You started a new diet, you worked hard and paid attention to what you were eating, you lost weight and felt great---fast forward a week, a few months or a year, you gained all your weight back and then some.
- Focused on quantity- not quality
- No plan
- No accountability/lost motivation
- Your job
- Your environment
- Too restrictive
- Trying to lose too much to fast
Losing weight should be a slow and steady process, done in a manner that is focused on incorporating healthy eating into your lifestyle- not the other way around. While we can’t do anything about your career or environment, we can make small changes to your current habits to set you up for success.
Here are some things to try:
- Look at the types of food you are eating- if they didn’t come from the perimeter of the grocery store they are likely to be processed. Clean it up a bit, even if you start with one meal at a time.
- Get a plan of action and how long you can expect to lose. Remember you shouldn’t be losing more than 1-2 lbs per week.
- Hire a nutrition coach (book an appoint with ours here)
- Don’t restrict yourself- 100% compliance doesn’t work for most people
Nutrition should be simple and so should your mindset.
Think simple, keep it simple, and you will not only get results- but you will be able to keep them!
