#10. Forget about Diets
Strict diets don’t work and they mess with your head. The best approach is to make healthy changes you can live with and keep them up. You must enjoy your food and not feel in a constant state of deprivation
#9. Get Help
An Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) is highly trained to provide you with personalized assessment advice and ongoing support. If you like the group approach, the Weight Watchers program is based on good nutrition and the psychology of successful weight loss.
#8. Think Differently
When asked how they lost weight, many successful slimmers say they didn’t sweat the small stuff and stayed focused on the bigger picture. They had a long term goal of feeling and looking better and changed their thinking around food and weight to a more positive and encouraging mindset. Beating yourself up about your weight or that treat you ate is not helpful.
#7. Be Realistic
Ignore popular television shows in which contestants shed half their body weight. They have used drastic measures that simply aren’t compatible with real life. Studies have shown losing 10 per cent of body weight is enough to experience significant health benefits.
#6. Do It Slowly
Chances are your weight crept on slowly over time. Ideally it should come off in a similar fashion. You know this makes common sense, so be strong in the face of pressures for a quick fix.
