So, you have tried a lot of diet plans and have still not been able to cut back on food? A lot of best diet plans have gone down the drain? Here are some tips to help you get back in track.
First of all, include a lot of water in your diet. The best diet would be to satisfy your craving with just water and concentrate on eating to simply fuel your body. Water has no calories and is perfectly safe. Also, if you drink enough of it you might feel so full that you might want to skip a meal. If drinking plain water is too bland, try flavoring it with a slice of citrus fruit.
Also, never put off your favorite foods. By doing so, you are subconsiously preparing your body to go on an eating spree in the near future. Your best diet plan will include a generous helping of your favorite food, but not so much that it becomes over-eating.
When preparing your diet plan, try to think of what you can include in the plan, rather than what you can exclude from it. Not only is this a great way of motivating yourself, but it is also a fun way to think of healthy and unique dishes to put into the plan. Also, when you feel you are really hungry, ask yourself if eating is going to satisfy you. Most of the times, we eat not out of hunger, but out of habit. Remember that after eating, you are supposed to feel satisfied and not exhausted.
Take a long walk before you eat. It is good to have some exercise before you eat as it makes you feel as if you have ‘earned’ it. If it is possible, walk to a nearby restaurant or food parlor and eat from there. Try to avoid late night snacks. While these will still be digested, it will take a long time and since you are not doing any physical activity at that time, it will most likely just deposit in the belly. Also, eating late at night upsets the acidic stability of the stomach and may give rise to painful ulcers.
Try to include as many nutrients in your food intake as possible. The best diet will have a balanced ration of proteins, vitamins and minerals. If all these steps are followed, in no time you will have reduced a considerable amount of weight and begun to look fit.
