One of the biggest reasons people struggle so much with losing weight is because they take the all or nothing approach.
They literally throw everything out that they consider to be unhealthy.
Some people of course think this type of approach is a good thing.
They view it as a high level of commitment to the task at hand.
True enough, throwing all the bad food out can be seen as commitment.
But it can also be setting you up for failure.
The Big Problem With an All or Nothing Mindset
Anytime you abruptly make changes to your diet, your body will start to push back.
You may not notice this push back immediately, but eventually it will take over.
Once this happens you will revert back to your old eating habits.
The same habits that got you where you are now, out of shape, and overweight.
We are all creatures of habit.
We are accustomed to doing certain things, a certain way, all the time.
Your current weight is nothing more than a reflection of the habits you developed.
So the key to taking your weight loss results to the next level is to change your habits.
Doing so, however, is no easy feat.
This is why you will never be successful by taking the all or nothing approach.
You have to focus on changing your habits first, then everything else will fall into place.
When you don’t change your habits, that’s how you end up on the dieting roller coaster.
