How Yo-Yo Dieting Can Do A Number On Your Body

What I love about the PS1000 diet is that it promotes a change in lifestyle, and turns you away from yo-yo dieting. Consitancy and many meals throughout the day is what gives people success on the program, and in the journey after the program is over.

We have all heard the term “yo-yo dieting” before, but what does it really mean in terms of your health? The holidays come and go, and before we know it a few extra pounds have crept onto our waistlines. Many times people will use the new year to try out the latest juicing cleanse, banana diet, or even soup detox until they can get their weight under control. What they are not aware of is the long-term effects these diets have on your body, and they are not always positive.

The Process

When your body gets placed in starvation mode, it simply tries to survive by storing fat for when you are really going to need itYo-Yo Dieting is defined as the process of losing and gaining weight back as fast as a yoyo would go through a string. Your body first will get placed in “diet” mode and it will go into starvation mode. When your body gets placed in this mode, it simply tries to survive by storing fat for when you are really going to need it. These small windows of famine confuse the body into thinking it needs to preserve fat, thus slowing the weight loss process down. When you see super low calorie diets (anything under 900 calories per day) you are in for a glutton of punishment both physically and mentally.

On the flip side, once you have decided that this low calorie life is not what you envisioned for your future, you are more likely to overeat. Food probably never tasted as good as it did when you got off of your diet, and back to regular life. Flavors pop, and your stomach in finally feeling full again. Even more weight may come back on, than before you tried to detox. Finding a happy medium transition into getting on a better eating program is so important to keeping your body healthy overall.

Gut Health

Gut health is essential to weight lossNot many people like to talk about gut health, but it is a fact of life and many people suffer from bacteria imbalances. Those suffering especially are yo-yo dieters, as their once routine filled with pizza and burgers is now turning into a salad. The enzymes and bacteria in your gut try to adjust to this new lifestyle causing a teeter-totter effect to your stomach. Weight gain can occur when you gut is unhappy, and so can Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Mental Health

Dieting is hard work, and it is best approached with a steady focus in mind. It took time to put that weight on, so give your body time to get the weight off. Having a quick fix mentality to your diet regime is a recipe for failure. Start making changes to your diet gradually, and you will see the results in no time. Being consistent with a program like PS1000 will not only help you lose weight, but it will change your life for the better! You will be able to keep the weight off. Say goodbye to yo-yo diets that leave you frustrated and back at square one.
