One of the biggest myths out there in the Women’s Health ‘world’ is this idea that you should get ‘good’ at dieting.
I can’t even tell you how many women I speak with that WISH that they simply had more willpower or discipline or perseverance to stick with their diet… and that if they could just figure out how to make THOSE things show up for them, all would be well, and the problem would be solved.
I used to think the SAME THING about my own struggles with my weight and my own inability to stick with whatever the ‘diet of the month’ I promised myself I would follow through on.
And I came to learn that it was only because I was focusing on the WRONG thing. In fact, I was actually making WORSE!
Because willpower and motivation and the ability to ‘grit’ my way through yet another unsustainable diet, were NOT my problems.
The REAL problem was this idea in my head that actually WANTED to ‘get good’ at dieting…or to be a better ‘dieter’.
THAT was the problem. It was that ‘Diet Mentality’ that was keeping me stuck, and the fact that I was trying to become MORE skillful in a way of thinking that was setting me up to LOSE and setting me up to FAIL…well that was just the icing on the cake.
And in this episode of the Stressless Eating Podcast, we are going to explore the in’s and out’s of the ‘Diet Mentality’ Myth….
