Why Dieting Makes You Fat? – Part 2

As promised, here is the second instalment of  the weight loss post,  spelling out exactly why you should kick your dieting into touch for good, this is what I call the psycho bit!  Cutting to the chase - the reason your diet is not working has nothing to do with fat cells or how much water your drink or your genes in fact it’s all in your head...Kind of….Bear with me, I'll explain and I'll make it quick.     Very few diets ever take into consideration the universal law – where the mind goes the body follows and yes I am talking about visualisation.  Now, don't get me wrong, if it really was  as simple as visualising ourselves into a size 8 bikini we’d all be Victoria Secret models, but we all know that it's not that easy… Although, seeing ourselves the way we want to be, is definitely part of it, how we feel about things and more specifically, how we feel about our food is a huge part of long term weight loss success.     We all start every diet with the best of intentions and some people do really, really well, exercising the self-control and discipline of a seasoned military commander.  Carefully planning every meal for days in advance, keeping an eagle eye on both portion...

Why is Dieting Making You Fat?

If I were to tell you that the biggest pre-indicator of a person gaining weight in the future, was them being on a diet…Would it be best if I followed that golden nugget of information, by swiftly running for cover?  Probably...     Whereas 50% of the people reading this, will be shouting, or at least thinking of some rather colourful expletives, as  the opening paragraph of the post starts to compute; the other 50% will have a bemused, slightly confused look on their face.  You say what?  Unfortunately people, what I say is very true, diets make you fatter.  'But what about the Atkins?   You can’t be dissing Weight Watchers, the Cambridge Diet definitely makes you thin…And the 5 – 2 everyone says it makes sense, it was designed by a nutritionalist….Right?     Here Comes the Science Bit Now, don’t get me wrong, in the majority of cases, the principles behind many of these diets are completely sound and with the 5-2 diet in particular, the science definitely adds up.  However, unless you are a keen reader of the Diet Doctor guru, Ian Marber you will probably be unfamiliar with why the equation of (less calories + more exercise eventually = fatter bum) and the reason for this is,...

Looking for Inspiration?

Wow!  When I saw this video, I just had to share it with you.  Up until now Limitless You Worldwide has primarily about women harnessing their power and potential during pregnancy and birth.   However, when the idea of Limitless You was conceived, it was with the aim of empowering everyone who has the desire, to step into their own limitless potential, young, old, male, female - no limits.
