The #1 Reason Diets Fail

Jun 22, 2021

We’ve been trained (brainwashed?) to think there’s a “secret formula” and magical set of foods to eat that will have you dropping pounds like nobody’s business, but you never stop to think about how you want to live the rest of your life.

You think you have to suffer, deprive and restrict yourself in order to lose weight, but who wants to live in a world without chocolate, pizza, pasta or wine?! Not I!

So the problem is that you create very unrealistic diet plans, instead of thinking about “What can I do for the rest of my life, without hating my life?” 


Diets fail because you’re too restrictive and unrealistic about what you can do long term. 


If you want to maintain your weight loss, you’ve actually got to practice losing your weight the way you will live it.

This always plays out when you try to go from diet mode into maintenance mode - you never taught yourself how to have a healthy relationship with ALL foods - you’ve simply told yourself what was good, bad or evil.

You don’t actually know how to just eat a little and be satisfied. You don’t know how to go back to eating real food, enjoying holidays, travel, work functions or special occasions - all you know how to do is binge and restrict. 


Sound familiar? 


So how do you lose weight and keep it off good?

You’ve got to start by changing your relationship to food - it’s time to stop moralizing food (and then moralizing yourself based on what you ate) - which means there are no good foods vs bad foods. 



I teach clients how to create REALISTIC eating plans instead of DIET plans.

I break it all down for you in today’s episode. 


What’s in this episode:

  • What it means for your diet to “work” vs “fail.”   
  • The difference between a REALISTIC plan and a DIET plan. 
  • How to make REALISTIC planning easy, so that weight loss is effortless.


Ready to end emotional eating, lose excess weight, and feel amazing in your body? 

Head to where I share the counterintuitive reason why all your attempts to restrict food over the years has actually led to WEIGHT GAIN, and the mental “switch” you need to flick that’ll let you drop lbs, without sacrificing wine, carbs or the foods you love.
