“The book was well-written, interesting, and motivating. You sure do “tell it like it is” and don’t hold any punches. Good job! Thanks for giving me the swift kick I needed to gain control of my eating habits.”

The Core Problem with Diets and Dieting

I was talking with a friend last week about a “new” diet. I know I rolled my eyes at the mention. As I state in my book, losing weight on a diet is perfectly fine but you will eventually get to the maintenance portion. This is where the rubber meets the road because you are going to still have to confront the permanent mental changes necessary to control and manage your eating habits. There is no escaping that component of a diet which is why most diets ultimately fail. You stand a much better chance of permanent success by addressing the eating issues which need to change UPFRONT. Even if you just take baby steps to achieve each new goal—it is more likely to be a permanent achievement thus avoiding the frustration of gaining back weight lost on a quick fix diet. Just think about it.
