You set a goal, Weight Loss. You scoured the internet looking for every tip and trick to help you reach it. You tried many diets, spent thousands of dollars, counted calories and even ate food you hated. The Good News: You lost the weight!! Congratulations! The Bad News: You had to do it, over and over and over again. As a Nutritionist who has spent thousands of hours with weight loss clients, I can tell you that you are in good company. Everyone at one point or another has thought that regardless of “how” they lose the weight, when they meet their goal, they will be able to maintain it. TRUTH: They (yes I’m talking to you) are WRONG Countless studies have shown that over 80% of people who lose weight will regain it within two years and that number can go as high as 95% after 5 years. No wonder the Weight Loss Industry is HUGE! Here is what I tell my clients: “If you start a “diet” that you can not do for the REST OF YOUR LIFE, you have already FAILED”! The most important part about losing weight is HOW you go about it. Losing weight for the sake of “weight loss” without taking into consideration your health is a huge mistake.
- Can you eat three twinkies a day and lose weight?
- Can you drink “seemingly” healthy pre-made protein shakes every day with no live nutrients and lose weight?
- Can you eat boxed or frozen meals and lose weight?
