5 Steps of the Diet CycleApr 15, 2019
I'm so glad you're here!
If you're new to my space it's important that you know that I'm a huge advocate for ending the dieting culture. You know what I mean.. the fad diets, calorie restriction, eliminating entire foods groups, labeling foods "good" or "bad".. I could go on forever.
But I know how hard this can be since it's been ingrained into us our entire lives. We see it in the news, in the media, on billboards, on the radio.. it preys on us daily.
Unfortunately, dieting keeps you stuck, unhappy and decreases your odds of actually achieving your goals.
Here's the 5 steps of the diet cycle:
1. DESIRE TO BE SKINNY
You wake up, look in the mirror and decide you're unhappy. Because of societal beliefs, your first inclination is to go on a diet and lose weight.
You begin some sort of diet, eating style, detox, weight loss regimen, etc that you saw online. You're excited to get started!
3. LOSS OF CONTROL, CRAVINGS, & MOTIVATION
You do well for a while, but your new style of dieting is too rigid. It's no longer fun, the motivation is gone.
4. FALL OFF "PLAN" / OVEREAT
You can't take it anymore. You're miserable, you're hungry, and you have no energy. You reach for any and all the things you have been restricting. Candy, cookies, fast food, ice cream.. you name it!
5. REGAIN WEIGHT + MORE
You wake up with regret, no plan, and discouraged. Within time, you'll likely start this cycle over.
Sounds exhausting, right? This is no way to live.
I'll tell you the same thing I tell my clients, "You already have everything inside of you to succeed. It's time for you to take back your control."
If you're feeling stuck and unsure of your next steps, this is a great opportunity to get back to the 6 core elements I outline in my FREE guide, Balancing The Basics. Simply choose one & make that your focus this week. Slow and steady, girl!
