95% of all dieters will regain their lost weight within 5 years. 35% of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting. Of those, 20-25% progress to partial or full-syndrome eating disorders.
Dieting places emphasis on quick weight loss, instead of emphasizing life-long health, wellness, and happiness. If any of the diet industry’s products worked, they wouldn’t be making billions of dollars a year from telling you you’re not good enough.
Re-learn how to eat intuitively and stop classifying foods as “good” or “bad.” You need food to survive! Stop dieting and start enjoying food again, rather than feeling guilty about it.
