You’ve just started a new diet. Your enthusiasm to get that dream body is at an all time high. You’ve cut your calories. You’re eating no junk food and munching on celery sticks whilst your work colleagues are giving you a look mixed with sympathy and disgust. As the days creep by your motivation begins to dwindle and you slowly realise that the new diet enthusiasm is starting to fade. You start consuming less than favourable food choices and before you know it you’ve slipped back into old habits and the diet is completely out the window.
Sound familiar? If this is a scenario you can relate to, then I can guarantee that you’re taking the wrong approach to your nutrition.
Losing weight is not an easy task. But it is do-able. In fact, losing weight is relatively easy when you compare it to keeping the weight off for the long term.
If you can’t see yourself on the same diet programme one year from now, you are not going to stick to it. This relates to both your training and your nutrition. It all comes down to balance. Make small manageable changes that you can stick to.
