DOCBEECEE TOOLKIT is not another diet but is a lifestyle. I advice you to give up dieting and stop worrying about losing weight and learn to eat mindfully.
A diet according to the book” I can make you thin” by Paul McKenna ,” is any system of eating that attempts to exert external control over what , where, when or how much you eat.
Many of us want to lose weight and try several diets . Sadly we regain the weight and blame ourselves. We try again and again but the weight we lose always come back. How much we weigh depends on how much we eat and how much energy we burn. Hunger and energy use is controlled by the brain without our awareness.
If we lose a lot of weight our brain reacts as if we were starving. Dr Rudy Leibel of Columbia University has found that people who have lost 10 percent of their body weight burn 250 to 400 calories less because their metabolism is suppressed by the brain. This means that a successful dieter must eat less food forever than someone of the same weight who has always been thin. They may try to offset it by burning more which means that they must exercise daily and burn that energy. In view of that my advice is do not starve yourself? Your body will react .
My message is that prevention is better that cure. It is much easier to prevent weight gain than to lose weight. A temporary gain in weight can become permanent as our brain decides that, that’s our new normal . Any attempts to offset the new normal will be resisted by the body.
Several long-term studies have shown that girls who diet in their early teenage years are three times more likely to become overweight five years later, even if they started at a normal weight.
Do I need to lose weight to be healthy ? 
Do not worry or get obsessed about the need to lose weight. You can take control of your health by taking control of your lifestyle, even if you cannot lose weight and keep it off. Studies have shown that obese people with no healthy habits are at high risk of death about 7 times as compared to those that are healthy. Interestingly those that are obese and have all four healthy habits have more or less similar risk of death as compared to those who are not obese.
Why am I against dieting ? Studies have shown that 5 years after a diet . Most people have regained their weight and sadly 40% have gained more weight. So in short dieting is likely to make us gain weight in the long run than lose it.
if diets worked , we would all be thin by now me included. Why do we keep doing the same thing and expecting different results ?
What should we do ?
You need to learn mindful eating and appreciate signals from your body such hunger . You must eat when you are hungry and work with your appetite instead of fearing it.
Do not left food control you . Eat when you are hungry and stop worrying or thinking about food.
