The Reason 90% Of Diets Fail And 4 Things To Do Instead

0  comments

Why do 90% of people fail their diets?

Ever since the internet became a thing we have been conditioned to *click* and receive.

Instant gratification is part of our lives at every turn.

Post a new photo...get a like.

Order something online…it’s on your doorstep in 2 days..

Turn on Spotify …listen to any song you want.

It’s just so….gratifying... getting something shortly after you decide you want it.

Anymore, we can accomplish a huge list of things on our phone, all without getting off the couch.

And we have become used to it. We’ve come to expect it even. We point, and click, and let that sweet dopamine coat our senses.

This causes a massive problem when it comes to diets and losing weight.

Because there’s no such thing as instant results.

You have to work hard at your diet/your exercise plan for MULTIPLE WEEKS before you see literally anything happen.

You’ve probably had people tell you the opposite because they want your money.

Juicing is a great example of this:
“Lose 5kgs in 5 days using our super juicing diet cleanse weight loss plan!”

Deep down you know it’s a lie (it’s borderline mathematically impossible to lose that much body fat in that timeframe).

But people sign up because they want to feel that magical feeling when they see the scale drop after a few days. That instant gratification.

Unfortunately, because it’s all water and carb weight it comes right back…

They get discouraged and enter into a vicious cycle of try to lose weight…fail…try something more extreme…fail….

Again and again and again.

People who achieve results (and sustain them) recognise that there is no easy fix.

There is no instant gratification.

They trust in a plan, commit to it for a few MONTHS, and awesome things start happening.

- They look better with their shirt off.
- Their trousers are less tight.
- They feel better in their own skin.
- They start getting compliments.

You don’t have to do crazy fads for a week to lose weight. You need to do the basics consistently.

  1. Workout 3-4 times a week.
  2. Make sure 90% of your meals are properly portioned.
  3. Eat more vegetables.
  4. Eat enough protein.

Executing the basics consistently is the one thing that everyone who has lost weight (and kept it off) has done 👍
