The Healthy New You team prefers to call our program a Lifestyle Change instead of a diet… but why? Read the blog post below for insight courtesy of our partners at Isagenix Canada!
When you’re on a diet, you typically restrict certain foods. Maybe that means cutting out sugar, reducing your carbohydrate intake, or saying no to dairy.
The modifications you make will likely help you lose weight but won’t be sustainable over time. Why? According to research conducted by UCLA, most people who lose weight on a diet will regain all or most of it back. Not exactly what you want to hear, is it? The good news is that when you chose a program that fits into your lifestyle, whether that’s using an Isagenix Weight Loss System or something else, you’re bound to find more sustainable success.
No. 5: Because It’s Not a Quick Fix
Diets can be tricky. Sometimes they promise unrealistic results and require you to make unhealthy choices. When you want to lose weight, it’s important to recognize that it takes commitment, hard work, time, and patience. A weight loss journey has ups and downs, twists and turns, and plenty of hurdles to overcome. But, people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
No. 4: Because It’s Not Just About Eating Certain Foods
If you’re always on the go, a diet can be challenging. Maybe you don’t have time to prepare a meal and need a program that can fit into your busy lifestyle while still allowing for healthy snacks and well-balanced meals.
Isagenix offers convenient meal replacement options like IsaLean® Shakes and IsaLean Bars that not only taste great but also offer the right amount of nutrition your body needs. And when you add in your own healthy food, you’re sure to feel satisfied.
No. 3: Because It’s Not Only About Weight Loss
While weight loss is obviously the number one reason why people diet, they often forget there are other components to achieving a healthy body.
Being mindful of the food you eat and how it is digested is also an important piece to the weight loss puzzle. Think about it. Many people have success when they cut carbohydrates from their diet. However, those carbs are often replaced with high-fat foods that could wreak havoc on their bodies.
Did you know the foods you eat can have a drastic impact on your digestive system? Sure, maybe you’ll lose weight, but how do you feel? To help support gut comfort and ease occasional gas and bloating, consider daily probiotics and digestive enzymes.
No. 2: Because It’s Not Always Backed by Research
Fad diets. They usually promise rapid weight loss and include a crazy eating plan that consists of something like three cups of grapes and a gallon of hot sauce. Well, maybe not quite like that, but you catch my drift. Sometimes you don’t know where the information or advice is coming from.
Whatever system or plan you choose, make sure the products and supplements are backed by research, have been developed by scientists and nutritionists, and have quality and safety top of mind.
No. 1: Because You Want Lasting Results
Most people who start a diet usually have a goal in mind. Raise your hand if you went on a diet before your high school reunion, your sister’s wedding, or your annual trip to the beach. We’ve all been there. And for good reason. Who doesn’t want to look and feel their best?
But, when you get home, where do you go from there? When you choose a new lifestyle, it doesn’t have an end date. When you shift your thinking, you realize that you are choosing to put your life, not just your body goals, first.
