For this post, I want to talk about something different to specific diets. Every time you pick up a magazine, or see an advert on the TV, there is a new diet.
Ask yourself, how many different diets have you tried in the past? How many of them worked? If it did work, then why aren’t you still sticking with that diet? If it didn’t work, why do you think that is, are all diets scams?
Well, here’s the shocking truth, I am willing to be that 95% of the diets you have tried or head of DO work. The problem is, you need to follow it strictly and for a long enough period to see the results. What normally happens is because you don’t acquire a perfect beach body within two weeks, you jump onto another diet you see on the front of a glossy magazine.
Listen, I don’t blame you, I know how it feels. I have done the same thing in different areas of my life where I haven’t seen the results I want happening within a short period of time, and then get distracted by another ‘shiny object’ which promises results in half the time with half the effort.
I’m sorry if this doesn’t sound encouraging at this stage of the article, but sometimes we need to accept responsibility for ourselves, and realise that we are often the way we are due to the way we act.
It would be fair to say though, that there are some diets which would be better suited to your body type and lifestyle than others, so it would be wise to find a diet which has worked for somebody else who is similar to you.
The reason for this is so that you can put 100% effort into the diet knowing that it has the best chance of success. Otherwise, if you try something just on the basis that it sounds good, you will probably just ‘give it a shot’. When you do something half assed, you’ll get half assed results.
In some cases, people just don’t even get started. Maybe you enjoy the small high you get when you buy a magazine with a new diet in it, or you have bought a diet DVD, but once that wears off, the effort required to get rolling feels too much like an up-hill battle.
As humans, we are great at putting up barriers in our mind. If you start out with the mindset of ‘well, this probably won’t work’, then guess what, it won’t work. With that attitude, you definitely won’t be trying it for 6 months whole hearted.
SOLUTION: Instead, set yourself the goal that you will follow the diet plan strictly, but just for the next 30 days. So, if it says you need to give up pizza, or beer, or potato crisps, then make sure you do it. If it says you need to walk for 30 minutes a day, then do it without fail.
This way, it won’t feel like such an uphill battle. It won’t feel like you are giving up your favorite food forever. However, what will happen, is because you have followed that diet strictly for 30 days, not only will it become as habitual as brushing your teeth in the morning, but you will be able to see physical results to spur you on further.
Face it, if you knew, and I mean really KNEW that in 30 days you could look in the mirror an improvement based directly on the action you have taken for just 30 days, wouldn’t that encourage you to continue, and maybe even step it up a gear.
A lot more details here : – phenq.
ACTION PLAN: Find a diet which you are comfortable with, one you feel you can stick with and has given results to others like yourself, and then stick with it, just for 30 days and then see the improvements. Once you get this far, you are well on the way to the body you want, and have already got the worst part of the journey out the way.
