diet gurus who are overweight after following their dietsLearning from an Overweight Diet Guru: Diet’s Don’t Work!

You want to lose weight. No, you are desperate to lose weight. If you are just a 5 pounds or even much more, over the weight you want to be, and you are desperate, I can tell you now, you are headed towards BIG fat problems.

Why is that? Because, desperation is a negative emotion that is stressful. And the real cause of overweight is STRESS,  which can lead to eating too much food, or it can just slow down your metabolism even if you don’t change what you are eating, and increase your weight .

Would you listen to an overweight person telling you about which diet works best?

Maybe you should! Because, IF they are being honest,  in all probability that overweight person has been on EVERY diet you can think of, and they were not able to maintain their weight loss: even on their own diet! Your body has a mind of its own: the same mind that makes your hair grow, your eyes blink and makes you breathe even if you are trying to hold your breath.

That mind in your body is insisting that you gain back any weight you lose because it’s preventing you from starving to death! And that’s actually healthy- you want a body that’s going to fight disease to keep you alive. You want a body that’s going to conserve calories if there’s not a lot of food available  (if God forbid, you were a refugee without much food available!).

The diet industry is making billions dollars a year promoting the newest and best new diet and exercise to rid you of excess weight. For many people these diets are successful- but only for a short time!

The diet industry doesn’t tell you the most important information. It’s not losing weight that is important, it’s maintaining weight loss that counts.

What would you do if you KNEW that each time 95{5b8e831512cf0c284f7edae7fc403e9a09e5b1736c5b1d60e4451a29dc064ebe} of people lost weight no matter WHAT DIET they went on, their pounds would return and bring along with it a few additional new pounds onto your frame? If you are like most people, you would go on the diet and believe that you’d be in the 5{5b8e831512cf0c284f7edae7fc403e9a09e5b1736c5b1d60e4451a29dc064ebe} that don’t gain the weight back. You may think that the other people didn’t have discipline; that they didn’t exercise enough, that they followed the wrong diet plan; that they didn’t make a “life-style change”. But you would be wrong.

Consider this: there are humans all over the world who eat different types of diets; some plant based, others that only eat meat and small amounts of plants (Eskimos), carb based (rice- most of the Asian world with very little meat) – and there are thin people and there are overweight people. What’s the difference between them? STRESS (and genetics).
