A majority of first time dieters fail miserably. Let's say if 10 people went on a diet, chances are that only about 4 out of those 10 will successfully complete it. A common reason why people quit diet is that they are too harsh on themselves. They cut huge amounts of calories at once, which is eventually robs them off all the energy.
Here are five of the most common reasons why diets fail:
1. NOT CONSIDERING EVENTS IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Before you start dieting make sure there aren't any important events approaching in the very near future. It can be anything work travels, weddings, birthday parties, or even an overdue vacation. Trying to find the best foods conducive to dieting can be troublesome on the run. If you are a student, make sure your exams don't clash with the period when you are on a diet. The stress of exams plus stress that comes with calorie restriction during dieting will not only mess up your grades but also your mood and brain.
2. EXCESSIVE RESTRICTION OR CRASH DIETING
Another reason why people quit their diet is that they go too harsh on themselves at once, which eventually robs them off all the energy. A reduction in carbohydrates during a diet is taken to a whole new level of insanity. Consuming very little to almost zero carbohydrates is a very common error that most people do. Extremely low carbohydrate dies are not for the long haul. Let things sink in gradually on a weekly or day to day basis. Not a once!!
3. THE MENTALITY OF ALL OR NOTHING
When people go on a diet, for the first few days, there are very meticulous about their eating. They get into it so hard that eating even a small serving of a desert or a piece of chocolate makes them feel miserable. They think they messed it up! What follows after is a hinge on these foods. This binge is followed by guilty and a feeling of being weak-minded and the negative self-talk starts. The next step includes promising yourself to be stricter, which leads to more binges and shame and a Vicious cycle is created. Not to mention that some people try to compensate for the extra food rated by over-exercising, fasting, or pursuing this again, is a mistake.
4. NOT HAVING A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT
Some people are self-motivated. They can fight against all the resistance in the way of their goal. However, there are other people who perform best when they have a support system. This support system may include family friends or even colleagues. Make sure you stay around such people who support and appreciate your goals of change. Stay away from the people who don't value your efforts.
5. NOT PREPARING IN ADVANCE
Preparing your meals in advance has many benefits m the best if you don't have to think about it when you are hungry. This thinking that is driven by hunger is the cause of all that junk food you order. Not only will the preparation of meals in advance help you track your calories better, but it will also keep you from cheating and hunger pangs. A kitchen weighing scales can be a great tool as well. Prepare your meals in advance for the day by walking up early or the night before, it's your choice.
