Diets – The missing ingredient

Whether you’re trying to put weight on or loose it, weight management presents numerous difficulties – take that from someone who has spent over half her life watching her weight.

I’ve tried counting calories, weight-watchers points or doing slimming worlds red and green days.  I’ve even tried meal replacement plans.  Going to the gym presents its own challenges.  When I find the motivation to go it can make me hungry so the first thing I do is break the diet.

I don’t claim to be a nutritionist or dietician; however I know a few of the basics.  The most basic rule of all is that if you eat less calories and exercise more – you will loose weight.  Continued weight loss can only then be sustained by maintaining this balance.  This is how diets like weight-watchers work for a while.  Thing is, we achieve our goal, or get bored and increase our eating habits again and with it gain weight.   We can’t cut out all those lovely things we like to eat forever.

The other problem I find with diet clubs is that we can turn up every week, pay our money, look disappointedly at the scales and have put weight on.  We scratch our heads and can’t understand the weight gain, yet we do this week after week because we know it would be much worse if we didn’t go.

 

So what is the missing ingredient?

 

What is it that joining an ordinary diet club doesn’t give us?

 

The answer is simple and free – we just need to get our heads around it.

The answer is:

MOTIVATION
