Is a Diet Ever Going To Work Permanently?

There are so many different philosophies, programs & concepts about that nasty tasting FOUR LETTER WORD.

measuring tape with 2 supplementsDiet truly can be a cuss word.  We wish dieting & weight management was as easy as taking 2 pills & waking up trim, toned & lean.

There are as many different died fads as there are types of pills it seems.

Why is that none seem to have lasting effects?

A few factors I see as legitimate reasons why…

  • Humanity’s perpetual search for utopia,
  • Our incessant search for convenience,
  • Search for comfort & ease,
  • Our food sources are night & day different than original design,
  • Capitalism wants us to believe in a NEW & IMPROVED method/system.
  • Some claim that they’ve developed a secret formula for weight management.
  • Not having to labor in the soil to survive.
  • Our quest for the fountain of youth.
  • It takes at least 90 days to develop a new habit & by then we are ready to give up if we haven’t already.

Don’t get me wrong, gardening used to be a favorite activity but I’m happy that I don’t have to depend upon my ability to raise & preserve enough food for my own & my family’s survival!

  1. Always feel hungry,

  3. Loose sense of humor & self awareness,
  4. Willpower against cravings,
  5. Causes jitters & loose muscle strength,

So, what is required to make a diet effective in this age of convenience?

  • Recognize our sense of being full before we over eat.
  • Provide all the nutrients needed for optimum health.
  • A program that works for 100% of the people 100% of the time.
  • Find the “perfect food” that is nutritional  & satisfying.
