As a Certified Health and Lifestyle Coach, people often ask me whether the latest diet product “works”. The Diet and Nutrition industry is a $20 billion dollar business. It is estimated that there are 100 million dieters in the world. Experts introduce new books, eating plans, exercise systems, surgeries, pills, shakes and supplements that promise quick, easy and effortless weight loss, boundless energy and restored health. Many programs even pay celebrities to endorse their product to boost sales.
This time of year is primetime for the diet industry to rush their products into stores, infomercials, internet ads and print. It’s no wonder America is suffering from ‘nutrition confusion’! Which diet plan works for me? Will this pill really make my stomach flat? Will I have more energy by drinking this shake? The truth is there is no single diet that works for everyone. When in doubt, ask yourself these questions:
If the answer to any of these questions is no, then your product isn’t worth the time, effort or energy you are investing in it. The answer to your discontentment may be to experiment with different eating plans that nourish your mind, body and soul. Stop looking externally for diet solutions and quick fixes with pills, shakes, supplements – and look within for answers. Seek trusted information, encouragement and support for long-term success. And begin to appreciate yourself from the inside out. Afterall, February is the month of LOVE…so why not start with YOU? Download your free eGuide today at www.sarawolfsen.com.
