Stop dieting!!! (and what to do instead)

Stop dieting (blog)

I’ve had it with people dieting. To get their pre-baby body back, to fit into a particular dress… whatever it is – stop dieting! Right now! There is no need to constantly feel deprived and hungry. You can loose weight, feel great and still eat delicious food every day. Read on.

What’s the issue? After becoming a mum it is particularly evident in all the online forums I’m in, that loosing weight is a big thing. After all, especially for mums, who doesn’t want to get rid of the baby weight and return to your pre-baby body? (or even fitter!) The problem though, as I see it, is women asking for advice on how to loose weight and the answers from others is all about the latest diet, from the ‘juice only’, ‘only eating every other day’ to restricting daily intake to near nothing. Then, comes the success stories of loosing the weight (but it wasn’t pleasant, headaches, cravings, feeling deprived etc), followed by a re-gain in weight because these diets aren’t sustainable. They are only a quick fix. You will be yo-yo’ing for life if you carry on.

Here is what you can do instead and FEEL GOOD for life:

  • Go sugar-free! Go to this page and read up on all my posts on how to go sugar-free. Not convinced that sugar is the problem? Read this and you will wonder no longer.
  • These posts from my sugar-free challenge will help you through the first week which is the worst and explain what to do after that. Day 1. Day 2. Day 3. Day 4. Day 5. Day 6. Day 7.
  • Follow my blog (sign up your email in the top right corner or follow on Facebook) so you don’t miss out on the latest recipes and great articles.
  • In a pickle or have a question? Just need support? Email me on contact@exsugarholic.com

What – and start a new diet? No. Although it may appear to start with, you are not cutting out a food group, you are just avoiding allergens and processed crap for the most. The hardest part of it is only temporary, then you are set for life long success. After your withdrawal from sugar you will no longer feel like you NEED sweet things, overdose on carbs and trawl the cupboards when you get home or grab that last cookie at the office. You may loose/maintain your weight (depending on what you want), have high energy, loads of motivation and feel happier.

What’s not to like? If you try it and withdraw successfully and you don’t like it you haven’t lost anything! (although I have yet to hear of anyone not loving all the benefits of their new lifestyle :)) Start now!
