Diet Alternatives: Because Diets Don’t Work
As you probably have learned the hard way, most diets with their one-size-fits-all approach simply don’t work. You are an individual with individual nutritional needs. What works for one person most often doesn’t work for another, and yet most diet programs are based on this cookie-cutter principle.
Diets based on buying prepared foods are expensive and don’t work either. Eventually, you run out of money and/or you simply get sick of eating frozen entrees or out of vacuum-sealed packages. Everyone starts eating real food again and then the weight comes right back on. That’s because knowing what and how to eat in the real world is a challenge for so many people and these programs provide very little if any real-world guidance.

These diet programs simply don’t account for your individual nutritional or behavioral needs. They might weigh you weekly, but do they help you navigate your choices in restaurants, at parties or in the grocery store?
Are they there for you when you slip and when you’re rationalizing your sabotage? You know those self-defeating thoughts…”Well, since I blew my diet today anyway, I might as well have that brownie sundae too.”
Most diet programs simply don’t address one of the biggest issues related to weight loss: Identifying and addressing underlying emotional issues related to food and eating and they don’t help you change your self-defeating thought patterns.
Diet and exercise won’t work unless you change your thoughts about food and eating.
