This is why diets don't work: Your body will only sustain a reduction in calories for 6-12 months, then it will protest. You have to be in charge, not the diet.
I am tired of seeing YouTube ads that tell you everything you know about food is wrong. It's just their hook. Don't fall for it. They know that the only way into your pocket is to make you doubt your own sanity. Only you can report on what works for you. But I guarantee that you don't need to chug olive oil in order to get results.
These doctors have learned how to make you afraid.
Gurus tell you that exercise won't help you lose weight.
There's a limited amount of time that your body will respond to a major change in the macros of Protein, Carbs and Fat. If your new diet isn't playing with macros deliberately, it is by default restricting carbs. Your body is not designed to be miserable for extended periods of time.
You cannot live in fear of food.
I have never dieted in my life until this past year. I have always trusted in natural foods and I have for decades, taken supplements. However, I needed personal data to understand popular diets, their parameters, their fake secrets. The only way to do this was to experience these popular diets myself.
As a nutritionist, I endeavored to follow 12 diets in 12 months. Vegan, KETO, WW, Intermittent Fasting etc., ...but I hit the wall at month #8. I had started an elimination diet called Whole30, and within days was in the depths of depression. I knew something was very wrong. Instead of continuing with the Whole30 diet, I switched to a standard Mediterranean fare and took care of myself for a month. Depression was sending me a powerful message: I desperately needed a break from the macro-wars.
As my 22 year old daughter noted, "It's no wonder girls say they'd rather be a little overweight than feel bad dieting." She connected the obvious. Nutrition and calorie restriction is bad for your mental health. It creates such a deficit that your mind cannot function well.
So, take charge! Learn how nutritious natural foods can transform your health and your weight. Get out and exercise. Soak up the sunshine. Breathe fresh air. Meditate.
Learn to love your body.
I imagine that there are many women out there who have constantly punished themselves with diets. If you are feeling defeated, I invite you to let me be your coach. I can help you to rediscover health. What works for your body, your mind, your situation. Stop trying to be someone else. Fall in love with what makes you special.
