Maria's Last Diet

A psychologist team helps you break through the emotional barriers to permanent weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Maria’s Last Diet is an online source that is geared toward helping women stay on a diet and keep the weight off. It is not a diet per se, but rather it is a series of tools and support that assist the dieter in overcoming those obstacles that she traditionally stumbles upon- such as losing motivation after the first few days, emotional eating or thinking negatively about herself.

The website, which will also be accompanied by a book due out sometime in 2008, was created by a husband and wife team of psychologists. “Maria” is any woman who has had dieting issues and has unsuccessfully kept weight off. Maria’s Last Diet is a support system backed by psychological principles which tries to get you to understand the underlying issues why you can’t lose weight and offers exercises and support to address and overcome them.

PRO
  • It’s psychological emphasis helps to identify food as a symptom of the problem rather than the problem itself
  • Created by two psychologists who use applied research and clinical trials to address food-related issues
  • Support is available from other community members
  • Program relies on healthy eating, adequate exercise and a positive outlook
  • Use along with any diet you choose
CON
  • Not ideal for someone who needs a concrete dieting plan
  • Not ideal for someone who just wants to lose weight without addressing the psychological issues of their weight gain
  • Not ideal for men
  • Does not provide specific diet guidance
DIET and NUTRITION

Maria’s Last Diet does not include a food or eating plan per se. You choose a diet that you think will work for you and then receive support and insight from the website and its tools which include:

  • Dieting quizzes help you gain insight into your specific dieting problem areas

  • Diet-related articles

  • Diet newsletter

  • Weight-loss blog

  • Question of the week

All of these tools are intended to change your eating-related habits permanently.

 

EXERCISE

One of the exercises that Maria’s Last Diet requires that you do is the exercise that follows the question of the week. It is meant to look at any repetitive patterns of behavior that you engage in and reflect upon them in an attempt to draw awareness around them and to ultimately change these patterned ways of thinking and acting.

It is this sort of mental exercise that is supposed to improve your adherence to your diet and eventually meet your weight loss goals.

CONCLUSION

Maria’s Last Diet is an introspective look into how our thoughts and actions sabotage our ability to stick to our diets. Created by a husband and wife team who work in the field of psychology, the idea behind the program is built on psychological research that looks at the factors contributing to long-term weight loss and failed diets. If you have dealt with years of unsuccessful dieting attempts and food-related issues, Maria’s Last Diet is a way for you to delve into the core issues surrounding your patterns of eating and work with them with the final goal of this diet truly being your last one. But if you’re not looking for any kind of a psychological exercise as you count calories, Maria’s Last Diet may be too heady for you.
