What is YOU On a Diet?
Sometimes referred to as The YOU Diet, it is truly a lifestyle approach to weight loss. No quick fixes and gimmicks here! No wonder even Oprah jumped on the YOU Diet bandwagon!
What are "The Rules"?
YOU On a Diet Rule #1: Make Your Eating Plan Automatic
Rule #2: Remember That Waist Is More Important Than Weight
I like this concept because it emphasizes the point that your health matters...
...not just what size dress or pants you can fit into.
Your health is affected not only by how much body fat you have, but also by where it's located on your body. If you carry your excess weight around your waist, you have a greater risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke and high blood pressure.
Rule #3: Stay Satisfied
As I always say, a bad decision and a big portion usually happen when you allow yourself to get overly hungry, so staying satisfied just makes sense.
Rule #4: Add Support
Everyone needs support. Or, as I always say...
...even the best athletes need a coach.
The YOU On a Diet website has a nice community with message boards, and a feature to help you find an online dieting buddy...
...someone to support and encourage you and someone to whom you can be responsible.
Rule #5: Know That It's OK to Make Mistakes
Just make a "YOU-turn" to change course. I couldn't have said it better myself.
YOU On a Diet Cons
Eating the same things everyday (for breakfast and lunch) certainly works...
...but it's also really boring! While You On a Diet is really intended to be a "lifestyle," I don't think it's realistic to believe you are going to eat the same things everyday for the rest of your life! After all, variety is the spice of life.
