Diet & Weight Loss Help Guide
In our eat-and-run, massive-portion-sized culture, maintaining a healthy weight can be tough—and losing weight, even tougher. Adding to the difficulty is the abundance of fad diets and "quick-fix” plans that tempt and confuse us, and ultimately fail. If you’ve tried and failed to lose weight before, you may believe that it’s just too difficult or that diets don’t work for you. And in one sense, you may be right: traditional diets don’t work—at least not in the long term.
But there are plenty of small but powerful, changes you can make that do add up to lasting weight loss success. The key is to create a plan that provides plenty of enjoyable choices, avoid common dieting pitfalls, and learn how to develop a healthier, more satisfying relationship with food.
If stress and overeating are sabotaging your weight loss efforts, repair what may be the source of the problem: an inability to manage your emotions.
Take advantage of Helpguide's free Bring Your Life Into Balance program. This resource can help you learn to manage deeper, older and more complex sources of stress which may lead to emotional eating.
