5 Reasons “They” are Sabotaging Your Diet

When dieters have done everything right, but they are seeing no results, then there is something wrong. It’s a sad thing to say, but it’s even sadder to realize themselves. Someone is sabotaging their weight loss efforts. But why? People should be glad dieters are getting fit and healthy. It’s inconceivable that someone would want dieters to remain overweight. There are reasons, however. Are these familiar?

1. “But honey, I love you just the way you are”!

One of the number one reasons “they” sabotage dieter’s weight loss efforts is control. Why watch others drool over the dieter’s now svelte body, and run the risk of losing him/her? If the dieter is dependent on “their” goodwill and love, they won’t wander off. How much easier it is to convince the dieter that weight loss camp for adults and other methods of weight control are a total waste of time.

2. “What, my fried chicken isn’t good enough now”?

Suddenly, the dieter is part of a great community of people. The dieter belongs to a group of people now that they do not need to join. Family, friends and workmates feel left out. People who feel left out lash out. They shove unhealthy foods at the dieter to make them become “one of us” again.

3. “You haven’t been to Sunday dinner in ages. Don’t you love us anymore”?

Guilt is the number two reason “they” sabotage diets. Most of the food is perfectly fine, but some foods dieters have been taught are pure poison. It insults the cook, who might or might not understand the life and death struggle of the overweight.

4. “You look like a tomato stake. Here, have a sandwich”.

These might not be ugly efforts to remain feeling superior to the dieter, but it is possible. Others simply care enough about the dieter to make sure s/he does not become skeletal in their mission to lose pounds.

5. “I know you can’t eat KFC on your diet. See ya after lunch break”.

The tables are reversed, and the dieter or the graduate of adult weight loss camp feels odd man out. These might not be serious efforts to derail the weight loss train, but it can be a powerful sabotage tool.

These 6 Things Could Be Sabotaging Your Weight Loss Effort

You’re eating fresh fruits and vegetables, exercising and taking a multivitamin. Your family is onboard with the weight loss thing. However, the scale doesn’t move. Why? Folks do things without thinking such as finishing what’s left on the kids’ plates after supper or dipping their green pepper strips in a vat of ranch dressing. It’s these automatic things that sabotage folk’s weight loss efforts. Here are six to keep an eye on.

1. Not Eating Breakfast
Not eating a hearty breakfast leaves the body empty and hungry. It will demand food, so its owner will munch all morning or overeat at lunch. One cup of whole grain cereal with milk, one cup of fruit and black coffee is less than 200 calories and fills up tummies until lunch.

2. Eating Late at Night
Adult weight loss camps attendees don’t do this except at home. There, they clean up after supper and do the wash before bed. They’ll need energy from food to accomplish the tasks. Either eat closer to bedtime, or wait to do the wash during the day. Calories will then go to energy and not fat.

3. Liquid Calories
Are dieters drinking frappacinos and Cokes? How many per day? Those are calories about which no one thinks twice. Water and black coffee are the only two beverages containing no calories. Even vitamin waters are packed with sugars, so go clear and black and you’ll be okay.

4. Not Snacking
Snacking is okay, because it fuels the muscles. Dieters should eat something every three hours to (a) avoid binge eating and (b) to keep the blood sugar level. Make sure they’re the right kind of snacks. Peanut butter and whole wheat crackers, apple or peach slices, homemade trail mix with nuts and whole grain cereals have fewer calories than processed foods.

5. Exercising Too Much
Too much exercise can be just as bad as not enough. When plateaus are hit, folks tend to give up. Instead, work out perhaps four days per week. Spend the other days gently walking or picking fresh fruits and veggies from participating farms. The idea is not to burn yourself out.

6. About Low-Fat
Low-fat foods are not good. The body’s mechanisms are made of fats, so they need fats to operate. People tend to see low-fat as an invitation. In fact, these products contain calories, most of them empty. Using fats wisely will get dieters farther than low-fat items.
