Does this sound familiar? 


How many times have we started a replacement diet with the absolute best of intentions? we all know we picked an honest program, we're excited, we've stocked abreast of the essentials. we'd even manage to try to to well for a couple of days. 


Then the shoe falls. Our resolve wanders. We almost search for an excuse to cheat. You ask yourself, “Why?” 


You know full well that 14 strong days as freed from temptation as possible will garner you the simplest chance of weight loss success. 


Good plan! So, what does one instead? you create a date to satisfy your pals at the local hangout – you recognize , the one with the free hour buffet and 25¢ beers. You rationalize you “deserve” it. You convince yourself that your friends will bolster you with “support”. Lastly, you promise yourself to stay to 1, okay 2 max, Michelob Lights. 


Yeah that was the promise, but it didn't quite end up that way. Yet again. 


It's not like we'd like to someone to carry our hand into temptation! It surely doesn't help that there is a McDonalds, Burger King and/or Pizza Hut on every corner. Calling at us like an epic siren, we become the drive thru like Pavlov's dogs. Our low carb brain tells us to order a bunless cheeseburger or grilled salad , meanwhile we splurt out “Big Mac & Diet Coke”. in fact Diet Coke! Hey, we're on a diet! 


Why can we do it? Why can we set ourselves up? Seemingly, almost on purpose? 


Personally, i feel it's like the emotional reasons we eat, whether we're actually hungry or not. subsequent time you're standing ahead of the fridge, door swung wide open, staring during a blank trance as if some magical 0 cal 0 carb delicious delight will suddenly appear. Take comfort in knowing that your dieting sisters and brothers are joining you world over. 


Self examination is that the key. what is going on on inside your brain? What are we furiously trying to bury under the incorrect foods and poor choices? What on earth are we afraid of? Worried that we will not blame personal failures on our fat anymore? Scared about sudden attention and flirting from the other sex? 


Zillions of books are written on the topic and i am faraway from an expert, but I even have spent the higher portion of my adult life pondering this puzzle. Therapy is perhaps the foremost obvious answer, but we do not have time and i am certainly unqualified! behavior therapy techniques would be beneficial, as are online support groups, like those at the Kimkins.com site. 


For my buck, the foremost bang is journaling. Yes, men, even you. You've heard confession is sweet for the soul. Well, it's absolutely true. As luck would have it, your Kimkins membership comes together with your very own personal journal – yours to share with other members for accountability or simply to jot your private feelings. 


We'll touch more on self-sabotage in upcoming article. except for now, committing feelings and insecurities, whether to paper or bandwidth, can help. 


Go ahead, discover yourself.
