Has someone said to you, the only way to lose weight is by being a vegan, cutting carbs, having this new meal replacement and so on? We’ve all heard it and seen it on our social medias on a daily basis. The reason you see these diets giving results in a short amount of time is it puts you in a very high calorie deficit. You wouldn't of lost weight because you stopped eating carbs, or you’ve had this meal replacement, you lost the weight by being in a calorie deficit. I’m not saying it won’t work to lose weight, but by putting yourself on a high calorie deficit, it isn’t sustainable.
This is why you see so many celebrities that endorse these products yo-yo up and down with their weight. You stop the shakes or supplements and go back to your normal routine, and your weight will just start to go back up! The whole point you want to lose weight is to be healthier and happier within yourself, not to go back to what you were working hard to prevent.
So instead of wasting your money on these products and following these fads, be in a realistic calorie deficit specific to yourself and build a great relationship with food. That way, it’ll make sticking to your new lifestyle change a lot easier. Trust The System!
