Have you ever wondered why some people can start a diet or weight loss plan, lose all the weight they needed to lose, and then keep it off… while others are constantly struggling and fighting to shed the pounds? Why is that? I believe it has a lot to do with the diet mentality.
There is no doubt, and no arguing, that losing weight isn’t the easiest thing to accomplish for most of us. Overcoming the procrastination and getting started is the first hurdle, but it continues from there.
Next, we have to fight the hunger pangs and cravings in most cases, which knocks many out of the game right there.
After going through this cycle a few times you develop the attitude that this process is just too difficult and painful. In many cases you simply give up altogether. This is what I call the dieting mentality.
The good news is that it is not too tough to overcome the diet mentality. You only need to go about things a little differently.
You know how it is with most diets, you have to fret over what foods you can eat and you are usually stuck at eating those bland tasting ones that no one wants to eat. You know the kind I’m talking about.
The key is finding a diet plan that allows you to lose weight by still being able to eat the foods you enjoy eating now. The only difference is that you watch your portion sizes. Sound impossible? It’s not! And once you discover how to do it you will never have a problem losing weight… and keeping it off… again.
