I don't believe in diets. I don't believe in them being successful. And I don't believe restriction and deprivation are the answer. Results can be achieved in other ways. And I bet that you'll end up actually feeling happy, fulfilled, and, YES, inspired and empowered versus depleted, emotionally and physically hungry, and lost. It's been proven in multiple studies that diets backfire—because not only do 95 percent of all diets fail, but 30 to 60 percent of people end up regaining any weight they lost plus more.
What's really needed is the perfect combination of body empowerment, learning how to heal your complicated relationship with food—any woman who's ever been on a diet will need to do this—and learning how to achieve your results in an actual balanced, intuitive, and nutritionally sound way. Cutting out major food groups, meal skipping, body shaming, cheat meals, the concept of eating healthy for a certain amount of days per week—all need to go. For good. You deserve so much better!
