The non-diet approach to weight loss can be very beneficial to those that have struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food. This is because it focuses on more than the weight loss aspect of dieting. A well-rounded program focuses on all aspects of dieting. It can help bring true happiness to your life. If you have used food as a source of comfort in the past, you can be free to live a life without an emotional reliance on food.

Physical

The non-diet approach to weight loss does focus on the physical aspect of losing weight. After all, that is one of the main goals. However, it is only a small part of this type of weight loss program. Many diets are designed to help you lose weight quickly. Unfortunately, after these diets there is a strong likelihood of gaining it back. The non-diet weight loss program teaches you to develop a relationship with your body. Allow your body to dictate what you eat and when. Diets that tell you to eat certain foods at certain times are very restricting. Your body will begin to fight back, and you can ultimately gain weight. The non-diet approach is a natural and healthy alternative.

Emotional

Your emotional eating stems from somewhere. That is why it is important to focus on the emotional aspect of your weight gain as well. By learning what caused your weight gain and overcoming it, you can eliminate overeating from your life. A licensed therapist can teach you to begin focusing on yourself. A support group is also helpful. The members of a weight loss support group are often the only ones that know what you have been through. They can be a great source of comfort during the tough times.

Mental

After years of dieting and binge eating, you may have developed myths about yourself and dieting. You must begin to take these myths and deconstruct them. By learning where they came from, you can easily dispel these myths. You can then begin to change those negative myths into positive truths. They should become your new life mantra. When you change your thinking, you can feel motivated to lose weight and live a life of happiness. Do not become bogged down by the negative.

Behavioral

The non-diet approach to weight loss also teaches you to focus on the behaviors you need to reach your goal weight. Look at the triggers and behaviors that occurred while you were binge eating. By knowing what triggers you, you can be better prepared to handle them. When these triggers occur, have a list of alternative behaviors to do in place of overeating. These activities should not focus on food, but rather on things that bring about the same type of happiness. This will reduce binge eating and lead to healthy weight loss.
