A new year often means a new diet.
Diets are always challenging but they can be particularly problematic for highly sensitive people.
Because overstimulation, stress and difficulties with other people can overwhelm our best intentions.
Can We Make Dieting Easier For Highly Sensitive People?
There are many approaches to dieting but two stand out:
- reduced calorie diets. These diets generally take your existing diet down a notch. Depending on your current eating plan, it may be less of what you are currently eating. It may involve a change of foods. There are many dieting services like Weight Watchers and Nutrisystem among others that find ways to reduce calories without changing your food lifestyle.
- meal replacement diets. Meal replacement diets came into vogue as technology entered the food business. Once company that pioneered their use is Medifast. Meal replacements can have a high amount of nutrition for a modest amount of calories. They are dense nutrition meant to replace 1-2 meals a day.
Either of these approaches can help you lose weight but there is more to it.
What Is Weight Loss Discomfort?
One of the reasons that people have difficulty with diets, is that their bodies feel the withdrawal of food. It can be frightening.
Because of calorie restriction, no matter what your method, you body will most likely digest what you do eat fairly quickly – certainly faster than when you were eating more. So you will feel ups and down from sugar imbalances.
Whatever our current diet, we have found a way to create sugar stability in our bodies, even if it means we weigh more than we would like. When we start a diet, we disturb that equilibrium and that causes discomfort. Your equilibrium changes can also change your moods, make you feel weaker and make it harder to handle stress. All of these factors can make a successful weight loss diet seem like an impossible achievement.
