The Top 5 of the Very Best Diet Tips
Diet is something most people dread, along with such scary stuff like going to the dentist. But diets are really not all that bad and with this sampling of the best diet tips, you will find that it can be relatively painless – not unlike a painless dentist.
One diet tip that should go on the top of the list of the very best diet tips is this:
Eat Less, Burn More.
Actually that is the weight loss program itself. If you programmed the calorie related aspects of your life around this tip, you will find yourself losing weight as effectively as you ever will on any diet program.
Create a vision board
The vision board is simply a real board where you put photos of things that you want to have. In this case, if you want a strong, healthy and slim body then find a body that is exactly what you want to have and post as many examples of this on the board as possible. Be sure that you will look at it each day and visualize having that body. If you need to have lower cholesterol numbers, get a photo of a lab result with the numbers you want. Time and again, this has been proven to be a very powerful and effective tool.
When eating, think small and frequent.
A three meal a day program is old school and ineffective for effective and lasting weight loss. Eating 6 to 8 small meals a day keeps your blood sugar stable and your hunger pangs at bay.
Everything in moderation, do nothing drastic.
You could almost hear the sigh of relief from those reading this tip. But it really is true, because your body is so well balanced and well-designed that it has contingency plans that go into immediate action at the slightest hint of an emergency or imbalance. And this is exactly how it interprets a sudden caloric reduction which accompanies crash diets, thus explaining why they never work.
Think lifestyle change, not diet.
Some people think that we are already hard wired to react adversely to the word diet. While I don’t know if this is true, it is an unassailable fact that to most people, diet sounds temporary. So think of what you will do as part of your weight loss or eat healthy program as a lifestyle change. That simple paradigm shift can work wonders.
