Most diets work.
There, I said it. They work for a while.
They work while you have enough “willpower” to adhere. But you know something about willpower?
It’s finite. We can’t rely on it forever.
If you want a lean, healthy body for the long term, whatever you’re doing today needs to be something you can imagine yourself doing a year from now and beyond.
If you’ve ever had the following thoughts, you’re not alone:
“I’ll be happy when I weigh ___.”
“I’ll be happy when I can fit into a size __.”
“When I finally achieve _, I will go back to eating normally.”
These statements are what I refer to as the DIET MINDSET. It’s short-term focused and unsustainable.
Too often in weight loss, we have a restrictive mindset. We say “I can’t have that!”
But what if we changed our mindset to one of abundance?
What if you thought: “I get to eat all of these beautiful, colorful foods that will nourish my body.” Or, “I CHOOSE not to eat cookies.”
How EMPOWERING is that!?
So, what’s your choice? A short-term mindset of restriction or a long-term mindset of abundance?
