Just dropping in to remind you that you don’t lack willpower for eating an extra pancake, drinking a latte, eating the kids’ leftovers, or having a cookie (or 12).
Do not give unsolicited diet advice.
So think about it for a second. If restricting food and exercising led to sustained weight loss over time, every single one of us would be in smaller bodies. We’d all look more or less the same.
But professionals who say they’re treating eating disorders should 100% not be prescribing behaviors for larger bodied people that are diagnosed as eating disorders in smaller bodied people. That is to say prescribing starvation diets and obsessive behaviors to people just to get them to lose a few pounds that are likely to come back anyway Is not ethical or evidence based care.
“I don’t care about your diet”. I’ve made posts like this before, but I always want to add an asterisk. I don’t care about society’s newest diet for weight loss or to live longer. I don’t care about the fads and the gimmicks.
However, even as a non-diet dietitian who doesn’t care about these diets, I most certainly care about my clients’ diets. Your diet helps make up who you are.
