Hey everyone it’s Robert here again for another edition of my weekly Defining Weight Loss column!
Today I’m going to talk about something that is asked about a lot on our Facebook page and that is… what are some ways you can stick to your weight loss program, especially if it’s a brutal one.
The fact is, the majority of people who start on a weight loss plan don’t end up finishing it.
But why is it so hard to stick to sometimes? Why can’t we just survive those dreaded few months and transform ourselves easily?
Well there is a few key mistakes many people make long the way and today I want to take a closer look at these.
I’ll give you a few good secrets along the way and if you use them, you’ll can be almost certain you won’t be giving up on any diet plan any time soon!
- Get A Diet Buddy
Here is a great word of advice… Don’t do it alone! If you get a friend and have them join you along for your weight loss journey you’ve got extra back up.
It’s someone you can count on and a way you can lean on each other to ensure nobody falls off track.
You will experience every high and every low with them and at the end of the day you’ll be sure to see great results together!
- Focus On Staying Fuller Longer
The biggest reason why people can’t stick with their diets is hunger.
It’s that pesky annoying pain that eats away at us (no pun intended). But honestly you should never really feel that hungry during a diet.
When you feel like this it usually means you have it all wrong.
You may be cutting your calories back too much or not focusing on foods that keep you fuller longer. Try to focus your food intake on foods that digest slowly like lean proteins or carbs filled with fiber.
- Set Short Term Goals
One of the most important things to do is to set short term goals.
Don’t look into 6 months down the road because you are sure to fail thinking it takes that long. Just look within the next 3 or 4 weeks.
When you start doing that you realize your diet becomes a habit and makes it easier to break free of that short span and easier to take it much longer.
Remember nothing can happen overnight, it does take time, but maybe not as much as people perceive.
So there you have it! Follow those 3 keys and you can guarantee your next diet adventure will be one you won’t fail!
Thanks for reading today’s column and I’ll see you next time!
