This is part 1 of a 2-part episode on common weight loss mistakes and how to overcome them.
Mistakes covered in this episode include focusing too much on forbidden foods, relying solely on willpower, using overly restrictive diets, getting caught in a cycle of self-blame, and not prioritizing sleep.
- The episode emphasizes developing a positive relationship with food, listening to your body's signals, getting creative with healthy alternatives, practicing self-love and gratitude, letting go of guilt, and optimizing sleep habit.
- Avoid labeling foods as "good" or "bad" and banning entire food groups. This leads to cravings and binge eating
- Relying on willpower alone is not sustainable long-term. Work with your mind and body
- Overly restrictive diets deprive you of nutrients and satisfaction. Get creative with alternatives
- Self-blame creates a vicious cycle of stress and emotional eating. Practice self-love and gratitude
