are dozens out there 🤷🏻‍♂️

Now I’m NOT saying fad diets don’t work … they absolutely can

ANY diet that creates a calorie deficit will work

What I’m saying that they WON’T work long term

I’m also saying that they WON’T empower us with new knowledge & habits

Why? 🤔

Because they’re typically overly rigid, prescriptive & unenjoyable ❌

Their success is often dependent on perseverance & willpower alone

People tend to “suffer” through them …

… and then return to their old eating habits 🤷🏻‍♂️

The SAME old eating habits that caused them to gain unwanted fat in the first place!

And, sure enough, the pounds soon start to pile back on

Then what? … ahh yes, another diet 😂

Repeat… repeat… repeat… Sound familiar? 🙈

What typically ensues is an endless cycle of frustration between unsustainable quick fixes on the one hand, and old unhelpful eating habits on the other

Progress is rarely sustained. Control is rarely gained.

And, what’s more, because – let’s face it – yoyo dieting can be physically & emotionally exhausting, our quality of life can take a pummelling

But it DOESN’T need to be this way 🙌

Instead of looking for the next quick fix, long-term success means shifting our focus to sustainable lifestyle change

When we acquire new knowledge & skills – and develop new habits …

We empower ourselves to make changes that we can actually stick to!

Ones that we’ll enjoy; ones that can accommodate the food we love; ones that can flex around our favourite activities’ and ones that will keep us consistent for years to come!

The upshot? 🤔

You’ll never need to go on a “diet” again 😉

Fad diets really are the ULTIMATE short-term solution

Stay awesome & keep going! ✌️
