Diet Preparation 2

Like any assault course, dieting and fitness can be hard going. So give yourself a good start by knowing where others have already fallen off the track with this three point tip.

Tip 1. Start Slowly
Many fail because they are too aggressive, too eager to get to the end of the road. You’ve got to start out slowly, let your own body tell you how fast a pace to set. If you are changing your diet do it gently, one step at a time. If you are starting out with exercise take it gradually and build up to it.

Remember: if you go off like a rocket – you’ll soon find yourself back on Earth with a bump!

Tip 2. Know where you’re going
You wouldn’t start a journey without knowing where you are going and how you are going to get there. Sit down and jot down some notes setting out your goals along the way and what you are going to do to get there.

Remember: if you fail to plan then you are planning to fail!

Tip 3. Getting into the habit

Successful dieting and fitness revolves around successful habits you won’t break. Eat meals at the same time each day, exercise at the same time each week; make your life predictable and those habits will be hard to break.

Remember – good habits keep you on the trim and slim!

As soon as you know you are going to diet, you throw out all the bad, high calorie, high-fat food and get in a load of expensive low-fat food right?

Wrong! That is probably the worst thing that you can do. The sudden shock of being deprived of food you enjoy and have always eaten is guaranteed to put you off a diet for life, your approach needs to be much more subtle.

Begin by making small changes and don’t set a date to start your diet yet. Eat more of the food that you will eat and less of the food you usually eat.

Over a month, or maybe more, make the changes gradually thus letting you try the new way of eating while still being able to fall back on food you are used to.

This way the change will not be as much of a shock to the system. This is valuable testing time, too, you can see how it feels to eat the sort of food your diet demands and check that you are OK with it.

It also gives you the chance to adapt or change your proposed diet if you need to. Once you are half way through your test period, set a date to start and work up to eliminating all the bad old food by that date.

Now you are ready to start your diet.
