This cycle is a vicious circle people usually get caught in after repeated attempts at dieting.
Fad diets will push you to restrict your food intake or remove food groups. They might help you lose weight at first because it is different from what you are used to doing, but soon enough, you feel deprived, frustrated and you will eventually “cheat” and overeat.
This will make you feel guilty and affect your self-esteem. However, you should know that overeating is the body’s natural response to starvation to protect itself, it is not a lack of willpower that makes you eat.
Unfortunately, you will also be developing an unhealthy relationship with food.
Here’s what you need to:
– make peace with food
– respect your body
– deal with negative emotions without using food
– most importantly, have a balanced lifestyle.
