Dieting Doesn't Work, Do This Instead

“Diet culture” sadly still reigns supreme. Diet culture has been around for several decades but took off in the 80’s; forty years later, many continue to seek an easy or fast solution to lose weight and expect to keep it off.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

Every few years, a new mystic diet trend is being hawked: meal-in-a-box promises, magic pills, injections into arms or whatever profit-making machine someone can come up with to sell a trend to those who seek weight loss success. Even shakes still seem to be the touted method by some! Check out a few classic diet and weight loss methods commercials ads from the past (sadly some are still being hawked today):

I ask you to ditch diet culture and invest in YOU: seek out sensible methods with proven longevity and sustainability. Keep in mind, in most circumstances, it took decades of bad habits and eating patterns to put on the weight and it will take time, patience, nurturing and willful intention to change those habits, along with the eating behaviours that coincide with them. There likely will be setbacks along the way. Be emotionally and spiritually invested in yourself, prioritize your well-being and make this a project of personal wellness inside and out. Your future self will thank you.




He lost 130 pounds in 2010-11 and has kept it off ever since.

Tony's Shift happened early 2010 inside the change room of a Big & Tall Clothing store. He lost 130 pounds in 16 months and has successfully maintained his weight since.
​He detested the reflection he saw in the mirror to the point that he removed all full-length mirrors from his home. He cringed when he was referred to as a “big guy.” His obesity caused him to be treated as a second-class citizen.
Reality began to set in. Gaining “just a few pounds” every year, until he started to fear for his future.
He was 37 with a host of medical issues: Type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, gout, joint pain, constant indigestion, and acid reflux. Simple tasks like putting on socks, climbing a flight of stairs, fitting into an airplane seat or booth at a restaurant, and getting out of bed became big challenges for him. Every afternoon he would have a sugar crash, leaving him with little energy to get through the rest of the day. He was always sweaty and tired. He began avoiding the outdoors and eventually just avoiding life.
