Whilst dieting can help people reach their goals in achieving a healthy weight loss, there are many people who fall off the wagon and just can’t follow through. In fact thousands of people spend a big part of their lives swinging between every new fad diet that hits the market.
This might sound depressing but it is surmountable and dieting doesn’t have to result in failure. What it comes down to is your mental attitude and commitment to making a diet work. You already know there is no magic trick that will make it happen the only way to success is through your own efforts.
I know it is easier to throw in the towel than commit to exerting yourself, but is that way going to get you the body of your dreams? Of course not, but you already know that. Understanding why your diet attempts are failing is the first step to getting you on the right path. Once you grasp the concepts laid out below, I won’t say it is all plain sailing but it is certainly going to be more effective than the dead end path you have been following so far.
Do Diets Work- not if :
1. You Simply Don’t Believe In It
It may sound childish and petty to you, but you have to admit it; everyone who goes into a new diet plan experiences that niggle of inevitable doubt. What if it doesn’t work out? What if you end up gaining more weight? What if this diet is not for you? Instead of asking all these “what if’s”, why not ask yourself why you don’t believe in it. I’m sure you’ll be quite surprised to find out that doubt comes from your own feelings of pessimism. When you think that there is no chance to keep up with your diet plan, then it will simply not happen.
You have to remember that all things you do in life are dependent on your points of view and your perspectives. This is also why it is important to be positive and believe that it will all work out. I know this sounds too hard at first. It may be a matter of weeks or months before you start seeing weight loss changes, but hey, at least you know there would be some if you stick with the plan.
2. You’ve Tried It Before
Yes, you failed. Should we get over that idea and start things anew? There would always be times when you would feel as if you are set for failure since you have been in the same situation and saw yourself going for the dumpsters. Well hear this; it is high time you change that about yourself! I know you may have miserably failed during the past while keeping up with your old weight loss plan. But that shouldn’t stop you from turning that failure into something that will make you prouder in the end? The best thing about recovering from failures is that you are able to prove something to yourself and the other people around you.
It may be your fault or that of your nutritionist’s, but regardless of who made the wrong decision, it is still your weight loss plan. Own it and do something about it. Keep in mind that the only way to correct a wrong diet plan is to go with something that has been proven and tested. Talk to your nutritionist or doctor and make sure you get a weight loss plan that is suitable for you. If you do that you have a better chance of making a diet work.
