Welcome to the official companion website of the most progressive book on health and wellness: Transformative Nutrition; The Ultimate Guide to Healthy and Balanced Living.
Pick a letter from the alphabet, any letter at all. I guarantee there are multiple diets that are named starting with letter you picked. Seriously though, from A to Z there are many diets for each letter. It is like we have a buffet of diets with hundreds of different ones to pick and choose from. There are diets for practically everything you can think of. There are some really complicated ones and some that are basic and simple. There are many that seem absolutely ridiculous, and even dangerous. You also have diets that require you to obsessively avoid fat, or count calories and carbs all day long. There are some that make me laugh uncontrollably because of how downright hilarious they occur to me. Then there are ones that make me sad, because they cause you to be so fanatical to the point where you appear to have some sort of eating disorder. My personal favorite is the raw and vegetarian or vegan food diets. I have seen (and experienced myself) how some of them have you live in a way where people start thinking you are very strange. There are many conflicting diets and dietary theories about what foods are right to eat, and what foods are not good for you. The doctor says one thing while the scientist and nutritionist say another. It seems like every week there are new studies or evidence either supporting or arguing the effectiveness, benefits, or safety of foods. What is the truth? Who do you believe and/or trust?
With all of this conflicting information, it is really easy to obsess and quite difficult to stay focused. Do you find it overwhelming to pick just one diet and be completely confident about it? Many diets are contradictory to each other while others are just plain unrealistic. In my book, I explain the creation and purpose of a diet. I also explain why diets alone do not work, and what does work. In my book, I share my non-diet approach for a time period currently experiencing the highest rates of obesity and unhealthy, imbalanced living.
You are as unique as the next person. Foods that work well for you may or may not work for me, or your brother, or my cousin, or the random person on the street. One person’s medicine could be another person’s poison. Are you starting to understand why diets do not work? It is pretty simple, isn’t it?
There is no diet that works for everyone and there never will be!
When considering weight loss or “changing your diet”, the most important question to ask yourself is this: Do I want to lose weight or do I want to live a healthy and balanced life? In other words, are you looking for instant gratification, or are you willing to make a commitment to your health? As you can see, the first one is fairly simple. If you want to lose weight, most weight loss diets will serve that purpose. However, be prepared to find that weight again in the future. It may take days, weeks, or even months; but will probably find you again. Unless you address the underlying causes of being overweight in the first place, the weight is most likely going to eventually return. The second one is going to take some work. That is what this whole book is about. You didn’t become overweight overnight, did you? I know I didn’t. Therefore, you aren’t going to become skinny overnight either. Even if you could magically wake up 50 pounds lighter, do you honestly think all of the mental and emotional attachments to being overweight will disappear? It took me years to rid myself of all the negative thoughts and emotions associated with being “fat.” It could have been a lot less time, but I resisted it to the max. When you resist something, it just becomes more difficult to achieve the results you want. Unfortunately, instant gratification is not going to bring happiness and self-love. You may look amazing after losing 50 pounds, BUT…
- How do you genuinely feel about yourself when you look in the mirror?
- Do you love everything about the person staring back at you, unconditionally?
- How much do you love and accept yourself as you are right now?
- Do you respect yourself enough to not repeat the choices that made you overweight in the first place?
- Do you have the necessary tools to get through the self-sabotaging thoughts and feelings that may return?
- Do you know how to use the tools?
You must get real with yourself! What are your expectations? Once you have an idea about the answers to those questions, then you will be able to create a plan of action for yourself. Having easily attainable objectives is a great starting point. Then, from there you can create realistic goals as an end result. This is where a health coach can support you the most. Many people think they can do it on their own, and many people CAN do it on their own. At the same time, many people need some sort of mentor. Someone they can trust, who will hold them accountable to reaching their goals. Think of it as similar to a personal trainer. They create goals with you, not for you. You meet with them once or twice a week, and they slowly progress you closer to those goals. They give you some basic nutritional suggestions, and kind of get to know you personally (depends on the trainer and openness of the client). Health coaching is very similar, but also quite different. Health coaching is progressively designed to dig much deeper into the abyss of your health and life, encompassing all aspects of you that make you who and what you are.
