Have you tried time and time again to lose weight only to fail in the long run? Have you tried fad diets, extreme workouts, or diet products on the market only to stop the workout routine or gain the weight again? Don't beat yourself up over it because you are not alone. Every year thousands upon thousands of people go on fad or crash diets only to be disappointed with the results. Researchers at UCLA found that dieting is not only ineffective, but can often make you gain more weight that you originally had after a small loss of usually only 5-10% . In the United States, inactivity is a serious problem. It is extremely important to know that a person does not have to run a mile every day to be fit and healthy. Finding reasons to walk a mile by adding up daily steps, such as parking slightly further away from the mall or taking the stairs instead of the escalator, can end up burning the same amount of calories. Many people who struggle with their weight don't understand this; they see it as an all or nothing proposition. People who do not enjoy going to the gym or engaging in vigorous activity begin to view exercise as something beyond their reach. It's important to understand that exercise is only one part of the problem, in fact, a person's diet is the largest component of weight loss. People who have unhealthy relationships with food can struggle to keep themselves at their ideal weight. When food is sought for comfort or pleasure more than for nutrition and sustenance, persistent issues with weight gain and body image can inevitably result. Many people don't really understand their own bodies caloric and macronutrient requirements so they end up overeating or indulging in the wrong types of foods. Many people actually believe certain things they eat to be ‘healthy’ without understanding the key differences between nutritional benefits and caloric intake. These people then eat the wrong foods in the wrong amounts; often believing they are doing the right thing. They are then shocked to learn they haven't lost weight, in fact, they often gain extra. When they indulge in foods they believe are ‘wrong,’ they also feel shame and self-hatred, causing a downward spiral to more binge eating and an increasingly negative relationship with food.
