Did you know that many people who lose weight on a diet ultimately gain some, if not all, of it back? While long-term, sustainable weight loss is possible, dieting is usually not the best way to achieve it.
Here are three reasons most diets fail and what you should do instead!
Diets are temporary.
One of the biggest problems with diets is that they’re designed to be temporary. You follow them for a short amount of time, and then once you’re finished, you go right back to eating the way you did before. It’s no wonder that this doesn’t lead to long-term results!
Rather than short-term actions with no lasting value, we want you to focus on making long-term changes that will enhance the quality of your life. The BBS offers high-quality products and an easy-to-follow meal plan focusing on real, nutritious foods so you can create healthy habits to last you a lifetime.
Diets are overly restrictive.
Any healthy eating plan has some restriction built into it, but many diet systems function on restricting entire food groups. Some villainize fat, others cut out carbs completely, and most of them ban your favorite treats unconditionally. In addition to being nutritionally deficient, these plans are difficult to stick with long-term. Then, when you inevitably slip up, you end up blaming yourself rather than the overly restrictive system that sucked all the joy out of eating.
The BBS, on the other hand, is designed to allow you to enjoy a variety of foods on a daily basis so you don’t feel overly restricted. And, of course, free meals are built right into the BBS meal plan, so none of your favorite treats are off-limits forever. This gives you the opportunity to transform your life physically without being overly restrictive!
Diets focus only on weight.
Diets are designed with one goal in mind: weight loss. While losing weight is a great goal for a lot of people, this focus on losing weight at any cost ignores your health and can lead to serious problems down the road. It’s also tough for your emotional health and can put you in a negative mindset regarding your body.
In contrast, while many people reach their goal weight using the Better Body System, the real goal of the BBS is optimizing your health. We don’t want you to just look your very best—we want you to feel your very best! That often includes weight loss, but it also includes having the energy to do the things you love and giving your body the nutrients it needs to thrive. Your health matters so much more than just your weight, and with the BBS, you can rest easy knowing that you’re taking care of your health overall.
Most diets fail, so focus on making healthy lifestyle changes instead. For more tips on using the Better Body System to transform your life, subscribe to the blog and check out our Facebook page!
