Reba Sloan, MPH, LRD,FAED

“Dieting that causes excessive loss of weight is beset with difficulties”

Hippocrates 400 B.C.


Why do people diet l.jpg
Why Do People Diet?

  • To chase an artificial standard

  • Because everyone else is dieting

  • False promises are tempting

  • They believe weight loss is a cure for poor self/body esteem

  • In pursuit of the “perfect diet”

  • To distract themselves from other issues

  • It is an effort to improve themselves


Why don t diets work l.jpg
Why don’t diets work?

  • The body compensates for dietary restriction

  • Restriction of certain foods can promote an obsession with eating those foods

  • The mind perceives caloric restriction as a famine

  • Each body has a weight or size that it fights to maintain …the set point theory of weight management

Why don’t diets work?

  • Diets are finish line driven

  • They set up people with the “guilt response”

  • Diets are not real life

  • Our relationship with food is complicated

  • We have taste buds!

  • They are based on faulty logic and science

  • Diets can be dangerous


If not diets then what l.jpg
If not diets … then what?

  • Learn about your own relationship to food

  • Work on connecting with your hunger/satisfied signals

  • Go for balance, moderation and variety

  • Get moving

  • Don’t use the bull dozer approach … try the hammer and chisel!

  • NO GUILT … eating is not a moral or legal issue!

  • Confront the issues that may be increasing your desire to diet and weight obsess

  • Know nutrition truth from fiction

Where Do I Go From Here?

  • Love and appreciate the body you have

  • Determine your nutritional strengths and weaknesses

  • Find an activity that you can commit to on a nearly daily basis

  • Establish 2 or 3 challenging … yet achievable goals (not weight related!)
