Diet trends change just as fast as fashion, and can be even harder to keep up with. Protein is in; carbs are so last decade. Superfoods are having a “moment”. And coconut water seems to be the must-have accessory for the season.
Mainstream dieting is a bit like being a fashion victim. You buy whatever the designers tell you is hot, shelling out money for whatever current trend is gracing store windows. If that woman on the street is wearing it, you have to have it too (even if it actually makes you look ridiculous)!
Then one day you invest in a classic staple – perhaps a well-fitted blazer or a little black dress – that will never go out of style. It fits, it’s fabulous, and it will last forever.
Crash dieting is no different. We’re constantly being told which foods are “in” or “out”, but where has all this knowledge gotten us?
It’s time to ditch the diet trends and get back to the classics. The focus on content – obsessing over calories, cutting food groups out of the diet, hoping a “superfood” will save your waistline – has only resulted in America weighing more than ever. 80Bites is helping people bring their attention back to QUANTITY.
The simple truth is that when it comes to shedding pounds, quantity matters above all else. America’s overeating and snacking habits have left us in a state of perma-hunger. And even those with iron willpower are bound to have moments of weakness. And what a relief to learn that we can relax and stop obsessing about what we’re “allowed” to put in our mouths.
So let 80Bites be the little black dress in your dieting closet! It may not be flashy like that pair of neon leopard leggings, but we promise we’ll never go out of style. And 10 years from now, you’ll be glad you kept us around (can’t say the same about that juice cleanse… er… we mean… those leopard leggings)!
