Who isn’t on a diet these days? Let’s examine a few reasons diets are harmful and do not work LONG term.
Let’s identify some common diets and their restrictions:
Vegan- restrict animal proteins (often saturated, animal derived fats too)
Low carb/Atkins- restrict carbohydrates- sugars, starches, grains
Low-fat diets- restrict fats
Low-calorie diet- restrict overall calories (often restricting intake of carbs & fat to keep calories lower)
All of these “diets” can send the body into a deprived state, and often over time can slow the metabolism (=more weight gain), cause thyroid issues (often a waking body temp of less than 97.8 indicates hypothyroidism), and make the body think that food is scarce! This often causes the body to store MORE fat over time because the body is trying to protect you in case of a famine. So you might lose weight short term, but it more than always rebounds eventually plus a few extra pounds.
So why act in the short term with something that is not sustainable? Why not create a diet of SUPER – ABUNDANCE with nutrient dense foods: plenty of protein, the right carbohydrates, and REAL fats? If you give your body the nutritional building blocks it needs, a strong, healthy body is the (eventual) result. Just give it some time. It doesn’t happen overnight, and may take a while to recover from years or decades of dieting.
Natural results of giving your body what it needs with abundant nutrition:
- Nutritional wealth
- Strong digestion
- Blood sugar regulation
- Stabilized healthy weight
- Natural regulation of appetite
- Elimination of food cravings
- Obsessing over food becomes a thing of the past
- Better able to perform and deal with stress
- Improved stamina and energy
- Prepares your body to produce healthy offspring and live YOUR best life
Who really wants to fight a battle against the body for a lifetime? Play on the same team as your body, by listening and fueling it right.
