How the "Diet Mentality" is Sabotaging Your Goals?

Whenever you start a new weight loss program, it's normal to want to follow the rules exactly as the diet says. You trust that if you do so, you'll be successful in melting off unwanted pounds. You’re convinced that this approach is the right one—until you hit the familiar speed bumps, you throw the towel after one simple mistake and you end up feeling shame and guilt for not being able to keep up with the diet. Your self-confidence crumbles after you regain all the weight back.

If this sounds familiar, you probably have entered the diet mentality. A way of thinking keeps you in the same cycles of restricting and overeating, feeling deprived and then eating out of control, and yo-yoing between weight loss and weight gain.
