Diets are so difficult to implement.Why is that?
So many diets… So much failure.
What’s the biggest reason diets are so difficult to implement successfully? Are you ready? Here’s the answer: All diets require you to change your lifestyle. It's that easy. After all, if you keep doing what you’ve been doing, you're not going to lose weight. Right?
But who wants to change their lifestyle? That’s so difficult to do. Which explains why diets are so difficult and why they lead to so much frustration.
Not everyone is willing to change their lifestyle. If it was simple, more people would lose weight and keep it off.
So what’s a person to do? Are there really any techniques that will help you change your lifestyle? Techniques that will at least give you a chance at success. The answer is yes.
The above formula reduces the burden you take on when you diet.
At Everyday-Wisdom.com we say it’s best to start by making small changes in your diet that cumulate over time and couple them with workouts that don’t take so much out of you that you hate to exercise. This gives you a fighting chance at success and explains how to go from "diets are so difficult" to "this diet is really working."
Someone might ask the question: What if I have a lot of weight to lose? How can I start small?
Here‘s the good news:
This means that over time, small cumulative changes in your diet can become larger changes in your diet. And Mini Workouts can turn into larger workouts. This is how you can change your lifestyle over time with the least amount of pain. This is how you finally walk away from the thought that diets are so difficult.
The Best Weight Loss Plan In The World
The best diet plan in the world? That’s easy. It’s a diet plan you will stick with until you reach your weight loss goal. After all, a diet plan you won’t stick with won’t help!
along with the links to the websites from which we got the tips.)
First: A small change anyone can make: "Drink at least one full-glass of water or unsweetened iced tea before eating your meal. This helps your digestive process, and, because you'll feel full sooner, you will eat less."
Second: "Don't give it [food you like] up if you don't want to, just reduce your intake." Even if it is a small reduction.
Third: "Fruits and vegetables are nature's original fast food. When it's snack time, grab Fruit— an apple or orange, or a zip lock bag and fill it with sweet cherries, grapes, dried dates, figs, prunes, raisins, or apricots.”
And finally, number four: "Eating out a lot? Halve it, and bag the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage, and dessert." If you don’t halve your meal, at least take some home or leave some on your plate.
These four tips form a framework to help you cut way back on the calories you presently consume. Now, on to the exercise segment of the formula.
“In recent years, exercise experts have conceded that the 30 minutes of activity a day we're all advised to get doesn't have to be in one lump of time. Breaking the half hour into three 10 minute increments may be just as good for you. Work in a 10 minute walk before work, at lunch and when you get home. By the end of the day, you've gotten 30 minutes of exercise broken up into tiny jolts!”
What should you do if you don’t stay within the guidelines listed above? That’s easy. Just start again. After all, as a child when you first started walking, it wasn‘t easy was it? You fell down a lot. All children do. But that didn’t stop you from getting up and trying again. You got up and tried again. And again, and again. Finally, lo and behold, you did walk.
When dieting, you will fall down as well. It is at that moment you have to get back up and start again. Just like you did as a child. Over time, you will form new habits that will enable you to lose the weight you want to lose. And remember this: The more you do, the better you’ll get at it.
So now you know why diets are so difficult. But you also have a strategy to make the burden a lot lighter.
