Dietspotlight’s View on Dieting

What is your view on dieting and weight loss?

The term ‘dieting’ doesn’t mean what it did just a decade ago. Men and women who successfully lose weight, and keep it off, do so by making non-invasive or super restrictive changes to the foods they eat and lifestyle habits. Weight loss isn’t a one-act play. We believe it’s essential to provide access to resources that educate people on how to live a healthier life, which may lead to weight loss and a greater possibility of long-term weight management.

What do you think about the “calories-in, calories-out” model of dieting?

Avoid this model of dieting at all costs. Success lends itself to supporting total body health, not counting how many calories you eat and how many calories you burn.

What do you believe are dieting “best practices”?

At Dietspotlight, we believe “best practices” are:

  • Eating smaller, more-frequent meals.
  • Setting small, achievable goals.
  • Weighing yourself more than once a week.
  • Exercising portion control.
  • Not skipping breakfast.
  • Eating mindfully.

These suggestions are based on research results published by entities like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (pdf), the International Journal of Obesity, and Frontiers in Public Health.

What is your view on the relationship between exercising and losing weight?

Without a doubt, exercise increases the number of calories the body burns during, and sometimes for hours after, activity. Thus, if you maintain a healthy diet and practice portion control exercise can improve weight loss.

What is your view on the relationship between dieting success and willpower?

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines willpower best. Willpower is “energetic determination.” Whether it’s dieting or climbing Mount Everest, to be successful, you need more than willpower. You need the right tools to make the right changes to achieve your best health and weight. All the energetic determination in the world won’t provide that.

Who are the experts who medically review your content?
