Episode 33: The Pitfalls of Dieting


Weight Loss for Food Lovers with Molly Zemek

The Pitfalls of Dieting



Summary:

In this episode, Molly talks about the pitfalls of dieting, the myths surrounding diets, and what you can do to avoid them and have success in your weightloss journey.


There are a few missteps in traditional weight loss thought. The first is that lining up numbers will give success. The “all-or-nothing” thinking of restricting foods you like is another part of this mentality. A third common thought is that you will always feel starving if you want to feel successful. Related to that is the idea that you will never have any fun while dieting. Even worse—you may think you’ll only be happy when you’re thin.
