EP. #61: Why Losing Weight for a Big Event is the Wrong Approach

Why Losing Weight for a Big Event is the Wrong Approach | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Have you ever decided to lose weight because a big event was coming?

You’re getting married.

Your high school reunion is a few months away.

Or maybe you’re going to the Caribbean or the beach and can’t avoid putting on a swimsuit.

You want to look your best, so you decide something like, “I need to lose 20 pounds--FAST!”

Then you start some kind of quick-fix diet. You know, like the ones you’ve tried a million times before that haven’t worked.

Maybe you think, “I’ll just cut out carbs for the next few months! I can do that!”

Or “I’ll do Whole 30!”

Losing weight for a big event is a lousy motivator though, and that’s why it rarely works.

Why waste your time and energy losing weight temporarily, especially when yo-yo dieting is unhealthy? 

Listen to learn the importance of motivation and commitment in your weight loss effort, and how to get motivated to succeed over the long term.
