WELCOME to HBG, where I share my tips and tricks to help you prioritize your personal health and wellness!! In other words...its time to BOSS UP YOUR HEALTH!!
There are a lot of diets out there. And you've tried almost all of them. Your last diet, you were able to cut your calories down to 1000 calories per day, 1200 on the weekends. You were successful, dropping 10-15lbs in less than 60 days! Go girl! Except... you were hungry...no...a starving mad woman just trying to hold it all together.
Grilled chicken and salad were your two main food groups...and you were OVER IT! So one day, when nobody was looking, you pulled into a McDonalds, just for the fries, nothing major. I mean you owe it to yourself right? You've been really good! You take a bite and you can literally hear your taste buds begin to joyfully shout. Every bite is magic in your mouth, then suddenly, the last bite is gone.
But wait...you're still hungry. You debate about ordering something else off the menu before deciding on the fried fish sandwich, because fish isn't that bad right? You wash it all down with a diet soda, saving yourself the "unnecessary" calories, trash the paraphernalia, and go on about your day like nothing happened.
Except, something did happen. You decide you've failed miserably; so you might as well just eat whatever you want for the rest of the day and you swear you'll start over tomorrow. Tomorrow comes, and you fold like a bad hand in a card game. You snack and eat the wrong foods, day after day until your diet is a distant memory. Eventually those 15lbs are back along with 5 extra pounds to add a crushing blow to your self-worth.
Did you know that your inability to stick to your diet is not entirely your fault? You aren't some greedy glutton who cant control what goes in her mouth. Your body is doing just what it is supposed to do, preventing you from starving yourself to death. Your body considers the additional fat on your body "normal", has grown accustom to your eating habits, and will fight to keep things that way. When you go on a drastic diet such as cutting calories, your body panics, and your hormones go crazy doing everything possible to not only prevent you from starving, but to signal you to give it what it wants, more food!
