Diets are generally too severe
Diets are generally so hard to follow them strictly. Diets force people to eat food they don’t like and remain hungry, these restrictions generally lead to the abandonment of the food plan and the consumption … and therefore the resumption of pounds lost!
The body resists the restrictions
Our body reacts to a diet in the same way that a famine: by reducing energy consumption. When you begin to eat as before, or more than before because of the deprivation we had, our body stores as fat the calories it finally gets. We therefore take the lost weight and often more. The more you take diets, the more our body tries to protect its reserves and the harder it becomes to lose weight.
The same portion is not suitable for all individuals
Several diets recommended weighing or measuring the amount of food consumed in order to meet a certain serving size or number of points allowed. However, the same serving size does not fit all people. Each person needs energy (and therefore calories) that are suitable for him. The only way to make sure to eat the amount of food that meets the needs of our body is to rely on signals of hunger and satiety it sends us.
Prohibitions lead to overconsumption
Many plans are accompanied by a list of forbidden foods. However, studies have shown that to deny completely or exaggerated food increased our desire to consume the food and brought us to consume larger portions. It is better to allow chips to the opportunity to meet with uncontrollable rages that will lead us to empty the bag!
The problem is not strictly food
The response to a weight loss is often purely diet. At best, it is accompanied by some physical or sporting recommendations. However, before thinking about losing weight, an essential work to be undertaken, a work on ourselves, on the relationships we have with food and eating behavior.
