Does dieting ever get easier?

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.

Tips for maintaining that killer diet

Diets are no doubt an amazing tool to reach any goal in your fitness journey. If that would be for gaining muscle or losing fat, dieting is going to play a huge part in it!

However, although a diet is such a great thing to do, it is no doubt a hard thing to do and even harder thing to maintain. Alot of us will eventually build up the willpower after alot of thinking and contemplating, start it and then fail with in a matter of weeks or maybe even days. Even though we are fully aware of the benefits of the chosen diet and how it can benefit you.

So how can we maintain that killer diet? Well from personal experience I can tell you that it is hard and does take some strong inner willpower at times no matter what. But I have also picked up some great tips over the years and these may be the tips you need to maintain that diet and get the killer results you want.

Don’t let yourself get too hungry. When we get too hungry, we get sloppy. It is without a doubt alot easier to drive by a mcdonalds when you’ve just filled yourself up on some healthy food choices, compared to when you’re running on empty. When we are hungry our emotions are running high and the excuses start rolling in. I’m not saying dont let yourself feel hungry again and stuff your face at every available opportunity. But if you are vulnerable to poor food choices when hungry, maybe try not to let yourself get too hungry inbetween meals. A good trick is to always keep a healthy snack in your car or in your bag at work. Dont let the hunger get the better of you!

Preparation is key. Always try to prepare your meals ahead of time and even multiple meals if you know that you will be tight for time that day. How far you plan your meals is completly up to you, some people like to cook their meals one or two meals in advance whilst others like to prepare for the week ahead. But which ever your preferred way of preparing your healthy meals, you’ve got to make sure you follow through and do it. If you’re not preparing to succeed, then you’re preparing to fail.

Clear the cupboards. Let’s be honest, craving for those snacks round the house can be a real distraction to your diet and an even bigger problem if you let those cravings get the best of you. To help keep the unhealthy snacking at bay, get rid of any unhealthy snacks in your house. This way, you won’t have any sweets staring at you day in, day out waiting for you to crumble. out of sight, out of mind!

Stay motivated. And finally, do all you can to stay motivated. We all struggle at times no matter what and sometimes just remembering why you started is all you may need to keep you going! Maybe look at some fitness role models and try to reinspire yourself. Or maybe just looking at how far you’ve came is all you need to give you that extra push of momentum.

Hopefully these tips will help you out next time you find yourself struggling and reaching for those takeaway menus. These are only some tips that might help you out, if you think I’ve missed any then please comment and share. Just might be what somebody needs for that extra push!
