How do I define “dieting”???
“Dieting” is any attempt to micromanage your eating or your body. Even if YOU think you’re eating enough food, often your body does not. Even if YOU think you should be eating less (or no) carbs, your body probably disagrees. Even if YOU are eating plenty, but feeling guilty and stressed over every bite, your body notices, and responds.
Most people don’t understand that 1200 is barely enough for a toddler. That 1600 calories was enough to emaciate men and make them feel insane around food in a study from the 1940s. And, that after years of dieting, the body requires WAY more calories than we think is “normal” in order to rebalance and compensate for the years operating in conservation mode. (If you want more information on all of this, I recommend The F*ck It Diet book if you haven’t read it

You deserve way better! Even though dieting is common, it’s not healthy. It is MORE than possible to get out of this cycle. In the next email, I’m going talk about what a good relationship with food actually looks and feels like. If you’re too impatient to wait, and you haven’t read it yet, you can read alllll about it now in The F*ck It Diet book – you can also read the first chapter free HERE.
And if you’ve read the book, but are looking for more support, stay tuned for details about a new 8-Week F*ck It Diet Course, that goes hand in hand with the book.
