Well, we all know, don’t we, that there are some people who can eat whatever they like, and yet don’t increase their girth by a millimetre, or their weight by a gram. And there are others, like me, who only needs to nibble at the odd cashew nut, or eat half a Kit-Kat finger with our morning tea, and our waistbands feel like some instrument of medieval torture for the rest of the day and, at the end of it I, at least, find myself undressing in the dark to avoid having nightmares about the Invasion of the Flabby Monsters. I know that the truth is that we’re all different – and generally I think that’s great – but not when I’m trying to downsize my body, as I am now. Then it’s not at all great. It’s just unfair.
The thing is that we all treat differently. Because how we treat food is caused by our own personal histories. From what were taught as children, to… Well my addictive food is ice cream – so for me it’s the last time I sat down and eat a whole tub of ice cream. Feel free to insert your on personal habits here!
So it’s like this. When it comes to size and weight, everyone’s body works differently – so our metabolism are wildly diverse – and everyone’s mind works differently. Let’s just think about that for a moment. We are completely individual, but we think the solution to being the right size and weight is the same for everyone.
So, for years, a massive industry has bloomed advocating that the ‘right’ answer is something new. It’s just that the new ‘right’ answer only works for some people. Actually very few. Because although the new answer helps quite a lot of people drop size and weight, it all goes back on again. And more.
So the answer to whether a programme that supported you in keeping your size and eight down for good would be the same programme for everyone, or individually designed for each individual is… It has to be individually designed for you. For sure.
