If you are feeling that your diet is never showing result, it could be because of any of these 6 mistakes you may be committing.
1. Crash dieting

You can’t just set a time period to lose weight fast, depriving yourself of all cravings, and then after that go back to your previous sway of eating. That’s what crash diets are. They work only for wedding days when the bride wants to look her best or for actors who need to shoot a particular portion with a certain body frame. If you want to get fit permanently, you need to diet rationally.
2. Not indulging in cravings once a while
What many women end up doing is, let themselves go on weekends after dieting for the whole week. There should be a balance because your body needs to be stable in order to lose weight. You should maintain healthy eating at all times and make it a part of your life. At the same time, you could give in to a craving, say French fries or a pastry, once in 2 days. Otherwise you will end up feeling irritated, frustrated, disinterested and low on energy.
3. Skipping meals
Starving yourself and going on fasts or detox diets is a very unhealthy way to lose weight. One looks weak and famished and also gains back the weight, just as quickly as they had lost it. A proper diet means there should be constant efforts to increase the metabolism of the body. Hence you should either have the standard 4 meals a day or have small meals throughout the day every 2-3 hours.
