There are a few diets I applaud…Atkin’s,South Beach,& Adrenal Reset Diet. You’ll actually thrive on any of those 3. Why aren’t I on 1 of those? Cuz I don’t have a stove & can’t properly cook a variety of delicious foods. All I have is a microwave oven.
Any strict diets sets you up to fail & remain fat. There are rules,restrictions,portion control,good & bad foods,extreme limitation,deprivation,& boredom. You cheat,feel guilty,punish yourself. You live your life thinking about food,planning meals,meauring,counting calories,aware of fat,sugar,& sodium content,eating,but not really enjoying your food,weighing & measuring yourself…boring exercise…& eventually you can’t take anymore & you quit…& start another diet. You eat whatever the diet tells you to eat,even if you hate it. You are suffering & sacrificing to be slender. You are most certainly going to fail & not reach your goal weight.
We all have emotions that want to be fed with comfort foods. My comfort foods are mac n cheese,fried chicken,cheeseburgers,chocolate ice cream,& more. If you starve your emotions by depriving yourself & only eating diet foods…well…you are going to end up on a full-blown binge…& end up quitting. Thus,if you feel the need to be on a diet…fine…but allow yourself 2 cheat days a week. I have 3 cheat days a week. During those 3 days I enjoy the comfort foods I love,using the hunger scale,so no gorging & stuffing. I am also using the Jon Gabriel Method to lose weight. I’m not on a diet.
