5 Ways You Are Sabotaging Yourself
Your weight loss is ticking along nicely. The emotional eating is under control. And then, BAM! That pesky Voice in your head convinces you to crack open the block of chocolate that’s been sitting in the cupboard for the past two weeks, after all… you’ve been so “good” lately, you deserve a “treat”, right?
Of course, four blocks of chocolate, a pizza and one (half frozen) cherry danish later, you sit alone, dazed and confused…
Why do you keep sabotaging the ONE THING you know you want?!!
There are many theories… fear of failure, fear of success, fear of not being able to maintain the weight loss once it’s gone, fear of unwanted attention, the list goes on and on.
But at the end of the day, the results still lie in the doing. And so, until you’re actually doing something, then you’re really doing nothing at all.
Here’s 5 ways you can keep yourself miserable, stuck and in a whole world of pain…
1. Stay hooked on the chase
You get a rush from signing up for the newest, hottest weight loss gig. This one promises you’ll lose 14 kilos overnight, so it has to be good, right? After all, “they” wouldn’t lie to you. It’s backed up by research. They’ve done case studies…. Yeah, keep throwing your money at the diet gurus. That’s sure to work. They absolutely have your best interests at heart.
2. Get it perfect
Yes. This is definitely most important. Your diet has to be absolutely perfect or it will fail (read: you’re a failure). You must never eat anything that is not a part of your “meal plan” and your daily intake of calories, points, carbohydrates and fat grams must be perfectly balanced every.single.time. If you screw it up, you should binge on Krispy Kremes until next Monday, which brings me to my next point…
3. Start a new diet every Monday
This is the best idea you’ve ever had! Next Monday you’ll give up chocolate forever, empty your soft drink bottles down the sink and magically never crave sugar again! Of course, this means you should devour the world’s supply of sugary, salty, snaky things post haste! Don’t worry about the extra 5 kilos you’ll gain. You’ll drop those when you start your magical new diet next week because…
4. Replace all real food with Meal Replacement Shakes
What a sucker you’ve been! Eating real food when you could have been sipping grey, watery, nutritionally depleted, disgusting tasting meal replacement shakes. This is definitely the answer you’ve been Googling for! Plus, it’s so much fun to drink a totally unsatisfying shake when all your friends are eating a delicious Summer Broccoli Soup, or Coconut Berry Smoothie. Yeah, drink your meal replacement slush. That won’t make you look weird at all.
5. Listen to what everybody else has to say about you and your body
Definitely don’t think for yourself. Listen to what the diet industry tells you to eat, listen to what the latest fad diet tells you to eat but NEVER listen to what YOUR body tells you to eat. After all, what do you know? How can you possibly know what to put in your mouth unless someone tells you? Listening to your own body is not a sustainable plan. Never do it.
Here’s the facts, if you want a sure-fire way to send yourself into a week-long eating frenzy, just tell yourself you’ll start a diet “next Monday”. I promise you’ll be hitting the nearest Krispy Kreme counter in fifteen seconds flat.
If you’re looking for an easy, simple and sustainable solution to outsmart your cravings and beat emotional eating; the first step is to get serious about your nutrition. This is coming from a gal who tried EVERYTHING (twice) and it wasn’t until I addressed the (candy apple) core of the problem that things radically shifted.
If the magical Fat Loss Fairy could deliver you the golden pill to more energy, a brighter outlook and, of course, a hotter body, this would be it!
Whether you’re trying to break up with chocolate covered, double fried, sugar sprinkled donuts or simply stop yourself visiting the “Golden Arches” at 11pm every night, you will struggle to quit the cravings, release built up toxins and shed excess weight without the right tools for the job.
