95% of diets fail and it’s no wonder, as many people are given the wrong information to successfully lose weight. Of course, people are able to make dramatic changes very quickly with crash diets, but can revert back to their old habits and ways of thinking. Often people find themselves in a cycle of being motivated to stick to a diet regime, followed by a period of time resorting to old habits and feeling guilty. This leads to fluctuating weight, accompanied by periods of guilt with associated poor self esteem and confidence.
Our approach helps people to make healthy choices in relation to diet and develop healthy coping strategies for the future. Often people do not hold rational beliefs about relapses, there will be times where you feel you have made a mistake. When people are not mentally prepared for this, they begin to relate this loss to failure and it becomes a self defeating cycle that you are “stupid, a loser, or why do I bother”. We can help identify and prepare for these occasions. We aim to be realistic and to help give lifelong change which is sustainable, not just for a few weeks, but lasting into your future.
If your diet has developed into a negative habit it can feel difficult to break those metaphorical chains. We can assist you to make this transition to healthy eating, leading to a slimmer, trimmer, more confident you.
