For American's, dieting is just another hobby. How many people do you know that go on a different diet every month? I hear at least five people every day tell me that they are on some sort of diet or cleanse. It amazes me how diets have become such a fad!! What happened to just living a healthy lifestyle?? Society has engraved it in our heads that it is okay to eat crap food because we can just diet for a month, lose weight and do it all over again. It is an endless cycle.
The Boston Medical Center indicates that an estimated 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion annually on weight loss products. Yet, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. What is wrong here?? Does anyone else see the problem?
You may be sitting there thinking, "But, Lisa, how am I supposed to lost weight if I don't diet?" First of all, I HATE the word diet. It seriously sends chills up my spine. If you want to lose weight, be healthy and KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF, you need to live a healthy lifestyle. I am not going to lie, this may be a little harder than dieting for a couple months, but you will truly be happier and healthier if you do. Living a healthy lifestyle does not mean depriving yourself for a few months and than binging after your diet is over. Living a healthy lifestyle will take time. It will mean learning what healthy foods you enjoy, how to cut out the crap food slowly so that you don't go crazy, what type of exercise you ENJOY so that you actually want to exercise and so much more! So say no to dieting and say yes to a healthy lifestyle change. It is worth it, trust me:)
