Try all these popular miracle-sounding diets – lose weight and get fit. But for some reason, a few weeks later, there is another problem you have to deal with: the so-called “rebound” effect that makes all the pounds you’ve lost come back and even brings you some extras.
We have decided to share these simple tricks that will help you keep those pounds off and forget about the curse of the “rebound” effect.
Your Diet Plan Shouldn’t Make You Feel Bad Or Bring Negative Emotions
You shouldn’t feel bad about losing weight. Your diet must be blameless. That is, if each food you eat during the day generates a strong feeling of guilt or makes you want to punish yourself for eating something sweet, you will not get the desired result in the short term. The best thing to do is to abandon these extreme diets.
Get rid of those negative feelings, focus on the positive things and think about what you have already achieved. Keep up the good work and remember that it’s okay to cheat on your diet sometimes.
Choose Controlled Diets But Not Super Strict Ones
If you have decided to start a radical diet or a very strict diet plan that makes you suffer physically, prepare to experience side effects and health problems such as anxiety, stress, and consequent hair loss, sadness, nervousness, loss of concentration, and risk of falling in eating disorders.
The best idea is to consult with your nutritionist beforehand. Let the professional come up with an eating plan suited to your needs and your body’s capabilities.
Set Realistic Goals
The first thing to realize is that shedding pounds as fast as possible and being as good as a model in a week is not a realistic or achievable goal to set yourself.
Remember that it is bad for your health to make a sudden and complete change in your eating behavior. It’s best to take small but healthy steps every day and make slow but steady progress.
Only then is it possible to have a beautiful and healthy body according to your constitutional type.
Trust The Power Of Your Mind
Your mind plays the most important role in achieving every goal you set for yourself – it really helps you overcome the fear of failure.
Whenever you feel like skipping the gym or eating something “forbidden”, focus on your goals and try to keep your mind active and engaged. Have fun, because if you are bored, you will feel hungry.
Don’t Forget To Track Your Progress
You should weigh yourself daily and record any changes. This will help you track and evaluate your progress, even if it is minimal.
Remember that slow and steady progress is the ideal way to lose and maintain weight and improve your habits without much suffering.
And Yes! Exercise!
A healthy diet plan will help you lose weight. However, you won’t gain muscle mass or get a toned body without exercising. You don’t have to spend your entire life in a gym, just take small steps and try to do something that you really enjoy.
15 minutes a day is a good starting point! Physical activity really helps you lose weight faster. In addition, it makes you feel better: it reduces the risk of various diseases and improves the functioning of the brain.
