Does the good cause the bad? (how to shift from the dieting mindset)

Have you ever had that ‘one’ last blowout on all the foods you love before starting a new diet?
Me, too…

Peanut butter. Bread. Cereal. Pizza. Cake. Biscuits. Pringles. Avocados (if you are into syns))

You name it..

And it’s not uncommon for some of the ladies who I’ve worked with to tell me how they eat their kids chocolates and have to replace them (multiple times) before this ‘new diet’ comes along..

Or they say things like:

‘I’ll have to have to get rid of all of the chocolates in the cupboard before I start, Matt”…​​​​

You see, you are NOT ALONE..

even though you probably know from reading my stuff that NO FOOD IS OFF LIMITS…

It is only human nature to associate a new diet with scarcity / deprivation.

​​Which results in you 
thinking that you need to stock up.

They term it ‘The Last Supper Effect”

​​With research showing that when they tell people that they are about to go on a diet?

​​they gain weight in the time they were told about the diet and the time to start.

So where does this come from?

Well, it’s the ‘diet’ culture.

They tell you to restrict certain foods. That foods are bad.

That you have to suffer…​​

So what’s the way around this?

Well, the research shows to STOP restricting foods. 

(for most people)​​

The most ironic part for me is how restricting so called ‘bad’ foods to be healthier…results in behaviours, like binging, which are actually worse for your health…

​​In fact, some of the ladies I work with mention how they just eat anything and everything when they start a diet. 

Even foods they wouldn’t normally eat…

And I’m not saying this whole thing is easy..

But it doesn’t have to be harder than it needs to me…

As in my experience with working with the amazing ladies on our programme (such as these ladies here)

The ones that get the best results are the ones that understand it is ok to not be perfect

and don’t let that derail their day, week and month​​​​…

So they can stick to something for long enough to see the results they finally want

In how they look and feel.​​​​

And speaking of which

Our 4-Week kickstart programme opens up again soon.

If you would like more info on this, just press reply with the subject line ‘4 week’ and I’ll get you the details. ​​
