The most common reasons you don’t get results
If you can’t stick to a diet for more than a few weeks, this post is for you.
Another year is over and…I lost no weight, I look the same, I don’t like the way I look in pictures, I don’t feel in control around food.
Why do we always start off on a diet raring to go only to quickly fizzle out?
Its more than “Just eat right and exercise consistently!”
UGHHH! IF ONLY IT WAS SO EASY!!!
1) The plan you’re trying to follow isn’t sustainable.
Forget about fad diets. You can only follow a cookie, shake or grapefruit diet for so long. You can only a follow a no fat, no carb, no sugar, no fun, no anything diet for so long.
Before you start any diet ask yourself, “Can I see myself eating like this in five years from now?” If the answer is no — then the diet you’re thinking about starting isn’t sustainable.
2) You never change your relationship with food
This is critically important.
Here’s the problem:
Most people go on what I call a “food diet.” One month they’re only eating X. The next month they’re only eating Y. The following month they’re only eating Z. We all know people like this. They go from one “food diet” to the next.
Of course it does. We’ve all done it. We pick a diet and follow the rules for as long as we can using willpower.
However, if the only thing you’re changing is the food you’re eating, you’re not going to change for the long term.
3) Daily and personal accountability + Daily Support
It’s too easy to make promises to yourself and break them. No one knows if you keep them or not…so you hardly ever do. We all know this feeling. The feeling of having been lied to. By ourselves. It’s an awful feeling.
Unless you’re being held accountable and being supported daily, it’s very hard to stick with it. It’s too easy to rationalize to ourselves. It’s also very hard to sustain the effort required to lose weight.
