234: How to Avoid Dieting Failure (Or Personal Failure)

Sep 22, 2016

I think we’re all sick & tired of dieting failure, dieting obsession and feeling like we’ve failed.

It’s exhausting!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve tried every diet under the sun.

For years I felt frustrated, confused and like something was wrong with me.

Nothing was wrong with me. Something was significantly flawed in my approach.

Traditional weight loss programs are designed to fail.

I don’t think it’s you. I think it’s your approach.

In today’s episode I want to help you understand why dieting failure is so common – why diets are exactly designed to fail in the long term and what you can do differently to ensure success.

How To Avoid Dieting Failure

Diets don’t work.

One of the primary reasons they don’t work is because they are based on a leader/follower model.

In the leader/follower model, the “leader”, whether a person or a company, creates the rules and the structure and you, the follower, step in line and follow their commands.

There are many major problems with the leader follower model and I summarize them into the following categories, which I describe in today’s episode:

  • Distraction
  • Doubt
  • Dependance
  • Drifting
  • Depersonalization
  • Deflection

Instead, if we want long term success we should seek the leader/leader model.

The leader/leader model operates based on the premise that some people have great guidance and strategy to offer, but no one knows your body, your preferences, your lifestyle and your results better than you do.

In the leader/leader model, you are creating your own plan based on your body’s feedback instead of blindly following someone else’s strategy.

In the leader/leader model, you’re identify & creating tools that work for you, not establishing a list of rules you must follow.
