revolving doors

Are you stuck in the revolving door diet: lose, regain, diet again, regain….

How many diets have you been on? I bet you lost weight on some of them. But then, the weight slowly reappeared. Maybe you “got off” the diet after you reached the weight you wanted to be. You probably figured: OK, I lost the weight, and now I can go back to eating a “normal” amount of food, and I can stop starving myself.

It wasn’t like you pigged out, and over-did it. You just stopped totally depriving yourself, like when you were on the diet. But despite being “careful”, the weight started coming back on. OMG! It’s horrifying! Look how hard you worked, and how much you gave up! But now, your body is re-adjusting to the lower caloric intake you fed it. Then you get to a point where you “can’t stand yourself” and go back on another diet. It’s like being stuck in a revolving door!

Most of us who have gone through that get angry at our body. WHY is this happening to ME?? Then you start blaming yourself, and getting really sad, as slowly the new clothes you may have bought become tighter and tighter.

This is not something that is just happening to you. It happens to everyone who has a HEALTHY BODY, and tries to fool Mother Nature by “eating less and exercising more”. It goes against the Laws Of Nature. Your body is designed to keep you alive, and will adjust your metabolism when there are times of low food availability. If you eat too little, your metabolism slows down. If you exercise too much, and burn too many calories, your automatic system will MAKE you hungry. It’s beyond your control!

But humans think that we can tame nature – but I assure you that Nature is going to win.

It’s been discovered that there is another variable at work that makes it hard for many people to lose weight. It comes all the way from your childhood. If you learned in your childhood, that you were “not alright” the way you were,  if you were humiliated, put down, ignored, or abused, that become a subconscious mindset, that later in life makes you feel unsafe in your body. It’s a hidden source of chronic stress. And it’s works to make it more likely that you will become “thick skinned”, gain weight and be less able to get it off. It’s the body’s way of protecting itself.

In almost 80{5b8e831512cf0c284f7edae7fc403e9a09e5b1736c5b1d60e4451a29dc064ebe} of cases, people are stressed, and they may use “comfort food” as a drug to treat the stress. So there’s an over-eating component, that is really about binging to deal with stress. You have a double whammy: stress slows down your metabolism, and you eat because of the stress. How’s a person supposed to beat those odds?

By NOT dieting. Because dieting is stressful. But you can use eating food as a mindful practice to deal with the stress. Paradoxical?
