“Calorie restricted diets are pointless because they are hard to maintain and you just end up putting the fat back on once you stop the diet”
I have NEVER understood this argument against dieting.
To me, it’s just a back handed compliment:
“Sure, you’re losing tons of fat now and you look great, but as soon as you stop dieting and start eating like the rest of us again your just going to gain all that fat back! ”
“Really effective weight training programs are pointless because they are hard to maintain and you just end up losing all the muscle when you go back to being sedentary”
“Getting out of debt is pointless because it’s really, really hard, and once you go off your budget and start spending like crazy, you just end up in debt again!”
To me, this is just the arguments made by the defeated, the lazy and the jealous.
My advice? Ignore these arguments, and stay the course.
