Revolving Door of DietingStress Eating and Dieting

Makes You Gain Weight

You’ve probably lost lots of weight many times- but it keeps coming back-
you’re going round and round again and again in that revolving door..

and your weight is going up and up again…😰

That’s because you’re not addressing the real reason for weight gain-

When you’re not hungry or you have eaten enough food and you continue to binge, or eat more than you need, that is emotional, or stress eatingActually, most people are not even aware of the fact of how often you are eating as a result of stress!

It’s been estimated that 75% of over-eating is caused by stress in an attempt to self-soothe unsettled emotions. We even have a name for the foods we eat because of stress: “comfort foods”.

When you are eating from stress, it’s almost like you are unaware that you are putting food in your mouth. There’s a disconnect between your head your emotions and your stomach! If you were listing to your stomach it would tell you: “STOP, I’M OVERLY FULL”. But you are in a different place outside of your body. It’s an emotional experience that is almost like being in auto-pilot. The stress has gotten to be too much to deal with so you self-medicate using food as treatment.

You can’t permanently lose weight with a diet!

Dieting is an attempt to avoid the food you are told not to eat,  the food you overeat or binge on. What happens the next time you’re stressed out, even if you ARE on a diet? You’ll binge again! If you want to have a chance to lose and maintain weight loss, you’ll have to manage stress. That means learning not to “see” and become more resilient with the way you respond to stress.


 

The reason that MANY women gain weight is actually from Chronic DIETING!

Chronic dieting, and under-eating puts your body in a state of physical stress! The natural response from not eating enough is for your body to slow down your metabolism to prevent starvation. Dieting also makes you feel lethargic and unmotivated. AND if you over-exercise, the normal response from a healthy body is to MAKE YOU HUNGRY to get back those calories you burned!!

The Diet Industry knows this, and profits richly from convincing you that the only way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more. I am in a permanent state of anger at Dr. Oz, and all those sites that you show you the “before and after” pictures. But they don’t show you the “after the after” picture, because that person who lost weight in 7 days is now heavy again! 95% of those dieters REGAINED the weight, plus additional insurance pounds each time you diet!!  It’s all a lie, and you can read an apology from one ethical counselor who apologizes after misleading her clients.

Chronic dieting can damage your metabolism to the point that you can’t lose weight no matter how little you eat, and how much you exercise!

I used to weigh over three hundred pounds. The only method to lose weight that i’ve found is to…you guessed it, eat less and exercise more. Starting out i could eat 2000 or more calories a day and i would exercise for maybe an hour or 30 minutes a few times a week. the more weight i lost the more i had to exercise and the less i could eat. now its 1300 a day and two hours of exercise a day. Granted im still trying to lose weight but its frustrating as hell. im tired and im hungry dammit. im afraid when i finally reach my goal ill have to starve myself and kill myself exercising to maintain it.

This is not the way to live your life. If you are tired of that yo-yo diet syndrome, tired of missing out on parties and meals with friends, obsessive about every morsel you put in your mouth, it’s time for a change. It’s time to manage your stress and learn to eat when you are hungry and ENJOY the food you eat!

taking a pill to stop pain from a pebble in your shoe is not going to solve the problem for your pain!

Consider this:

instead of taking medication to relieve the pain in your foot from a pebble in your shoe,

REMOVE THE PEBBLE!

A Diet is the Medication: the pebble is the stress
