3 Reasons Why Diets Fail

3 Reasons Why Diets Fail


Confusion. Frustration. Disappointment. Sound familiar? These emotions are felt by millions of us each year who go on a diet then off a diet and on a diet and off a diet. The diet roller coaster aggghhhh!!!! Time and again, we give up when we don’t achieve the promised results. Or we lose a few pounds, just to gain it all back and then some, a short while later. I have been there too so I know exactly how you feel. If you want to know the 3 reasons why diets fail and the solutions – keep reading.

I hear people all the time asking “Why can’t I lose weight?” What am I doing wrong?” Every single time I meet with my clients it turns out it’s not them that is failing, it’s their diet and not having the proper balance of nutrients eating evenly spaced throughout the day.


3 Reasons Why Diets Fail

1. A Quick Fix. Often dieters drastically restrict their calories or food choices. Then return to their old habits, eating what they were eating before they went on the diet, once they reach their goal. If the “diet” is not something that will sustain you long-term, the diet will fail.

Solution: Permanent lifestyle changes are needed to achieve sustained weight loss! This is a way of life to achieve your short-term and long-term results and feel great.

2. Fad Diets=Unbalanced Nutrition. Most diets are not balanced. They focus on specific types of foods or remove entire food groups. This totally leads to unbalanced nutrition and there is no way to stay on that kind of plan long-term.

Solution: For optimal nutrition, our bodies need a balanced variety of nutrients, including lean proteins, the right type of carbohydrates and fats. If you would like to see some sample menu ideas shoot me an email. 😉

3. The High Glycemic Trap.  Eating high glycemic foods can sabotage even the best of diet plans because the resulting spike and then drop in blood sugar leads to a more rapid return to feeling hungry. Most people are totally surprised when they find out some of the foods they had been eating that they thought were “healthy” are actually high glycemic and sabotaging their weight loss plan.

Solution: Focus on low glycemic carbs which help to moderate blood glucose levels, leaving you feeling full and satisfied longer. For more on why we should eat low glycemic see 3 reasons we should eat low glycemic

This is why diets fail people! 
Stop looking for a magic bullet or a quick fix. Treating your body well will have you feeling and looking great. Your mindset is very important too my friend. Instead of thinking you are depriving yourself of a certain food that you used to eat that made you feel like crap afterwards anyway – think about how you are rewarding yourself by making choices that help you achieve your goals and feel great!
