But on an individual level, we still understand relatively little about how each person should eat to optimise their health and weight.

Why one-size-fits-all diets don’t work. The coronavirus pandemic has pushed health to the forefront of many people’s minds. And while the best way to avoid COVID-19 is not to catch the virus in the first place, we’re starting to understand why some people become seriously ill with the disease while others have only mild or no symptoms. A diet too high in fat and carbohydrate may be the most common way millions of people eat, and certainly a reason why up to 76 percent of the world’s population is overfat. Eating only natural fats and natural carbohydrates is key.

Protein: Dietary protein can increase insulin stimulation too, and in this case can increase fat storage as well. Why one-size-fits-all diets don’t work – new study.

And while the best way to avoid COVID-19 is. Everyone is different; everyone has different health needs, different energy requirements for activities, different social situations. Therefore one diet does not fit all and is not suitable for everyone.

When giving dietary advice, dietitians take all this.

It is because while science seeks to find a one-size-fits-all approach to diet, it’s not possible because everyone reacts differently to different foods, and there isn’t a dietary strategy that will work for everyone.

But the reasons why traditional diets don’t work are the same reasons why the Every-Other-Day Diet does work—because it does away with daily deprivation and hard-to-follow rules.

While most experts and consumers accept the premise that fad diets don’t work, it’s tough for a nation of people who are influenced by weight stigma and, thus, obsessed with their bodies to believe that even “sensible dieting” is futile.

But on close examination, fad diets work not because they are high in one nutrient, low in another, or combine different nutrients in some magical combination; these diets cause weight loss for the simple reason that they are low in calories.

  • Hi Elisa! I completely agree with you, and I love your content. But You keep saying “dieting will make you gain more weight”, which kind of implies that gaining weight is actually a bad thing… I’m sure you didn’t mean it like that, but I can totally see how people can misread this message. Just wanted to note this as it could be triggering or sending out the wrong message!

  • I decided gain weight and I ate whatever I want in front of my parents but now my fear is come back and I just try to prove myself to mom which is so hard. Help me pls

  • Hi Elisa,
    I started eating disorder recovery about a year and a half ago but 9 months in I gained 30 pounds up from a certain weight. My doctor told me that if I kept gaining weight, I would become overweight again (I used to be overweight). I began restricting again and lost about 12 pounds in the next few months. I am tired of restricting and thinking of food and “binging”. Is it right for me to eat 2500 -3000 calories? I’m not sure if I need to overshoot to heal my metabolism. I’m sorry for the long question:(

  • Great talk. Very important to know. And accept. I still think being thin will solve all my problems. I see now that it has actually created most of my problems.

  • Hey could you please help me? This isn’t about dieting. But for some reason when I eat my stomach gets sore and my stomach grumbles after eating. And I’ve been getting anxiety for highschool. And before I couldn’t eat because I felt full or couldn’t eat. And I can’t keep over thinking about what will happen at highschool. Or sometimes food makes we feel sick? What do you think will help me???? I really need help.

  • This is so involved when the easiest, fastest, healthiest way to lose weight is Intermittent Fasting. Check out videos by Dr. Berg, Fledge Fitness, Thomas DeLauer. Science based. Learn.

  • Thank you!!! I agree with you, dieting lots of times results in gaining more weight but I have a question. Are you saying then that after having anorexia for 20 years and now In recovery, I will be “overweight”? Because I have understood that if I eat without restriction my metabolism will be repaired and that we all have a set point and a biological and genetic predisposition to a certain weight. I trust a lot In it but you make me feel that I could be overweight even I am very underweight now for my anorexia and I don’t want to be hungry in the future, never more. In fact, now I am eating a lot but gaining very slowly, very hot all day and improving! Thank you so much

  • I think Chalene is a wonderful inspiration. I’m toying back & forth between the 131 method & another program that does IF & Carb cycling. Does anyone know if this program includes carb cycling and specific workouts? Thanks so much for any information!

  • I’m investigating this way of eating and wonder if it is possible to do this way of eating for someone with hypoglycemia. I say this in regard to the intermittent fasting in particular.

  • Just another dumb diet video. Really just selling snake oil. You can start today if you have enough money!
    Intermittent fasting works and it’s free!

  • I take this along with lean belly breakthrough and the results are like magic! i’ve lost 35 pounds and its stayed off for over a year. I recommend this to anyone wanting to loose stubborn belly fat! Click the link -> https://bit.ly/2lpMAhO

  • Very helpful. Thanks for the reminder. Currently about a year into recovery and there have been many doubts along the way but these little reminders help get me back in the right mind frame x

  • Completely agree and well explained. Diets never work and I didn’t get fit and healthy until I realised that and made permanent changes. Great video ����

  • Hi Chalene, I am a fan and user of your programs and courses from 131, smart success, courageous confidence and MIA, what else can I say about you. I adore and admire you work so much! There are a lot more stories I want to share with you from listening to your advices through podcasts, your courses, academies and live event. I am hoping someday I can eventually say “ I really appreciate you “ in front of this lady, who took me out of rock bottom and reignite me from depression. I feel passionate to translate your work from English to Chinese Mandarin, it’s kind of my lifers, if you know what I mean:P, and because I’ve seen so many many people who struggle with their weight ( body image ), I believe that 131 is going to work by first educating then experimenting. If your’re able to see this comment, please shoot me a message at [email protected] gmail.com, would love to bring this idea to reality!!:)
