Why Do We Regain the Weight After Dieting?
So you work really hard to lose weight and then you gain the weight right back. Why do we gain weight after dieting? This is a question that has been asked repeatedly and for the most part, answered with condescending statements about people just not wanting to be healthy enough to stick to a diet.
Well, actually, there are psychological and biological reasons why we regain the weight lost during dieting. The most obvious being, we were on a diet. Weight loss does not work if you do a diet, it works when you change your diet.
Changing your diet is a psychological commitment to better health and requires you to plan not only for the weight loss but the maintenance. By planning for maintenance, you are choosing foods that you can eat now and into the future. This sets up the biological element because it means focusing on healthy food that will fuel your body, provide your body what it needs to grow, and what will allow you to maintain your weight well into the future.
Being a wellness warrior means that you do both the psychological and physiological things that are necessary to be mentally healthy. I work on being happy everyday because happiness is a journey. It would be my pleasure to help you work on being happy, one video at a time.
