Dieting is tough! For many it is too tough to try. For some it’s too tough to maintain. And for others it’s a painful grind. So at what point does dieting get easier if at all?
I’ve tried many diets. Some I’ve maintained for long periods of time but some I’ve also failed. But what I’ve realised is what the real road block is, is breaking the habit of poor food choices!
This road block, For me, usually comes into play at about the third to fourth week. It is the breaking point. If I manage to sustain a diet for this amount of time all of a sudden the future weeks become alot easier and all becomes alot less of a grind.
This break through is all down to breaking the bad habits I’ve adopted around eating unhealthy. Once you get the momentum of a good solid routine of healthy food choices your brain starts to forget about any alternate unhealthy ways of eating. This process is the breaking point of your diet, although it is most likely the hardest time of your diet; It is the most important!
So from my personal experience if you have struggled from maintaining diets in the past. Try put everything you’ve got into getting past that three to four week milestone, and I can promise you. You will stop battling and start working with your new diet you have set yourself up for.
