It is hard to break free from dieting when we are constantly being sold “new! better than ever! miracle diets“.
The problem is that all diets have a terrible track record of being sustainable (95% of people gain back all the weight) and they cause us so much mental and physical harm (hello, binge eating!). Being able to objectively go through your past attempts at dieting can bring the facts to the forefront. They have never been sustainable, they have brought misery and hunger and really did a number on our relationship with food.
Download this worksheet to take a look back on your history with diets and get a more objective view. It can help release you from blaming yourself for any weight regain and put the blame where it should go- onto the diet and diet culture.
