In a recent episode of 20/20, Losing the Big Fat Trap, several fad diets were highlighted including the most recent and ludicrous of all: The Tube in Your Nose Diet. The show started by examining several celebrity diets that we all have read about or seen. What was the most interesting to me were the big bucks these celebs were being paid to lose weight as a spokesperson for a particular diet program. What a motivation! I think we could all stick to a diet long-term if were being paid big bucks. The truth is all of these fad diets work “temporarily,” but most of them can’t be done long term. Aren’t we, as women, tired of the back and forth dieting? I don’t know about you, but I am too busy to follow a restricted food plan and keep up with all of the diet trends. For just a minute, can you stop wondering if the latest diet will work for you? Can you throw out the hope that “this diet” is the answer for your quick weight loss? Let’s focus on what really matters with our body and eating. Control and Confidence In working with many women to create a fitness and food design for their lifestyle, I have learned that most women are tired of letting their weight and food control their mind. Many women feel it keeps them from focusing on what really matters in life. They have missed out on opportunities with friends and family because of the lack of confidence in their body. They do not want to be imprisoned to a “diet.” What they want is to have control and confidence in what they are eating. Peace and Contentment Can we really be at peace struggling to keep up with celebrity bodies or the latest diet? When asked if a diet works, my response is, “Can you do it for the rest of your life?” “If not, it will not work?” True joy comes when we are at peace with food and content with our body, a body that is a living example of health, not perfection. As a busy woman do you have time to try and live by these restricted diets? To lose and maintain your weight, a Clear Design for your lifestyle is what is needed to stop the yoyo dieting. If you are ready to gain control and finally be at peace by knowing how to really eat healthy, including the foods you love, I would love to help you.
