6 Mistakes Women Make When Dieting



Here’s what you can expect from this episode:

If you feel like you're always dieting, but nothing seems to work, or you feel like you can't ever seem to keep the weight off without it coming back with a vengeance. Or maybe you're entering your first cut and you want to set yourself up for your best success, then this episode is for you!

We've been flooded with messages around dieting, and what a proper diet looks like and then get whiplash when a new diet comes to town. The term diet has become bigger then Ben Hur. There are so many out there that we’ve lost sight of what a diet really is at its core. This is where the common mistakes come in. I see them all the time. And we are about to myth bust them in this episode.

I’ll share the six common mistakes I see with my clients and my audience so that we can get to the crux of what is ACTUALLY causing your metabolism to slow down, how to reverse diet effectively and what is a realistic expectation when it comes to the amount of fat you should be losing weekly. You’ll walk away with a bunch of clarity and recommendations to set yourself on the right path.


Topics covered on mistakes women make when dieting:

  • Why restriction won’t help you lose fat
  • The reason why you should be spending more time outside of dieting 
  • The mindset that is the downfall for consistency
