Dieting is more about the approach than the diet itself. It is about changing our mindset, shift your mind and shift the pounds.
Think about the diet you have chosen for yourself, if you are finding it particularly difficult to stick to it may not be the right one for you. What works for one person won’t work for eveyone. We all have different dietary habits and needs, so it is important to work out a diet that suits you.
Some of us might crave a cup of tea and a biscuit, whereas others might need pasta or other carbs. We often have habits that go back to our childhood and stopping those could be too much to handle. We may even have a fear of not having enough food which can spiral us into another emotional nightmare. Dieting is not as simple as it may seem.
We are constantly bombarded with messages from advertisers and scientists alike about what is good for us. Any diet is morelikely to work when you are ready for it, if you feel resentful then chances are it won’t work. You need to make yourself a priority.
Fasting is the most fashionable diet currently, but it can be damaging for the heart. There is an excess of fat disposal in the body which can be dangerous if you have an existing heart condition. This does level out after a few weeks though.
If in any doubt get your health checked out before embarking on any extreme diet plan.
