We usually start a new diet to take control over our food intake and lose weight. We might feel in control at first.
However, with all the rules and restrictions, we feel deprived and frustrated which will ultimately lead us to eating the “forbidden foods”, emotionally eating or binging. We end up losing control, feeling weak and “not strong enough”.
Then, we believe that the solution is to start another diet to regain control. We think to ourselves: “This time it will work, I will do it better”. And we fall into the same trap.
Let’s stop this vicious cycle. Start eating everything in a balanced way. Please don’t feel guilty and please don’t think that you are not good enough.
