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.
