The Most Common Mistakes
You believe that restrictive diets and nutrition systems help to keep the weight off
You believe that intensive exercises will guarantee you weight normalization
You believe that there is an ideal body
You think that you know what a healthy body looks like
You believe that losing weight will solve all your problems
It is proved that the diet behavior in the long run leads to putting on weight rather than losing it. Brain turns the starvation mode on, holding on to each calorie consumed, and episodes when you can't resist «bad» food (which sometimes lead to overeating) are inevitable.
If one suffers from disordered eating, or genetically predisposed to obesity, - active lifestyle and intensive exercises won't necessary keep one's weight within the limits of specific range.
It's important to remember that it's impossible and absolutely unnecessary to reduce all bodies to one shape and size which we've chosen to consider beautiful. Our bodies are strongly predetermined by our genetics.
Once you'e decided to embark on a journey to lose weight (that you think is excessive), you must be honest with yourself and answer the question: What is my real goal?. If it's associated with changes, for instance, in love life or professional success - it's not about your weight.
Today fatness is being demonized - fat body is considered not only ugly, but also unhealthy. On the contrary, the effects of dieting on physical and mental health are destructive.
You think that you need to control your body to look good
It's hard for the majority of people to even imagine giving up all the food restrictions, because they fear that without control their bodies will become monstrous.The reality is that, when eating behavior is normalized, the body knows exactly what it needs, and won't take more than that.
