Shifting from one food regime to another is always difficult; like every new beginning. But there are some widespread problems people face when starting a new diet. Here we’ll present you some of them and will also give you some useful tips how to solve them.
“Good” old habits
A midnight snack? Or your “sin” might be some milk chocolate mixed with fruits and ice cream? Yes, we do believe you fruits are healthy but probably this is not the healthiest way to eat them. A common difficulty among people on a new diet is to get rid of the old, unhealthy and unpleasant habits. It’s not okay to save a liiiiiiitle bit of that Snickers’ ice cream just in case you want something sweet. It’s not also okay to keep fooling yourself that this tiny chocolate bar at 2 a.m. won’t do any harm. Self-discipline and full dedication to a given food regime is your key to success. We know it’s hard. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t worth the effort.
Off the budget
If you want your diet to include diverse nutrients, prepare to put your hands deep into your pockets. Of course there are many popular and common products that have affordable prices. But quinoa, lycee, buckwheat flour and many more recipes including these and other products, gained popularity in the last decade. Still, in some countries the prices of these products are relatively high according to the average wages. Eating healthy isn’t necessarily expensive, but the diversity of fruits, vegetables and other nutrients you need to have in your kitchen may cost you more than you’ve expected.
If your regime consists of 5 small meals a day than you must take exactly “5 small meals a day”. Not 6, not 4, but exactly 5. There is reason why nutritionists make an individual diet according to your health and lifestyle. Do your best to follow the recommendations and stay away from the “forbidden things”. You’re the one who’s trying to make a change in his life and this change must start with your attitude. If you’re sneaking small bars of chocolate and midnight snacks, then you’re only fooling yourself and losing precious time in effortless goal.
Put your needs in first place, not your preferences
We often forget that it’s not important what we like, but what our body really needs. Nobody’s going to force you to eat some horrible things. But if your diet includes boiled, unflavored rice, then rice it is. We can’t monitor what’s happening in our body 24/7, that’s why we need to trust the food regime that the expert made for us. Most of our health issues are due to inadequate nutrition; the slim figure is of course a benefit and at the same time helps reduce the pressure in our joints. Remember that no matter how hard it could be, the valuable result requires time and patience, but eventually there will be a noticeable result.
We remind you again that if you’re playing tricks, you’re only fooling yourself. Self-discipline, efforts and a lot of faith are required to fulfill your goals, but within time you can be sure that every small, single battle was important.
