Dieting can be a frustrating experience, at times resulting in feelings of guilt or tempting cravings. In the seventh installment of ABC News’ “Healthy Living for Summer” series, we spoke with Shawn Stevenson, a nutritionist, author and host of the podcast “The Model Health Show,” who shared advice on how to get a balanced diet without necessarily having to diet.
“The actual cause of overeating, as it boils down to it, is that nutrient-deficiency contributes to chronic overeating,” Stevenson said. “We will need to be proactive with our nutrition, rather than reactive.”
Having a balanced lifestyle is preferable to sticking to a specific sort of diet, Stevenson advises.
Below is more advice Stevenson gave ABC News. See the video above for more details.
