I Don’t Diet
Ok so we’re a month into the New Year and I’m curious…
How many of you are still being faithful to your New Year Diet?
I read some statistics that were interesting…
- 1 in 4 people are on a diet at any given time
- 98% of diets fail
Those aren’t very promising statistics.
I’ll be honest. I don’t diet. Not because I don’t need to but because I know I won’t sustain it and I end up feeling depressed and frustrated. I’m a moderation girl. I don’t do extremes well and so there has never been anything very appealing to me about trying to radically control my intake.
In lieu of dieting, I try to operate from these core beliefs:
- Regular exercise. I’m obsessive about this. Remember, “I run for treats” :).
- Balance and moderation. I give myself daily goals for vegetable intake, limited carbs and sweets.
So I’m curious…
Do you diet regularly and what makes it successful for you?
If you don’t diet, what do you do to stay fit and healthy?
