Many people see dieting & healthy eating as the same thing, but they are WRONG
Dieting: to restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight. Eating Healthy: consuming the right quantities of food from all the food groups in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
“Crash” or “Fad” Diets: most common type of dieting. Involves extreme, rapid changes to food consumption. Beverly Hills Diet: eat only fruit & increase selection of foods up to the sixth week. Cookie Diet: Eating pre-packaged, low fat cookies to quell hunger, often replacing meals. Smoothie Diet: replacing all or most of your meals with prepackaged or homemade smoothie. Grapefruit Diet: consuming large amounts of grapefruit at meal times.
Why shouldn’t you diet ? • You’ll never get the exact body you want. • It can create a negative relationship with food. • Only diet for a short amount of time. • Sets you up for failure.
The Switch to Healthy Eating The number of Americans on weight loss plans is at it’s lowest rate in decades.
Why are more people switching ? • Food is your body’s fuel, if you’re not putting in high grade fuel, your body isn’t going to be at peak performance. • Healthy eating is becoming more of a trend. • People are more aware of how they’re bad eating habits can affect them now and in the future.
What you can do • STOP MAKING EXCUSES. • Think about your food choices. • Join a health website or have a friend do it with you. • Get educated about the food you’re eating. • Don’t stress about it !
