Unhappy Am I the only one who hates dieting?

Hi I'm Cari and new to this forum. Hoping to find some like-minded buddies. Am I the only one who hates counting points or calories or just generally feeling as if my life is controlled by diets, diets and more diets? It's just crazy how many diets I've tried in my life...you name it, I've probably done it! I'm pretty sure I could write 'diet expert' on my business card as an additional qualification. It's so exhausting.

Maybe you are one who should be posting on the Intuitive Eating thread. You eat what you want, only when you are truly hungry, and you stop when you are satisfied, not full. There's no counting, no off-limit foods.

Intuitive Eating.....eat when you're hungry. stop when satisfied

Hi Carl,

You will have to change your thinking - permanently!

- I have been around dieters all my life and all they think about is diet, dieting and food. Weight control is a lifestyle issue.
-Food is not the enemy. Sure, some people are born with a tendency to pack the weight on while others are naturally skinny. But it still comes down to lifestyle: grabbing the mini-workouts such as climbing the stairs, walking, and not going hungry, ever, to prevent yo-yoing.
-Carl, attack it from multiple angles. When you start to feel the benefits, you will want to do it more. However, this might take a few weeks to kick in.
-And throw away the scales. Cut out the chemically laced junk food. Your loosening clothes will tell you everything without the scales.

Best regards,
Richard Barrett
