diet [plans] do work
Here’s what Webster’s has to say about the definition of dietWhen you read what Webster’s has to say a “diet” doesn’t really sound that ominous.
As a noun;
Origin: 13th Century, Middle English diete, manner of living, to lead one's life
1 a : food and drink regularly provided or consumed b : habitual nourishment c : the kind and amount of food prescribed for a person or animal for a special reason
2 : something provided especially habitually
And as a verb; 1 : to cause to take food
The truth is “Diets Do Work” and for many people they work quite well. If we apply Webster’s definition, even your "never gains-a-pound friend" is always on a diet. Each day he or she "habitually consume food or drink", the same way you do, but chances are they’re consuming portions and foods that serve them vs.. Portions and foods that don’t.
The most important question to ask yourself isn’t if a diet will work for you. The first question you need to ask yourself is "Are my thoughts + actions about the food I’m eating every day producing the outcome I desire?" If your answer is no, and you really want to produce a better outcome you need to take some time to think through what you’re truly committed to doing that will produce a desired outcome.
Maybe it’s easier to think about a diet more as a plan and of something that you are going to do everyday, remembering the saying that "if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail".
