Exploring the sense and nonsense of food and health

The Diet Mentality

Leave a comment


Lately there has been a renewed interest in how repeated dieting leads to weight gain. Most people who lose large amounts of weight eventually regain all they have lost and more. Repeated cycles of weight loss and regain, referred to as weight cycling decrease the likelihood that future attempts at weight loss will be successful.  There are other approaches to  weight management called intuitive eating or mindful eating  that may offer an alternative to this dilemma.  An older approach is the recognition of the Health At Every Size (HAES) philosophy.
