Same diet, different results

If two people go on the same diet do they always follow it the same? Do they eat the same foods?  In the same portions?

I was once on a diet which was high protein and low in fat.  I started out unsure and took in the food list to the grocery store.  Read the forums and recipes and followed it exactly.

I lost 2 dress sizes.  That was the first diet I had tried that I actually lost weight on.  Problem was I fell off the wagon then tried to restart. But no more weight came off.  

The people who supported the diet would tell me that my diet was fine I needed to up my exercise.  

I worked, and was exercising as much as I could, how could I increase it more and still have a job?

I had changed how I applied the diet, and because of that the results were different for me.

Years later when I was finally changing my life and learning more about nutrition I realised what I had done wrong, but it was too late.  That sounds bad but it was actually good that it was too late for me. I changed my life not just for the time I was on a diet but forever.

It was all about how I used the tool given to me.  Now I follow a healthy eating regime. No fad diet or something temporary.  

Does that mean I do not enjoy food?  No! I love food and actually eat nicer, tastier food than before.  I learned more about what healthy food is, whether all sugars are bad for you and if fat makes you fat.

This didn’t happen overnight.

By taking time and learning slowly I could apply smaller changes into my life.  Some I didn’t even notice. Looking at my diet six months apart I could see a big change.

What I noticed was that I ate nicer food.  Food that I could really slow down and enjoy.  Rather than eat fast and not remember what it tasted like I now enjoy what I eat and remember the foods I eat.

Why not try to slow down and really savour what you are eating today?  What is it that you life or dislike about it.
