EP. #12 – Time to Ditch the Diet and the Diet Mentality

Time to Ditch the Diet and the Diet Mentality | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

You’ve probably read it a million times. Diets just don’t work. Only around 3% of dieters actually lose weight and keep it off!   To put it another way, uncontroverted research PROVES that 97% of people who try dieting won’t lose any weight or will gain back whatever they lose within 2 years. Most gain even more weight. 

Yet every day, ridiculous numbers of people start a new diet! You’ve heard the definition of insanity, right? Doing the same thing over and over, but expecting to get a different result.

So why is it so hard to give up the belief that you can become a thinner person and stay that way by dieting? 

Is it the appeal of hoping for that one magical diet that will easily solve your weight problem? Kind of like a genie granting your wish and about as likely 

In Episode 12, you will learn: 

  1. What is a diet? 
  2. What’s so bad about diets? 
  3. Why your chances of permanently losing weight on a diet is almost nil. Hint: it’s not about you.  
  4. What you should do if you really want to lose the weight for good.

I'd love to teach my method to you! I’m also a gourmet cook and baker who struggled with my weight for 40 years before discovering the secret of how to stop emotional eating and overeating.
