3 Pitfalls of Dieting

The Anti-Diet Lifestyle


Most of the posts I see about dieting are, guess what, about dieting.  Not many (in fact I have yet to find any) articles are around that promote the exact opposite.  Our society is now so ingrained with the notion of dieting and weight loss that we have been blinded to other possibilities.  ‘Why has this happened?’ I hear you ask.  The answer is simple my friend, the answer is money, BIG money.  A quick search on Google and you will see that the dieting industry is a lucrative business with an estimated net worth in excess of $60 billion per year!!

I would like to try and balance the scales by informing you of some of the dieting pitfalls that no one seems to consider when beginning such a futile journey that is dieting (this list is by no means exhaustive):

Mental Health

If you are dieting because you want to resemble some of your thin friends or you’d like to fit in or you think that you will be more beautiful if only you lost weight, you are telling yourself in a very loud voice that you are not good enough.  This can only have a negative impact on your mental health.  Feelings of unworthiness and low self esteem are fuelled by any dieting set backs and you may end up in a vicious cycle of dieting, failure and the then inevitable increase in feelings of inadequacy.

Weight Gain

Let’s face it folks, most people that embark on diets end up failing.  Worse still they may actually gain weight as a result.  The term yo-yo dieting was coined particularly for this facet that is the common denominator of the majority of diets.

Drain on financial resources

Diets can be very expensive.  Some of the ‘programs’ are multi-million-dollar industries.  They require initial and on-going membership fees.  They lure you to buy their brand of foods, their monthly magazine subscription and other businesses advertise their wares on these sites.

Therefore . . .

Before you go on yet another diet, consider the above, look back on your past experiences and why not give The Anti-Diet Lifestyle a try?
