So many bad diets out there mess with your machine, your bodacious body. Let’s get these inconvenient truths out on the table once and for all so you can work with the system you have and help your machine sing to get lifelong results!
- Don’t mess with the machine! As I already mentioned dieting can be like playing a game of Snakes & Ladders, remember that game. You land on a ladder and move forward a bunch of steps or you land on a snake and drop back. Following the rules of human physiology helps propel you forward – eating daily calories to allow for a slow weight loss (no less than 1,200 for women and 1,600 for men) for example. Here are some tips:
- Set a realistic goal with your doctor using BMI.
- Takes time to lose the junk in your trunk. Weight loss might be steady at first but is far from steady as you progress. You don’t lose 1-2 pounds/week every single week, until “ding” you’re there, don’t you wish! Also, be prepared to hit a plateau or two along your journey to Slim Town so you’re not caught off guard. The closer you are to your goal weight, the slower the weight loss will be.
- Take a Dieting Time Out if you need it. It’ll do you good to maintain your weight instead of gunning for a goal when you’re not ready.
