We've all seen it. Someone goes on a diet, loses the weight, then in due time gains the weight back -- with "interest." In other words, many diets can be temporary plans with temporary results. Do some plans over-promise? Well, I think we both know the answer to that question. So what gives? I think most folks embark on a diet with the sincere plan and hope of permanent results. Yet these results are not always delivered, and disappointment and feelings of failure ensue.
The question becomes: Is your goal weight loss? Or is your goal ultimately weight control? If it's control, which I hope it is, then begin today to move forward from the "temporary plan" mindset i.e., a set amount of time to lose the set amount of weight.
