Dieting is NOT Practical…It’s NOT supposed to be

Dieting is NOT Practical. It’s not supposed to be. That’s what makes it a diet.

For those of you who are on a diet of some sort remember what you are doing is temporary.Don’t forget that.

Weight loss is impractical but this won’t last forever.

The worse feeling ever is going to bed hungry. It sucks.

If this keeps happening to you I would suggest intermittent fasting (IF). This is a fancy term for skipping a meal or multiple meals with the understanding that you will make up those calories later in the day.

For example. My “magic number” (daily caloric number for weight loss) is 1,800 calories a day.

If I eat 3 meals a day that averages about 600 calories per meal. If I were to introduce fasting to my diet I could skip breakfast and take those 1,800 calories and spread them out over two meals. Now my meals are 900 calories each. There are many benefits to this both psychologically and physiologically.

The worse feeling ever is going to bed hungry. It sucks.

Physiologically, you will give your gut some rest from digesting food all the time. You will find yourself more alert while helping normalize blood sugar.

Psychologically, you will feel fuller since your portion sizes are bigger. You won’t feel deprived as often after meals.

This technique has proven the most successful in keeping individuals on a diet much longer than those who didn’t practice IF.
