A few people messaged me after my post two days ago to ask me how I maintain my weight and how it is possible to lose weight without dieting.
Well, first of all, here is what I think about diets and dieting in general.
Most certainly, on highly restrictive diets, your weight will drop off at the beginning.
However, the odds are high that due to the restrictions of these diets (very low calorie intake, forbidden foods, forbidden food groups, strange foods, foods you hate and make you gag, etc), you will end up hungry and frustrated, so you will throw in the towel and give up altogether on your diet.
What then follows may be all too familiar to you, a pattern that keeps repeating itself. You will go back to eating the way you always have, and thus put all the weight you lost at the beginning and sometimes, put even more weight on!
This is why I and many other people believe that diets don’t work. Yet strangely, dieting is a multi-billion dollar industry! Go figure.
With many diets, food is regarded as the enemy, forbidden, locked away, what you are used to is replaced forcefully by other foods you are not familiar with, have difficulty finding and/or don’t taste nice.
Is it any wonder, that people give up on their diets?
Where are the pleasure and the enjoyment in those diets?
Where is the love of food?
Nowhere to be seen.
You see, I and millions of other French women maintain our figure or lose extra kilos in a completely different way.
The way we eat is different.
What we think about food is different.
I believe that our love of food has something to do with it.
But there are many other factors that are at play too, as you can find out tomorrow.
For now, please hold your diet sheets!
