The thought of dieting can be the kiss of death for many, but if you can view this as a new phase in your life it may be just the thing that will mean success for you and your fitness and health goals. This video gives a realistic approach to finding a diet-style that will work for you.
In order to have real success you must make think about your eating style. This is the only way that you will be able to shed those unwanted pounds without experiencing the horrible guilt that so many dieters go through each and every step of the way with their diets.
- Set goals for yourself. Keep them aggressive but realistic for fitness, dropping pounds, and eating new healthy foods. Even if your goal is as simple as eating 5 vegetable servings a day it is a great place to start.
- Change your way of eating. Then change your way of seeing food and you will experience amazing changes in your attitudes toward your health, your body, and even your fitness level. When the pounds begin to go, you will begin to experience more energy and less pain when exercising. This should help keep you motivated to do even more.
- Do not think that long term weight loss goals will be as easy to achieve as the first five or ten pounds. Consistency is vitally important when making these lifestyle changes. Take each day as it comes and begin again the very next day. This means that even if you fall completely “off the wagon” today, you can start over tomorrow. The trick is in staying the course more days than not and learning moderation and balance when it comes to straying from the straight and narrow.
