Sure they get older, more experienced, wiser (hopefully) but their inner nature? I think it stays the same.
Which is why I think diet rules are silly – They try to change you.
As I type this I’m eating an espresso brownie while drinking an Americano – This habit isn’t going to change anytime soon. So any diet that tries to force me to quit this habit is going to be met with resistance, and ultimately failure.
For dieting to be successful, you need to understand yourself.
If you don’t understand yourself, you can’t really respect yourself and therefore you are easily influenced by others…Jumping from diet to diet, fad to fad.
To be successful at weight loss and changing your body you need to know who you are and what you like, so in a way you need to be self-reliant
Self Reliance Starts with recognizing who you are and what you have to work with and what works best for you.
You need to know the foods you really can’t do without. The ‘bad’ habits that you have that you aren’t willing to give up.
You also need to know what you have to work with.
What you are and are not going to eat is up to you. This allows you to work with your own inner-nature while dieting. Diet Rules do the opposite – Try to force you to change in a way you may not be willing to change.
Bottom Line- Don’t think of weight loss as trying to change yourself, think of it as improving yourself in a manner that fits who you are.
Success will come naturally this way.
