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.

Toni's Famous Detox Veggie Soup

Snow storms are the perfect time to make yourself a good hearty soup to snack on all day - if you don't have the following ingredients, any veggies (even frozen) can make an excellent soup and remember, veggies help keep your metabolism up and running!!

Detox Vegetable Soup Recipe

4 Containers either Low Sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth - Organic
(Fill each container 1/4 with water and add that to soup)
1 bunch parsley - cleaned and chopped without stems
1 bunch scallions - cleaned and cut up
1 large head cauliflower cut up
1 large yellow onion sliced
4 zucchini cut up into 1/4 inch circles
3 large carrots cut into 1/4 inches circles
4 stalks of celery with leaves cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 lb string beans cut into small pieces
1 large package of frozen chopped spinach - thawed
Salt and pepper to taste
Put broth in large pot with carrots, celery, parsley, onions and scallions. Salt and pepper to taste - after 15 minutes add cauliflower. After another 15 minutes add the rest of the veggies. Cook until desired tenderness. I put the cauliflower in first since it will break up into pieces and make the soup thicker and creamier.
This recipe makes a thicker soup - for a thinner soup you can add one more container of broth or water.
