It’s the first week of January and here you are all over again.
Last year it was the same thing.
And the year before that!
You’ve decided to make losing weight one of your New Year’s Resolutions.
Nothing has ever worked, but this time you’ve think you’ve got it: a sugar detox!
The only problem with your good intentions is that they are doomed to fail! Eliminating food groups altogether is usually a recipe for disaster.
Sugar detoxes usually fail because:
- they can actually lead to weight gain
- can lead to binges and other eating disorders
- can lead to a damage control mentality
- and they are not realistic long-term solutions.
Sugar is not in and of itself evil nor is it the sole contributor to fat gain. Drastic short-term changes are hardly realistic contributors to weight-loss.
Instead try the “one meal-a-day”challenge.
Basically you change one meal per day from your current daily habits.
If you struggle with breakfast, lunch, or dinner then pick that meal time and focus on eating a healthier version.
When it comes to losing weight just realize that the tortoise beats the hare.
Consistency over the long haul is what you should strive for.
Strive for progress not perfection!
