We all know that nutrition and fitness are two of the biggest factors to feeling your best. But after years of failed New Year’s resolution and trying the hottest diets, we’re still trying to figure out how to make that change stick. This year, stop dieting and start with one small change.
Drop the Diet
It may come as no surprise — fad diets don’t work. Cutting out one macronutrient or another, or limiting yourself to only eating this or that food is a short-term solution that will have you losing hair faster than you lose weight. In fact, the sad irony is that diets are a top predictor of future weight gain. At Vega, we’re anti-diet. So anytime you hear the word “diet” from us, know we’re talking about the verb form — “a way of eating.”
Face Your Kryptonite
You know about nutrition and really have the best intentions, but real life gets in the way sometimes. Before you choose what change to make, look at what hurdles — your own dietary kryptonite — keep popping up. You don’t want to be hangry around your loved ones, or those appetizers at the party this weekend were a little too appetizing. Maybe mornings are when you’re too rushed, or you can’t figure out why 3PM munchies always return to haunt you. To make it simple, we divided common challenges into four eating profiles — Breakfast Skipper, Serial Snacker, Weekend Splurger or Number Cruncher.
