It always amazes me when people plan a diet, but cannot stick to the plan. Let's face it, most people set themselves up to fail! According to many statistics, dieting is problematic for 87% of the dieting population. This number is staggering considering the fact that most people setting out to loose weight, truly want to get thinner for one reason or another.
One of the primary reasons dieting is problematic is because most people do not have enough perseverance to stick with the diet as prescribed. When they do not get the quick effective weight loss like they want, they, for the most part, blame it on the diet itself.
Well, it's not the diet or diet plan that fails, it's the person who sets out with good intentions, but discontinues the directions of a specific diet.
For instance, a person cannot expect effective weight loss if they skip part of the directions such as how much of a particular food or calorie intake they can have during one meal. It's like baking a cake, if you happen to leave out the eggs or put in too much water, the batter gets messed up and the cake doesn't turn out right.
It sounds simple doesn't it? Well, in the end, it's not simple at all. This is true because most people give in to their cravings and make it hard on themselves. You may be saying to yourself, "How is this possible? I am trying really hard not to give in." Well, that may be true for some. For instance, the people with particular medical problems find a most difficult journey that actually produces effective weight loss. It is either their metabolism or some genetic disorder that keeps them from losing weight.
But what about the people who should do just fine on a diet? What keeps them from not losing weight? One primary reason is because they do not make a specific plan of action. If you are on a diet for effective weight loss, then don't go around the bakery, the bar, or the people that do not support you in your weight loss endeavor. Instead, get some support from your family and friends. When you have meals together, nine cases out of ten, they will cook or eat the things you are aloud to eat.
Another primary component that gets ditched in a diet is exercise. Try to do a little each day. You don't have to do X amount of crunches, sit-ups, or miles to exercise. Start off slowly doing something very simple and work your way up to say the crunches and sit-ups.
So what are you waiting for? If you truly want to have long term effective weight loss you have to take the first step by realizing you need to loose weight.
