Today we talk about the beginning of a diet and what does it actually mean. Many mistake a diet with fasting or not eating anything for a a while. Thats just a mistake.
A diet is a eating plan which needs to be structured individually for the individual body type to be effective.
This brings the conclusion that most of the diets out there are not fit for everybody, specially those who promise results in three weeks!
We had talked about in our last blog, with what you can start slowly watching your habbits of eating. Here is the link to the previous blog:
Of course i dont say that all diets wont work. There are many sorts of diets out there and for beginners, anything with the word „diet“ can help loose a few pounds.
The most tricky part to do a diet is to convince yourself and have the motivation going because it will not work as fast and easy as many often like to sell it.
Besides that, a diet plan should contain the amounts of calories which are allowed to take daily but this part is rather for the advanced people so dont count your calories as a beginner. Set yourself a calorie goal instead and try to reach it everyday. Otherwise you would sabotage your own progress!
After you set yourself the calorie goal, the hard part will begin. It starts with choosing the food you need to achieve your daily goal and to cut off processed food which contain too much calories and lesser filling effect to your stomach.
Try to remove all trans fats, high sugar and salt containing „food“. Now salt is needed but many of the food these days contain a lot which will do more harm to your body than good. (Too much salt binds water under your skin which makes you gain more weight)
Eat beans, lean meat, fruits and vegetables in a balanced way. More salads and nuts than sugar snacks or chips. Cook yourself and know whats inside your meal! This phase of the first two months will be the hardest and the urge to just give up will be high.
But i can assure you that after your system accepted the change, you will not stop anymore because you will feel 100% better, lighter and your mood will be changed too. You will get lesser angry and start more to enjoy and maybe even start to workout and set new goals for the future.
Dont ever give up in the first months because after the time you will thank yourself for doing it.
Thats for today, if you got any question- post a comment and we will answer it in the next blog.
Thank your for reading and start your diet! 😄
