Why short diets have not saved us yet
Diets were never "my thing". Herbalife, rice, 90-day, Maching, food combining diet, anything we find on the pages of women's magazines or in "professional" books written by people who have solved their problem in some way, which does not mean that they have found the ultimate solution for everyone.
Diets never made sense to me. My intuition, or maybe just laziness, told me that it must go without endless torment. I couldn't even imagine doing that even just one day. For a few days I managed to eat only rice with apples. Oh. Literally "sweet" ignorance. All my life, of course, I blamed myself for more and more failures, because it was clearer than the sun that nothing but diet would help me.
I was not aware at the time, that it wasn't me who was wrong here the whole time. That it really doesn't have to be about lifelong torment and calorie counting. Thanks to my intuition, I "did not eat" my muscles, as 99% of women on any guaranteed diet did. Of course, we still have a large group here, which at least somehow figured it out and really honestly, sometimes very overly fighting with every calorie eaten in the gym or some other sport, because physics won't let go, will it? Which, of course, is true. If you are a calorimeter 😊 Of course, exercise is key to health, but not quite for weight loss. Other sciences are also entering this "caloric" game, and really a million times more demanding processes than those taking place in a calorimeter 😊 But we will talk more about it sometime in another blog.
