Have you ever felt as if you have been on a diet forever without ever seeing any significant weight loss? Have you tried various diets only for your weight to stay the same or even worse, for you to get heavier? If so you may be making simple mistakes that are preventing you from achieving successful weight reduction. Here are a few:-
Skipping meals:- There is a common misconception out there, that is you skip one or two meals every day, you will lose weight. This routine is unsustainable, and eventually you will overeat . The key is healthy, sustainable eating patterns, which is one of the reasons the DietDeli Weight Loss Plans are based on 6 meals a day.
Ignoring the need to exercise:- Exercise is crucial to your weight loss regime. A good routine will maximise your loss of fat and minimise your loss of muscle.
Making unrealistic goals:- Many diets are not planned in terms of realistic goals and the ultimate goal seems so far away that the dieter gets disheartened and gives up. If your goal is to lose a stone, then set realistic short term goals for achieving that. A realistic target is to lose 1-3 lbs per week, so set yourself weekly goals based on this. By doing this your motivation will stay high and that long term goal will become much more achievable.
Not being honest with yourself:- Only you can answer this, but if you tend to cheat a little by robbing a few chips from your kids plates or picking at food while you’re preparing the dinner, then try to find ways to combat it, such as eating a DietDeli Nutritional Bar while you’re in the kitchen.
Poor planning:- Good planning is essential to any diet. Know what you are going to eat each day and stick to it. Try to work out what you will be cooking and write your shopping list accordingly so you buy only the right things in the supermarket.
Finally, it is easy to feel disheartened and frustrated if you do have a bad day on a diet. It is vital not to let these bad moments thwart your whole diet. Keep trying. If you return to your weight loss plan and continue your exercise routine, then weight loss is not impossible.
