Just make sure that there isn’t just one diet that applies to everybody. The rule is you have to be yourself!
The first rule for dieting is: No one size fits all. Just understand there people should stay in their lane. Why we try to compare ourselves with others? The moment you observe what works for you or whatnot, you cruise along!
Don’t assume on grounds of whatever worked for your sister, coworker or friend will work for you as well. Try to observe your personality, likes and dislikes and notice what kind of diet tips will work for you.
You dwell upon past
If you fall in a category of “remembering the best” then you might just end up having a diet failure. You will remind yourself about “ here we are again”. “I’ve tried this dieting thin before or it didn’t work or I think it’s not working for me.
But try to rephrase your nostalgia and think about the times when you were successful with healthy eating. There must be incidents when you looked incredible and thought of diet as a priority for you.
Plan your meals that you can have on your weekends which can help you to stick to your diet. Or, if you’re strapped in some work then prefer order food from a meal plan service.
You are an over – thinker
Female expectations are impossible! According to CSIRO, an Australian research organization stated this. People who are over-analytical and tend to set impractical expectations are considered into this category and especially women fall under this category.
There is a proven plan like weight watchers which was rated as the top diet for weight loss according to US News And World Reports, will give you a lot of nutrition suggestion which includes a helpful approach for overcoming challenges.
You follow the rule
Are you one of those who follows the schedule of what to eat and when to eat? Does your brain work better in a structural or formal way? This is called ‘set it and forget it’ mode.
There are many high rated commercials diets which offer this kind of structured eating.
You like to socialize
Prepackaged diet plans are not for those people who are extrovert. If you share meals with family and friends and you can’t say no to them, then it is important for you to know how to make healthier choices, especially when eating out.
“Choose your social outings sensibly and say no to few things”. You have to cut back your socializing to two nights a week in spite of four and try to eat light snacks or you could start opting for vegetables and salads in your plate.
You don’t follow the formula
That’s for sure me! If you’re someone who doesn’t like to be told what to eat and what not, probably in this scenario mindful eating plays a part. It will hold a lot of appeal to you.
Mindful eating is “not a diet” and is known to tune into your body and hunger and keeps you to slow down your pace while eating. The best thing about mindful eating is that there are no “off-limits” in food like sugar.
Do you overeat while you’re upset? Many people attribute overeating to sadness which shows that this way of thinking might induce your behavior.
Give a quick check for your hunger and know your reasons for eating. If you fall under this category then it will be quite preposterous for you to chase your strict diet that cut out whole favorite foods.
That will trigger your cravings more and for emotional eaters, they want something like the Mediterranean diet.
Most of us befit into this category because chocolate or ice cream is bliss for those people. If you are from this one then you must stay beyond these trigger foods. This doesn’t mean that you can never indulge.
For instance, you want to have chocolate or ice-cream, then delay it for dinner. That control over your cravings will give you a feeling of an endowment.
That means that you are eating 80 percent healthy food and enjoying 20 percent of your cheat food or fast food. This 80:20 ratio help impulsive people feel balanced – and not guilty.
Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for soul!
