Where are You in the Four Stages of Weight Loss? | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

What do you think about being able to eat whatever you want AND ending overeating at the same time? Some people think these are two totally inconsistent things.  

Some say, “If I ate whatever I wanted, I’d never stop eating!” 

How you react depends on where you are along the weight loss path. 

This week and next, the podcast focuses on the long and winding path of becoming a naturally thin person and losing the weight for good.  If you think this isn’t important, I urge you to think again.  

Because for me and many of my clients, understanding this was the difference between success and failure. It made all the difference. 

It was a turning point.

There are four stages on the path to eating the way naturally slim people do. Actually, there are four stages of learning any new skill, and learning how to eat in a way that will allow you to enjoy the foods you love while losing weight requires you to learn a bunch of things.  

One of my clients recently had a lightbulb moment about that. She realized that what I was teaching her wasn’t a diet, but rather, “I’m learning a new skill!” That helped her get into the right mindset for success.  

That mindset is totally different from the diet mindset of, “I’m starting fresh Monday!”  

How many times have you done that? Then you spend the weekend eating like there’s no tomorrow to prepare for the upcoming deprivation. And you stick with the new plan for long.

Then you toss in the towel and go back to eating the way you always have. Which means continuing to gain weight.

Which stage are you at now? Listen HERE to figure out the answer!

About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. I think that teaching someone to eat properly as a skill rather than a ‘diet’ that has a beginning and ending is very smart! It gives our eating habits a whole different perspective.
