No One-Size-Fits-All Diet Journey

- POSTED ON: Jun 08, 2017


There is No “one-size-fits-all” Diet Journey.

This Truth drives many people crazy.

“I’m not losing as fast as this person.”  
“I have to eat less than that person.” 
“I can eat more than that person.” 
“This person eats everything and still loses weight.”
“That person maintains without ever having to exercise.”

You know what all these people have in common?

NONE of them is me!

My body is different from anybody else’s.  In some ways, my body works in similar ways as the bodies of others,  but in other ways, it doesn’t. 

This has an impact on how I choose to live my life.

I find it important not to compare myself, my body, my eating, my routine, my exercise, or my progress to anybody else. That’s a hard thing to actually do, and sometimes I have to work to force myself to stop doing it. But it’s important for me to arrive at that place where the only person I compare myself to is myself.

I hold fast to MY rules.

The world is full of diet "experts" who are eager to tell me EXACTLY how I should eat; how I should think; what I should want; and how I should live my life. 

Just because some other dieter does X,Y, or Z, or doesn’t have to do X, Y, or Z, doesn’t mean that I can Do it, or can Stop Doing it. Over time, I have developed an understanding of MY physical Body and how it responds, as well as how my Mind and my Spirit are involved with my own Thinking, my own Emotions, and my own Behavior.

I work to keep my mind open enough to listen to and consider the experiences and opinions of other people, but ultimately, all decisions about how I live my life are mine.  It is important for me to be the one who chooses what is right for ME, and to do what works for Me, personally.

If there's a misleading statement about eating plans out there, it's, "If I can do it, you can do it." It really just depends, no? And I'm repeating myself whenI say that there is definitely an element of luck, luck to find something that works for anyone all around: socially, healthfully, pleasurably, etc., even if it means exerting effort. No one can predict the combination.
