Stick to It

How to avoid the pitfalls, temptations, and mistakes of dieting.

How many times a day, a week, or a month do you fail at your diet? You have good intentions, but when it’s time for dessert or you’re hungry for a snack, you give in to temptation and overindulge in high-calorie foods you know you shouldn’t eat.

No one will ever tell you that sticking to a healthy diet is easy. Losing weight is hard work that takes dedication and strength of will. The good news is millions of people are successful at it and you can be one of them. Follow these tips to help you stick to your diet plan.

Be Realistic

If you’re struggling to stay on track with your diet, you’re not alone. There will be days you fail, but there’s always tomorrow. Expect some setbacks, but keep moving forward and learn from your mistakes. Set realistic diet and weight-loss goals. Otherwise you’ll become discouraged and give up. Aim to lose no more than one to two pounds a week and you’ll meet your goal week after week.

Keep Junk out of Your House

When chips, cookies, sodas, and candy are in the next room, it’s awfully hard to say no. You may keep treats in the house for the kids, but they don’t need junk food either. So keep it out of your grocery cart and out of your cabinets. When the kids bring it home from parties or holidays, let them choose a few pieces and then immediately throw the rest out.

Allow for Indulgences

Why do you crave whatever you can’t have? All you can think about it that slice of pizza. After you’ve indulged with one slice and “ruined” your diet, you may feel tempted to finish off the whole pie. Smart dieting means allowing for an occasional indulgence so you won’t feel deprived and overindulge. Give in occasionally, but do it purposefully and with set limits.

Stay Accountable

When everyone around you is eating and drinking without a second thought, it can be easy to ditch your diet and join in. To avoid this, find an accountability partner to diet with you. Whether it’s your spouse, co-worker, or friend, it’s a lot easier to make new lifestyle changes when you have someone by your side.
Use a Food Journal

You’ll be more likely to stick to your diet if you track what you eat and drink, whether in a small notebook, an online food tracker, or with an app. When you know you have to record that donut in your journal, you’ll be less likely to eat it. In addition to your food and drink, track your weight loss. As you see your progress, you’ll be motivated to keep going.

Have Healthy Snacks on Hand

Snacks can be part of a weight loss plan if they are low-calorie and eaten in moderation. They can also be your downfall if you’re not careful. Plan ahead and keep healthy snacks on hand so you have no excuse. Fruit, veggie sticks, yogurt, nuts, seeds, hard-boiled eggs, cheese sticks, and beef jerky make easy and healthy snacks to eat on the go.

Be Mindful

Learning to be mindful about what you eat plays a big part in making healthy food choices. This means enjoying your food, being thankful for the food you’re enjoying, eating only when you’re truly hungry, avoiding emotional eating, and stopping eating. Do these things and you’ll be less likely to overeat and sabotage your diet efforts.
