The individual must want to lose weight. If you're actually ambivalent or do it to please someone else, you're probably going to fail. Choose what is right for your lifestyle when making changes. The diet and exercise plan of your best friend may be entirely false with your health habits and interests. The key is to find a functioning system for you.
If you're not perfect, don't blame yourself. If your attempt to reduce your over-eating once fails, it does not mean that you have a weight management failure and should give up. Allow yourself to make a poor choice, but don't allow this poor choice to affect the rest of your food plan. The same applies to workouts. It doesn't mean you can't return on track by skipping a few exercises. Weight control does not consist of making constantly perfect choices but of trying to make better health choices than poor ones.
Don't go starving. Don't go starving. Don't skip food and have healthy, low-fat snacks always available. You are more likely to eat and make poor food choices when you become hungry. Try eating regular and healthy meals. Evite the environment in which you know that your choice of food is poor
Either the morning coffee break or post-work meetings with friends are the time when you are most likely to overeat. Try to plan other activities or distractions for that time or plan how you will handle them and stick to them in advance.
Entertain people who support your efforts. Surely or unwittingly even our friends can sabotage attempts at weight loss. Spend time with people who do not pressure you to choose poor food.
When you achieve interim targets, decide on a few non-food rewards. Please buy yourself a new DVD, app or book at the end of your first week of healthy eating or after losing 5 pounds.
This isn't a reason to give up if you have a slip-up. Treatment and excessive consumption must not be the end of your healthy food plan. Just resume your healthy food plan and forgive yourself following this overeating episode.
Store your cupboard with healthy foods and refrigerator. Remove the low calorie snacks such as chips and snacks. But don't forget to have plenty of healthier options available as well, such as popcorn (hold the butter, try Parmesan cheese sprinkles), low-fat cheese and yogurt, fruit, instant cocoa without added sugar, sugar-free popsicles or puddings, or whatever appeals to you when you're hungry for a snack.
