Your Brain On A Diet
I wonder how many calories are in this?
I’m hungry. 😰
When is my next meal?
That cookie looks so good, but I’ll have to wait until my cheat day.
My friend invited me out for drinks, I might as well go all out because I probably won’t be allowed to do this again for a long time.
This can lead you to believe that you're a food addict.
That there is something wrong with you because ALL you can think about is food.
If only you could kick your addiction to sugar/carbs/wine/chocolate/food you would be able to lose weight once and for all right?
I am here to tell you that there is NOTHING wrong with you.
The moment we (as in all humans) restrict ourselves or put ourselves on a diet all we can think about is food.This is how we have survived this long as a species.
Without that obsession with food in moments of deprivation, our ancestors would have never made it their life's work to seek out food, thus we would've gone extinct a long time ago.
Your body doesn't know the difference between a diet and a famine.
It senses the calorie deficit and scarcity of food and triggers several signals that slow down your metabolism and stimulate hunger cues.
This is why diets don't ever work.
Think about in your own experience... how many diets have you been on?
Did you keep off all the weight?
(because if you did, you probably wouldn't be on this email list would you?)
How about the rest of the women in your lives that have been on a diet?
Your mom, auntie, friends, or sister?
Did they keep all of their weight off after their diet?
So you see... it's not you, it's dieting. The diet industry is the only industry that creates and sells methods and products that don't work, but they blame the customer! This seems a little backwards doesn't it?
Imagine buying a television and when you get home the screen stays black. It won't even turn on. Like any normal person, you try to return it at the store, but the clerk says:
"Sorry ma'am. We can't return the tv because it is your fault that it doesn't work."
How long do you think this store would stay in business with a: blame the customer policy?
We have let the diet industry do this to us for years!! It is time to take a stand babe!
Stand up for your health, your self worth. Stand up for your daughters, friends, and mother who are going to get sold this same BS.
Take a stand.
Dieting doesn't work long term, stop buying in!
