Are You Navigating Maintenance With A Diet Mindset?

Ep. 198 - WordPress

It’s been six weeks since you finished your dieting phase and you’re currently maintaining a weight that’s two pounds away from the lowest number you saw on the scale while you were dieting.

Yet, you’re still obsessing over logging every single bite of food into MyFitnessPal, cutting back on carbohydrates each time you dine out, feeling a strong urge to add extra cardio, and living and dying by the number on the scale…

Wait – are you dieting or maintaining?

It’s far too easy to end a diet and carry with you the diet brain that develops during this period.

In today’s episode, Paul and Micheala have a powerful conversation about the many mistakes so many are making when it comes to detaching from a dieter’s mindset after the diet is over. This conversation is real, as both Paul and Micheala have ample experience making this mistake. 

Sick of feeling stuck in the weight loss-regain cycle hopping from one diet to the next without lasting results and ready to not only lose the weight and keep it off for good but also become the most confident, loving, and sexy version of yourself who puts her own needs and self-care first…?

You’re not alone.
