Dieting: The Alternative
- POSTED ON: Sep 21, 2016

There is an Alternative to Dieting.

Essentially, It is:  Stop Dieting. Stop trying to lose weight.  Start understanding that dieting is NOT a solution in that it’s very unlikely to make you thin for longer than 2-5 years at the very most - and actually, it’s much more likely you’ll end up heavier than where you started.  .. and begin relying on your Internal Wisdom. 

There’s plenty of Marketing for this Alternative, and a hefty hourly fee… will get you help in the form of individual online contact, from one of a multitude of “dubiously licensed online counselors”  who charge about the same hourly rates as the professional Therapists and Psychologists who are licensed through State, Federal, or National medically-recognized agencies. 

Will this Alternative result in getting you Thin or to a “Normal” BMI weight?
Perhaps…. If your body is already in the “normal” or “overweight” range and has always been there. However, if your body has ever been well inside the “Obesity” BMI weight range for more than one or two years,
it is Extremely unlikely.

Set Point, and Running Down the Up Escalator.

Here's the Bottom line.

The Truth is:

The truth is that health is not an obligation, barometer of worthiness, entirely within our control, or guaranteed under any circumstance.

The truth is that we should all have the opportunity, but never any obligation, to participate …or not… in any diet and/or fitness activity,  whenever we choose to do so.

The truth is that we don't have to make our self-confidence,  our self-esteem, or our self-worth  contingent on our health, what we choose to eat, our participation in fitness, or anything else.

The truth is that other people can talk and talk, but we don't have to pay attention or care what they say.

The truth is that I am the only person who can decide how I feel about myself and my body.

The truth is that  we are worthy, no matter what.
