Does anyone else find impossible to diet?
I do get motivated to exercise; but dieting is a complete different story.
I need my confort food.
Hi im about the same man... i excersize and all but i dont diet i lost 20 lbs just with intense workouts now im rock hard without dieting. Just try not to eat to many foods that have high frutose corn syrup in it
I think the best kind of 'diet' is where you make small changes to your eating habits. Changes that aren't temporary.
Eating progressively less sugar, cutting down on sweet drinks, adding more & more fruits & vegetables. These are all things I've done over time, not as temporary weight loss measures.
The changes in how I feel about food & how I feel from eating (sweets are still delicious but i know they make me feel like crap) is enough to reinforce these changes as permanent lifestyle changes.
I'm not alone!! I eat almost everything, I just try to control portions... after all, a life without pizza, wine and chocolate is no life at all!! Just focus on more fiber n less sugar...
For me, who to start with eats relatively healthy with no crazy cravings, the app my fitness pal has been an eye opener of my habits. It feel like a fun puzzle. I do not deprive myself-diets are punishments- but, a healthy lifestyle demands a bit of thinking on my part.
So here is my trip. Give your self a chat day or two. Shop, wash, cut and prep, this way when you open the fridge options are ready. Mass cook what you can on weekend that can last you all week.
I think for fitness/weight loss it is about ADDING better food rather than taking out comfort food. Then everything falls into it's own place.
I cant diet for the life of me. I stopped eating at night and drinking soft drinks and that helped me lose weight. But i have to start dieting because my body has paused
I exercise 3-4 days a week but i wont lose anything unless i change my diet.
Dieting, as in sticking to a low calorie or other quick fix diet for a limited time, is useless. As soon as you go back to your old ways you'll gain back again.
What you need to do is not dieting but start eating healthier. You don't need to go on a crazy super-healthy food regimen depriving yourself of everything. Even the fittest people on Skimble have cheat days when they eat whatever they want. The trick is to be mainly healthy and unhealthy sometimes instead of the other way around. Cut out sugars, soft drinks, fast food out of your daily diet. Eat them SOMETIMES, not daily or several times a week. It's hard to turn your mind around but in truth it is quite simple. Make your own food and carry healthy snacks around. I know that at least in the US people seem to eat out or takeaway all the time but really, you have the exact same amount of time as we have in Finland, where eating out is a special occasion that happens sometimes, not every day. Also, when you eat out it's easy to choose healthier options. Ask for vegetables instead of fries. Skip the dessert or have a piece of chocolate instead of huge slice of cheesecake. It's simple as that. It's all about your mindset, nothing else. Do you want this or not?
