Well, I just got myself in trouble with all the Keto people. I get it, eating according to Keto is all the rage. Bacon…good! Bananas…Bad! I have heard it time and again how you can only lose weight when you are doing Keto. I am NOT, by any means, slamming on Keto. People can eat however they want. The point I try to get across is there is more than one way.
The reality with most diets, at least those that are worth anything, is you have to cut sugar and processed foods, while eating more real food. That is the key to losing weight and, more importantly, keeping it off. We can do anything for a short period of time to lose pounds. The problem comes about when people don’t have an exit strategy to those short term diets. I do a 10 day shred with a group. One thing I stress is that you have to have a plan for after the 10 days. Just going back to old habits won’t do a thing for you. And that is what leads people to believe there is only one way to lose weight.
Try changing your eating for a solid year and see what happens. When you are true to that, I can almost guarantee great results!
Until next time…
