Tag Archives: deprivation
I like you hate to diet for weight loss, let alone starting one that requires me to deprive my body of healthy and good tasting foods to achieve results. All deprivation diets require a lot of will power which slowly reduces morale, creates depression and ultimately failure for most. I much prefer a weight management program that includes healthy eating and fun activity, not deprivation dieting and grueling exercise like you see recommended by many published health experts. A lot of health experts have no ideal on how to customize a healthy body, mind and soul management solution that will meet every health profile.
Our societal gatherings usually involve consuming foods like every other culture. To follow a diet plan that excludes cultural or certain types of foods is simply ridiculous. After all, we’re talking total calorie input here. A diet plan followed to the letter that would prevent one from socializing at gatherings simply because they don’t have the will power not to eat certain foods is ridiculous. In this event, deprivation diet plans do not promote a very positive experience and threatens non-participation in important cultural-social and family experiences. Also deprivation diets for most will only create a state of anxiety, panic and depression. For those that have wrestled with weight problems all their lives, “family and social gatherings that involve food are a big deal.” Those that have not dealt with obesity in their lives have a hard time relating to traditional social eating habits and what food deprivation has on one’s psyche. Everyone requires comfort in this life, for most comfort food boosts morale and staves depression. Balanced food consumption keeps the body healthy regardless of cultural foods. For all nutritionally balance cultural foods can be healthy for your body.
