These methods may lead to temporary weight loss, but they can have harmful effects in the long run. And guess what? Once you return to your normal eating habits and lifestyle behaviours, boom! The weight tends to come back, and sometimes even more. This creates a cycle of yo-yo dieting that is not beneficial for your overall health.
I always advocate for setting long-term goals that prioritise your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Rather than fixating on short-term events or specific times of the year, it’s important to view your body and health as a valuable long-term investment. This perspective helps shift the focus towards sustainable lifestyle changes that can be maintained and realistic goals that can be achieved.
Maintain a well-balanced diet: Include complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats, vegetables, and fruits.
Practice portion control: Avoid overeating and be mindful of your serving sizes.
Stay hydrated: Drink enough
