Don’t be of those never finding answers for reasons diets fail, because it is you to succeed at losing weight quickly.
Take a minute to look at the reasons why most diets fail, and then find a healthy diet fix that bypasses these pitfalls.
Soon you will find yourself on track to optimal success.
Let’s look at the four key factors.
The average American dieter makes 4-6 dieting attempts per year. Clearly that means the first … and second … and third attempt weren’t successful.
It’s a vicious circle for reasons diets fail of demotivation that leaves many feeling like they cannot succeed without superhuman tenacity.
Below is a brief video I posted to YouTube about weight-loss success with fat burning foods and a process to enjoy as the pounds drop off naturally.
Maybe you are ready to throw in the (over sized) towel on dieting for good.
Unrealistic Calorie Intakes
You are on a one-way path to a fat loss plateau when this happens.
Yes, you should lower calorie intake to see fat loss results, but you need to do it in a way that maintains your “metabolic engine”.
The “starvation mode” method only sets you up to be of the reasons diets fail.
By consuming so little food, your body literally starts shutting down to conserve fuel.
Lack of Satiety-Boosting Nutrients
Couple protein with dietary fiber, found in fresh fruits and vegetables, and digestion will slow even further.
Another big issue for reasons diets fail and with most conventional diets is they fail to provide enough of the two most filling nutrients: protein and fiber.
You need protein to function optimally. It’s also breaks down slowest, providing the body with lasting satiety.
Many crash diet plans are very low in protein and reasons diets fail. While they recommend lots of vegetables, many discourage the consumption of fruit.
By making these two nutrients a focus of your plan instead, you can see faster, lasting results while actually enjoying your diet meal plan as a healthy diet.
(I always want to add that Yoga is a great compliment for serious weight-loss efforts, and here’s more on the importance of yoga in our life – yoga for good health related article.)
Time Consuming Meal Prep
You want to find an approach that gives you easy-to-implement and basic guidelines that help you realize true success with your program.
You want to feed your mind with success thoughts along the way, and is why I so often like to add that the Course in Miracles teaches to not be afraid to look within your heart.
This plan should not require hours of extra effort each week, but should be both mindfully and physically exciting.
When you find such a plan, it’ll be cake to stick with it.
Many diet plans are complicated enough to require this and are reasons diets fail. If that describes your diet, it’s no wonder if you’re failing.
Anyone willing to lose weight can diet for two weeks. This is foundational to The 2 Week Diet.
If your diet plan is designed to span months, this can be a motivation killer.
That’s excellent advice.
Chances are you’ve heard that any diet plan you use should follow a long-term approach.
Find a diet with a definite deadline.
Because that’s how long it takes to form long-term habits, two weeks is optimal. Two weeks is also a long enough to see good results, but not short enough to stay motivated.
