If you are someone who has been trying to shed a few pounds but is unable to do so then here are a few mistakes that have been done and need to avoid!
Starting without a plan
As they say ?failing to plan is planning to fail?, this is so true when it comes to trying anything new in life. Weight loss is easy only if you make a plan and stick to it. So, the first thing that needs to be done is stocking your fridge with all healthy eatables and get rid of anything which is unhealthy but tempting.
So, get rid of all the chips, chocolates in your fridge and replace them with healthier alternatives such as fruits, vegetables, healthier chips with low sodium which are bakes and dark chocolate. This will make your life much easier and the temptation to cheat is less. Also, make sure you get apple cider vinegar and some activated charcoal powder. These help to get rid of toxins in the body which also helps to lose weight.
Not eating healthy
A lot of people think that simply working out is going to help them reach their goal weight. This is incorrect, although the workout is important, diet plays an even larger role when it comes to gaining or losing weight. This doesn?t mean that you need to survive in salad and soups. Your diet needs to be balanced with all the nutrients. So, you can still have your rice and pasta but you need to keep an eye on your portions. Try to be innovative with your recipes because if the food is repetitive, you might get tired of it.
So, if you like pizza make a healthier alternative such as cauliflower, this is something you can indulge in guilt-free. Pair up your diet with a good workout regime. If going to the gym is not your cup of tea then make your workouts interesting by playing a sport that you like such as badminton, swimming. This way you will be burning calories without even knowing it. Just like food with workouts be innovative to avoid boredom.
Being too hard on yourself
When it comes to making any change on our body or even lifestyle for that matter, you need to avoid being too hard on yourself. If you restrict yourself too much eventually you will get tired and then binge eat which will bring back all the fat even faster. You are a human, so you will take time. So, if you want to indulge in a cake go for it, make sure you control your portions and do not go overboard.
Lastly, giving up on yourself too quickly. Let?s face it we all eat healthily and work out for a week and then expect our body to change overnight, and if it doesn?t show any changes we simply give up! Remember you didn?t gain all that weight in a day so losing is also going to take some time. Just stay true to your routine, be consistent and make sure the above mistakes are avoided.
