Why don't diets work?
Most diets force us to limit our intake, eat foods we don't like, find boring or leave us craving 'banned' foods and become obsessed with weighing scales.
Sheer determination can allow you to stick to these diets in the short term for exactly that reason, you know in your mind that this is only short term.
The idea of a diet means that you are missing out on foods that you like, which immediately makes it seem that you are punishing yourself.
Most diets fail due to a number of factors:
- Having unrealistic goals - trying to lose too much, too soon
- After the initial weight loss, the hunger pangs, cravings and lack of energy (from lower calorie intake) makes you start to snack on 'forbidden' foods
- Dieting lowers the metabolism, which will result in you burning lean muscle mass, fat and water weight. This results in the body burning fewer calories per day - this is why after the initial weight loss we quickly reach a plateau where weight loss is very hard to achieve and maintain
- People tend to be fixated on their total weight. What is actually important is the composition of the weight
- When you cease dieting your weight will increase rapidly (due to your lower metabolism) and because you have will have lost muscle you will look even less 'lean' than when you started
- Once the weight loss is achieved what then? continue dieting or allow the weight to creep back on?
- Most people regain the lost weight or gain more within months of the diet ending
- Eating like smoking and drinking are social activities - unlike smoking and drinking you can't quit eating
By exercising for half an hour a day, you will burn extra calories and speed up your metabolic rate which will burn fat and increase muscle mass.
This will further boost your metabolism as muscle requires more calories than fat.
It doesnt mean you have to become a marathon runner.
Instead of driving to work couldn't you cycle or walk?, why not take the stairs instead of using the lift? Walk to the shops instead of driving? Carrying the shopping home is a great work-out.
These are very small changes that can be easily adopted.
This is a 'lifestyle change', not a temporary fix.
Without making radical changes to your diet you can lose fat weight and keep it off permanantly.
By removing a few empty calories each day you can make a significant change to your fat weight and body shape that can be maintained.
It doesn't have to be drastic to work and smaller changes are more likely to be stuck to.
By reducing your diet by 250 calories a day:
- Coke 140kcal
- Snickers 313kcal
- McDonald's Quarter pounder with cheese 515kcal
- Krispy Kreme rasberry filled doughnut 300kcal
- Starbuck's tall coffee, mocha etc 344kcal
increasing your activity level to burn a further 250 calories:
- walking for 1 hour
- scrubbing the kitchen floor and cabinets for 40 minutes
- walking the dog for an hour or dancing for 35 minutes
- washing the car uses 140kcal per half hour
- an hour of weeding uses 280kcal
and curbing those cravings:
- chew some sugar free gum
- don't let more than 3 hours pass between meals
- do not skip meals, this is a common cause of cravings
- eat fruit, nuts or celery, carrot sticks etc as a substitute for the sweet things you crave
- have a supply of healthy snacks at home and work
you would be likely to lose up to 2 pounds a week, you would also increase your muscle mass and metabolic rate.
Easier to stick to than a diet of soups, carrot sticks and diet shakes.
Having an event to train for is a great motivational tool to target your training and energise your diet.
Endlessly trying to lose weight, tone up or increase muscle mass can become tedious and the initial drive and enthusiam can start to wane.
By focussing on an event such as a wedding, holiday or a sponsored walk/ run for a worthy cause can help re-focus your attention.
