The death of the DIET

Posted on Aug 25, 2011 in Habits, Nutrition

Diet, Diet, Diet! There are so many diets available on the market today, each with its own ideas and strategies.

As health professionals at I Choose Awesome we hear a different myth or strategy every day, it’s confusing.

We don’t like the word ‘DIET’ because if you scrub out the ‘T’ your left with’ DIE’! And this is exactly what can happen to your metabolism if you diet. Instead we must have good nutritional habits or follow a nutritional program.

Society has gone and made nutrition far too complicated, we need to get back to basics, and from our experience we find education is the key. Once people understand how their metabolism works they can make smart food choices.

Over the coming weeks we will be posting articles about how your metabolism works, and the simple lifestyle strategies you can use to accelerate it.

With 1 in 4 Australians now considered overweight or obese it is time for an overhaul of our nutritional education system. If you are interested in losing weight or maintaining healthy eating habits the posts over the coming weeks are for you. It may be stuff you’ve heard before but are you doing it?

Use these blogs as a reference, reminder and motivator of awesome nutritional habits. Remember nothing tastes as good as being lean feels!
