Know Your Goals


In business, it is said that a company who doesn’t have a business plan is planning to fail. The same could pretty much be said for dieting as well. Without knowing your specific short-term and long-term goals, you have no idea what you are doing, or what you should be doing. Do you have a specific amount of weight you want to lose?


Is there a specific time table for losing this weight? Do you have specific physical appearance goals? Writing down your goals is very important so is getting the right Gundry MD support system around you which will make losing weight so much easier. The more that is invested into this step, the better off you will be.


Choose Health First


Whatever diet you choose, please make it a healthy diet. Ensure that you are eating tons of plant based foods, monitoring your sodium intake, and that you are avoiding simple sugars. If those things were the only adjustments made to your current diet, you will then be in a much better nutritional state. Chase health first, then weight loss. The trick is that healthy foods naturally lead to better long-term weight loss.


Lifestyle vs Diet


How we see words in our mind is more important than their lexical dictionary definition. When some people use the word diet, they are speaking about something that is intended to be used short-term. The problem with these short-term strategies is that they are built to fail. They are are the poster boy for yo-yo dieting.


What is better is when we change our dietary lifestyle with a diet that in some form we intend to use for the rest of our life. This might mean at some points it might be a bit strict, other times a bit loose, but mostly somewhere in the happy middle that allows us to stay fit and trim. Fitness and great health are lifelong goals, not temporary fixes.


Patience Makes Everything Better


When writing about dieting, there are certain cliches that just fit. One very truthful, maybe also overused one is, “ you didn’t gain weight in one day, don’t expect to lose it in one day.” We belabor you with such sayings because weight loss should be approached in a logical, informed and rational manner.


At a very basic level, know the caloric deficit that is needed to lose 1 lb of fat. Use that knowledge to realize that many fast weight loss techniques are unhealthy. Take this knowledge to pace out your plan over a reasonable amount of time. When you have a rational understanding of weight loss and diet, you will also gain the patience to see your weight loss plan through to the point that your goals are achieved.


Find Professional Help


It is easy to believe that we know everything about diet because of the Internet. It is true that the average person can learn a ton of valuable information about nutrition and losing weight. The value of seeking a professional is not that they will tell you things that you haven’t already read, but more because they will act as an accountability partner.


What people struggle with more than anything on a diet is staying committed. It is so easy to fail on a diet when we do not have the right support system. Having external support also gives us a reason to stay on our diet because we don’t want to let down the other person who is helping us. Professional assistance is how all the famous actresses and models lose weight, and how they drop 50 lbs after having triplets before their new magazine cover. You deserve the same advantage.
