This baby is so pissed about bad diets.

Diet? Don’t Try It

Because of various nutritional trends in recent decades, people have started to see ‘diet’ as a word that describes not your general eating habits, but a temporary eating strategy designed to improve your appearance, and sometimes, at least hypothetically, your health.
A few minutes thought about this concept shows that it makes no sense.
Every aspect of your physical lifestyle is reflected in your body’s appearance and health. Football players look like football players. Tennis players look like tennis players. Guys who sit on the couch all day look like guys who sit on the couch all day.
Of course, everyone doesn’t just do one thing; it is the sum of each person’s daily physical activities and food intake which determine his physical health and appearance. Simply put, the way you look and feel are always an accurate reflection of your lifestyle.
Think about it, and be honest with yourself. If you imagine someone you know well, and think of the way that person eats and what that person does over the course of the day, you’ll realize that he looks about the way you’d expect him to look. Your body is like a mirror of your daily life in that it reflects your lifestyle—and like a mirror, it doesn’t lie.
Some of you are probably shaking your heads right now. “No, I’ve followed all the rules for months at a time, and I didn’t lose any weight or feel any better.”
If that’s the case, you might want to reconsider whose rules you’re following. If you followed the popular ideas about calories, soy, carbs, oils, animals fats, dairy, and meat—to name a few—it’s no surprise you didn’t get anywhere.
And it’s because we don’t get anywhere with the ‘popular knowledge’ that we get so frustrated and want to find some miracle month-long transformation. But that’ll never happen, and it’s all so much easier if you just do it the right way in the first place.
So you can keep beating your head against a wall if you want to. Try all you want to trick your body with a short-term diet plan to lose weight or add muscle or do whatever. The fact is that unless you’ve got good information and you’re in it for the long haul, you’re not going to make any progress.
Stop kidding yourself. A temporary ‘diet’ won’t work—don’t try it. The only thing that will work is a permanent, healthy change in the way you eat, understand, and think about food.
