Why the "Ideal Weight Calculators" online are B.S.

You try your jeans on. They don’t fit.

Did you ask Dr. Google what are weight loss foods or try to find a weight loss diet to drop those pounds? What was suggested for easy weight loss? No carbs, no gluten, paleo, keto? Or did the weight loss plans suggest the exact opposite? Plant-based. No animal product, no meat, no dairy.

Confused yet?

That’s because the biggest diet trends are at the exact polar opposites of each other. Makes sense right? Ummm, no. Restriction is the name of the game for any modern-day weight loss meal plan. But what if I told you it was all a sham. If I shared that the modern-day diet industry is a $72 billion dollar economy that makes hard dollars off your dissatisfaction. That they are banking on your failure.

Those weight loss calculators on your phone? They don’t know you or your metabolism, your genetics, your medications, your stress levels. A calorie is not a calorie. Studies have shown that two people can eat the same foods, have the same amount of activity and have greatly different body shapes and sizes. There are so many factors at play: genetics, body composition, history of dieting, socioeconomic status and so much more. What about the ideal weight calculator you found online? Did it ask you your ethnicity, bone density, or muscle mass measurements? If not then that number can just be thrown in the garbage.

How would you feel if I told you that the research just does not support long-term weight loss from dieting? That NO diets have ever shown long-term weight loss, except for the tiniest fraction of society (like under 5%). You don’t fail at the diets. The truth is that diets fail you. Weight regain is expected in 95% of people and ⅔ of those people GAIN MORE WEIGHT THAN THEY LOST. Process that. It is a hard pill to swallow. If this was a medication, do you think that Health Canada would approve a treatment that failed 95% of the time? No. Absolutely not.

What if I offered you another option? Instead of weight-loss support, I offer you a long-term strategy to optimize your health, listen to your body, drop the guilt and shame around food, and feel good about eating. No restriction. No “cheat day” or binges. I’m here to tell you it is possible. The flip side of dieting is called “Intuitive Eating” and once the curtain is pulled back on diet culture and you understand the research you just can’t unsee it.

Oz is exposed.
