What was one of your goals this year?
If I had to guess, I’d imagine it would have something to do with being healthier, fitter, stronger, or faster. You’re definitely not alone in that.
According to an article published late last year more people are trying to lose weight than in previous years.
The unfortunate part is that even though more people are trying to lose weight, the only thing they seem to be losing is the battle with the scale.
The old school, outdated strategies to lose weight..ie exercise more and eat less doesn’t work. At least not long term.
I believe the health and wellness industry is doing a disservice to it’s consumers by simply addressing health in basic terms:
- What we do and don’t eat.
- How many calories we’ve burned vs. how many we’ve consumed.
- Using ‘either or’ language instead of looking at things on more of a sliding scale.
Nutrition, like virtually every other area of life is complex. We unfortunately don’t live our lives in a bubble. More times than not, life gets busy, it gets messy.
Even the best of intentions will fail.
One of the things not talked about near enough is the relationship we have with our bodies before, during, and after weight loss attempts (and even the “success” stories, though much fewer).
For most women, one of the driving forces to lose weight is to feel better about themselves or their bodies. What you may not realize is that what you think of as a ‘good’ or ‘healthy’ body is not your idea. It’s been heavily influenced by friends, family, social media, and the larger culture around you.
