The Problem with Diets

The problem with diets is that they are diets.

Some diets work for some people.

Some people need to be on diets.

But there is no diet that works for all people.

In fact, no matter how many people a diet helps, there is always a small group of people who it will also harm.

Therefore, if you agree, then, there is a chance than any diet which you might try could harm you.

Now, let’s move from the philosophical to the practical.

It’s not likely that if you try a well-tested diet, and practice it with common sense, that you will be harmed.

But it’s also likely that the more I tell you what you can’t eat, the harder that diet will be to follow for the rest of your life.

What if you could eat anything that you wanted to instead?

What if you, instead of dieting, said ‘no’ to dieting?

What if you just ate food (not not-food), and, practiced things like habit building, decision making, and awareness?

The diet of no diet may be the best of all.
