Are you tired of the ceaseless cycle of dieting and the ensuing disappointment? You’re certainly not alone, and the statistics are nothing short of concerning. Research reveals that approximately 95% of individuals who embark on traditional diets inevitably regain the weight they’ve shed within just a few years. If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve personally experienced this disheartening rollercoaster.

The Problems with Traditional Diets

Traditional diets present a multitude of issues. While they often dangle the promise of swift results, these diets typically need to catch up when it comes to delivering sustainable, long-term outcomes. Moreover, they have a tendency to trigger metabolic adaptation, making it increasingly challenging for individuals to maintain weight loss over time. What’s more, the restrictive nature of these diets can foster an unhealthy relationship with food, leading to feelings of anxiety and decision paralysis.

Weight cycling, a recurring scenario among traditional dieters, has been extensively documented to affect overall health adversely. Traditional diets also frequently overlook addressing the underlying factors contributing to weight gain, rendering sustainable weight loss elusive. Their one-size-fits-all approach disregards individuals’ unique needs and challenges, perpetuating a cycle of disappointment.

Compounded by the culture of dieting and its propagation of unrealistic standards, these issues can give rise to feelings of guilt, shame, and anxiety. It becomes evident that a diet-free alternative is not only desired but essential.

The weekly check in call with my coach Annie was invaluable, the goals she set me each week were achievable and set me up for success with my weight loss journey and lifestyle change.

I’m very grateful for the guidance Annie gave me, I am confident that Annie has given me the tools I need to continue with my lifestyle change.

Or these words from Margo:
