Ep. 232 - The Psychology of Plateaus: Why the Scale Fails Us & How to Measure True Progress | Non-Scale Victories, Fasting Consistently & Reframing Expectations for Sustainable Weight Loss

Uncategorized Jun 03, 2024

In today’s episode of the "Fasting for Life" podcast, we discuss the mental challenges related to using the scale as a progress metric during weight loss journeys. Emphasizing consistent behavioral habits and non-scale victories, we argue that weight loss should be approached through a holistic lens focusing on overall health rather than just appearance. We suggest using tools like our fasting journal to track various progress markers like measurements, fitness progress, and self-compassion practices. The goal is to shift from a results-based to a process-based mindset to ensure long-term sustainability and health improvements.
