In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, Deb and I talk about dieting, health and disease.
We share scientifically backed details about the reasons diets may be harmful and how you can begin to unchain yourself from the beliefs that you’ve been fed all of your life.
Even though you may still “know” that weight loss is the number one way to get healthy, stay healthy or do better, you’ll slowly (or super, super fast) have to realize that this is not the case. Health is a complex symposium and it’s been shown over and over again that weight loss is not the answer to every single malaise out there.
In fact, weight cycling (which will occur for up to 98% of all dieters) is a huge stressor on the body, which affects the body in negative ways and might contribute to chronic diseases that have been blamed on weight.
Instead of focusing on weight loss and feeling ashamed of the weight you have, you can learn to heal your body image and come back to a joyous life in the body you were born with, a body that you shouldn’t change based on beauty ideals.
In other words, your attempts at weight loss cause you harm! Is that really what you deem healthy?
You can fight all you want, but your biology will eventually win.
After all, we’re programmed to seek food, eat and make sure that we do not starve in order to survive and thrive.
There’s more to say, of course, which is what we do in this episode.
