Repeat Dieting Is like a Lifetime of Bad Dates . . .
YOU START OFF EACH TIME with starry-eyed hope and end up once again lying on your couch with a remote and a bag of Doritos, wondering what the heck is “wrong” with you and whether you’ll ever find “the one.”
I have two pieces of good news for you.
The first is that choosing the right diet is a whole lot easier than finding a mate. The sec- ond is that the key to doing it is right here in these pages.
You’re about to find that the missing link between your success and repeated diet failure is simply finding the right fit.
Let’s review a couple of facts. This year alone, 1,500 new diet books will be published. Almost all of them are medically and scientifically sound. But none of them are spe- cific to you. Not one takes into account your emotional and physical reality. They don’t understand your time pressures, your limitations, your strengths and weaknesses. They don’t know if you’re impulsive or perfectionist, or if you’re a workaholic or super- analytical.
And that matters! We all know that most people who attempt to lose weight don’t reach their goals, and that most who do reach their magic number typically gain the weight back. That is not their fault. The vast majority of dieters who “fail” are not lacking in willpower. They are simply mismatched to their weight loss plans. They’re pursuing boot camps, spin classes, and Paleo plans based on who they want to be instead of who they authentically are. And that’s the kind of attitude that puts them right back on the repeat-dieting merry-go-round.
More good news. Once you’re aligned to a food and workout plan that complements your strengths, you’re no longer lying on the couch wondering, “What’s wrong with me?” Instead, you’re intuitively connecting to habits that will last a lifetime.
