Whether you are contemplating going on your first diet or have been riding that rollercoaster all of your life, we’d like you to take a moment to ask yourself this question… “Will a diet give me a lifelong solution?”
We understand the draw to the quick fix diet – promises of wonders achieved in just 30 days, the allure of the quick 10 pound weight loss in the first week. And yet, in the end, you have to acknowledge that they do not create a lifelong solution. In fact, the Yo-Yo Sabotage, virtually guarantees that you will be back in the same place you were before the diet within months.
We want you to change your paradigm about eating. Do you find yourself alternately binging and starving, eating to control your feelings, being drawn to one type of food or another? These symptoms can all be chalked up to various things – habit, cravings, a family legacy – and yet in the end, these are excuses for not eating better, not the cause.
At Live, we can give you the information and support that you need to change your eating style for life. You don’t have to give up your favorite foods, or go on a starvation diet, you simply need to understand how your body processes food and work with it to become a fitter, more fabulous you.
The first component of eating yourself leaner is to learn how to Eat All Day Long and Never Gain a Pound by distributing your food intake to five small meals eaten throughout the day. In all honesty, that is the biggest key. As long as you stayed within your targeted calorie range for a maximized metabolism, those meals could be made up of Twinkies and you would still be better off than going on another diet.
Your second component is to actually take care of what you are feeding your body. By making sure that you are giving yourself Five Balanced Meals a Day, made up of proteins, fruits, vegetables, and yes, even carbohydrates and fats (See The Truth about Fat and Carbs), your body will be able to function at optimal levels.
What will this strategy do for you:
- Keep you satisfied all day without feeling the valleys and peaks of starving and stuffing
- Diminish your cravings
- Optimize your metabolism
- Make food your ally rather than your enemy
