If you’ve tried and failed to lose weight before, you may believe that diets don’t work for you. You’re probably right: traditional diets don’t work—at least not in the long term.
Think lifestyle change, not short- term diet
Permanent weight loss is not something that a “quick-fix” diet can achieve. Instead, think about weight loss as a permanent lifestyle change—a commitment to your health for life.
Find a cheering section
Social support means a lot. Seek out support—whether in the form of family, friends, or a support group–to get the encouragement you need.
Slow and steady wins the race
Aim to lose one to two pounds a week to ensure healthy weight loss. Losing weight too fast can take a toll on your mind and body, making you feel sluggish, drained, and sick.
Set goals to keep you motivated
Short-term goals, like wanting to fit into a bikini for the summer, usually don’t work as well as wanting to feel more confident or become healthier for your children’s sakes.
Use tools that help you track your progress
Keep a food journal and weigh yourself regularly, keeping track of each pound and inch you lose.
Keep in mind it may take some experimenting to find the right diet for your individual body. It’s important that you feel satisfied so that you can stick with it on a long-term basis.
