Hi, Jane Durst Pulkys here, Toronto's leading holistic nutritionist and health expert. In this video I talk about diets and why they don't work. My interpretation of the word D.I.E.T. is "Doomed Investment Every Time". People consistently fail at dieting and losing weight long term because they don't make healthy eating and living a central part of their lifestyle.
What I recommend people do is to follow the 80/20 rule. The 80/20 rule means that what matters most is what you do 80% of the time. So what you do is eat amazing, health rich foods 80% of the time and then give yourself a 20% window to eat some of the treats you enjoy. This makes it so that you don't completely deprive yourself and maintain balance while leading a healthier lifestyle.
