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.

I am watching the Oprah special and I am disheartened by the fact that it’s 8:45 and no one has really emphasized eating right, food allergies and food sensitivities- they are not telling you the true story 💯- please please do your homework! I will be posting more in days to come - yes it is a disease for certain - and certainly some people need this and thankfully it has been researched- However please know that to live longer, make these drugs really work long term and be healthy you HAVE to eat the foods that are right for your individual body type - only a Nutritionist can do that for you! Not sure why the drugs are the only emphasis- shame on you Oprah for not telling the true story about food and nutrition - very disappointed in you!! ... See MoreSee Less

I didn’t even tune in; I’m tired of Oprah embracing every new gimmick by which she loses weight. However, she always gains it back ; that is the real problem. Her record of always gaining back the weight proved she has not discovered the elixir. I doubt there is one. I’ll stick to a qualified, good nutritionist.
