The Easy Life Diet

How many diets have you been on? I have literally lost count in my 50 years. There’s the Vegie Soup Diet, Weight Watchers, Lemon Detox Diet, Boiled Egg Diet, Banana Diet, Sure Slim, Jenny Craig, endless shake diets, and do you know what, a lot of them I have lost weight on, so they do work. Some I have been on I have even felt fantastic and a lot healthier, some not so good, I have heart palpitations, dizzy spells, rumbling tummy to mention a few of the side effects. Sometimes the weight fell off me, other times it has taken a bit longer, but the end results are usually the same, the weight comes off slowly, and then goes back on a lot quicker. I think over time you literally damage your metabolism because it doesn’t know when you are going to feed it and when you are going to starve it. I think half of the problem is, when you are in diet mode, you are conscious of every little thing you put into your mouth, you are so good, you say no to the chocolate biscuits, no the the pizza, you won’t have that glass of wine or latte, then one day something happens, maybe you become stressed or unhappy and all of a sudden all of those cravings come back ten fold. You have just one biscuit and you end up eating the whole packet before you realise it. Then you think “I’ve been bad today, I might as well have that pizza for dinner, then start again tomorrow”. Tomorrow comes and you still have these strong urges for some ‘forbidden food’, so starts the cycle. So I really don’t think a diet is going to work if you have to deprive yourself of the foods that you really love. You have to be able to have your treats and the odd things you fancy, or if you go out to dinner with friends, you need to be able to eat something other than lettuce and have a glass or two of wine, with friends. Life’s really not fair, we want to all be skinny and look like Elle MacPhearson (maybe not you men out there), but we also want to be able to eat what we want and when we want – I think after 50 years I have finally come up with the ‘diet’ that will work for everybody and keep the weight off forever.
