Will You Make This Mistake This Christmas?

posted on: December 21, 2016. posted in: Weight loss, Nutrition

Picture the scene. It's January. A new year and a new start. But instead of all the usual resolutions to better yourself, you decide to GIVE UP SEX.

And not just sex.

All sexual activity, including that performed on yourself.

No sex. No self-hornification. Nothing. For the whole of 2017.

The good news is that there are 10 days left of 2016, which means you've got 10 whole days before you have to strap on your chastity belt and begin your withdrawal.

So how do you think you'd spend those 10 days?

Cool? Calm? Relaxed?



I'm sure we'd all agree that most people would double, triple, maybe even quadruple their sexual activity, cramming in as much action as possible before the drought begins.

If it was me... 

I'd probably set myself the challenge of blowing my beans 10 times a day, instead of my usual 5 or 6. And by 01 January I probably wouldn't need a chastity belt because my willy would have fallen off anyway.


My point is this...

The moment you make the decision to give up or BAN YOURSELF from something, there is a period in between now and the dreaded start date when you will BINGE on it.

This is pretty standard human psychology.

Think about this Christmas.

Millions of dieters will have made promises like...

"I'm giving up chocolate on 01 January!"


"I'm banning all sugar in my diet 2017!"

And they will then be spending between now and New Year's Day ramming it in by the bucketload. And worse than that, they will be gaining MORE WEIGHT and MORE FAT in doing so, than if they hadn't banned the food in the first place.

Then when 01 January comes and they start their resolution, it's only a matter of days before they break it... binge again... and gain more weight again.

The take home message?

BANNING and BINGING are peas in a big flabby pod.

If you're going to promise yourself anything, promise yourself this...

You're not giving up any foods in 2017.

You're not banning any food groups in 2017.

You're not setting any unrealistic or unsustainable goals, and therefore setting yourself up for failure.

Instead, you're going to allow yourself all foods, and all food groups in 2017, but plan them into your nutrition intelligently. Like planning to have chocolate one or two times a week, rather than "I'm never, ever, ever eating chocolate again!" then scoffing 5 bars a day when you can't sustain it.

The secret to getting leaner isn't rigid dieting, it's flexible nutrition.

You'll binge less. You'll eat less. You'll weigh less. And you'll cry less. So make 2017 the year you learned how to bend the rules...

Instead of constantly breaking them.


p.s. If you're a serial dieter trapped in the cycle of banning and binging on foods, then why not try our 'binge buster' nutrition plan this 2017?!
