3. Conflicting dieting messages confuse you
Fad diets often come with weird and wonderful food rules and regulations, for example, no carbohydrates, no sugar, no caffeine, no fat, no enjoyment, only cabbage soup is allowed etc. Following multiple of these rules often leaves you with little room to move in terms of what you can actually eat! This builds diet anxiety over time. If you find diets frustrating and confusing they may have left you demotivated and at a loss as to what to actually do next to reach your goals. Nutrition education and knowing the why behind food choices will not only help you to spot an unhelpful fad diet but will allow you to feel confident in your food choices on your healthy fat loss journey. You need a process you are able to trust, not a quick fix.
