Basically, when you attempt the another diet for the zillionth time, apart from being hungry and miserable throughout the whole process, its not doing your health much good either. Without going into too much science, when 'dieting' the body starts 'conserving fat' and the metabolism slows down. Net result is total confusion and when you start start eating normally again, you absorb up every calorie like a swelling sponge.
Then you feel like a total failure, so you end up eating eating your entire body weight in chocolate anyway, which sends insulin levels rocketing and the whole system is sent into more confusion. By this stage not only is your body that's screwed up, but your head is completed mashed too!! Anyone who has spent years of yo-yo dieting will identify with all of this!! Then food becomes the enemy and its at the forefront of your mind everyday.
As someone who has battled with my weight all my life, I finally got some reprieve 3 years ago when I started using Saxenda injections. For the first time in 30 years, my very rocky relationship with food was over and we are now firm friends. I was finally given 'a get out of jail' card and since my parole I've never looked back since and so enjoying my new found freedom.
I can now eat everything I want without guilt or without bloating up like a blow fish! I feel that my body works, dare I say it, 'like a thin person'. My metabolism no longer operates like a slug in reverse. My health and well being is so much improved, its honestly changed my life on so many levels.
