Common approaches to dieting that may lead to failure
People that go on a diet usually will take the all or none approach which is not the best for making a behavioural change. We all have habits and some habits are bad and some are good. It’s near to impossible to change all your bad habits for the good over night. It’s much wiser to go for a small change, one that you’re ready to tackle for example drinking water and cutting out sweetened drinks, sodas & juice. After you have successfully established a new habit and proved to yourself that you can do it, pick a next one for example avoid skipping breakfast.
Some common behaviours:
Changing the entire diet into foods they don’t like – lets face it how long can you maintain eating stuff that you hate… a day?
Starving which only leads to unhappy life and binge eating – you can still enjoy food and be healthy at the same time.
Giving up after a while due to confusion – like with anything in life you need to educate yourself to get a better understanding, without the right knowledge the thought of healthy eating can be overwhelming which is totally understandable.
Change is possible you just got to believe and follow through, stay strong people!
