The biggest reason people weight cycle, meaning they repeatedly lose and gain signifiant amounts of weight, is because the diet plan they are following is not sustainable. Overly restrictive crash diets are incredibly difficult to maintain, and it is only a matter of time before your willpower burns out.
It’s like a pendulum that fluctuates between extreme rigidness and careless gluttony. The more you restrict, the more likely you are to swing to the opposite side of the pendulum into “screw it” mode. Can you move away from the extremes, away from deprivation, and into the middle ground of healthy discipline?
Discover if what you are doing now is sustainable long-term by asking yourself this simple question:
What would it look like to embrace a healthy balance that you can maintain for the long-run? Maybe that means following the “80/20” rule. Maybe that means sticking to healthy homemade food during the week and enjoying dinners out on the weekends. Maybe that means having a small treat every day. Discover what a healthy balance looks like for you. Choose to eat and live in a way that’s mindful, enjoyable and sustainable. 🙏🏼
