(http://www.drrobertmaki.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/DRS_main_logo3-300x300.jpg)In this episode of The Dr. Rob Show we go back to the weight loss topic. One of our listeners wrote in and mentioned how it is hard for him to "let go" of the caloric restriction mindset. We realize that many people may be having this issue. What Dr. Rob "preaches" is to let go of the typical caloric restriction mindset because it is detrimental to your long term weight loss success. As we start down our weight loss journey we typically set specific goals that we want to achieve by a certain time/date. It may be easy to achieve those short term goals, but as time goes on it seems harder and harder to hit those next short term goals we set for ourselves. When we get to that "plateau" point, we begin to get down on ourselves which can prevent us from continuing on.
Dr. Rob explains why we can hit those goals in the beginning but have a harder time down the road. He explains that its not about manipulating the calories in calories out philosophy. The point is to focus on the food choices primarily. Its not about how much you eat, but what you eat that really matters. Its ok to look at calories, but not to focus on how many calories you consume in a day. If you eat less and exercise more, you will have failure in the long term sense. Our bodies gained weight over time. It takes time to lose the weight.
In common society we are made to think we can lose 20 or 30 pounds in one month. This is completely the wrong information. Although it is possible to lose that much weight initially, it is unhealthy and it will kill your long term success. Dr. Rob teaches that weight loss is a lifestyle change not a diet. Diets are not meant to last, they can not last. There is a huge "learning curve" in changing your mindset from caloric restriction to lifestyle change. Once your able to get your mind on this new way of thinking is the first step. After that its all about what you eat not how much you eat.
