Diet or Lifestyle Change?

If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up. – Unknown

Below are things you may have experienced while on a ‘traditional’ diet:

  • Weight is typically lost quickly in a set period of time
  • Foods are categorized as “good” or “bad”
  • Entire food groups are left out (i.e., dairy, carbs, etc.)
  • Calorie consumption is greatly restricted
  • Progress is dependent on a number on the scale
  • “Calories in; Calories out”
  • Once the diet ends, the weight comes back on…and then some

Here are some things you will experience with a lifestyle change:

  • Eating healthy, nutritious and whole foods, knowing they will nourish and sustain you
  • Slower, more permanent weight loss because it’s done at a healthy pace
  • Second nature (actions of restriction vs. feelings of restriction)
  • Less likely to experience extreme hunger, food deprivation, and mental stress
  • Measuring your progress beyond what the scale says
  • Something that you can stick with for the long haul

This is not a short-term diet.
It’s a long-term lifestyle change.
