The 4 golden rules on how to stick to your diet.
Now that you understand that there is no one diet that will work for everyone and you need to find out which one will work for you, there is four components that you should consider before jumping into a toxic relationship with your health.
Below you will find the 4 principles that will help you stay on your diet and enjoy it all at the same time, you won’t have to work too hard for your diet, instead, it will work for you.
1.) sustainable diets are the ones that work
A diet shouldn’t be an unimaginable task to complete, using all your will power, leaving you down in the dumps. Instead of having something so restrictive you should look for a diet that allows you to do all the things you used to do and not feel like you are putting tremendous amounts of effort in.
You should still be able to enjoy dinner time with friends and family, go to the shops and not have to put things back because you can’t afford them and you should be enjoying the food that you are making.
Even if you somehow lose a bit of timber from one of them horrible weight loss programs, it’s likely that you are causing harm to your body and you’ll probably go back to your old ways after a few months or even weeks. This occurs when you are on the renowned yo-yo diet that everyone seems to be on.
Rather than cutting all of the bad food out of your diet in one, slowly eliminate the foods that you know aren’t good for you, remember, this isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. You can also introduce healthy ingredients to replace the foods you use to eat, you don’t need to go crazy either, buying kombucha and ghee, small steps are better than no steps.
By having a diet you can keep up with it will make it easier for you to keep on it, making it feel like a part of your life and not needing immense amounts of will power.
2.) you need your diet to be nutritious
One of the problems with these fad diets is that they might make you lose weight but, it’s because they are so restrictive leaving you very malnourished and they can even cause long-term health problems.
They lack in many essential vitamins and minerals and also they usually exclude at least one macronutrient eg; fats, carbohydrates or protein's. Leading to you being deficient in certain areas.
You need all the macronutriens, iron, calcium, omega-3s and much much more!
Unfortunately, many leading “health” brands are filling their products with ingredients that aren’t nutritionally dense and in some cases things that can be very bad for you over time yet, they leave you wanting more.
The main culprit is sugar, with many new studies suggesting that it is highly addictive. It also has many disguise’s so, it is important to read the labels carefully.
As we said in the first rule for choosing your new diet, it is important for you to be able to sustain so, although it’s not my preferred diet, here’s a link to what the NHS recommends you to eat.
3.) you need to burn more calories than you eat
The number one rule if you want to loose weight is that you need to have a calorie deficit, this means that you need to burn more calories than you consume through food, this is usually done through exercise as it’s one of the most efficient ways of burning calories.
Don’t try and be clever thinking that you should eat less, but not do any form of exercise, stop being so lazy! Instead, maybe skip on the packet of crisps but, don’t make that your excuse for not having enough energy for some moderate exercise, concentrate on filling up your body with the right fuel in accordance with your daily activity. You may want to buy yourself a Fitbit charger 3 to track your calories.
4.) they fit your lifestyle
did you know that the word diet comes from the Greek word diaita meaning way of living!
Your lifestyle plays a key role in your weight loss goals and that’s why it is so important to find a program that suits you best. For an example if you’re a bodybuilder you will probably be needing more calories than the average couch potato.
You may need to change your diet if you have any allergies or intolerance’s as your health is one of the fundamentals of life.
I think the best way to find the diet that fits your lifestyle the best is by experimenting as you know what works the best for you!
