Have you tried a number of crash diets that leave you feeling defeated because you did not lose a pound? Rest assured that you are not alone, but thankfully you can bounce back from failure. If your approach keeps you from losing weight, then that is where you should make the first change. An attempt to lose as much weight in a little time as possible does not lead to success. This is not a competition with anyone, but rather the effort to lose weight in a healthy way. There are a few things you need to learn while on your journey to a slimmer, healthier you.
Break your unhealthy habits
If you are overweight, then chances are you developed a few unhealthy habits that need to be broken. What better time to start than now? Some people might eat a reasonable portion for their main meals, but they tend to snack a lot, which is even worse. The problem with snacking is that you are unaware how much you are really eating until it is too late. If are guilty of this, it is time to stop this unhealthy habit. When you need to snack, opt for healthy portions of fruits or nuts instead of chips.
Don’t skip breakfast
Anyone who skips breakfast makes a mistake that many dieters make and, ultimately, regret because skipping breakfast will not make you lose weight. Breakfast is the first meal of the day and sets the pace for the rest of your day. It is also a very important part of your weight loss progress. Research has shown that there is a direct link between breakfast and successful weight loss. When you eat a healthy breakfast, the body feels nourished and you are less likely to overindulge during the rest of the day. Make healthy breakfast choices such as whole grain toast, fruits, cereal, orange juice, or a glass of skim milk.
I have been a personal trainer since 2009, but since 2013 with my clients at the gym, I had this little experiment about testing different diets and programs bought from the internet. We tested 30 programs with 100 clients and me and my clients together determined which one is the best and which one is the most effective.Please have a look at the results of the experiment..
