Will Your Diet Fail?

Updated: Feb 19, 2022

There are more and more diet plans being pushed each month, which in itself shows us that majority of them just don’t work.


If a diet plan includes any of the following, then do yourself a favour and turn the other way:⠀

1️⃣ Claiming you will lose a certain amount of weight.

Every body and lifestyle is different; meaning not even the most successful plan there is could ever promise a general set result. Any diet doing this is focusing on their marketing, not your health.⠀


2️⃣ Insisting you can never eat a particular food (unless you have an allergy).

There’s room for every food, in moderation, in a healthy diet. If a diet plan deems any food as “off limits” then it’s setting you up for an unhealthy relationship with food and it’s interest in your long term or mental health is questionable. Steer clear.⠀


3️⃣ Claiming that a particular food will reduce fat (or one will make you gain weight)

Fat is lost by being in a caloric deficit, and foods themselves can not burn fat. Your body decides where you will lose fat first no matter what you do or eat. There is no food (or exercise) that targets fat loss in a certain area, and there is equally no food that will make you gain weight. These claims are just lies.⠀

4️⃣ The diet hasn’t considered you, as an individual.

Your lifestyle has a huge impact on your needs and success. So if the plan doesn’t even know who you are then how does it know what you need? Also avoid diet plans that don’t adjust as you progress - As you change, your needs do too. A plan that doesn’t consider this is only interested in an immediate before and after shot, not your long term progress. ⠀


5️⃣ It’s bland and repetitive.

It’s so easy to put people on a restrictive diet of the same 3 meals, with the only focus being the calories. Nutrients in the right proportions are what our bodies need to function in every way, and we cannot get them all when eating the same few meals on repeat. Run a mile from a plan that offers little variety as it can cause long term health issues.⠀

 

Keep these red flags in mind so you’re not fooled down a path that improves someone else’s bank balance rather than your own long term health.

Chose a whole and healthy, realistic and sustainable diet that’s more than a trend.


If you need help creating that, I’m just a message away!
