I don’t diet,” says Jennifer Lawrence

2014, THE HUNGER GAMES -  MOCKINGJAY - Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence
A refreshing attitude. “I don’t diet,” says Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence has the right idea about dieting.

“I don’t diet,” she tells Glamour Magazine. “I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?” 

We agree! And kudos to Lawrence for speaking out against dieting. At HomeBodyFit we promote a healthy lifestyle and not fad or crash diets. Our clients are encouraged to never diet and instead feed their bodies nutritious foods when hungry in order to keep their energy levels up. HomeBodyFit founder Matt Johnson writes:

In fact, I eat more now than when I was overweight, I simply changed what and when I ate certain foods. I have developed a program that works for me and our clients. We can show you how. 

Lawrence also told Glamour, “It’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.”

1. DIETING IN FITS AND SPURTS
Dieting: Let’s briefly analyze the concept itself. Most people jump on the dieting bandwagon with a specific timeframe and goal in mind. The logic might go a little something like this: “If I cut carbs for six weeks, I can fit into that pair of pants,” or, “If I replace sweets with veggies for the next few months, I’ll lose those last 10 pounds in time for my high school reunion.” No matter their reason, most people have something they’re striving for and a due date for when it has to be completed.

The reality is that we all want things done now. We want everything to be fast and effortless. Whether it’s a 30-day challenge or a 90-day transformation plan, it seems that nearly every goal has a date or finite time associated with it. While a sense of urgency might initially get you off the couch and into the gym, will it dramatically change you in the long run? Probably not.
