Diet Plan vs. Healthy Eating
Ever wondered how some people just seem to stick to their good eating habits? Generally these are the same people who are envied at dinner parties, on the beach, at malls and just about everywhere they go, simply because they always seem to look so good and never diet.
Why is it then, even though youíve dieted, you find yourself on the other side of the fence? After all, isnít a diet supposed to make you look and feel better? Why is it then, every time you go on diet you end up back at square one? Fat, depressed and looking worse than what you did before you went on diet.
If you want to lose the weight and keep it off, donít diet. Yes, thatís what I said: donít diet. Diets donít work for long-term weight loss. Diets are short, quick fixes that last only a couple of weeks or months and once the "dieting phase" is over what do you do? You guessed it: return to your old eating habits and watch the weight pile back on with a vengeance.
In order to maintain lifelong weight loss, donít give up food. Give up dieting instead. Get yourself educated on healthy eating and completely change the way you eat. Donít eat healthy because you have to, do it because you want to. Before you know it, youíll be a healthy eater by habit and not think twice about it.
Youíll be surprised at how tasty healthy food can be. Do your research and get yourself a cookbook for some inspiring ideas.
And remember: donít view healthy eating as a diet and never ever confuse the two. A diet is something you do for a short period while healthy eating is something you do for life. If you are serious about wanting to lose weight and maintain a healthy, balanced life, make healthy eating a priority and reap the rewards.
