Ready to Stop Yo-Yo Dieting? Keep Reading...

Are you a yo-yo dieter? If you are, you are indeed not alone. The process of losing a significant amount of weight, before regaining all or most of it, and then repeating the process time and time again is a frustrating experience shared by people all over the world (trust me, I know firsthand!!)

Just as you feel like you are making progress and getting somewhere with your weight loss, you find yourself slipping back into bad habits, and before you know it, you are back where you started. In some cases, people end up even heavier than they were initially. Managing your weight in this way is neither healthy nor sustainable, and will not do your self-esteem much good either, as you may feel like you are continually failing yourself. If you are ready to break this cycle, here are a few tips to help you on your way.

Think about your attitude towards food, and any issues that you may have

When it comes to weight loss, this is one of the most important things that you can do. You will never be successful in losing weight if you haven’t considered your feelings and attitudes towards food and diets, and if you don’t deal with any underlying issues surrounding it, nothing will work in the longer term. It may be something simple, but more often than not, there are a variety of factors which, when combined, have made you gain the weight or stopped you from losing any. Perhaps you comfort eat, or eat out of boredom? Are you disorganized, so end up grabbing that calorific takeout on your way home from work? Maybe you are an inexperienced cook and don’t know how to prepare healthy meals. Working out the reasons behind the problem will help you to gain much more control over the situation. If you feel like you have some extreme emotions or issues when it comes to food, you may want to consider speaking to a counselor or therapist to help you regain control and deal with them.

Clean Out The Kitchen

It can be incredibly difficult to follow any healthy eating plan if your kitchen is full of unhealthy and high calorie/carb or nutritionally devoid snacks and food. If you have a family or roommates, get them on board too, so that you can’t use the excuse that they are available for them. Dispose of anything that isn’t providing your body with nutritional goodness - anything overly processed, salty and prepackaged, or full of added sugar or preservatives. Ready meals and jars of sauces may be convenient after a hard day at work, but they, as a whole, are relatively devoid of nutrition. Do a big grocery shop and fill your cabinets and refrigerator with fresh fruit and vegetables and healthier alternatives. Don’t completely deny yourself a treat - a piece of chocolate here or slice of cake there isn’t going to hurt, and in fact, can be a part of a balanced diet, but make sure it is an occasional treat.

Research Healthy Eating Plans

There are hundreds of thousands of eating plans out there, and it is essential to do your research and find one that is suitable for you - some will only make yo-yo dieting worse as they aren’t sustainable for more than a few weeks. Others can be implemented as a life long healthy eating plan rather than a short term diet. This noom review gives you an idea of one such plan you may want to take a look at. However, speaking with your doctor or a nutritionist that can tailor a plan specifically for you is always a good way to go!

Learn To Cook

For many people, especially these days where we rely heavily on convenience foods, an inability to cook is one of the main reasons why people struggle to maintain a healthy weight. Learning to prepare exciting, yet healthy meals, means you are less likely to pick up Chinese takeout or reach for the cookie jar just because you want something satisfying to eat. Invest in some herbs and spices and learn how to use them in your everyday meals and slowly build up your repertoire. Look for healthy swaps where possible - can you swap that heavy cream out for natural yogurt? If time is an issue, as it is for lots of us, could you invest in a slow cooker so that you can walk in after a day at work to a hearty and healthy home cooked meal? Experiment with flavors and recipes, and most importantly, have fun with them.

Turning Your Life Around? It Just Needs A Kick-Start

It is very easy in life to reach a point where enough is enough. We can get fed up with how we feel, how we look, how we act and how our lives are going in general. It could be a photo at a party that catches you unaware; it could be how your actions are affecting someone, it could be how bad you feel in your job - sometimes, push will come to shove, and you'll be forced into change. That's not a bad thing - but sometimes that point won't come. If you are thinking of following certain paths to make your life better, you shouldn't delay.

As easy as it is to stay stuck in a rut in regards to your physical health, your mental health, your career or your hygiene - it can be just as easy to start upon a better path. Simply put, we need to break it down. What are you going to do each and every day to make your life a little bit better? Will you stop snacking, will you be nicer? Will you put pen to paper and write that novel idea down? Take it one day at a time and make your journey as easy as possible. When we look months ahead, we can break down and fail quite easily. No worries though, you just need to pick yourself up. Remember that help is always available.

Yep - it's true. No matter what your goal is whether you want to lose weight, or jump into a more satisfying career path, you can find advice everywhere these days - thanks to the internet. With tutorials and how-to methods in abundance, you should never be without guidance. You only need to reach out and grab it - if you're looking to lose weight take this weight loss article as a good example of that. What's more, if you look, you are certain to find communities of people in the same position as you who are on the same path as you in places like Reddit or Twitter - or even dedicated forums. If you’re trying to turn your life around for whatever reason, you won’t be alone and with some basic research you’ll be able to find a set of like minded people who can give you advice and help spur you forward.

Dedication is your main tool when it comes to changing your life as well as discipline. Both of these blend together to make commitment and if you are not committed to your own personal mission to change something in your life for the better, you'll find it harder. Changing your life around is an uphill struggle, so don't burden yourself with laziness and unhelpful thoughts that will only make your personal journey harder. They are not helpful in the slightest. If you're not dedicated, you won't make room for the changes you need. If you're not disciplined, you'll find it harder to stick to the path you have chosen. Most of all, a life changing journey requires that you actually start it...

Get in Shape with my Simple Fitness Guide!

The human body is a beautiful thing, and you are probably perfect just the way you are. Nonetheless, most of us would like to lose a few pounds and tone up. If nothing else, it will send our confidence levels through the roof.

However, there’s nothing worse than pushing your body to the limit only to see minimal results. Hard work isn’t the only crucial factor to your weight loss. It’s equally important that the plan you are following is the right one. Otherwise, you’ll never reach your goals.


Here are my tips to help make sure that you get one step closer to your goal!

 

Stick To The Right Plan

To lose weight, you’ve got to start burning more calories than you consume. If you want the best results, though, it will be a little more complex than that. Subsequently, you need to equip yourself with the right plan of action.

As many of you will already know, I run my own fitness and wellness business. Our 10-week plan can help you shed up to 20lbs if you follow it properly. It’s the perfect foundation for anyone looking to kickstart their weight loss goals.

Alternatively, you might opt for another plan. In either situation, the key is to find one that works for you and stick to it.

 

Drink More Water

Abs are built in the gym, but they’re revealed in the kitchen. If you are going to take your weight loss seriously, it’s imperative that you employ a good diet.

There are many diets and healthy eating plans on the market. Once again, I can help you with this area. Regardless of what option you choose, though, I can guarantee that water plays a major part. Staying hydrated is key for the body while the 0 calories is great for anyone looking to lose some weight.

If there’s just one dietary change you make, this should be it.

 

Sleep Better

Sleeping is one of the most important parts of the entire day. If you aren’t getting enough, then you could be restricting your results.

Your body needs time to recuperate, especially if you’ve been working out. Besides, a good rest will leave you with more energy, which will allow you to achieve more the following day.

If you struggle to get to sleep at night, there are plenty of products that can be of assistance. They could be the greatest investment you ever make.

 

Treat Your Body After Weight Loss

The human body is incredibly versatile. But even so, it might struggle to adapt following the weight loss. It’s imperative that you help it.

Your skin is particularly vulnerable. Body contouring is a great way to help it look its best following significant weight loss. Not only will it improve your appearance, but it will also actively make life more comfortable. 

The aftercare will make a huge difference to your life. Follow this up by sticking to your new healthy lifestyle, and you’ll be a far happier woman.
