The best known strategy is to look everywhere for the perfect diet, the pill that is fashionable or the recipe that my friend’s cousin recommended. Anyway, the only objective in the mind is to lower those extra kilos and now. The end result is to return to the starting point, facing the same mirror thinking: once again the diet did not work. The main mistake is that we repeat the same strategy, seeking to achieve different results. But, diets do not work in the long term simply and simply: because they are obsolete (period). If you have been in this situation constantly, and you are looking for a definitive solution, the best option is not a change of diet, the only solution is a change of mind. Do you want to know how to achieve it? If you are making plans for a year, seed rice; if you make them for two decades, plant trees; if you do them for a lifetime, educate a person. Our life these days is too dynamic, we are constantly moving, we live in a world with job responsibilities, educational, social commitments, family obligations, it is too complicated to count calories and grams to achieve the diet and also comply with everything else . It is too confusing and exhausting, so we generally abort the “I want to be fit” mission. Losing weight is a serious problem that thousands of people around the world face. Metabolic consequences such as the appearance of chronic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc.) are evident. So maintaining an adequate weight has been reported with an immediate action priority. Today’s diets are outdated because they don’t adapt to current circumstances and that’s why WE DON’T DO THEM. For several years the scheme managed has not evolved while the lives of people have. Today, we live in a world that is in a hurry, productivity has tripled and the demands of today’s world carry demands that force us to completely displace our food. What is needed is to solve the problem from the root, and this is only achieved by building new life habits from scratch. The objective of this article is to explain why, changing habits is the best strategy for weight loss and maintenance. The mistakes of a typical diet A typical diet is one that tells you to eat every day, you have a menu with fixed foods per day and generally have defined portions. The following example represents some commonly found diets: Breakfast Lunch Dinner: Look at this example. Monday1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125g of grilled breast + portion of vegetablesFatted cheese + Drink without milk Tuesday Skimmed yogurt + 60g oatmeal 125g smoked salmon + serving of vegetables 200g steamed rice + vegetable potion Wednesday1 hard-boiled egg + tea125gr of roast beef + ½ serving of avocado Vegetable soup Thursday1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125g of grilled breast + portion of vegetables1 can of tuna with 40g of whole wheat bread Friday + 60g of oatmeal125g of smoked salmon + portion of vegetablesFatted cheese + Milk-free drink Saturday1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125gr of roasted meat + ½ serving of avocado Vegetable soup Sunday 1 cup milk chocolate + turkey breast sandwich 125g grilled breast + vegetables portion 200g steamed rice + vegetable potion This diet makes the following mistakes: It is not personal, because everyone has different energy needs and a different daily routine. It would be difficult for you to take it to the individual context. It limits you, because the options it tells you to eat are square It does not take into account your tastes and preferences, so you have little adherence It focuses on the result and not on the process of change. It does not generate habits Portions are poorly designed. They are very strict and impossible to follow The effect is temporary. Weight loss is only achieved during the diet, once you return to your “normal” diet you also retake the initial weight or even gain weight (rebound effect) Diets are unnecessary, are not permanent and is a useless strategy when looking to maintain long-term results. In the second article we will see some myths of very interesting diets and that I have always thought so even before doing this research and see this article.
