I can’t believe it!
I was so careful this time…
I cleared out all of the junk food from my kitchen.
And I still blew my diet!!!
If you’re a yo-yo dieter, then you’ve certainly felt the frustration reflected in the scene above.
Yo-yo dieters are smart. They’ve done their homework and can easily tell a healthy food from a junky one, and explain how they know the difference.
Yet, despite their level of know-how, yo-yo dieters have trouble following their own better judgment.
When they start a weight loss plan, things go great for the first few weeks (maybe even the first few months), but eventually, the diet implodes and weight that was lost returns as they find themselves back at square one.
Here’s how I see it…
Most yo-yo dieters are hard on themselves.
Some think there’s a physical problem – “There’s something wrong with my body!”
Some think there’s a mental block – “There’s something wrong with my head!”
Some think they have both issues and end up feeling hopeless.
Every way they look at it, the problem is them…they are broken.
That’s simply not true.
And, in this post, I’ll prove it to you.
Yes, there is a physical and a mental component to yo-yo dieting, but the correction for both is not out of your reach, and the fix doesn’t require hours of therapy or a brutal eating routine.
All it takes to stop yo-yo dieting is a better understanding of how food affects you and a few simple tricks to get a fresh perspective.
