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.

A Customized Eating Plan and One-On-One Support

So what is the answer to losing weight and keeping it off?

The answer is a personalized eating plan designed exclusively for you by me, a nutritionist and weight loss consultant with over 20 years of professional experience. As someone who has lost over 110 pounds and has kept it off for 30 years, I know the physical and emotional toll that being overweight has on you. I know what it feels like to be worn down by dieting. I also know how hard it is to go it alone. (Read more about my weight-loss story.)

So stop tormenting yourself and don’t go it alone! I will provide you with a customized eating plan and the on-going education and support you need to finally get the weight off and keep it off forever.

5 Things that happen when you QUIT SUGAR.......

1. Better Energy: Sugar prevents our body’s ability to maintain standard energy levels. Your body's energy level is best fed using proteins, not sugars!

2. Stabilizes Weight: Sugar will only make you crave for more, making you consume a high amount of empty calories. A sugar detox can help prevent consuming unnecessary calories. This will help stabilize weight and reduce any fluctuation.

3. Better Bowel Movements: Sugars are hard to process and their removal will better your bowel movements. This will also help improve metabolism and help aid in burning body fat more efficiently.

4. Kills Sugar Cravings: When you isolate your body of sugar, you become more sensitive to it and start enjoying the sugar in fruits. This will also kill the sugar craving, especially for the processed ones.

5. Healthier Skin: It's proven over the years that quitting high sugar intake results in better looking and feeling skin. As we get older, hormones get in the way of good skin. By eliminating sugar and eating more protein, your skin will be healthier!

Let me set the record straight

Sugar in and of itself isn’t evil, per se. It occurs naturally in plenty of foods, including fruits, milk, healthy starches and even your veggies. With that being said, adding excess sugar to your dietary intake simply isn’t necessary. Your body was not born craving sugar. As a matter of fact, we are born with more of a sour craving - sugar cravings are learned behavior!

Having trouble navigating these difficult times? Call Toni today at 201-224-5973 and let her help you navigate your way through your Health and Weight Loss goals!! She is offering in office, FaceTime, WhatsApp Chat and phone sessions..........
