No Diet Zone
Over 95% of dieters will regain the weight they have lost within a year.
Among the wide array of diets marketed to different people, there is one unifying factor: They do not provide long lasting results.
In fact, the basis behind these dieting approaches counteract our natural processes biologically, psychologically, and emotionally.
Biologically, the body reacts to dietting by slowing down weight loss. The often extreme shift in eating patterns translates as a stressor to the body. In response, the body produces high levels of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones are responsible for slowing down the body’s metabolic rate and hence, the rate at which calories are burned. In other words, dieting triggers a survival response from the body and makes weight loss much more difficult.
Psychologically, diets do not make much sense. Instead, the premise behind most popular diets include restriction, shame, and very little self reflection. However, in order for something to develop into a sustainable change, self reflection of the previous patterns and behaviors are crucial. Focusing solely on the food choices and this lack of understanding the root causes makes dieting impractical and unsuccessful.
Emotionally, dieting is considered turmoil. All diets have a touch of deprivation and avoidance. As they are marketed as a test of “self control” and “willpower,” they become the farthest thing from enjoyable. When there is no joy in this experience, it is unlikely that it will be possible to implement for an extended period of time.
However, this counterintuitive movement is here for a reason: We eat too much and we are experiencing health issues because of it!
The Mindful Fix
According to the Webster dictionary, mindfulness is defined as, “the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis.”
Incorporating a mindfulness practice with eating routines provides many benefits.
-More feelings of satisfaction
-Efficient absorption of nutrients
-Reduced food cravings
-And many more!
