Who else feels like mainstream diet culture is becoming increasingly toxic and restrictive? If you didn’t steal food from a baby, then you shouldn’t feel guilty about food. Ever.
Yet virtually all “popular” diets enforce super strict regimes and even arbitrary restrictions. These can cause guilt, anxiety, and even disordered, emotional eating.
When this happens, our body sends 5 specific warning signs. Warning signs we tend to ignore.
We wrote this health insider’s guide to help you quickly identify these 5 warning signs.
Read every word carefully because if you’re experiencing 3 or more of the 5 warning signs, your diet might be doing more harm than good.
#1 – Weight loss is not just hard. It feels torturous.
If you keep starting your diet motivated, but by the end of the day, you find yourself deep in a bag of potato chips, it may not be your fault. It may be your diet.
Of course, willpower does play a role in losing weight. But uncontrollable food cravings and constant emotional eating are signs of something worse.
It’s our body’s cry for help that we’re not giving it all the nutrients it needs. And when you follow a generic diet that’s made for the masses, it’s almost guaranteed that you won’t cover your body’s needs.
When that happens, your brain sends a signal to keep eating.
A personalized diet has the exact opposite effect.
Meals are hand-picked by a nutritionist so that they fully cover your body’s nutritional needs. This brings hunger, emotional eating, cravings, and back-and-forth weight gain to a full stop.
Best, when the diet is personalized, you feel better on it, than off it.
It’s an easier approach to losing weight to getting healthy.
#2 – You’re feeling low on energy. As if you’re frequently running on empty.
Energy levels are a powerful indicator of whether your nutrition is good for you or not.
If you constantly feel tired, don’t sleep well, or need to keep chugging caffeine to slog through the day — these are almost surefire signs of a bad diet.
A bad diet causes dehydration, micro-nutrient deficiency (low energy, brain fog, lower sexual desire), and is often packed with unnecessary sugar. Eating sugar causes more sugar cravings, which cause even more weight gain and tiredness.
All that can change with simple diet modifications, adapted to your individual needs. Personalizing your diet is the ultimate advantage.
With the help of a personalized diet, you can “teach” your body to rely on more stable fuel — utilizing your body’s fat for energy.
It’s the quickest way to experience transformation, while also improving your energy levels and mood.
#3 – You experience ongoing constipation, gas, and other digestive discomforts.
Our bowels should move every time we eat a meal. It’s our body’s natural mechanism for making room for new nutrition.
But when our diet is poor, we get digestive discomfort. This manifests itself in all sorts of ways, including constipation, gas, and even belly bloat.
If you experience these symptoms you’re likely not getting enough fiber. Try bumping it up by eating fiber-rich foods like leafy greens and nuts.
As a general guideline, the recommended intake is 25 grams of fiber per day for women and 38 grams per day for men.
Please remember that for best results, it’s always better to have a personalized approach to nutrition.
#4 – You’re constantly watching calories, counting carbs, and thinking about food.
These are all good habits to develop, but they shouldn’t overwhelm you or take a lot of space in your life.
Thankfully, counting calories, carbs, and planning meals are no longer necessary. Technology has progressed so much in the past few years.
People can “hire” a nutritionist for a few cents a day that does all the work for them right from their mobile, down to calculating the last calorie.
It’s a great way to develop a flexible relationship with food with minimal effort.
Plus, it leads to better health outcomes and more sustainable weight loss because it makes dieting easier to follow.
#5 – Your diet is not enjoyable.
The best way to diet is to do a diet you can follow. And the easiest diet to follow is a diet you enjoy.
Because if losing weight and improving your health isn’t fun, then what’s the purpose?
Many people get disappointed because they’ve only followed general diets they’ve found in magazines and online blogs. The meal plans are restricting, bland, repetitive, and soon, boring.
Most importantly, they weren’t made to match YOUR taste buds.
But what if you could lose weight by following a diet that includes ALL your favorite foods? Wouldn’t weight loss be easy?
The Solution To Not Losing Weight
For people who haven’t found success with traditional dieting, we recommend a personalized ketogenic diet.
The ketogenic diet is high in fats and proteins. It’s one of the most satiating diets and includes foods like eggs, bacon, steak, peanut butter, and so on.
