We all get frustrated with the many diet programs we try at one time or another. Half the battle is actually sticking to it. Work or dinner parties, outings and/or celebrations can throw us off track. Dont get discouraged. Plan ahead as much as possible and keep note of the little things that can help you achieve the results you desire.
Breakfast for instance. If youre rushing out the door every morning without eating something youre more likely to be tempted by drive-thrus or snack machines etc. So if you dont have time to sit down and eat make sure you stock up on quick, low calorie items that wont add to your bulge. Yogurts, fresh fruit and/or toast are quick and easy foods to prepare and eat on the go.
When youre searching for options at lunch, remember that most restaurants cook their foods in a lot of oils and condiments, possibly deep-fried. If youre easily tempted by the high-fat, high calorie foods, its best to plan your lunch the night before, so you dont find yourself deep in the food court losing the battle. Avoid those types of foods and try to stay with diet programs that frown against that type of eating.
3pm sugar cravings? Sometimes they can consume you. If you find it hard to resist, find options that will squash that craving and not expand your waistline. One of my favorites is fiber one bars. 100 calories, high in fiber and the perfect amount of sweetness to kill the craving. Kelloggs also sells bars that are low in calories, yet very tasty.
Many of us forget that pops, juice and even alcohol contain a lot of sugar and calories. Youre better off to drink herbal teas and water and fill up on fiber rich foods.
Overall, there are many different diet programs out there, its important to find the one that works for your lifestyle and helps you lose weight quickly.
