Look for lifestyle changes, not quick fixes
Have you ever gone on a very strict diet that had you dropping serious weight each week?
The compliments start rolling in and you feel like you got your groove back. But after a few weeks, you are bored and tired of eating the same things. You start reverting back to your old ways slowly and the next thing you know, all the weight is back along with a few more friends.
Healthy weight loss does not happen quickly and the faster the results, the faster they can be reversed. Think about making small, consistent changes that you can stick with in the long run.
Also, when considering a program, be sure it is suitable to your lifestyle. Rabbit food and repetitive meals are not maintainable for anyone!
Don’t just follow the fads
Every few months there is a new diet, workout or supplement that inspires a craze. It’s the ‘thing’ that you have been missing. The reason why you haven’t been successful in the past. Right?….Wrong!
It’s a fad, like all the others. It may work for some but healthy living is not ‘one size fits all’.
If it is causing you to eat or workout in a way that you don’t foresee as maintainable then it’s not going to stick.
Any program you try needs to be cohesive with your goals, likes, wants and needs.
You will of course need to make some changes to what you are currently doing but the changes should happen gradually.
Don’t give up everything you love
If you are starting a strict diet of cutting many of your fav foods….think again.
If you love carbs and currently have a carb heavy diet, it’s unrealistic to expect yourself to give them up cold turkey.
You may be able to do without for some time but will eventually rebound and in a BIG way. Binging usually happens because we restrict ourselves and psychology feel confined.
Look to have a good balance between eating what’s good for you with the occasional treats or indulgences. It’s not realistic to think that you will never have dessert, chips or pizza again.
