What diets don’t tell you is this is exactly what they set you up for.Dieting is any food plan or rigid health paradigm that dictates exactly what you eat, when you eat it and how much you eat. There’s a significant difference between practicing gentle nutrition and dieting. Having a gentle concern and awareness about what, when and why you’re eating and mindfully paying attention to cues of hunger and fullness are completely appropriate behaviors for long-term health and wellness.But don’t fall into the trap of dieting in any form — even when it is masqueraded as “healthy lifestyle change.” If anyone is telling you exactly what to do with your eating, leaving no wiggle room for taste, enjoyment, cultural values, celebrations, etc., chances are good it’s a diet and you should run the other way.So, if you’re ever tempted to jump on a diet bandwagon, here’s a list of what top nutrition experts wish you knew about dieting.1. Diets aren’t sustainableClients often come to me claiming they have no willpower or feeling like a failure, but it's the diet that has failed, not them. Our bodies aren't meant to be deprived of food, physically or emotionally, according to dietitian Rachael Hartley.2. Diets take away your powerDiets farm out your eating decisions to someone else, and in so doing, completely disrupt your ability to listen to your own body, turning healthy eating into a bigger struggle than it needs to be. To do well with food and eating takes connecting with your body and listening to its hunger and fullness signals and making your appetite work for you, according to dietitian Adina Pearson.
