A message from “M”?

M&K Crown Why most diets are broken and fail


This is “M” here with a message for you.
(That’s the “M” from M&K Crown)

I know a person who is “on a diet” now and
I don’t think it is going that well for them.

One reason being a “lack of focus”.

And some other things that relate to that


Let’s step back and look at the “The Big Picture”
why MOST diets fail.

Here we go…

Many diets are based on strict rules and restrictions that are
difficult to maintain over time. They may eliminate entire food
groups or severely limit calorie intake, leading to feelings of
deprivation and making it challenging to stick with the diet in
the long run.

2. Unrealistic expectations:
Diets often promise quick and dramatic results, which can
create unrealistic expectations. People may expect to lose
a significant amount of weight in a short period, but
sustainable weight loss usually occurs at a slower pace.
When the expected results don’t materialize, people may
become discouraged and abandon the diet.

3. Lack of individualization:
Diets are often designed as one-size-fits-all approaches. However,
each person’s body is unique, and what works for one individual
may not work for another. Factors such as metabolism, genetics,
lifestyle, and personal preferences play a significant role in
determining the effectiveness of a diet.

Make it for you and your needs.

4. Focus on short-term changes:
Many diets concentrate on temporary changes rather than long-term
lifestyle modifications. They may help individuals lose weight initially,
but once they return to their previous eating habits, the weight often
comes back. Sustainable weight management requires adopting
healthy habits that can be maintained over time.

5. Emotional and psychological factors:
Eating habits are influenced by emotional and psychological factors,
such as stress, boredom, and emotional eating. Diets that solely
focus on food choices may not address these underlying factors,
making it challenging to sustain long-term success.

6. Lack of education and support:
Successful weight management often requires a combination of
nutrition knowledge, behavior change, and support. Many diets
provide a set of rules to follow without offering comprehensive
education or support systems, leaving individuals ill-equipped to
navigate challenges and setbacks.


An Important Note:
that while some diets may not work for most people, individual
experiences can vary. Consulting with a healthcare professional
or a registered dietitian can be beneficial in developing a
personalized approach that aligns with your specific needs and

So if you diet, make sure you do it right,
and avoid these pitfalls.
