Dieting tips are everywhere.
Everyone knows that eating all you want of candy is the wrong thing to do if you want to lose weight. Everyone knows you need to cut down your daily food intake and the amount of calories per day in order to start reducing your weight. Everyone knows that diets help. Everyone knows how to how to start a diet.
Everyone knows that eating the South Beach way can accomplish this cut-down of food. We all know there are many other diets that help you do that as well. There’s Atkins, and The Fat Flush Plan, and very sensible Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig with its one-on-one support. There’s Nutri-System that everyone hears about, and you don’t even need to make your own food for that or for Jenny.
Everyone knows that exercising is better than not exercising, both for weight and fitness.
Everyone knows that movie stars and models diet, eat not much at all, and often their regimens get published in the tabloids—and then a lot of us try to exactly copy their weight-loss steps.
Everyone knows that in today’s social setting, a woman is not considered ‘hot’ or beautiful or even nice looking when she is overweight.
Everyone knows that moderation is a good thing, especially when it comes to eating. Everyone knows that it doesn’t help you achieve long-term weight loss to have a food meltdown and then can’t stop eating until you eat everything in sight.
So, if everyone knows so much, then how come so many of us weigh too much? How come the statistics on successful weight-loss are pretty dismal? How come there are an incredible number of women who struggle with their weight day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year?
Here’s something else women know, when they are being honest with themselves: Their emotional lives—their psychological selves—have everything to do with the way they are eating, and the way they can’t stop eating.
Could this be the underutilized, underestimated, often ignored factor that affects a woman’s ability to lose unwanted weight no matter how many weight-loss facts and weight-loss strategies she has at her fingertips?
