Before you cheat on your diet think about your old clothes in which you want to fit in, the compliments you are waiting for a long time, feeling healthy and many other things you decided of when you have started your diet. As we all heard about the proverb “slow and steady wins the race” so showing patience and believe towards your diet makes you win the race to be healthy. There are some people around, who always force you to go off diet “just once”, that is really not a problem until and unless this one time continues for a day, week, or month.
Do you always say no to treat?
Being on a diet does not mean that you always have to say no to treats but try to manage it smartly. If you are planning to eat lunch outside try to eat before and after meal lighter, also try to opt for roasted, grilled or baked preparations as these options are easily available outside. For eg. You can take roasted /grilled chicken or paneer tikka.
Stop nibbling unhealthy snacks
Be prepared for your hunger pangs in between your meals and carry healthy snacks with you. To resist unhealthy cravings try to include the food which is healthy. One very important point while following diet plan is to stop avoiding your hunger which can lead to overeating and push you toward an unhealthy lifestyle.
Does social support help you to stick to your diet plan?
If you get a compliment about your health and praise about your dedication to being healthy then obviously you feel motivated. This makes you more honest about following the diet. Never surround yourself with persons who always force you to cheat on your diet. If you don’t want to cheat on your diet stop thinking about the food which you are not allowed and always ask your nutritionist what you can eat rather than asking her about what will be restricted in your diet while following your diet plan.
Following your diet plan is a path of well being
If you are cheating on your diet think once how far you have already come. It does not matter that from how long you have been following your diet plan, it may be for one day but the decision of following your diet leads to a path of well being and helps you to achieve your aim to be healthy.
