Well, now listen, we like the idea of a quick fix diet. I mean, if something promises to make you drop 5 kg overnight, it’s tempting, right?
Usually these quick fix diets involve an all or nothing, cut and dry approach that DO lead to fast noticeable results at first.
Why? Because they involve you going into an extreme calorie deficit. When you burn more calories than you consume, you’ll lose weight.
The problem is that a strict diet, where you just deprive yourself and restrict all your favourite foods and hate life, rarely last. They also rarely work long term.
It’s just not good for your health, your results, or your lifestyle in the long term.
Unless you plan on never having a life, never having conflicting priorities, always being prepared, never eating out, never going on holiday (lame) and never being too tired or sick to prepare food, it’s going to be almost impossible to stick with a very restrictive diet long term.
So when you’ve trained your metabolism to live on 1200 calories a day (which barely sustains an infant), and then life happens, or you inevitably choose to relax the reins a little and live your dang life, all the weight you sacrificed to lose comes back – fast. Usually with a couple of kilos extra.
These fad diets set you up for feeling defeated, guilty, and frustrated.
It’s not your fault.
Most of these diets were NEVER meant to be followed long term, because long term restriction of food groups, deprivation and food shame, can lead to all kinds of deficiencies, imbalances, metabolic disruption, and disordered eating.
Not cute. Like, explain to me how that’s “healthier” than just eating a goddamn cheeseburger every once in a while?
Not to mention – it’s very hard to do real life when you’re on a diet. At least any kind of life you can enjoy.
Now you’re getting up at 3 am to meal prep when you’ve had a busy week. And when everyone goes out for ice cream you just sit there eating carrot sticks in a pre-prepped sandwich bag pretending they’re just as good.
Boo. Who wants that life?
I have another alternative. Another alternative – which I can personally attest – will get you REAL results.
Maybe not overnight – but in days you’ll feel healthier. In weeks others will notice the change. And in a month, you’ll notice it too.
Better still – this alternative will be something you can stick to for life.
Something that actually makes you feel good, gives you more energy, and allows you to live a richer life.
What if, instead of another crash diet, you chose to make healthy changes?
Nothing drastic, just adding healthy habits to your current lifestyle.
After years of dieting, let me tell you, it sure feels like it. But here I am, losing weight, not a diet in sight, and actually enjoying the journey.
I choose to make small changes to my lifestyle for the healthier, focusing on what feels doable, and doing the next right thing.
And yes, I won’t lose 10 kg overnight. But with consistency, hard work, and a little bit of prioritisation, it’s happening.
Every day that you show up, even when you don’t want to, you keep moving in the right direction.
And I have something that can help you: a free bundle of healthy habits to help you notice changes in your health, fitness and mindset.
No diets. No crazy restriction. Just the healthy lifestyle you’ve dreamed of living.
I can’t believe for so long I felt like I had to restrict myself and make it so hard. I can’t believe getting in shape feels this good and this fun.
It’s simple, it’s common sense, and it works.
