Extremes are easy/ patience + moderation is difficult.
Extreme dieting, fitness-ing or health kicks are enticing with the fast results, and easy to stick to in the very short term. However, long-term they wreak havoc on your body + your outlook on what a healthy lifestyle should be. Moderate and long-term planning might seem boring in comparison to a quick 'fix', but it is far more sustainable and provides superior results.
Restriction, rigid eating & cutting out whole food groups only works for a short period of time, meaning the results are equally as short. Why can't we understand this?
Because we rely on motivation - which works for the first few days. But once motivation is gone, we ignore the fact that it's discipline that will take us where we want to go.
Because we want what we want now.
Because we overestimate what we can do in a month, and underestimate what we can do in a year.
