6 Good Ways to Stick to a Diet
Saying, “sticking to a diet regimen is difficult” is an understatement, and anyone who has tried to do the same knows this fact. The thing is, when you are on a diet, the rest of the world is still making merry with chocolates and pancakes. So if you really don’t want to fall off the wagon, here is how to stick to a diet:
1. Be realist, and choose a proper diet:
If you choose a diet that looks almost impossible to do even on the paper, then it will most probably fail when you implement it. So, the first step to sticking to a diet is to choose a proper one; a diet that balances out taste and calories and provides you with the requisite amount of nutrition.
2. Make a ‘check’ sheet:
Put in the effort to make a diary or staple a bunch of printouts with your diet plan printed and spread out according to calendar, and put little checkboxes in front of all the items. Before you go to sleep, take out five minutes and log your day’s progress. Eventually, this will give you enough boost to carry on.
3. Plan a reward day:
After every two weeks, keep a reward day for yourself; a day when you are allowed one sinfully decadent meal and not feel guilty about it. Think about that one meal to curb your cravings when you pass by that dessert store.
