The Key To Weight Loss – Be Prepared

Let’s face it, going on a diet isn’t anybody’s idea of having a good time. At least not for the countless number pf people who have been on and off many diets. Now, they all have something in common, and that’s good intentions. Everybody that starts a diet has high hopes, and thinks they’ll be able to stick to it…this time. But then something happens and they slip a little. Then they feel bad and that leads to more slipping, and pretty soon you’re completely off your weight loss program and may even weigh more than when you started.

If this sounds like you, then you are not alone. In fact, it’s safe to say that more people go off their diets than stick to them. However, the good news is that there are some things you can do to greatly increase your chances of sticking to your diet, for good.

It’s all about preparation, and that comes in two forms.

1. Be prepared. You are going to be tempted to eat “forbidden” foods any time you change your diet. Therefore, you have to either not have any forbidden foods or you have to avoid them.

It all starts with which weight loss plan you choose. The best thing you can do is to select one that allows you to eat as many different foods as possible. This way you won’t be tempted to splurge, as the splurges will be built in. One of the most popular diets says you have to basically eliminate carbohydrates from your diet. Sure, it may be effective, but it’s next to impossible to stick to. Think about it, it’s not asking you to give up one or two foods, it’s asking you to not eat an entire group of foods! That’s almost begging for the diet to fail.

Of course we all have some foods that we just can’t seem to get enough of; foods that we feel addicted to. Maybe you can’t limit yourself to only one or two chocolate chip cookies, or maybe you always eat at least half a bag of potato chips. Whatever the case, you know yourself best, so your best line of defense is to not have those particular foods in the house.

2. Prepared foods. If you are used to eating fast food, or ready-made foods from the supermarket, then switching over to eating healthier can be a real chore. Chances are you will be eating more fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean protein. This usually means cooking from scratch. But it doesn’t have to be inconvenient. You can buy pre-cut frozen fruits and vegetables, making preparation just as easy as any convenience food. Food makers are also getting wise to the idea that people are concerned about their health. It used to be the only frozen dinners you could get were high-fat, calorie-laden fare such as meat loaf or fried chicken; and they didn’t taste all that great either. Times have changed. Now you can get low-calorie frozen meals that not only help you to lose weight, but taste great, too.
