I have been asked some questions about the Drop the Diet course that starts end of January 2022. If you have anymore questions, please let me know as I’d love to hear from you.
Isn’t this just a diet really?
No, not at all. You will be able to eat anything, no restrictions or counting calories. Yes, I know that sounds counterproductive, but remember we have 6 weeks. It’s about challenging and re-programming the way you think about food, eating and dieting.
Won’t that mean it won’t work then?
Because what you have been doing (dieting) hasn’t worked we will be doing something very different. You may know the quote ‘ the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’ Diets don’t work. This does.
Will you tell me what I should eat?
No, you can eat what you like.
Will I lose weight on this diet?
Probably, but I can’t guarantee that. If you take on board what we explore then it is highly likely, but actually losing weight will probably be the least interesting thing you learn on this course. It is designed to change your mindset regards eating and dieting.
What is a mindset?
Your mindset is a set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation. If we change our mindsets we think about things in different ways and hence get different results. Hopefully you can guess what that could mean.
Why does it cost more than a weigh-in session at a slimming club?
This is not a slimming club! I won’t be encouraging you to weight yourself, because that is diet behaviour! We won’t discuss how much weight you lost in a week. We have more important, long-term strategies to work on. You’ll be learning so much more.
What do I get for my money?
This is excellent value for money. If you consider that 1:1 coaching costs at least £50 an hour, often more. Yes, we are in a group but lots of people actually enjoy the group aspect as there is lots of support, and you are not on the journey alone. We are together for 1 ½ hours a week, so £15 (£90 in total) is excellent value.
You will get lots of easy tools and strategies to use for life. There’ll be recipes, and an example meal plan to try out and lots of ideas of what to eat that nourishes your body.
I can’t afford it
When people say this, sometimes that is not the real reason they are hesitating, it’s not the price it’s the fear of failure and it not working. This could be because they’ve tried so many diets before that didn’t work. They are fed up chasing the answer and so give-up, which is a form of self-sabotage. This is a very different.
How does it work if it’s not a diet?
We’ll explore why diets don’t work, what we’re doing wrong and what does work. It’s a bit like exploring the secrets of people who don’t diet and can eat anything they like and don’t become overweight. These ‘secrets’ include lots of tools you can use for life taken from many disciplines. They are very practical and easy.
Will this really work for me?
Well diets don’t work. There is no reason it shouldn’t work for anyone. It’s completely safe (unlike some diets) and won’t harm you.
