Finding the Beauty Within While Dieting And why you want to adapt a lifestyle adjustment more than a “Diet” is important to your long-range success.
There seems to be one universal truth when it comes to dieting. No one really enjoys the process though we all eagerly await and anticipate the results. The problem is that far too many men and women around the world focus so much on dieting and perfecting their external beauty that they forget the beautiful people they are inside along the way. Our culture is becoming obsessive about the perfect body and the perfect body image. Guess what, that external beauty will continue to change as we age so there is more to a diet than just the foods we eat, it needs to be a lifestyle adjustment. I write a lot about the “Keto Diet” but it is much more than a diet, to make it worth your time, don’t look at it as “I will just do this until I lose the weight” because that is not going to work. Look at it as understanding all the pieces and making it a lifestyle commitment and find the inner Beauty you have inside you what will carry you through life.
If there was one message that should make it out to everyone dieing it is this: dieting should be more about health than beauty. You should not need to conform to some preconceived notion of what is or should be beautiful. If we create a world where everyone looks alike it would be rather boring in the end.
You need to focus on being happy with who you are in order to achieve the greatest dieting success you will have ever dared dream. Many of use eat out of emotional need or a simple need for comfort when we are depressed, hurting, uncertain, or simply in unfamiliar territory. It is possible to avoid those pitfalls as a part of the new you. While you are working on losing weight you will also want to work on creating a new mindset. You should want to aim at being the healthiest you there is. It really means that your focus should be more on coming to terms with who you are as a person than in creating a new person or imagine behind which you can hide.
Dieting for the most part is an opportunity for many men and women to become someone else. Whether that someone is the person you used to be or some person you think you want to be, you are quite unlikely find to happiness at any weight until you accept you for the person you are inside. This is often a difficult process but one that is well worth the effort. Once you’ve accepted the person inside you can address the specific needs that often lead to the excess weight to begin with. Depression is a common factor in weight gain as well as an inability to lose weight. By finding contentment depression will no longer be a controlling factor in you life. For many, this is the freedom they need from their weight problems while others will find there are still hurdles remaining.
The important thing is that you stop allowing the person you are to be defined by what the scales say about you. Once you’ve reached a point in your life where you are happy with your appearance and feel that your personal fitness level is in hand you should discuss things with your doctor and see what he or she has to say.
Finding the beauty within is often the most important aspect of dieting that there can be. Take the time while dieting to get to know the person you are and introduce that person to the person you want to be. In time the two will work out a healthy compromise and you will find that image isn’t really everything no matter what the glossy magazines try to tell you.
And weather you follow a ketogenic lifestyle, a Paleo lifestyle, a Mediterranean lifestyle find the one that works for you and make a commitment to learn all that you can and follow it and you will discover the real you along the way.
