Dieting Psychology
Diet plans can never be a one size fits all where different people with individual goals are following the same plan. ⠀

⠀ The diet needs to be customized to :⠀ ■ The individual ⠀ ■ Body composition⠀ ■ Daily activity levels⠀ ■ Fitness goal⠀ ■ Diet history⠀ ■ Eating habits⠀ ■ Other medical constraints⠀ ⠀ Let's take an example:⠀ ⠀ The two women have different height, weight, body composition (BF%, waist, hips etc). And hence, the TDEE (Total daily energy expenditure) of both these women is different.⠀ ⠀ Both women have a common goal of weight loss.⠀ ⠀ ■ Woman A - TDEE = 2400 calories ⠀ ■ Woman B - TDEE = 1800 calories⠀ (TDEE - Total Daily Energy Expenditure)⠀ ⠀ If woman A were to share her weight loss plan of 2100 calories with Woman B. Upon blindly following the diet plan, Woman B would start gaining weight.⠀ ⠀ WHY?? - While Woman A having maintenance calories as 2400 can lose weight while eating a diet of 2100 calories, if Woman B follows the same @2100 calories, her weight would start increasing.⠀ ⠀ RATIONALE - To lose weight we have to eat in a deficit i.e. less than our TDEE. That means we have to eat less than what our body consumes.⠀ ⠀ TAKE AWAY - Do NOT follow diet plans of other people BLINDLY !! Coach - Shashank Shekhar
