“Adherence – the degree to which participants continued… was most strongly associated with weight loss”
I had to share a little extract from an article, which is an oldie but a goodie. Inspired today by a dude I follow on Instagram.
The extracts below will blow your mind. Well, not really. Unless you are a nutrition geek like me. It is so simple, no secrets. These type of studies have confirmed what is obvious over and over, people wanting the secret to fat loss just can’t accept that they have to look long term and work on adherence as a priority. ‘People’ simply want the blue pill.
This annoying ‘industry’ that I am a part of give nutrition and diet advice that is, most of the time, stuck in the ‘one size fits all approach’, which is so far from the truth it hurts. It is all about commercialising the one blue pill diet that is often simply a specific macronutrient composition that ignores lifestyle factors.
I’ll work on figuring out what will work for your unique lifestyle and preferences to improve your eating habits for health or fitness or whatever floats your boat.
“the best approach is to choose a plan they find easiest to adhere to over the long term”
I’ve said in the past that adherence and sustainability is the reason diets fail!
