Diet Tips for Weight Loss

For many of us starting a new diet is relatively easy, but after several days or weeks it becomes harder to stay motivated. There might be a few setbacks along the way, but it is how you deal with them that matters. Below is a list of dieting tips to help you keep your diet on track.

1. Review your initial goals

Why did you originally decide to lose weight? When things get tough, look at your list to keep motivated and stay on your diet.

2. Value what you’ve achieved so far

Instead of beating yourself up over the things you haven’t done yet, take a moment to pat yourself on the back.

3. Reward yourself

It’s important to recognise even small successes when it comes to weight loss. But make sure these are not food related!

4. Stop taking on too much, too quickly

Plan one step at a time and make sure you’re happy with each step before moving on to the next.

5. Watch out for food triggers

Keep a food and mood diary to identify non-hungry eating and pin down clues that could lead to unhealthy eating habits.

6. Be prepared for good and bad days

When days don’t go as well as planned, don’t give up. Think positively, focus on your overall goals and get back on track.

7. Create a vision

Form a mental picture of yourself looking fitter, healthier and looking great. It’ll help you to stay focussed.

8. Use YouTube for inspiration

Some of the best motivational speakers are right at your fingertips. A positive frame of mind is the gateway to success.

9. Spring clean your wardrobe

As you start losing weight, do a clear out of your wardrobe and take bigger-sized clothes to a charity shop.

10. Take time out for meals

Eat slowly and be aware of each bite. Remember, your brain takes about 20 minutes to realise your stomach is full.
