DEFYING A CULTURE OF QUICK FIXES
When it comes to losing weight, people tend to look for a quick fix. Secretly, all we want is a way to quickly and effortlessly lose 10 kilos so that we can go back to our old ways of eating what we want when we want.
Why? Because a life change seems hard, and the pull to go back to our default state of old ways and bad habits are strong.
What to do
Stepping away from this focus on quick body change requires a mindset shift. It requires giving up the all-or-nothing mentality where you are either completely depriving yourself OR eating everything until it’s all gone.
It’s learning to navigate the middle ground every single day. You can’t have all of the cake all of the time, but you CAN have occasional indulgences that are just more strategic and planned, so you don’t feel the need to stuff your face to the point of feeling sick.
Life change = long-term success
Focus on changing your life, and not just your body. This relieves the pressure of expecting unrealistic – and short-lived – results in a short period of time and allows for sustainable, long-term success.
Don’t just focus on a body change, you have to be ready for a life change.
