Dieting Pitfalls of Women Interview for Super Human Radio

Hi Everyone!

I just completed an internet radio interview for Super Human Radio on the pitfalls of dieting for both women AND men.

The link is here:

Deadly Dieting Sins for Women

Fast forward to the 57 minute mark to hear my thoughts on dieting, eating for weight loss and the best way to exercise for maximum fat loss. The show is about 55 minutes long - download it to your ipod and listen on the way to work, or listen at night when you're prepping your healthy food for the next day :)

I think you need to consider your audience. How realistic do you think it is to stay off wine, flour, for eternity? My philosophy is that I'm not going to do anything that I can't keep up for life. I'm not going to bring my own lunch to work meetings, it's much easier for me just to restrain from overeating, that works just fine. And you say, who got fat from nuts? Well, who got fat from fruit? Unlikely. I also think your protein recommendations are unrealistic. If I ate 150 g protein/day, I would feel like crap, and have no room for veggies or fruit or STARCH!

It's enough for me to avoid the heavily processed stuff, though I do enjoy a slice of pizza or a sandwich from time to time. I'm a big believer in moderation, maybe because I actually understand what that means. An ice cream cone, if I can find one, on the two days of year that it's actually hot here? Excellent! Every day, or even every week? No.

I would just go back to being fat if I thought I had to do this all or nothing crap. I'm not going to compete in body building, too old to model. I'm previously obese, just happy to be normal weight, not interested in super-slim. Not if it means no wine, bread, sugar, etc. And while I eat full fat organic yogurt and other dairy, and certainly don't shy away from fat, it's still high in calories, and I don't believe for a half of a second that it doesn't contribute to fat gain. Your interviewer is drinking the kool-aid.

Awesome Julie - whatever works for you is best. A lot of people stay off wine and flour for eternity and don't die or don't feel deprived. And as far as fruit, many people struggling to lose weight cut back on fruit and replace it with protein or fat and do great. But again, if that's not your thing, don't do it. That's why there's low-fat advocates and low-carb... different strokes for different folks. Love your positive attitude; thanks for chiming in.

You are too nice, I don't have a good attitude, especially when I can't sleep for days, like now. Anyway, I think there's a disconnect between those "in the business", whether it's bodybuilding, nutrition, modeling, etc., and middle-aged ex-fatties like me. I spend a lot of time exercising, and I enjoy it, but I'm not going for asceticism. I could do better with diet, and I'm still figuring my way through maintenance, but being one of the few people I know who actually eats lots of veggies and no pastries, and exercises more than a 20 minute walk a day, I think I'm ahead of the game.

For the record, I'm not a fan of low-carb nor low-fat. I possibly could use more protein, but I dislike meat (except bacon, of course), and beans, cheese, fish, eggs are already as much a part of my diet as I'm capable of. Anyway, keep spreading the good word.
