Eat less, exercise more


If you are a health professional and you are still parroting this as a viable plan for weight loss, you need to stop.

Eat less move more is an out dated concept that the public already knows is flawed and only reflects poorly on the health care professionals who still mistakenly promote it.

Eat less and exercise more as a solution to weight loss or health improvement is a pre-critical mass and a pre-evidence based story and concept.

This story has been told and repeated for over 50 years and was founded on assumptions rather than science or research. As time progressed this story was never reassessed and updated in the light of the new information and never questioned when outcomes continued to show failure and a worsening of the situation.

Now, enough people have tried this embarrassing model in the form of every major diet program offered over the decades preaching eat less (daily calorie restriction) and move more (more recreational physical activity). The public is now living in the post-critical mass awareness of this subject.

As this fairy tale continued to be promoted, the government added their twist wrongly attacking fat and villainizing saturated fat and cholesterol making these diets not only low calorie but low fat.

This conventional weight loss model is responsible for the cursed phenomenon of Yo-Yo dieting and all the misery, disappointment, and eventual worsening of weight issues that followed.

Americans know this model doesn't work. They have tried it, over and over again. They listened to their doctors, government and nutrition experts who developed new marketing and packaging of these old concepts using new shake mixes, supplements, pills, powders and potions attached to the same old party line of, "eat less, and move more."

The collective consciousness knows this model doesn't work and each time a person in authority, a health professional or trusted doctor recites the same old excuse of a solution that they know doesn't work it builds resentment and frustration.

In the process the professional undercuts their value and trust and makes themselves look bad and as out dated as their advice.

If anyone tries and tell you, "it's simple, you just need to eat less and exercise more," and you feel put off, ignored, or even lied just may be right on all three. Don't accept it.

Doctors and health professionals, don't perpetuate this mistake.

Keep following, we can do better, there is a better explanation and a more effective approach.

It is time for the Modern Lifestyle Medicine paradigm to stand tall and leave that old dangerous model in the shadows.
