Women are particularly susceptible to the pressure to be thin, something which is perpetuated by the media, and so often end up in a constant battle with their weight, stuck in a never-ending cycle of constantly losing and gaining weight. Most women who lose weight vow never to put the weight back on again, and yet they still find the pounds creeping back up on them. It is clearly not a conscious decision to regain the weight they have lost, but often their way of thinking about food has not been sufficiently altered to be able to resist the temptation on offer in the form of foods which they had previously denied themselves. Maybe on some level women even enjoy the process of losing weight as a way of punishing themselves for having fallen off the healthy eating wagon.
It is not difficult to see why dieting can become addictive, as women are able to step on the scales and see a smaller number than the week before; they are able to buy flattering clothes in a smaller size or fit into clothes which they had previously grown too large for, and receive compliments from friends and family about how good they are looking. This also goes some way to explaining why women berate themselves so harshly for putting weight back on. They often feel that they have let their friends and family down, even though weight loss is very much an individual decision, and feel that the whole world was expecting them to fail anyway.
They beat themselves up about it, and often turn to food for comfort, only serving to exacerbate the situation as they continue to pile on the pounds. For people who have never struggled with their weight it can seem rather odd that overweight individuals can lose weight with such ease, but cannot keep it off. As far as they are concerned the hardest part is losing the weight, as that requires consuming fewer calories than need to be expended, which obviously requires some level of determination. However, they perhaps do not realize the relationship that some people have formed with food.
Food can be both a reward and a punishment for some people. They enjoy eating, but find themselves overeating, usually unhealthy food, and then feel guilty, particularly if it results in weight gain. When they decide to lose weight they often do not consider tackling their relationship with food, and focus on following a restrictive diet which they are unable to stick to for a long period of time. They may fixate on certain foods and end up bingeing, and ultimately failing on their diet, which makes them feel even worse about themselves.
The only way to end the cycle is to address the problem head-on, and to break the association between losing weight and feeling good, and gaining weight and feeling bad. There has to be a happy medium which can be reached rather than forever striving to reach an elusive ideal weight or size which is hoped will lead to complete satisfaction.
Lora has been taking Delta Labs thermogenic Postnal and has had incredible results. At the time of this review, she is 5 weeks postpartum and is already back in her pre baby weight jeans. She loves that she is losing the baby weight, and at the same time increasing her milk supply.
Our Postnatal is 100% All Natrual, so it is safe to take while breastfeeding, as well as gluten free and vegan.
