Seriously… stop it!
Stop dieting…stop the on again, off again diet bandwagon.
Stop New Years Resolutions and Stop punishing yourself with bad
habits and fad diets.
You can lose weight without giving up everything you love. You can change your lifestyle without spending hours in the kitchen or gym and you can love your body again. You just need to know some stuff and have some support.
I know this because I teach this and then I get to see the wonderful transformations when mummies stop dieting…
Did you know that…
1. …Fad dieting is based on marketing- the newest diet on the market with the best adverts on TV or the best looking packaging on the shelf.
It’s the short cut, the quick fix and has little if not anything to do with health.
In this way, you need to ask yourself?
Do I want a quick fix or do I want to be a healthy role model to my family?
Getting rid of stubborn belly fat is a result of what you eat, not how much you eat. This was the biggest struggle for me as a new mummy and well, as a woman wanting to look good.
Belly Fat. The Spare tyre. The Muffin Top.
This is often the area most women fret about and that is because it is often the hardest to shift. I have always struggled with my muffin top and the only area I hold fat. It was only in this last year that I realised it was about what I was eating not how much I was eating.
A flat stomach is really 70% diet and 30% exercise.
There are foods you can avoid or reduce and there are items you need to add and increase. And then there is exercise and I’m not talking crunches here. There are specific exercises to build the core area and it is really simple. It just takes understanding, commitment and determination but anyone can get that washboard stomach.
Good nutrition is so important in getting and maintaining a flat stomach and also in terms of your metabolism and overcoming those cravings.
2. … Research now proves that Being on a ‘Diet’ Actually Doesn’t Help You Eat Less.
The evidence for why “diet” should be considered a four-letter word just continues to accumulate: Being on a diet has little effect on how many calories you actually consume, a new study in the journal Appetite suggests.
The researchers assessed the food attitudes of 1,113 people—for example, how restrictive they were about eating and whether they wanted to eat more healthfully—and tracked their snack intake for a week. (Snacks are often a better gauge of dieting behavior than meals, the scientists say.) Not surprisingly, 63 percent of the women identified as dieters, but their concern with cutting back didn’t seem to translate to eating significantly less food: The restrained eaters did consume slightly more healthy snacks and fewer unhealthy snacks than non-dieters, but the association was only weak.
For some people, simply possessing a diet book had a similar effect (or lack of effect): The study participants who’d bought a diet book in the past year were less likely to reduce their food intake than other people, suggesting that making the purchase was enough to make them feel as if they’d fulfilled their intention to slim down.
What’s going on? Being on a “diet” may actually be more of a mental state—a reflection of a troubled relationship with eating and food—rather than a true intention to consume less. As the scientists say, “The self-proclaimed status as dieter bears few implications for actual consumption. … People may become obsessed with regulating their eating behavior without having the actual intent or the skills to do something about it.”
How often a week do you say:
I can’t I’m on a diet …
or my favourite…
I won’t have that- I’m being good
What has my goodness as a human being got to do with how much, how little or what I am eating!??
So, how do we lose weight, feel better and get the shape we want and keep it off, without being on a diet?
The answer is: Nutritionally Rebalancing.
