.Want a Diet that Sticks? Eat Foods that Bring You Joy!

with South Asian Heart Center Staff


Are you tired of trying yet another fad diet? Have you yo-yoed through the trials and tribulations of extreme diets, eating foods foreign to you – only to put weight back on and develop symptoms and side-effects you have had to deal with subsequently?

Fad diets are diets that are trendy in the short term, and often not based on scientific research or evidence. Fad diets often encourage deprivation and the demonization of foods, which may lead to nutrient deficiencies and disordered eating habits. While a fad diet may help you lose weight in the short term, they’re hard to stick to in the long run. They are restrictive in nature, cut out major food groups, and even your favorite dessert.

Would you be interested in making smart, healthy choices without focusing on just weight loss and relying on quick fixes? Would you be interested in making small adjustments with the foods that you love to better portion and proportion their nutrient content? If you are at risk for diabetes (find out now), you may consider joining us for the next group of El Camino Health's Diabetes Prevention Program that aims to help you lose body weight in a sustainable way, lower blood sugars, and prevent/better manage diabetes. This program helps you develop behaviors and lifestyle habits that you can implement and sustain for the long-term.
