Do you tell your clients to just do what they are doing and make no changes?
And like I just told ATL, this is entirely consistent with what I'm saying. To summarize:
weight-loss maintenance stats are ABYSMAL. So, rather than jumping to the conclusion that everybody just sucks, or the naive assumption that they just didn't choose the right diet, rather than inviting people to lose weight, maybe fitness trainers should concentrate on fitness and inviting people to eat when hungry and stop when satisfied.
Anticipated result: happier, healthier clients who won't be even heavier five years from now because of the diets we put them on.
Look, I'm trying to save our clients from the therapists, which is where they're going more and more. For all the harm the fitness and diet industry has done, the therapeutic model has probably been even more ruinous.
Let's be the people who invite people of all shapes and sizes to love the bodies they have, enjoy the food they eat and also help them to recapture lost vigor.
