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.




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 remember lifting weights so that my arms would look better in a sleeveless dress. We all overcompensate sometimes, when day to day good diet and exercise is the only TRUE WAY to go.
