What an awesome month it has been on the Grace & Grit podcast! We did a deep dive into the science behind why diets don’t work, how to bust out of diet prison and so much more.
In this episode of the podcast, I summarize the ground we have covered over the past 3 weeks during the “Death of Dieting” theme and dish out some tried and true strategies you can implement to greatly improve your health in a sane and, most importantly, sustainable fashion.Listen Now!
This month’s deep dive on the podcast is into the wild and seriously misinformed world of dieting. I appropriately titled the theme of this month’s podcast: The Death of Dieting.
Dieting sucks and more importantly it doesn’t work for the long haul and to better help us understand why that is the case, I have invited Traci Mann to be a guest on the show. Traci is a professor of psychology, founder of the Health and Eating Lab at the University of Minnesota and author of Secrets from the Eating Lab: The Science of Weight Loss, the Myth of Willpower and Why You Should Never Diet Again.
We cover a tremendous amount of ground in today’s interview including:
• Why diets don’t work.
• Why you should focus on living on the low end of your set weight range
• The Myth of willpower
• Strategies for what will improve your relationship with food
• Why “obesity will not kill you”
• The incredible health benefits of exercise and why weight loss should not be the primary goal of exercise
