Food and weight obsession has become a national sport. Nearly 4 out of 5 women hate their bodies. This leads to incredible feelings of shame and self-denial. Most of us have learned to idolize the thin models, to adorn the fashion magazines. We were even in years of dieting dysfunction through our well meaning family and friends who help us thin ideal society tried led.
As a woman who has struggled with emotional eating for 35 years, I thought the answer to find the correct diet was. Now I know better.
Recently, it has revealed and accepted by the medical community, that diets not only for 90-98% of all people work. In the April 2007 issue of the American psychologist, the journal of the American Psychological Association reported UCLA researchers that diets work not in the long term.
According to the latest results of a composite study done at UCLA, Traci man, an associate professor of psychology at UCLA and lead author of the study, said, “we found that the majority of people regain the weight, plus more. Permanent weight loss found only in a small minority of participants while complete weight found himself back in the majority. “Diets not to persistently cause weight loss or health benefits for the majority of the people.”
For so many years I jumped through back and forth, found and followed weight watchers from diet to diet until I, again more than 20 times in an attempt to lose weight. In 2001, I finally reached my goal weight. I managed to keep the weight since over six years thinking that I had figured it out. My life was still miserable. I was over eating patterns, skip meals, over exercising and trapped in constant fear of regaining the weight. I thought only I could control what I ate, I’d be all right. I was wrong. The problem was not what I was eating, but what eat me! Now, I realize that the diet part of the problem, which was me by finding parts of my life, the satisfactory were distracted.
As a professional coach, I learned that the reason why diets do not work is because they speak not the emotions, that urge to eat when you’re not hungry. If you yank out the dynamics of your emotions are, it is not possible to visit, what you eat, pay attention and care.
You are too busy, fighting with your feelings and dealing with the little critic sitting on your shoulder and spouts negative comments about your weight and your body. The good news is that will that critics can transform a supportive coach, but it requires that you change your thinking. With this step, you generate new authorization habits, supporting the new empowered self-image.
Today, I am no longer limited by a diet. I eat what I want when I want and like hungry look I am and what I’m feeling. I look in the mirror and see all of me. I’m no longer from different groups. I don’t see thighs or a belly me as a pair of flabby arms, dimpled. I love myself as I am. I’m still on the road and have not yet achieved my goal, but I love the journey.
Now, I eat like a naturally picky eater. I’m no longer slave food, because I some very important principles, which changed the way, which I think have learned about myself and my relationship with food. Because the focus is, I spend what I eat, more time with things that I love, enjoy more my life and made me appreciate and say to love body as it is. As a result, the excess weight on my body and in my life are slow and sure way melt.
If you a woman who are for years to fight obesity, feeling need to fear real food, caught in a cycle of binging and take off, then you consider, that you are a part of the majority of people like me, for the diet doesn’t work. I’m here to tell you that an alternative, and it does not diminish it includes.
